Ok so me and my boyfriend have wanted to get married for a while now..ive been trying to find an engagement ring setting that i like. I know that i want a solitaire setting and have white gold. He has the diamond and it is round cut. What kind of setting would you suggest? What setting is your engagement/wedding ring?

  • That round diamond would be beautiful with a 6-prong setting.

  • look for quality of the diamond over the size. that 1 1/2 carat might seem more impressive than the 1 carat, but if the cut, color, and clarity of the 1 ct is superior, it will be a better diamond and it will be more beautiful and more valuable later on.

  • i wanted a princess cut cause i think of myself as one but they have a setting called the tulip that is pretty but it means a lot of different things to jewlers. why aren't they all on the same page. also diamonds don't go up in price after bought like teri4lance said they go down and really it's a waste of money. i thought of getting a diamond from those companies that make real diamonds. although they are still pricey as well. i hope your bf got a conflict free diamond. meaning no women children or men were killed for digging them or enslaved to dig the diamond

  • Definitely browse through jewelry stores to see the options for your stone.

    I don't have a diamond ring - just a special wedding band - so I can't help you much.

  • lol diamonds don't depriciate. you might pay too much, but that's your fault. over the long term, you are far better off investing in a smaller diamond that is superior than a big one that is inferior.
    in other words - you may be able to get a 1.5 carat for the same price as a 1, but if the 1 carat is of superior quality - it's a better purchase. plus it will be prettier.
