Upgrade?
Currently, Azure contains 2x 4mm RB side stones.

I was thinking of 2 things:
-upgrading the side stones to 5mm <-- my thinking is this would give the perfect finger coverage.
-getting a new setting with claw prongs <-- I love the ring... but claw prongs would make it perfect.

So my questions to you are:

Should I:

1) upgrade to 5mm stones and get new claw prong setting?

2) keep the current stones and get new claw prong setting?

Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com! Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com! Sparkly eye candy found at thefacetlounge.com!

and as far as new setting goes -- unsure whether I want to do the same cartier style setting or go with a poppyseed. I think I'll need to do some research as to which is more low profile. I love both equally.

RE: Upgrade?
Can you get the prongs clawed without changing the setting?

That's a question for the professionals on this board.


I'm not sure how easy it would be since this is palladium.

Ah I see.

I may be in the minority, but I like the ring's current proportions.

Both, and get my setting from poppyseed (with the closed off sides) - set by IDJ (who do the best claws) - it's absolute perfection.

Looking at the posted photos, it looks great. But then I look down at my hand and it looks smaller.

I do like the daintier look. I was contemplating getting a couple low profile bands to add sparkle... that may be what I'm missing. But I figured out that Jules does not like being left at home. I guess she really is "the one". So Azure gets to be a RHR most of the time.

THIS, is a real phenomenon! This is why I upgraded one of my rings a week after I got it. It looked great in photos, but way smaller in real life. What gives camera, what gives?

RE: Upgrade?
I think 5mm. sides AND claw prongs would be pretty and give it more balance.
