thebridetobee :  How about adding a (possibly custom) ring wrap or enhancer? You could have a jeweler rotate the head if necessary, but that might give you the best of both.

That looks incredibly busy and pointy for a ring that will be worn every day. I can see the edges catching on things repeatedly. It’s a fine choice for a once in a while right hand ring but I’d never pick it for an engagement ring.

I love the simple elegance of the original.  The second one is beautiful, but the snowflake thing is kind of a trend right now, and I worry that you will tire of it.

thebridetobee :  The cluster is gorgeous, but I think it would be so fragile.

the kite set is nice, as long as you’re not stuck with the rest of it.. If you really love it, I would recommend a guard, so that you can leave the solitaire as is.  There have been quite the number of frankenstein creations in my jewelry box because I got bored with simplicity.  Only later wishing I had the clean classic look back.  Think long and hard about it <3

I think if you love it, go for it. The idea of a ring wrap is a cool idea so you can have the best of both worlds tho. 

The idea that anything is a trend is a bit silly in my opinion, styles come and go yes but the solitaire is also just a trend that’s only lasted because people worry whatever trend they preffer isnt ‘traditional’ enough. I am not suggesting solitaires aren’t stunning tho, because they surely are.

Honestly not a fan. I would look around at the many options for wraps so you can have the best of both worlds.

I love the cluster and I want one. I could see it being unpractical for daily use though. Is there an option to have a setting like that in a rhr? I’d go with that.

Yes a wrap maybe if you like that sparkly pointy look, which is quite fun. I would leave the actual original ring alone though, it’s beautiful.

As many PPs have mentioned, I would do a wrap so you can have the more flashy look when you want but also still have the classic ring setting.

I don’t know which would happen first for me–I’d either destroy the cluster or ruin half my clothes with it. Eventually both.

I LOVE that second set. It’s elegant and regal.

I’m a fan of spiky halos, tiaras, and snowflakes, so that’s my bias.

elderberry :  Good point. The kite setting is also pretty trendy and there’s probably a way to get the look of a kite setting without rotating the center stone. Bonus – if she has a solitaire gemstone, she could wear the wrap around that when she wants to wear her current ring as a solitaire.

I think you should get a wrap or just go with the cluster. Be unique and do what makes you happy now. Everyone has a solitare, and if you don’t like it in 10 years, just change it up again. That’s the fun part about jewelry.
