    I love the side diamonds.  The emerald stone is already stunning, but I love the unique touch of the side stones.

    I usually love side diamonds, but I fell like those ones are out of proportion with the emerald cut stone.

    i think you still get a classic look with the first ring and because the side stones are truly accents and not overpowering at all, they add an element of uniqueness

    Of these two rings, I prefer the second. Like PPs, I think the diamonds look out of proportion in the first ring. I am all for side diamonds but agree that baguettes would look better.

    I like the side diamonds because it’s different than most. If you wanted to change the shape or size, that’s the beauty of custom! 

    I saw one with 3 small round diamonds on each side that was beautiful. It was 2 next to the center stone and then one below that creating a triangle shape. It was really pretty! They added some visual interest without taking away from the center stone because they were very small.

    I like the idea of the side stones, but dont know that I love the round with the emerald cut. I think baguettes or trillion cut would flow better on the side.

    I voted side diamonds – but agree that baguettes would suit the emerald shape better than rounds

    I love an emerald solitaire.  The cut has so much hidden depth.  I think it does best when allowed to stnad alone and carry a piece of jewelry based on its own beauty.

    kd1025 :  I like the sidestones in the photo, but I think in reality it’s going to look disproportionate and weird (I see some posters above agree).  Any chance of getting the little teeny ones that are embedded in the band without the sidestones?  It’d be a nice compromise.

    I don’t find either one to be particularly attractive, sorry. I would do baguette sides w/ or w/o claw prongs. Is this moissy? Because I don’t know if they make moissy baguettes. These are pave, but you get the idea.
