So dont get me wrong, i love my ring but i cant help but get that feeling that i wish i’d made it clear when looking at rings i wanted a solitaire and halo….as a lot of UK bees no the prices of diamonds over here are on the higher side BUT i have a .25 pear solitaire diamond ring of my grandmothers and it got me to thinking….should i get a new setting made and insted of the four larger diamonds in the center of my ring…..replace it with the .25 pear solitaire? Does anyone know how much a new setting usually costs? Thinking exactly the same setting i have now but just with the solitaire placed in the middle ….then with the double halo ect ect as it already is set…heres what my ring looks like now…

jawwdan1991: No, your ring is beautiful and pretty unique for the UK I would say. Leave it how it is.

jawwdan1991: it may be possible to have the cluster diamonds removed, and have the solitaire diamond set in your exsisting ring. Then, maybe you could use the diamonds from the cluster to have a wedding band made? That way you would still have all the diamonds from the ring he proposed with plus your grandma’s diamond. You may even be able to use the gold from your grandma’s solitaire melted down to make the wedding band. Just a thought!

I remember you being a bit worried about it when your first got engaged, but had an ‘i dont care, i love it’ attitude. Whats happened to make you worry now? or are you just a bit bored with it already? Personally I think its pretty unique and if you’re sticking with that style you should leave it as it is.

It’s very pretty. It depends on what you want, though. I, personally, would prefer one bigger diamond to four smaller diamonds. It will look pretty either way you go, so just do what makes you the happiest!

You could *always* have a 2nd ering. Some of us have multiple sets [we’re nuts..] but it happens 🙂

I think it’s amazing and wouldn’t change a thing! But you have to be happy with it, not me 🙂 if you want to hangs it, I lie MrsSparklebee13’s suggestion! Would your Fiance be ok changing it?

I adore your ring as-is. So personally I would probably leave it as it is and make a pendant out of your grandmothers ring (you could add a halo for extra being if you wanted, and it could make a stunning piece to wear on your wedding day).
Or leave her ring as-is and have a second set (you could get a plain band to match); I have a very blingy cluster and diamond band, and then a moissanite solitaire in palladium which I plan to get a palladium band to wear with.

jawwdan1991: i absolutely love your ring… i think you should leave it. It’s gorgeous and sparkly.
also, i think that if you redo the whole ring with a .25 center stone, it will make the ring considerably smaller than it is now. So, just something else to think about if you like the size and finger coverage.

That ring is gorgeous!
But it’s you who will wear it, noone else. You should listen to your heart.

jawwdan1991: leave your ring as it is. I think it’s beautiful. Just wear your solitaire of your Grandma or get a cheap new one. Then you can change then depending on your mood.

It seems to me that the central pear cluster takes up more real estate than a .25ct pear would. Then you’d have empty space. I’d leave the ring as is and do something else with the diamond.
