Y’all my husband is going to kill me . I upgraded and got this beautiful oval ring last year but... I think I picked the wrong setting (for me). I feel like I need a little more umph/pizazz. Photos below of what I have currently (plain band with oval and two pears is my current ring) and what I am considering switching to. Looking for any thoughts/input since I am nervous to pull the trigger. 82D8C9C1-6A3E-49BB-BE92-4C4083CFA8CE.jpeg

I wholeheartedly recommend you KEEP what you have. First off, keep the hubby happy! But really, I love the 3 stone. I honestly think the halo is overdone and I know many who have switched regret or have reset. I had a 3-stone awhile back, changed to halo, didn’t like it, and wish I still had a 3-stone... but, after the diamond upgrades and the mounting changes, I now have a solitaire lol! If I went to something other than solitaire it would be 3 stone. I think the one you are considering is just too much going on and is a taste preference for now. I think you will change you mind over time. I have a ton of jewelry of a certain vintage style and now I’ve changed in taste and I’m regretting the purchase of all of it! I think it’s best to stay with something more classic which is what your setting is. Also, you just recently got that setting... I think you are not living with it long enough. And you will then have your pears... what then?... Hubby will not be happy!

What I could suggest if you are looking for more bling would be to have the same ring remade such that you have little diamonds down the sides of the shank but I still think that ruins what is such a great and classic look now.

I didn't vote because I like them both so I think the right choice is just whichever you prefer. But if you're not sure, maybe that means you haven't found what you really want yet.

About changing your mind though, I do that all the time, ugh. But I now have a jewelry budget so I can do it guilt-free, just have to wait a while to change up anything I change my mind about (or want to re-do over time as styles change). After all, we are not jewelers or jewelry designers so can't really expect to get it right every time. Good luck with it. :)

Personally I think your current setting is the loveliest out of all but I personally do not like halo settings or lots of melee / pave set stones. I think your current setting is just so classy and stylish. Could you not add more bling with bands?

I really like your current setting as it is. Have you tried cleaning your ring? I mean a clean ring would sparkle and be like new. Even if you change you a pave setting - it can get dirty as well. Just a thought!

I am so glad i am not alone in my ‘dislike’ of halos. Your ring is beautiful as is. If you want to jazz up the look, get a diamond band Instead..two rings for probably the price of one. And more flexibility in wear options.

I:meant another diamond band with a different design than the one you own.

You have a beautiful ring!! That said, I voted halo because I understand what you mean about needing more (I’m the same way). :D A subtle, finely crafted halo is absolutely gorgeous IMO!

This ring belongs to an influencer I follow and I always think it looks so beautiful and classy!

Do you have a side view of your current ring? Like @Garry H (Cut Nut) said, you might be able to add a halo to your current

setting.

I'm not fond of the setting you posted. It just seems like too much to me (but then its not for me is it?). I would do the halo

with pears (like the one you posted) but skip the pave on the shank.

I also have an oval ring without a halo but with 4 small side round stones in a channel setting on each side. It was originally my RHR and very understated (and now too understated). I was asking for ideas on a reset and have considered a 3 stone setting like your current one but haven’t fully decided yet. I do understand the need for more pizzazz. I’m not sure about the 2 small round D side stones on the setting you shared. May be you need a different shape and size or none? I have these on my Pinterest board: 2DE62FB3-AC0C-4209-9332-0DDA898F14A7.jpeg
