    @MDolly:  Both rings are GORGEOUS! I would say to get the Tacori ring that you are in love with, with the antique diamond. When the antique setting is empty, you could always put a different stone in the center and wear it as a RHR. You need to do what makes you happy. You will still have both the diamond and the setting, but not together, so you wouldn’t be ruining anything imo 🙂 Good luck!

    @MDolly:  The antique one is more unique. The question is do you want a ring a lot of other women will have or not?

    First off welcome to the hive and your ring is stunning. Everyone here knows I am in love with this Tacori setting

     

    really EVERYTHING Tacori, BUT……I really think that ring is unique and you shouldnt change it. It has too much history and I actually like it better then the Tacori

    I’d keep the antique setting. The Tacori is pretty, but isn’t really special. The antique will make people do a double-take.

    They’re both beautiful, but I really love things that are different or unique. I’d keep the ring as it is. 🙂

    I love your current setting. I feel like artisans put so much more effort into ring design in the past, than most do today… rings today seem to be more about being mass-produced and “good enough” than unique pieces of art (in general. Artisans still exist but it’s not like before.)

    I think Tacoris are nice for modern designs, but don’t hold a candle to good quality antique designs.

    Try wearing the antique one for a while.  It’s so special to wear something that’s been in your family for that long!  (I can relate, my ring was my great-grandmother’s and then grandmother’s and is from the same period as yours.)  If you are still lusting after the Tacori in a few months after your engagement, you can always switch it up.  

    They’re both beautiful but WOW!  That antique is amazing.

    I prefer the antique ring. Much more unique and special in my opinion, and I think it is beautiful. 

    However, if you really want the other ring I know how it feels to not be entirely happy with the ring you do have so I suggest:

    1. Seeing if you can put another stone (even a coloured stone) in the antique (though I prefer it as is!) and setting the stone in the Tacori;

    2. Waiting to get the Tacori for a significant anniversary with a new stone so you can switch rings/wear one on each hand/put the antique away for safekeeping to pass down to another generation.

    I don’t think it’s wasteful at all to want a new setting that is totally you. You’re the one wearing it every day for the rest of your life, not your family. I say get the Tacori setting and put a gemstone in the antique ring and wear it as a right hand ring!

    OMGEEEEE! the antique one by far is so much more beautiful!! I think if you change it you will regret it for sure! Also the setting is so large and lovely, i would of never guessed it was a 1.25ct diamond. looks more like 2 carat on your hand! such great finder coverage. Perhpas to kill your craving for a cushion cut you could one day get a coloured stone in a cushion shape for your right hand?
