    @knim:  Baguettes, baguettes, baguettes! No offense to anyone, but I am so sick of halos. lol. I really love the baguettes, if I hadn’t already picked my ring I would get one with baguette side stones. Very classy. 🙂

    My ring is basically the second one – I love it because its so classic and understated. I ended up getting a eternity band for more bling/sparkle since its true emerald cuts don’t give as much sparkle.

     

    my only warning is think very carefully about what wedding band you will get as its very hard to find something that will work without a gap unless you go for a custom curved band

    @knim:  i prefer the baguettes with the emerald cut.  it’s a classic look that will never go out of style.  also, they both have linear cuts. 

    have you seen trapezoid shaped stones?  they look amazing with emerald cut stones.

    I loooooove tapered baguettes but I think with an emerald I would maybe go for a halo because otherwise you won’t get much sparkle.

    @mypinkshoes:  +1!

    I didn’t vote because with a rectangular stone, I love trapezoid side stones. It’s elegant and classic, but also provides more finger coverage than baguettes.

    @knim:  If you go with 1 carat, I’d get a halo.  If you go with 1.25-1.5, I’d go the baguette route!  Both are gorgeous!!  I couldn’t even vote, lol.

    Have you ever seen a baguette halo? I’m not a huge fan of halos, but I think that style actually looks SO cool. (And it seems like a good compromise in this situation!)

    @knim:  hi! I just wanted to let you know, I used to have an emerald with a halo  I loved it at first but then realized when you have a stone that doesn’t sparkle sorrounded by a sparkly halo, it can make the center stone look dull. I’m JUST pointing it out to you because it bothered me sO much ! I actually now have a radiant Solitaire. The first ring is gorgeous though! It looks like the one I had. Didn’t want to make your decision any harder lol so Hope that helps 🙂
