I like #1. You can wear a straight band with it, it’s beautiful and classic, and the upgrade to platinum vs. white gold would be a big decision making factor for me personally.

I like the halo, but I’m biased because I have a halo. I guess it depends if you like a bit more bling or a more understated look. I personally love the finger coverage of a halo.

#1 all the way! Halos are today’s trend.

I like that you can upgrade the metal type in the first ring. I’ve had white gold and it yellowed on me terribly so I told my FI it was much more important to me to have a platinum band and sacrifice diamond size. Luckily, you already have a wonderful diamond, so now I would focus on metal quality. Both are beautiful rings however, and your priorities may be different than mine. 

Happy ring hunting, and early congratulations on your engagement!!

I don’t usually like halos, but I really like that set.  In your place I would choose the first one though because of the whole plating issue.  I wouldn’t want to deal with that

You do not need to rhodium plate white gold mixed with palladium. I used to have 18kt white gold rings with palladium alloy, unplated, and it was very white. That is one of the benefits of using a palladium alloy.

 
I personally prefer gold to platinum, but it is totally a personal choice.

 
I don’t like halos much, but you should go with what you are pulled most toward!

I think you’ll like 1 better longer since you said you are a traditionalist. I personally got a platinum ring, because the wings of my ring had to be platinum and I dont like the idea of having to replate the shank. I also feel like soldering 2 different metals together makes for weak points in the ring. I dont regret my decision at all. The platinum is weighty and beautiful.

@Jmbldr:  I think no.1 is prettier! I too had a .75 heirloom round stone and was looking for a “classic” setting for it. I went with a platinum 4 prong solitaire and I think you will be happy with something similar! 🙂
