      Here's a pic of my e-ring.  I originally wanted the e-ring to have pave sidestones too, but in the end my fiance got me the solitaire (was too chicken to have a setting custom made, in case I didn't like it in the end. lol, poor men).  I fell in love with it just the way it is, but I still want some sparkle on my wedding band, in case I want to wear it on its own (to work and stuff).

          Awww...my ring has been in the shop for WEEKS being resized...when I first got measured they said my ring size was a 7....got my ring and it was sliding all over the place!  So they resized me and it was all the way down to A 6...

           

          They resized it...but it didnt pass their quality inspection so they had to RE-Send it and the waiting game continues.   Its weird cause when  i say "my fiancee" they automatically look at my ring finger....aaaannnnddd its empty ...then I have to go into the..."no..I have a ring but...." which doesnt sound good! LOL! 

           

          But ANNNNYYYWWAAAYYY...heres my ring :)...i miss it....

          I know exactly how you feel!!! I have been engaged for a total of 6 months and my ring has been away for about 2.5 months of those 6 in total.  I currently am without my ring for 4 weeks.  I get really tired of people saying, where is your ring if you are engaged, I started just wearing some cheap ugly thing so they wouldn't ask ha!

            It's very pretty, no wonder you miss it!  I would be devastated if I had to part with mine - which is why I gave strict directions that when he got me a ring, it would have to be THE real ring, and in my correct size, so I could wear it right away.  He obliged :)

             

            It's funny, I'm the other way - I don't like to say "fiance," so I say boyfriend most of the time.  People probably wonder if I have a boyfriend on the side in addition to my fiance, since I have the ring. LOL

              So cool! I love vintage rings!

              coincidentally, here's a few pics of the setting my great-grandmother chose, which was designed to do exactly what the halo does today - make the diamond (which is round-cut) look larger:

                Bride and JayKay I TOTALLY know how you feel!!!!!  We moved up to Peterborough in April and I have ONE friend from University who lives here, well my ring was in getting some repairs for about 2 weeks but that was when I met one of my friends friends who is now my friend (confusing?!) and her running joke is that I never wear my ring! I never take my ring off so this "joke" is getting a bit much lol but she always says it!!! I was like I had no ring for 2 weeks it wasn't my fault.  I am totally with JayKay, I want to pick up an inexpensive "fakey" that looks like my ring for when it goes for inspection, cleanings and repairs lol

                I totally recommend getting a fakey ring! Its the best thing I ever did, and hardly anyone can even tell the difference! Like you I never take my ring off so it just feels naked without it so its nice to be able to wear something on that finger that somewhat resembles my ering.

                  Starrysim, I also have a six-prong round solitaire. I was having the same issue, nothing looked right with my engagement ring. My jeweler suggested prong-set diamonds on my band ( versus channel, pave, etc.) bc it would match the look of the prong-set center stone. Good luck! I hope you find something you love!
