The ring is gorgeous! However, since the donut is too low for you, I think going the Vatche route or the local jeweler (I'd want to see actual pictures or a model of this so-called "identical" setting first.) sounds like the best resolution.

I don't blame you for going with an ideal stone and to work hard to get the setting right rather than get the setting you like with a non-ideal and overpriced stone.

My fiancé proposed!

Here is the ring.

The height of the diamond and the prongs are fine. We want to get the band remade though. It’s too rounded and not knifey enough. I also want more height to the shank. It looks too low and kind of off.

It will also be hard to pair with wedding band because the height differences. The Tiffany setting has more height so it’s more balanced with the wedding band.

Here is my ring with a 3mm wedding band

Here is a ring I tried on at Tiffany with a 3mm wedding band as well. It just looks more balanced to me ECD8A173-3CEA-4D55-B352-DA80C5396785.jpeg

It’s so beautiful. Hopefully you get the band the way you imagine.

Do you live in Alberta per chance? I grew up in Edmonton and your picture in your avatar looks like it’s overlooking the river.

It is not just the prongs that need to be protected. The diamonds from the wedding band can saw into the shank of the ering too. The purpose of the spacer is to protect the entire ring and the spacer will endure the damage. Diamonds with exposed girdles will eat into any metal that it is in constant contact with. Others here have had the same dilemma and the only real fix is either a spacer or a different kind of wedding band altogether.

Yes— my friend had a Tiffany solitaire and experience this same thing. She had to have it totally remade and now wears a spacer or just wears it alone.

Here’s a shot of the ring from my proposal. I’ll keep you guys updated on the ring once it’s remade! Thanks for all your help and input!

Yes I am in Edmonton Alberta :)

@mtran89, I was searching for wf knife-edge pics and came across your post, did you ever send your wf knife-edge back to get the band remade?

The ring is being completely remade!

I decided to get both my eternity band and e-ring designed together. Liza suggested I do it this way, so they can make sure that they will sit together perfectly and the prongs won’t touch. I also want to minimize the gap as well.

I decided on a 3mm shared prong open basket style for the eternity band. It sits about 2.5-3mm high, so the donut will need to be around this height to give enough clearance for the head of the e-ring.

I’m currently waiting on the CAD drawings, they should be complete tomorrow I think! I’m super excited to see what they have designed for me!

I’m excited to see the final result! The Tiffany six prong setting will never go out of style.

I’m trying to decide between a pretty large G and F coloured diamond. Did you see any tint in your G diamond? Even from the side view?

I just made a new thread about the concern with the color of my diamond :)

Hope it all works out. Can’t wait to see the set!

@mtran89, can't wait to see your new set, please post pics!! :)I am also worried about finding a band that would sit at the same height as the ER and pondering having them make the band also so they fit. I am looking at the 7 stone Annette or the 9 stone Kimberly (1.26 ct 14 pointers). I like the profile of the Kimberly more, but I think this would have a higher height than the WF knife edge and I would probably need to customize and use seven 8 pointers. Which one are you looking at that's the shared prong open basket? Is that similar to the Tiffany embrace 0.57ct band?

WF doesn’t make a shared prong open basket eternity so I had to have it custom made. It’s similar to the Tiffany Embrace 3mm 1.64 tcw.

I think 8 pointers would still have too much height and the band would still hit the prongs on the WF Knife Edge as the head on it sits really low. The donut on the WF Knife Edge is only 1mm high. So your band would need to be only 1mm high which I don’t think is possible. That’s why I had to ask them to increase the band height and the donut to match the height of my eternity band.
