Number 2 for her. Wider band for you (6mm).
Honestly, I'm kind of regretting not buying her the one with the slightly bigger (0.065ct) stones now. We could've just opted for 9 x 0.065ct which will end up about the same price anyway. Not sure why we didn't think of that. That would've put her ring at 2.5mm wide which I think would've been perfect. Does the current ring have any advantage over the bigger one?
Sure thing, here's a pic of the set:
Mine's a 5mm satin finish bevel-edged ring
Yeah. The one we got is custom made by a local jeweler. The only difference between this and the Tiffany #3 in my earlier post, is that this one is 0.55cttw (vs 0.56cttw) and has more stones (11 vs. 7 in the Tiffany IIRC) which makes each stone in the Tiffany a bit bigger (probably 0.065ct ones).I much prefer ring nr 3 for her; the 0.56 cttw
This ring is a shared prong though. But yeah, that's what I told her but you know how it is when a girl has the mindset of "bigger stones, the better". I told her that since this is a wedding ring, it should build coherence with the e-ring.beautiful. i would actually recommend sticking to a smaller pave diamond band because itll make the center stone on her engagement ring pop and look bigger.
I asked but unfortunately they don't allow returns, since all the rings sold by the local jeweler are custom made. At this point, I'm more of just gathering different opinions and trying to convince my SO, lol. From the looks of it, more people (here and in other forums) say that it is well-balanced.Personally I don’t think so, but if you’re not happy with it can you switch it?
Apologies I didn’t realise you had already purchased her ring, my husband ‘convinced’ me of a wedding ring (not the one I wanted and frankly I didn’t wear it all the time because I didn’t love it) and bought me the one I really wanted as a 1st anniversary gift- maybe that would be a nice idea?
I think it looks beautiful and proportionate. I agree with you that if two rings are being worn together it's good to have then complement each other, which these do.
Also... what fraction of difference is there between 0.005 and 0.065 diamonds...? It can be easy to fixate on these things and lose perspective (believe me, we all know that...)
Thanks for the comment.
Exactly my thoughts. A 0.005ct stone is around 2.35mm in diameter. A 0.065ct is 2.5mm. So that's roughly 6.4% bigger.
