My fiance said I can change my engagement band. He bought this one only as a temporary one so I could pick out the one I want. I''ve searched all over the internet and in jewelry stores for engagement band ideas but I keep finding the same sort of styles. Can anyone help me find an engagement band that will look good with my diamond? The diamond is Princess cut, 2.42 tcw, vs 2, and color G. Please help, I''m exhausted with looking.

A few questions for you:

1) What category are you leaning towards? Do you want a solitaire? A pave setting? 3 stone? etc.?
2) What metal do you want?
3) And, what "style" do you want? classic? vintage? contemporary? etc.

If you could narrow those down a bit, it would help greatly! I know it can be hard to do, but, it will make your search (and our help) a lot easier!


EDIT: I was so busy thinking of setting questions, I forgot to mention that your stone is GORGEOUS!!!!! Wow, blown away!

Oh thank you! I like the pave alot, it just seems every website I look at has the same designs. I guess I am in need of a breath of fresh air and was hoping there are some unique ring websites out there that are hiding from me. You know of any?

There''s always Leon Mege, Van Craeynest, and James Meyer. Are you wanting a custom piece?

Definitly need more feedback about what you like...I think it would be a gorgeous 3 stone ring. Although this
is not new, it is a very timeless look.

Thank you Soy, I LOVED Leon Merge''s website and I got a few ideas for there. We are getting it custom made by a jeweler in Cali, I just wanted to bring him ideas on what I like to make it perfect.

Sorry for the lack of description on what I like Ty. I''m so new at this, I joined PS yesterday to get some new ideas. Def love the 3 stone with the trillion side pieces, but I was hoping to do something like that for an anniversary present down the road. But it IS BEAUTIFUL. Thank you so much!

I thought you might want to see these pics...they are similar to the knox setting but with a square diamond (its an asscher not a princess) but will give
you an idea of how a square stone will look in a setting of that type. I think it is quite lovely. It is the ring in the middle...

I think a split shank would look great! What are you doing for a wedding band?

Oolala Laurenthepartier has beautiful pics of rings. Love it!

One of the first things I did after I got engaged was get a wedding band. Haha I was just so excited to get more jewelry. But now I regret getting it so fast bc I''m getting other ideas
But here is what it looks like...

Except we got it from fredmyers and it was double the price.
BUT we still have a couple months to return it if I find another one I like...so I''m definately considering that. And searching searching searching lol

The split engagement ring and the wedding band might fit together with a fairly large gap. If you are already unsure and still have some time to return I''d make sure you''ll be happy with the way they look together. I do like your band though!
