This is my original thread about the ring: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-mvs1-oec-from-mark-broumand.255916/

My engagement ring has been a little bit delayed because of SIP in California but we just got an email from Mark saying that it's ready to be shipped! I wanted to share the video so people are able to see the setting!

I know I'm being extremely picky but do the prongs seem a bit heavy from the top view? I can't tell how I feel about how "round" they are instead of wrapping around the stone a bit more. Also the curve area by the donut seems a bit thick too...but I wonder if it won't be obvious at all once I try it on on my finger? Any and all thoughts on this would be super helpful!

Don’t be too quick to decide about the prongs, it could be a trick of the photo perspective.
that's true...I have seen reflections from prongs that make them look very different depending on the light. Thanks for the perspective, balances out my crazy :lol:

It's lovely! And definitely wait until you see it in person before you decide there are elements that bother you.

I really like the setting. The prongs won’t look big in person. Please post pictures, handshots as soon as you receive it. Can’t wait!!!
Thanks Joelly! I plan to post tons of handshots hehe. I only wish I could post the video, the quality is much more clear!

Thank you Missy!! I'll definitely have to wear it for a bit and decide. I would also assume some of the thicker parts are better for sturdiness.

Agreed! I'm sure Mark will think I'm crazy if I try to describe what I want changed without seeing it in person :lol:

hi moonie, I love the way your ring turned out!! it's stunning and I think it suits your stone even better than the inspiration setting from ring concierge would have.

I was curious about the difference you mentioned though and couldn't really articulate it until I viewed them side by side. Different shapes aside, I think what you're seeing is that the prongs in your ring change the outline of the center stone (in a striking way imo!), while the prongs on the inspiration ring kind of blend into the outline of its center stone.

Thank you so much! Being the picky and detail-obsessed person that I am, I've been staring at the differences in the prongs for Ring Concierge's own engagement ring and some of the other ones she's recreated. Her personal ring is an OMC so I think the way her prongs wrap around her diamond really suits the cushiony-round shape. And I agree that it blends into her ring, it's a super interesting effect!

I looked at a few of the more "wrapped" prongs for OECs and I realized that it doesn't suit the round shape as much, it gives it a sort of pointy square looking effect (https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17863089532705273/). I do agree that the prongs on my own ER keeps the roundness of the OEC which I like!

Haha thanks for analyzing it with me, I've probably stared at the video of the ring at least a dozen times :D
