not a fan of the princess cut, myself. my ideal ring is a lovely quality solitaire stone, preferably round or oval. if you want more sparkle, the wedding band can bring it.

I have 3.25 cts of round and princess cut. I actually had baguettes taken out and replaced with the princess cut. IMO Baguettes have ZERO sparkle and get so dirty and are hard to clean. So my point is, anything but baguettes are good. lol

I think you are saying you have an engagement ring that has a princess cut stone and you are asking what other style stones will go in either a wrap or band with it? My engagement ring is mostly princess cut but also many round. My wedding band is 1.0 cts of round diamonds. So mine are mixed and I like that it doesn't look like anyone else's. In fact, on our 10th anniversary, I plan on getting a matching band to go on the other side.

You can google "wedding ring sets with round and princess cut stones" and look at images to see how they look. Good luck.

I LOVE princess cuts. because of the cut the diamond appears larger than the actual carat weight.
I like the halo of diamonds around it, too. I am having mine re-worked to add this detail.

google 'halo princess cut' and you should get a lot of images:)

I'm not a fan of the princess cut. It doesn't have as many facets as a round/brilliant cut and therefore does not have much sparkle.

The perfect engagement ring is a round/brilliant solitaire in a 6-prong Tiffany setting. .75-1.25ct seems to be the nicest looking size range. Not too big or small. That way, the wedding band can be ANYTHING....a band, a wrap, a slide-in, whatever.

You get what look you like best.

When we were picking out the new set we are getting for our 10th anniversary vow renewal ceremony...I think I put on at least 15 different rings, settings, and stones. You just know when you find what you like. Go to a good jewelry store and they'll work with you to make you happy.

So you are choosing this engagement ring? Get what you want as long as you can AFFORD it and not go into debt.

Personally, I did not choose my diamond and I was very surprised. I have a solitaire on a gold band with a gold wedding band. I couldn't be happier.

I think a lot of extras around the focal point take away from the diamond if it is a quality stone. Mine is an old cut, about 3.5 carats and I am well insured.

Sometimes simple looks best.... be careful to not be so gaudy that everyone will believe it is fake. It is a balance.

I have a 1.0 ct princess cut in the middle, surround by 4 angled .25 ct marquise cut.
I have to say, I've never seen a ring like mine and I get tons of compliments on it. The angling of the smaller diamonds makes the center diamond pop.

Bottom line. Get what you like. Not what others think. Presumably you're going to be wearing it and looking at it for the rest of your life!

I personally don't like Princess Cut diamonds. What carat weight is the diamond, that can make a difference as well. The color and clarity matters a LOT in Princess Cut.

If you are set on that - couple it with a pair of trillion cut sapphires. They will take the "edge" off and give some extra "umph" I feel that Princess cut diamonds need.

If you like a lot of pop then by all means, get some bling! Also, choosing a setting that is high set will add lots of bling!

My friend wanted a very plain ring. Just a center stone. And then decided that it needed more bling so she chose a wedding band full of diamonds! It's a beautiful combo.

Mine is a larger center princess cut ring flanked by two smaller ones and then with 3 even smaller round diamonds embedded in the band. I love it.

My advice would be to TRY ON several different styles and sizes and see what you like, and what suits your hand. A ring may look amazing on display and then just 'meh' on your hand. I didn't think I'd like my ring when we saw it, but then I tried it on a loved it!

answers from Oklahoma City on

I think it really depends on the color of your stones and metal in the band. I have a half carat solitaire that has super sparkle and shine. If I put any sort of wrap around it the stone sort of disappears and looks bland. My solitaire and 2 plain bands is insured for about $1200. It's a plain set that had no other stones.

The metal is a blend that is neither yellow or white gold. It is somewhere in between. So yellow gold looks yellow and cheap. White looks like shiny aluminium or silver. So neither one looks nice with my set.

So finding something to go with it is nearly impossible. I have tried, I love the look of a decorative band around a center stone.

You'll have to go and put the wraps around your stone, each and every one you can find until you find the right color and cuts of stones to go with them.

Good luck!
