Hi everyone! This is a bit of an update post. My husband and I worked on a custom engagement ring and wedding band (previous thread) and after about a year and a half of wearing the engagement ring, it grew to bother me. The height was a major issue-I knew I was banging my stone around badly!

I posted here on PS about a potential re-set into a plain cathedral solitaire (previous thread lol). We took the ring in to pull the trigger and upon inspection... our jeweler identified a hairline crack in one of the upper facets of my stone!

I had a twinning wisp inclusion, which we knew about from the beginning, that apparently was so close to the surface that one of those whacks caused the stone to split through an extra half millimeter or so.

You can imagine what a kick in the stomach that was. And for all of you wondering the same thing as me... did the jeweler cause it? No... the crack was found on an intake inspection.

Well fast forward... our insurance company was amazing handling the claim process. I selected a 1.86 G SI1 XXX with no fluorescence. We also selected a new lower setting.

I couldn’t be happier!

Hard to get good stone photos but the above shows the new set.

AMAZING SET! (Do you need a spacer?)
Yes I should be wearing a spacer for safety! However I can allllmost get away without one. So sometimes I will. The bottom of the wedding band tapers big time so when I make a fist, both rings push together on the bottom and away at the top, if that makes sense.

But yes... looking for a thin rose gold spacer!

Beautiful pair of rings!. :love::clap:. IMO you should wear a spacer ring. you don't want the Wband girdles to make contact with your Ering ,b/c it'll chew up your Ering in a hurry. That's what happened to my wife's Ering.

Stunning set! Looks amazing on your lovely hand! Congratulations!

The photo taken from the side just reinforces the need for a spacer. Please protect the prongs on your gorgeous e-ring!

Your set is beautiful. You do need a spacer. You can't get away with it, trust me, I know. I have a similar set. Get a spacer asap. Damage happens so fast. It looks like it won't easily happen but your rings aren't static. As your hand moves throughout the day, they will rub.

And a shot with some perspective with the spacer on. Today I ordered a white gold spacer instead of the rose which I may like more.

My plan is to get a petit diamond and blue sapphire band as my first push present and eventually use that as a spacer.
