    Hi All! As some of you know..I got engaged with a beautiful 2.4ct. (H SI1) BGD Signature H&A diamond on a Tiffany knife-edge setting back in Dec. It is a very beautiful setting, and I loved it BUT I could not get used to the knife-edge feel. [​IMG] I sent my ring back to maybe soften the knife edge, but was scared it would still bother me. I felt so bad but my FI was completely supportive and wanted me to love it. After discussing setting options with Brian & Lesley, and being completely indecisive, I finally decided on the gorgeous GRACE setting! Both Brian & Lesley have been beyond amazing. A big Thank You to both of them!! I would also like to thank Lynn B for inspiring me and for creating Grace! [​IMG]

    I am completely in LOVE with this setting. The diamond POPS and is so comfortable, I sometimes look to see if it’s on my finger. Also, the 4-prongs in person looks so lovely and just showcases the stone. I can see the pavilion and I love that!

    Here are some pics.. My finger size is just under 4.5 (4.3/8), and Brian made the band about 2.1mm wide.

    I think it looks bigger in that setting, if it is even possible! Can you post some side by side hand shots of your old and new settings? I would love to see the comparison.

    Oh my gosh!!! Your original setting was beautiful, but this one just blows the other one out of the park! And that finger coverage is awesome! The proportions of everything look perfect, and it looks wonderful on your hand. Congrats on finding the perfect setting for your perfect diamond wsblue! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you Canada Ham, Lovely Hearts, Bliss, and Dreamer! [​IMG]

    In pictures I feel that the 6 prong looks bigger BUT in person I feel the 4 prong is bigger. My sister, my friend, and my FI all say it looks bigger now.
    Here is a side by side that I "tried" to compare..

    Gorgeous! I loved the old setting, but I love this one too! As much as I fall in love with different setting styles, I always love a classic RB solitaire.
