Long time lurker! I was hoping I could get some opinions on this set before committing to this wedding band. I love the bubbled/scalloped look, but I’m hoping it’s not something I will grow old of after time. Wondering if I should play it safe with a flat, more traditional band, versus this stacked scalloped look?
Does this come across as too gaudy/tacky in your opinion?

Not too gaudy. Add a slightly wider plain band for a special anniversary!

This bubble style is gorgeous in my opinion but I like it with either one of the bands to make it stand out. In this case, you already own the Ering, I’d keep looking personally.

newbeenegaged01 : personally I would never trust that shared single prong type setting. My sister’s engagement ring has the 2 main stones set that way and she already lost one and had to send it in to be replaced (thankfully she did have a warranty and had kept up with the visits to keep it active) and she has only had it a little over a year. I personally prefer plain bands but if you want diamond bands my advice would be to go with either bezel or channel setting, they are the most secure.

I love the shared prong look above all others. However, you must commit to having a prong check/tightening every six months.
You will most probably also have to wear a spacer band between the two rings, or else get them soldered. The exposed girdles of the stones will “saw” away at the ring next to it. It is the downfall of this type setting.
But oh what a beautiful set!!!

I think it’s a gorgeous set and if you love it- go for it. You are also familiar with your lifestyle and habits- do you have a tendency do be hard on your hands? That would be a big part of the decision for me.
I’d probably also look for a smaller plain band to wear between the two bands and I’d also look for a simple plain band to wear at times when I wanted something a little more low key – but that’s always something I advocate because I did it (eternity band as well as a plain gold band) and I’m really glad I did. I wore the eternity band with my set for quite a while and then I felt like I wanted to put it away to keep it from getting damaged doing my every day life.

I love the look of the bubble band with it!

I like it just not sure about the gap. I usually don’t mind a gap but this one is different to me for some reason. Beautiful rings though!

This set is beautiful, and you should get what you love! For me, a low maintenance set was a priority – it sounds like this one might be a bit more hands-on. If that’s not an issue though you should go for it!

I think it’s gorgeous but agree with others that the style is a bit delicate. If your lifestyle is suitable and you think you’ll be disciplined enough go be very careful and take it in for regular maintenance, then go for it, but I would buy a plain band as well to wear when you can’t wear these beautiful rings

I think that set is stunning! Like others have said, the shared single prong setting scares me!!!!

I just changed my e-ring setting to a bubble pave setting like that! I just dropped my old e-ring off for it to be changed into the new setting. I LOVVEEE bubble pave! I will post a pic when I get my ring back!
Now it is true that the prongs have to be tightened more. However, my jeweler was able to set the bottom of the pave into a bezel. It’s hard to explain, I’ll share a picture of the display version of my band. My center diamond is actually an emerald diamond, but this is an exact replica of the setting that was in the display case. Adding the gold bezel on the bottom of the bubble pave helps keep the stones safe and I highly recommend that!
