by MoreSparkle » Apr 18, 2019 Hi folks! SO and I have picked a 2 carat super ideal H color for our ER. I'm told that it's a "true H" color. I'm really not sure about the setting though, and would love to get some input from you all on what you would do in our shoes. Ring size is 5 or 5.25. (1) 4 or 6 prongs? I tend to much prefer the look of 4, but heard that 6 prongs are safer for bigger stones. I'm also wondering if more prongs = better at hiding the color of the H? Is H warm enough of a color that we should actively try to hide the sides? (2) Halo or no halo? Is a halo good for hiding a warmer color, or does it emphasize it if the melee is a higher color? And is a halo on a 2 carat for a size 5 "too much" finger coverage? Families, social circles, etc. skew towards much smaller diamonds so we're a little worried about going too big. (3) Pave or no pave band? We prefer the look of pave, but do they involve a lot more upkeep than just a plain shank? How often does pave fall out? We're going with platinum, if that matters. (4) Flush vs. not-flush wedding band? How important is it to you guys that the band sit flush/how much did that affect your setting design? We're both diamond and jewelry novices, so please share your wisdom!
