Re: BA ring W/3 row is it too much go with simpler setting..

If you want the center diamond to look HUGE - the thinner the shank the bigger the center will look.

If you want a "BLINGY" overall effect then the triple diamond shank will do the trick.

here is a terrible paint job I tried to show what I meant:

Re: Colored stone in old engagement ring solitaire setting

Try John Rhoads, He has a rhodolite garnet 8mm for $81 and a round chryso (maybe too large? 8.5mm - I asked him about the color on this one, he says is much more yellow than his picture)

Face up size will look identical almost (you are paying more/ carat weight on the second) seeing in person will help you figure out which one you like the best.
