What is the best ratio for a 3 stone diamond ring with a 6.4mm center what should the side stones be. I don't like it when the sides look too close to the size of the center. I like that engagement diamond to still be the showcase. Thanks in advance.

I've got a 1 Ct center, with .25 Ct sides...I really like this ratio. The center stone is the focus, and the sides are just big enough to be noticed!

Are the diamonds all round?

If the center is a round, it's probably a carat or just a hair under. In my opinion, 1ct centers look best with .25ct sidestones (.50ct tdw). But they also look great with .15ct sidestones (.30ct tdw).

Go to the website for D Vatche rings. I'd post the URL, but I think it would appear as *****************. Grrr... Anyhow, they have photos of different size centers (.5, .75, 1.0, 1.5) with different size sidestones.

Take care and good luck!

yes it is a round actually. I had posted so many pics I forgot people might not realize.

Yea, good idea, I will go look there for ideas on ratio.

Anyone else have pics or opinions?

it is GORGEOUS. What do you wear in it's place right now? (just wondering). Wow very perfect.

So each side is .25 for a tcw of .5 on the sides yes?

Get that baby sized it rocks. how wide is your band/setting?

oh and to get an idea on perspective what is your ring size? Mine is a 7.

Hmmm...I'm not sure about the width of the band, I think it's 21/2 or 3mm wide.

It's a right hand ring, so I wear my others there now

I'm pretty sure it's a size 7 1/2 now, I need about a 6 3/4 or so...It sounds pretty similar to yours

The center is .85 and the side stones are .12 each. If you want a true three-stone ring, I would suggest .25 stones for a 1 ct center. However, if you want the center stone to take center stage, keep the side stones smaller--they will accent the center diamond and make it look bigger.

Oooo liz, yes mine is a .85 center too.

No I don't think I want a true 3 stone look. I do want the center to look large and in charge and bigger. What size stones trail off on yours? And how many?

This is also gorgeous.

My reason was wanting more glitz in a single ring. I don't think I want a wedding ring after all if I don't have to.

a solitare of my size alone looks incomplete to me. Ya know?

The ring has four diamonds .015 each pave set on either side of the center stone. I too considered a solitaire but wanted something a bit more unique. The pave sort of gives the ring an antique look.
