Same three diamonds went from custom-modified ‘Butterflies’ (in my avatar) to the sleek & sexy Sholdt 3-stone semi-bezel in platinum. The sides seem larger/have more presence in this setting than they did in the previous one, but I’m just elated to no longer catch prongs on my clothes & hair … this is such a comfortable wearable ring, I absolutely love it! ♥️

Both versions are gorgeous, but oh these sleek semi bezels are wonderful!
I’m sorry if this is intrusive - but coming from one who has had/will have interest in the same setting you had- can you elaborate if it was snagging vs lint catching? If snagging- was it an option to have the vendor address it?
I get it if there were more reasons to wanting the switch than just this, but am truly curious.

Thank you @LLJsmom @hathalove & @OboeGal & beautiful 3-stone @HS4S_2

:wavey: It’s not intrusive at all. This was not an issue with workmanship or ‘bad’ prongs; I’m certain that if I’d have asked, WF would have done or suggested something to make the design/prongs a little less snaggy for my lifestyle somehow. I just manage to snag prongs on everything - my hair, hand towel threads and on other things all the time because I rarely take my rings off except to clean them (not just the previous setting) … and it just bugs the crap out of me. For that reason, prongs are really just not an ideal option for me. Also, while I loved the look & sparkle of the side pave on the shoulders, on occasion, my neighbor-fingers would slightly rub against it, and that bugged me … but again, that’s a “me” thing. WF made the ring exactly to my specifications, and the ACA melee was beautiful & pave very well done/secure. I’m really just more of a bezel/semi-bezel gal at heart, and that’s the lane I need to stay in.

And Sholdt just does semi-bezels & this design so damn well … the ring is like liquid-bling on my finger - smooth, sleek, sparkly, super comfortable and not snaggy at all. I’m also tickled that I can view the sides of the diamonds as well; I really missed that about my previous Sholdt ER.

Just received this yesterday, so excited! Three-stone ring with WF ACA G/VS1 diamonds, in a half-bezel setting made by David Klass. Center is 1.17ct, sides are .302ct and .304ct. Size 7.25.

Despite being on PS since forever, I still can't fully wrap my brain around the cut parameter nuances. Y'all blow my mind! I wanted this to be easy, so I went with WF ACAs. And while I don't see myself upgrading anything on this, I have learned you just never know. Sometimes a gal gets itchy for a change. I love having their policies to draw upon should I ever want to. 100% the right decision.

I have worked with DK before and that was easy as always. Very efficient and while there has never been any fluff, he is pleasant and just delivers above and beyond in all ways possible (changes, models, shipping, pricing, timing, quality). I love my new ring, it's a decade-long dream come true!

Absolutely gorgeous! Can't say I'm not biased - as I have a 3-stone semi bezel with similar proportions AND we wear a similar ring size :lol:

Enjoy it! It is such an easy-to-wear style.

Thank you @MissGotRocks and @Cerulean!

Cerulean, I followed your journey with interest and love the outcome! Hearing your thoughts on the difference between full bezels vs. half bezels was really helpful, especially since you'd had the same diamonds in both. Thank you for sharing it!
