panilipiec : oh my god I love your ring! And don’t worry, you aren’t the only European Bee either. In Norther Europe, we don’t do big stones and solitaires are almost always set in pave rather than on prongs because it’s considered practical (and it is!)
Mine’s 0.22ct thanks to the side stones, and perfect for me. And it looks like a little flower. Cute!

peegee : It doesn’t get my back up. I have a thought when I see a ring setting, and then I move on from it. Doesn’t make me mad. If someone thinks something about my ring, that’s their opinion as well. Assume about my lifestyle and finances all you want.
I think we have all adequately answered the OP’s question. I’m done with this thread.

courtneysokal : I’m not assuming about your personal lifestyle and finances, but that is what people are doing when judging others as trying to pass off a cluster as a larger stone, or assuming they don’t have the money for a solitaire or whatever. I personally don’t care about your ring, lifestyle or whatever, nor do I care about anyone’s, but when I see people with the attitude of being offended by someone trying to “pass something off” it makes me wonder about their character and and why they would be so insecure as to worry about such silly things. If you aren’t worrying about it then cool, I guess my comment wasn’t really directed at you.

I think clusters are very pretty, however it really is a personal thing. Some people only like certain shapes, clusters, halos, 3 stone, coloured stones… One would need to find out her preference.

I dunno if this is considered a cluster, maybe? But I love it… for a RHR though. I wouldn’t have liked it for a e-ring. I prefer a solitare style for e-ring.

In general I’m not a fan, personally, but I do love the ones that look like flowers like tolkenbee’s!

I absolutly love them! I think mine would be considered a cluster because I have a double halo around a small center diamond… not 100% sure. Anyways though, I think that they can be done so beautifully, but like other bees have said: it all depends on the woman. Definetly find a friend that can do some poking around to get a feel of what she likes and if he can get a life time warranty. My SIL’s ring was also a cluster and she lost the same diamond over and over again. Because there was no warranty, she eventually just had enough and they bought her a new ring.

This is the one we eventually will be using for my engagement ring after it is resized, cleaned,and a new layer and is added to make it look refreshed. It is my grandma engagement ring and since I was little i have always loved the ring. I love unique and vintage rings so a solitaire ring just wouldn’t make me happy like this one. Plus it was hers so it makes it even more special. My problem is i have no idea on what kind of band to wear it with. So any suggestions would be helpful.
