I’ve always wanted a cluster ring. I think they can be so pretty.

I’ve found two I may be interested but they are so different that I don’t know which to pick.

The yellow gold ring on the left has 7 OEC cut diamonds. The total carat weight is about 1/3 of a carat.

I know the OEC cut is well-liked and they can be known for their sparkle.

The white gold cluster ring on the right is about .50ctw, so more finger coverage. And I have a size 5 finger.

Not sure of the cut of the stones on this one although it looks to be newer than the OEC, which may be antique..?

Please give me your opinions:twirl: D1211BB6-C0C7-4671-90F5-C1ED4F754A30.jpeg D1211BB6-C0C7-4671-90F5-C1ED4F754A30.jpeg

I can’t see the faceting in the pics of the right one. Can they take a better close up straight on of the ring? A side profile pic would be nice, too.

Btw I just wanted to say that there is nothing wrong with these two clusters, I would pick the OEC one myself. However it's always fun to shop and sometimes you think you looked everywhere wnd then discover a new possibility :D

Do you mind me asking what your budget for a cluster ring is?
Preferred metal, carat weight? Are you aiming for old European cut?

I'd be happy to look for you.
Never tried on a cluster ring so I don’t know how I’ll truly like one until I get it. So for my first one, my budget is $2,000.

1 carat or less for the carat weight. I mostly am concerned with the stones being sparkly. OEC, yes. OMC would be even better. :mrgreen2:

This one is slightly over budget but the center is a sizable OEC and would probably be easy to resize since you are going down less than a whole size:

Don’t know if you are up for a project but I have a diamond cluster stickpin I planned to convert and haven’t done anything with it. My contact info is on LT if you want more info. And, as long as you aren’t in a rush as we are distancing at our second home and the pin is at the primary home).

Saw this on Etsy while I was looking for something else and thought of this thread.

Re Winnietucker's ring she posted, I have bought from them before and was very happy. Their pictures leave a lot to be desired

No worries. Found this one on etsy that is close to your size and well within budget.

The YG ring is beautiful, but it looks a little bit like a blob to me. The white gold ring looks like a flower; the stones are placed in a way that is more symmetrical. I have a vintage cluster ring, and I love it, but the symmetry of the diamonds is slightly off, and it bothers me. I really like the Etsy ring, above.
