So I have the pic''s of the diamond from WF! Let me know what you think. The first pic is showing the center stone with two 0.41 sides, I had originally wanted 0.50 sides, but am trying to see if I can tell a difference or not. Problem is I know when I looked at a 3 stone ring with 0.50 sides I liked it, I just have never seen one with 0.41 to see if the size difference would make a difference to me or not...let me know what you think of the size of the sides. They will be set in a traditional 3-stone round setting.

So I do not have the spec''s or any other pic''s of the side diamonds yet b/c I''m just trying to figure out if I can do that size. The center stone according to WF is definitely eye clean.

Wow!! That is going to be a beautiful ring!! I love the center and the sides, and the proportions are very nice. I would keep the sides as they are instead of going up to .50s. The center stone pops and you can save some money instead of jumping up to the .50 price jump.

Looks GREAT!! I like the proportions of the 3 stones together. I would stick the .41''s as well.

Thanks everyone for the input! So here is the link to the two side diamonds, given the price what are your thoughts on these? They didn't fair well on the HCA, but was wondering given they are side diamonds does it matter as much?

Well, it would to me... In really looking at them now, I notice a couple things.

1. There is a .07 mm difference between the two. I can see it in the pic, don't know if it would really show in real life. In stones under 1 carat, especially the smaller sizes, a small difference will show more. Ask WF about it.

2. The .412 is pretty deep, and appears a bit dark. I would want to know if it appears dark in real life. I'd want the sides to match in performance to each other, or I think it could be noticeable/bug you. And that's also the reason I'd want them to perform well period. You have a stunner in the middle, you want the sides to keep up, or I think it might be noticeable.
