its 2:14am here in the midwest and I cant sleep either..

The first one I do not like how high the diamond sits.

The second one the head area is a bit blocky but I like it better than the first one.

For me personally the first one is too high the head is beautiful but I would want it lower.

Ditto. I like the basket style of the first, but it''s too elongated. The second is boxy, but at least it''s more proportional.

It''s 3:41 in Florida. I''m up because I drank too much caffiene and my son has decided now is as good a time as any to play with his toy cars.

I think it''s elegant and classic. She can always get a super blingy wedding band. The Legato would be my choice hands down.

You did the right thing, the diamond is what counts.


Personally I''d rather have an elegant solitare I could pair with any band I wanted over the other one with the diamonds, because that one might limit my wedding band options.

I think I like this one best of the settings that have been posted on this thread. I personally don''t see any downsides to platinum except that it''s more expensive to buy, size, and repair with current metal prices, and over time it develops a patina and isn''t shiny like gold. I perfer the less shiny look myself, but some people don''t.

Thankyou Dee for the props!

Honestly evaldez, I cannot speak highly enough of the legato - personally I love a simple solitaire for an ering, as its so versatile, easy wearing and as Dee mentioned classic. Than she can get blingy bands, or mix and match, yanno?
I don't find the legato plain due to the original design in the wires in the head - it adds something special. Plus the basket is just the right height imho, not too high or low.
I get compliments on it all the time from strangers.

Of course I'm biased, but out of the ones you've linked the legato would be my pick.



If you can't sleep, do a search on WG vs Plat - there is hours of reading! In the end though, it just depends on what your girl likes and your budget - has she expressed interest in plat?

http://www.whiteflash.com/Engagement-Rings/Styles/Diamond-Settings/-Sleek-Line-Pave--Diamond-Engagement-Ring_1184.htm# if i get this setting my budget will only let me get it in white gold...does anyone have any wisdom to share with me or can talk me out on getting wg ?.. i would love platnium but my budget speaks loader
I personally am not a fan of platinum. My original e-ring was platinum and it got all scratched up..DROVE ME NUTS and also heavy. I got my new e-ring in white gold and love it. I''ve had the new setting for 4+yrs now and not one scratch and looks like it''s brand new. I also love the fact that I saved money getting white gold and put that towards the setting I really wanted..instead of having to settle for something less lovely because of the platinum prices. I''m sure I''m in the minority (about disliking platinum)

Anytime hun your ring is a STUNNER :)


evaldez You mentioned in a previous post that your GF has really sensitive skin and for that reason alone I would go plat not everyone can wear white gold do you know if she can wear white gold?

The Sleek Line Pave is by far my favorite setting in this thread.

I like the Sleek Line Pave a lot! Personally I prefer the solitaire (Legato Sleek Line), but you seem to be looking for a pave/diamond setting rather than a solitaire based on your other choices.

It''s hard to say whether WG or plat would be better for your GF''s skin. I don''t think either one is known to make eczema worse, but there''s always the chance that she''s allergic to one, and I don''t think platinum is necessarily less allergenic than WG (could be wrong though). I''d go with the WG if platinum isn''t budgetable. Here''s how I see the plat vs. WG debate:

Platinum
Pros: highly sought after; status symbol; heavy/durable
Cons: develops a patina, though this is easily buffed out; expensive

WG
Pros: less expensive and shinier than platinum
Cons: may have to be replated, but this is inexpensive (how often depends on her body chemistry and is unpredictable)

If your gf has eczema, you might want to find out if she can wear white gold. White gold is a great choice because it is less expensive, but if it irritates her skin, it won't work. Of course, it depends on the alloys used. Does she wear white gold jewelry now with no problems? I know my mom can't wear 14K gold, it has to be 18K because the 14k irritates her skin. Just a thought.

Sorry I didn't vote on a setting. I like several of them and can't pick one!

I have eczema on my hands, too. It''s not caused by a metal allergy, and I can wear white gold just fine.

I am pretty sure WF can make/uses a Ni-free gold alloy.
