    The 5ct is really big and pretty much unbelievable. The 1ct is better cuz it looks more believeable

    I love chunky settings like this. What size would your center stone be? I agree that 5ct is way too much but it’s about whatever you like. As for which I prefer, I’d say the second one. They look very similar, just with smaller stones in the second.

    It’s definitely a matter of taste. If you like huge and flashy and would feel comfortabe with an 11mm (WOW) stone, go for it. Personally, I like the second option. I do think option one looks way too large. But that’s just my opinion. Some women like huge stones.

    The second one of the two, although I’d prob get a bigger size stone than the 1 carat, but maybe not as flashy as the 5? The 1 carat would look too close in size w/ your 5mm stone band. Another thought, what if the band is a plain band with a single solitaire, since your wedding band already has many stones anyway?

    #1. Way nicer profile, but maybe an 8 mm center. Also, it will come down to the wedding/diamond ring you have working well with the selected ering. You can’t have stones rubbing or touching metal or stones. You may find a solitaire easier to match without going custom. Joseph Schubach’s scroll solitaire is really nice. If you go custom, consider David Klass. His work is lovely and affordable. Whomever you choose to work with, I’d send them your 5-stone (insure it first) to make sure the rings play nice.
