I really, really want to get my diamond from JA but cant decide on a setting. I feel as though their website doesn’t do the settings justice b/c I’ve seen beautiful pics of JA ERs but some seem to be discontinued.

1. I want a simple 14K white gold round brilliant solitaire, 1.3-1.49 carats ; I plan to get a diamond wedding band (not an anniverwary band) to sit flush with ER.

3. I’m a ring size 6 and over 40.

4. I am drawn to cathedral settings, but not extremely high.

5. Wondering about the Knife Edge Cathedral Engagement Ring SKU: 17612W14 b/c normally I’m not drawn to knife edge but maybe I would like this one?


I am concerned b/c some of the JA have a horizonal “band” around the diamond. I am wondering, although this might make the setting more sturdy, will it detract from the beauty of the diamond?

I would appreciate any photos of your JA solitaire! Bonus points if you show it in profile and also with a band!

Re: show me profile of your James Allen solitair /- wedding

I'm not on my computer or phone where I have photos of my rings stored so I'm giving you links to my posts for the rings. I have 2 solitaires from James Allen. This is a link to the upgraded ring that I just got a month ago and there are several photos showing the profile view and next to my wedding band. It's the Tapered Six Prong in platinum (also comes in 14 k white gold.)

This is the link to the original upgrade I bought from them last December. It is the Modern Tulip setting in 14k white gold and there's a photo shown of it next to the wedding bands.

Both of those settings sit quite low - much lower than I was used to, but I like them both. On my most recent upgrade (tapered 6 prong) I wanted a basket that was more open and easier to clean and see the side of the diamond - more so than the tulip setting. Even though they sit low, the wedding band still fits next to the ring without a gap.

thanks for sending those links!
Both rings are beautiful. Your photos are prettier than the JA site photos.
Your prongs look so nice on the 6 prong tapered. (on the JA website, they look much thicker).

We ordered the 14K White Gold Sleek Diamond Engagement Ring
SKU:17110W14 : https://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/solitaire/14k-white-gold-sleek-diamond-engagement-ring-item-49507
I am afraid I will not like round band around stone, though ( I think it is called a gallery?). My diamond is 1.35 carats so I am hoping that part of the setting won't be too thick & cover up the diamond. Now I'm regretting not getting the 6 prong you got- it doesn't obscure the diamond much at all. I may end up ordering that when all is said & done.
