    I prefer solitaires so the stone is most important to me

    I voted stone, but only because at the Tim I got engaged,  I really wanted a 1ct blue diamond bc I loved the color and couldn’t find another stone like it. If I had the same decision to make today, I would have gone with a london blue topaz in a great setting and upgraded later. I’m currently getting my blue diamond reset, so there you go, lol!

    lavenderstone:  Absolutely the setting without a doubt! !!!! I drool over my setting! Even when other compliment my ring, they always say how much they love the setting.

    The diamond.

    My e ring is a solitaire with a narrow shank and my wedding band is plain and narrow. My wedding set is all about the diamond.

    I wanted a beautiful diamond to begin with because I would never change that even if I upgrade/reset.

    The setting and stone were equally important to me, but luckily I strongly prefer plain (aka affordable) solitaires…so the stone is the splurge!

    To me, the setting. I like the whole ring to be pretty/detailed as opposed to a plain band. I think solitaires are elegant and beautiful and I appreciate all kinds of stones, but on myself, I prefer a more unique setting and overall ring as opposed to a really nice stone to focus on.
