My boyfriend of almost 8 years is attempting to discreetly find out what style engagement ring I want...i'm trying not to think too far into the stuff he says/asks, but he's terrible at being discreet and I always figure him out. To be honest, from what he's said, i think he already has a diamond and just needs a setting. I'm trying not to ruin it though because i never have ANY surprises...

Anyways, I have always wanted a ring just like these ones (more towards the one on the right that has a slightly thicker band than one on left) I found these 2 bands from James Allen that i ADORE, but i can't figure out which one is similar to the ones in the photo? Please share your opinions! Does anyone have these James Allen settings?

Neither of them are like the rings posted. The settings you linked have a LOT more metal between the stones on the band.

^Thanks for your replies!

I had spoken to the girl with the ring on the right, and she told me this is her band

http://www.israeldiamond.com/?page=detail&stylenum=EN6593WG

I thought they looked similar but I guess I'm way off!

Unfortunately, that website won't sell just the setting by itself. I know he wants it to stay under $650 or less - have you seen any websites with something like that? I may have to just tell him to go with a plain solitaire

You won't be happy w/ a $650 pave setting's quality. Can you do a basic solitaire and upgrade that later?
I did because I had no idea what setting I wanted.

Do NOT buy a pave setting for that price. Swanky is right, get a plain solitare. The workmanship and the stone quality will suck and the stones will not sparkle much if at all.
