The extra finger coverage of the one with the bigger donut is nice, that would be what I would pick but go with your gut.

@michellelynn9175 makes sense to me. Sometimes you “just know”. Good thing to get both wax so you could compare, that was smart.

It was a suggestion from @CHRISTY-DANIELLE (thank you!!!) and I’m so glad I did, because if I had gone with what I THOUGHT I wanted, I would’ve ended up with option 2. I just hope I don’t lose all the detail of the basket with option 3. I know the wax mold isn’t accurate but it’s very filled in and runs together.

I'm so glad you got the molds!! Really helps doesnt it? I promise you my regret on my e-ring is that the donut is small and makes cleaning difficult. I really love the bigger donut option of the two molds, it looks great on your finger. So excited for you :appl:
Edited to add: don't judge the gallery in the mold. The actual gallery will be hand done and much more refined. (DK told me the gallery part is done by hand).

Thank you for your help! I really am floored that I like option 3 because when I got the drawing, I was quite underwhelmed. I emailed David back to make a few slight modifications. Sizing it up to 7.75, making sure the airline didn’t change from CAD 2 to CAD 3, he reassured me the filigree detail would translate and not be a muddled mess, and I explained where I wanted the milgrain. Oh, and I had him thicken the band to 2.5 or so. Told him to use his judgement so I’m waiting for my fourth and hopefully final CAD!
