Since your asking for pics, here is my original set with the custom made band. I lost a baguette in my wedding band, so I started wearing my original e-ring with a thin twist band for a short period of time, until my reset. I also attached the reset. It’s not round, which was part of the reason I didn’t post pics with my first post (that and being in a rush) but thought it might be interesting to see the same stone paired various ways and as a solitaire and as a three stone. Even though it’s a pear. Here is her transition. I think she shines more in my new set. I had double baguettes in the original which really took away from it.

I’m a sucker for tapered baguette engagement rings. They’re so beautiful and timeless.

They’re both very pretty but I prefer the solitaire. In my opinion there’s something so classic and beautiful about a solitaire that you can’t go wrong.

I love the second one (solitaire) so classic

I have a tapered baguette ring and while I love it – finding a perfect band was so tricky. The solitaire will give you carte blanche with bands.

You just can’t go wrong with that solitaire…so simple, elegant and really highlights that center stone. You could really pair any e band with it and if you are into stacking, then the solitaire would be a better choice imo.

I love the solitaire, I think it’s traditional and romantic, and it looks just lovely on you!
