What kind of diamond ring should I create with the diamonds I have?

Since I am going out less, I would like to consolidate the diamonds I wear and get more use out of them when wearing them as one.

I have the following round diamonds:
1 carat (mother's solitaire)
.62 carat each, studs GIA cert
.50 bezel pendant GIA cert
.35 bezel pedant - may want to keep this one

Thinking a graduated 5 stone diamond band. Center 1 carat, 2 sides .62, and then would need another .50
All diamonds are F-G and brilliant.

Anyone have pictures of this type of 5 stone ring or other ideas?

What size finger do you have? That would be a whopping five stone. What about keeping the studs and pendant, and acquiring another .50ct to make a 3 stone with the 1ct and your current .50ct? That would make a lovely, classic set.

Just for reference, the ring in my avatar is .35, .56, .70, .54, .37, and completely covers my 5.75 finger.

To add - if you decide to go this route then I wouldn’t use the 0.5ct stones as the sides but the 0.35ct ones, and keep the 0.5ct as the pendant with the 0.62ct each studs. I think it looks more balanced to the eye.

If you do want a more blingy use for your stones (making it into a 5-stone) I would still not use 0.5 as the last stone but the 0.35, which keeps the sizes more balanced, as Garry said.

I'm planning to do a 3 stone in the new year with a .95ct center, and 2 x .61 sides. I love those proportions for a 3 stone - very substantial and classic.

Were I you, I'd then do a double drop - the .35 above the .5 - as a pendant. SO nice. The ring and the pendant would be substantial and classic, with a degree of oomph, without being *too* big.

This is exactly my suggestion. I like having side stones for a 3-stone ring where the sides are half the size of the center stone. And it will less $ to get another half carat than a .65ct. I am not a 5 stone fan. It is more of a band to me rather than an e-ring.

You should keep your studs as studs. And keep your pendant, as well. It’s so classic and “essential” lol to have diamond studs and a diamond solitaire pendant.
