Sooo my future husband proposed in December 2009 and I posted pics of the ring here:

[URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/newly-engaged-with-pics-of-the-ring-here.143030/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/newly-engaged-with-pics-of-the-ring-here.143030/[/URL]

Don't get me wrong, I love my diamond and my ring, but I just didn't love how "fat" the band was. So I finally got the nerve to have the band thinned out. The original ring was almost 4mm and now its just under 3mm. I like the ring soooo much better now and my fiance was perfectly ok with my decision. Before the adjustment, the diamond sort of blended into the band and now it really stands out. Overall, it doesn't look that much different, but I am very happy with the slight change.

So please let me know what you think, and I won't be offended if you liked it better before. I know some people prefer the wider band.

Ring with her makeover: :wink2:

I really liked your first one - I looked at the link first. Then I saw the "new" pics and I liked it even more! I personally just like thinner bands. Your diamond looks a lot bigger than a .79! :love: :love:

Wow! What a beautiful change. I definitely liked it before but it's perfect now! I love that you were able to alter the original rather than getting an entirely different setting.

Thank you ladies for all of your kind words! I am very happy with my decision :)

Lauren - You're right, just over 1mm can sure make a difference when you're dealing with jewelry. At first, I wondered if the change would even be noticeable but the ring really does have a different look now.

Haha at Kelpie - the lipo did give her a little boost :wink2:

iugurl - My finger is a size 4 so it definitely helps to make the diamond look a little bigger. Definitely not a bad thing :D

Wow- it looks stunning! I like thinner bands as I have a thing for the more "delicate" look for an e-ring (although I love the chunky look for other jewelry) and it also makes the stone look bigger! :appl:
