With the same budget, I would have the same ring, lol.  DH and I designed it together and I still really like it.

@freshflowers:  I’ll play! I love this three stone asscher. Same budget as mine (~$2000).

I would just change my setting but keep the stone. The first picture is what I asked the jeweler for. The second picture is what I got.

@wrkbrk:  looks like it to me too, otherwise the stone would be able to slide out right?

Love mine.  The only thing I might change is the center stone, it’s an Iolite (which I love and picked out), but three months after I got my e-ring the company that made my ring started offering London Blue Topaz as an option.  Still I love the one I have, so no real regrets (my RHR is going to have a London Blue Topaz).

The stone is a darker purple in real life (and when it’s cleaned!).

This is what might have been:

@canarydiamond:  

Correct. That is a temporary setting. The jeweler I bought my diamond from said he could set it that way. Then, I was told he changed his mind but found another jeweler who could. When I got the ring, it looked nothing like what I was told.

Same Money = Same Ring

Mr TTR & I spent 6 Weeks looking for my Ring… I am very very happy with it.

Infact if the budget was increased, I doubt I’d exchange it for another (wouldn’t want to go any bigger for example) … altho I might consider improving the Quality of my “Feature Stone”

I am a girl who is all about QUALITY over Qunatity.

@shortie1848:  Your first picture shows what they call a “ring holder”  It is meant to show how a stone would look on your hand but it is not a permanent setting.  That’s why your jeweler could not give you the exact same setting.  It would not secure the ring.

Edit to add:  Jcent beat me to it.  Wink

Like TTR said same money for me would equal same ring.  I love my ring and only want to update the center stone since my asha is not a forever stone.  But I knew the amora gem was coming out when we got it and it’s just a matter of time before it is ready in my cut and carat size.
