by AliceC » Sep 14, 2017 Hello! My partner and I have just purchased a 1.6 carat diamond and I would love some help in determining how thick the pave band should be. We are totally clueless on the size of melees and band thickness so any information or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! I have attached some images of the setting we had in mind in terms of proportion. We would love something with delicate claw prongs and a dainty band, set in platinum. We are custom designing the ring with BGD, it would be really great if we could advise their design team on the thickness of the band. We've gone into bricks and mortar stores but it hasn't been easy finding the right thickness with a similar carat size. Thank you very much!
