I 'm hoping someone bought this ring before and can post some pictures of theirs. The picture on WF is not enough for me to make a decision but I really love this ring right now. It's got the center stone flush look into the ring and it's got the 2 small stones on the side in place perfectly with the prongs not sticking up like the standard 3 stone ring. I don't like rings where the stone is raise high up and away from the ring.

Also, I search and search and saw the endless discussion on white gold vs platinum, should i go for platinum ? :)


UPDATE: 01/07/2007: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/wf-trois-brillent-3-stone-ring.55855/ Pictures posted!! I went with Platinum.

I think the ring looks lovely! I think that is a fairly new setting, so there may not be any of that one posted yet.

As far as white gold vs. platinum goes, it was hard for me to decide. But after talking with my jeweler, I decided that I''d either go with 18k white gold or 90/10 platinum, and most vendors are using 95 platinum, which is a little softer and scratches more than the other. So my end result was to go with the 18k wg since Mark Morrell is one of the few using the 90/10 plat/iridium. But there are pros and cons to everything.

My girlfriend''s finger size is a 5 and I was planning to get a 1.04 carat stone from Whiteflash.

I emailed Tracy at WF asking for additional pictures then the 2 that''s posted on their website which I think is really not enough to show me what the ring looks like. I love how the JamesAllen website has the 3D View and the Hands View. I wish WF or all diamond online vendors would have something like that or as many photos as possible from different angles.

Additional photos I just received from Tracy at WF. I thought I should share it for it everyone to see.



Stock photos on WF site.

I was getting opinion on it and while it absolutely looks gorgeous,

I'm concern the 2 side stones are quite big where it won't make my center stone stand out. I'm getting a 1.04 carat center stone and the sides are 0.5c each. Would it make sense to ask for a smaller side stone? I just emailed WF asking what size is that center stone in these pictures.

are you sure the sides are .5 each? i haven't looked at the specs. of that setting. the sides on mine are .25 each and are just right for my 7mm stone.

eta:
i just looked at the link... the tcw is .5, so the sides are .25 each. perfect!

You have the Trois Brillent ?? That's how I interpreted it from the description but I can see its possible I may be wrong. I will shoot another question to them.

I'm going to sneak in another question to this thread,

http://www.whiteflash.com/diamonds/Matching_Compare.aspx?oldID=55893&newID=56039
These are the two center stones I have it narrowed down to. Which one do you guys think is better? The price is neglible as it's about $80 difference with the discount from pricescope. Unless someone thinks I should maybe downgrade to a G color for about $800 cheaper and then maybe get Platinum for the ring.

I was thinking of getting this ring but they didn''t provide me with additional photos. They said if they set the ring and you don''t like it you can return it. The diamonds are .25 each on the side. Hope that helps

no, i have the w-prong http://www.whiteflash.com/Engagement-Rings/Styles/3Stone/3-Stone--W-Prong--by-WF_944.htm it also has .5tcw (total carat weight) sides, so each of the sides are .25

both diamonds you picked are perfection but i would vote for going with a ''g''. you will never ever notice the color difference and you can put the $$$ you save into a plat setting, or bigger stone.
i have a g/si stone and LOOOOOOVE it!

After looking at seemingly countless settings, this is the setting I am going with. Also setting a WF stone which is 1.01. Sides total .50 TCW. Still undecided as to Plat or WG.
