Aww thank you! Im excited

I was just reading about her ring! Honestly when I saw her ring - I knew I wanted to do a reset to three stone. And since we had so many wedding plans canceled this year - figured might be nice to just go a totally different avenue. 3 rings symbolize past / present / future and I love that. Esp with my husbands center stone between family stones.

Thank you for pulling the bachelor ring too! I do see with a real ring how sometimes the diamonds are actually really lost - however, my set would be closer to Megans. That said the new band DID change the look of her ring.

okay okay these are very good perspectives. On instagram the pave is unreal but I wonder if thats camera tricks too.. hmmm

Hey just to chime in with another vote for plain band. I reset my diamond into a double halo with a split shank thinking I wanted all the bling and I was never happy with it. It was just too busy.
This year I got an oval set in a halo and went with a plain band and a .1 band. It’s not exactly what you are after but might help visualise.

I really think having pave will distract from your stunning engagement ring but as others have said, you need to ensure the set makes your heart sing!

Not sure if this helps or confuses you further but here is a pic of my .1 band with the double halo pave band. I know you won’t have a halo but you can see that the differing diamond sizes clash. I think a plain band will be timeless, you will still have plenty of bling with your three beautiful stones and the band. Also tbh you probably won’t see much of the pave band anyway as the three stones will more of less cover your finger.

hope this Helps.

Your welcome can’t wait to see what you decide and how it turns out. I will be watching closely as I could potentially do the same with my oval. It’s in a halo right now but I have two .4 rounds in another ring! I also have a .8 round I could use with the .4’s.

The two rounds are from my original engagement ring which was a three stone (three .4) and after getting two other rings (the double halo and oval halo) neither of which I am in love with I am now realising that I miss the finger coverage across my finger. The other rings are bigger lengthwise but after wearing a three stone for almost 20 years they somehow still feel smaller to me than my three stone. I sometimes think I’m a bit crazy ha ha. Anyway I’ve spent all my bling budget for the moment so will enjoys my oval halo for a change for a while but I defo see myself having everything reset into a three stone eventually! Beat of luck with yours!

That would be a statement ring! My ratio is 1x3x1 but i do love the ones that are 1x2x1 - they almost appear larger IMO than when the ratio is higher.

So after - one million hours - of looking online - I agree the simplistic version is the best. Im really lucky to have a husband with strong opinions (sometimes ;-) haha) - side note, he's European - and showed me a few designers in Europe as well, and like everyone here said, less really is more. While I might love the sparkle now because its new and Im shopping - I might hate it come 6 months from now. I can always add another band to my stack when Im feeling like I want extra bling too

Sending off the final approval and now I wait haha. I will reach back out as soon as I have an update on anything!

Also I really want to thank everyone on this thread. This year has been really hard deciding anything about our wedding(s) and its nice to know I can ask for advice on the rings :)

@chicago123 well done on making the decision. And, for whatever it is worth, i think you have made the right decision on what is a timeless design.

I can’t wait to see the final result of this set.

once again, well done on making that decision.

It's here! Before showing pics - I just wanted to say thank you - EVERYONE - for helping. It meant so much to bounce ideas off of my ring and gather everyone's input from a non sales person perspective. Everyone here has STUNNING rings and really great ideas when it comes to what would look nice and in sync.

Also - forewarning - please be nice because I love it :).

Lastly - I do want to say I did a last minute switch on the band - Im really happy I did!! So I know it wasnt the popular opinion in the end - but Im really in love :). Will post pics below now!

Also - last thing - I know the prongs are pretty prominent on the stone and I will likely get them sharpened a little into a claw form but will wait a little because I jsut want to wear it!
