Happy Friday, PSers. I am in the process of creating a RHR with a 6.4mm +/- center diamond and have narrowed it down to these options. I am leaning toward 121999 since I generally prefer thinner bands, but I'm not in love with the diamonds down the sides of the band. My jeweler is able to modify it to remove those diamonds (hence, option 3), but I am worried it might take away from the aesthetics of the setting...in which case, I think I'd rather leave the diamonds down the sides of the band (option 2) or just go with option 1. Would love to have your opinions. Thanks!

1) Stuller 122548 (3mm side stones, 3mm band and varying size halo melee)

2) Stuller 121999 (2.4mm side stones, diamonds on band, 1.8mm band and same size halo melee)

3) Stuller 121999 (2.4mm side stones, no diamonds on band, 1.8mm band and same size halo melee)
Same link as option 2, but would be modified as shown in these pics:

I like option 3, but I would ask your jeweler to order the ring with a plain shank rather than modifying after it is cast.

I voted for option 1 because I have a ring with a 1.8 or so mm shank, and I've decided it's too thin for my taste, so I'm doing a reset.

I vote #1 too, especially if you are right handed. I’m very dominantly right handed and I like having tougher rings on that hand. I’ll wear a 1.8 on my left band before I would on my right hand.

Thanks, all! I ultimately went with #1 since 3mm isn't exactly "wide" in terms of ring width LOL Plus I prefer the profile and I think it looks a bit less "engagement ring-ey" and more "right hand ring-ey". I appreciate everyone's input! Now I wait....
