So the ring saga continues… I give up. Just give me an effing ring pop and we’ll call it good.
I officially have some more time before getting engaged, due to Moissanite Co being out of my preshuuuussss Amora Moissanite and the fact that long distance sucks, so basically I’m still agonizing over rings. Fabulous.
I was just wondering if you Bees knew if an eternity band would sit more flush with a Tiffany style solitaire or a Cathedral? And if you had pictures!
Edit: Also, which setting lets in more light and sparkles? 🙂

I have a tiffany style, my wedding band has to sit under the low prong base or leave a gap. Stoned bands are taller so if you want it to fit close i’d think cathedral might work better. 🙂

I had a Tiffany style 6-prong round setting that I ended up changing to a cathedral setting because — guess what — nothing sat flush against it. Well, not nothing — the only thing that would sit flush against it was a plain band or a channel-set band, neither of which I wanted. So, if you want a pave or prong-set eternity band, I’d recommend a cathedral over a Tiffany style solitaire! Here’s my cathedral setting, with and without the band.

It’s basically this one, which I love…
Or this one… which is great from the top, but I don’t 100% love Cathedrals from the side…

I have a cathedral that looks very similar to yours. only difference that I can see is the width of the shank. Mine is 4mm wide.

Mine sat flush witth a straight eternity band but I found a slight curved one I liked more.

@Paiger8: I’m with you — I preferred the look of the Tiffany style setting over the cathedral (and still do), but the setting really takes a back seat the the stone, especially once you pair it with a band. I did find that when I was trying to pair a band with the Tiffany style setting I was limited to a band that was curved/notched, plain, or channel-set — everything else left a noticeable gap. But, if those styles are OK with you then you should be fine! You can’t really go wrong – both are very classic styles and I’m sure you’ll find something you like with either option!

I had a choice between a thicker, heavier, 18k cathedral setting (it came with my upgraded diamond) or to keep my really thin, 14k, tiffany style setting and I just had to stay with my original! I have a princess cut but after a little searching I fianlly found a band that sits flush.

I have a tiffany solitaire and (in 3 months) will have a channel set eternity band with it, the gap is practically imperceivable in real life, this picture is just very upclose. I didn’t try it on with a prong setting eternity band though (as somebody mentioned above), the ring below is literally the exact one I wanted, I went into the store and asked for exactly it, so I didn’t try it with anything else…the channel setting is very low profile too so even w/ a tiffany setting it doesn’t make it up to the diamond really, if that makes any sense…

Tiffany 6 prong with bezel 3/4 eternity. There is a teensy gap, but it works well for me.
