    Correct, I just don't know if I like the first layout (4 baguettes and 3 rounds) or the second layout( 3 baguettes and 4 rounds)...minor detail I know. And I didn't even think about it until my jeweler asked if i had a preference.

       that is a toughy.. The smallest details are always the hardest.. I think the 4 round will produce more bling if that's what you want to go for.

      Have they ever made bands close to this style so you could see what each way will really look like?

        Choco,

        I do belive rounds catch more light and therefore have more sparkle.. But i like the look of the 4 baguettes and 3 rounds personally

          Thanks for your input, I think i'm leaning towards the same.  You and MissB are correct in that rounds have the largest sparkle factor of any cut, but it's not a determing factor for me which maybe be obvious sicne I chose an asscher for the main cut in my e-ring.

              Im torn on this!!!!  I like the 3 rounds layout better but i think when its actaully lined up with the ering i like the 3 bagettes better. I dont know why but i just think that having a round diamond in the center of the band directly beneath the asscher throws it off a little seeing as the asscher is also round. geometrically speaking i think it would look better having the bagette line up center under the asscher... does that make sense? maybe im just crazy?

                Thought I'd post one for you ladies...Have a great week!

                Great pic!!! You look beautiful and so happy! I feel like ive lost my window for engagement pics :( We were supposed to have them end of summer beginning of fall but we have been so busy! Now we are losing the fall colors and its starting to get cold. I wanted outdoor pics but i dont want to have to be bundled up with a jacket. dont know what to do

                   Ahh.. I see exactly what your saying.. that makes perfect sense.. I think that's why I too thought the 1st was more visually appealing. Tova, you have a tough decision on yours hands.

                    thanks for posting.... my sentiments exactly and when I expressed this to my Fi (almost verbatim of what you wrote) he looked at me like I was crazy. But my Asscher is actually an octagon in shape and my reset will emphasize this with the prongs that I'm using.  But I totally get the geometric symmetry that your referring to.  And since no one else was bringing this up, I thought that maybe it didn't matter, but it does.

                      I feel like i havent been on BDW for a long time!!! I missed everyone and have sooo many posts to catch up on but i have been so busy. My wedding social is in just under 3 weeks and is driving me crazy!!!! So many sleepless stressful nights and still so much to do. Ive barely been able to work on any wedding stuff. Ive just been doing my invites cause i want them out asap. Just need to come up with a belly band and i have no idea what to do. Anyone have any ideas for me?

                       

                      This is a rough draft of the pocketfold
