@MrsBearToBe:  I really love the halo. My SO doesn’t though… so I have ring envy :) I think the first one is beautiful and different, but I worry about the prongs swalloing/taking away from the diamond.

I really like the 6 prong, but thats more my style.

If the prongs are set flush – they should never snag.

@MrsBearToBe:  I just think they cover too much of the stone. I want to see the whole thing!!!! :)

How have I missed that first setting? I am always lurking on MCo’s website!

I have had three rings made by MCo (two w/ prongs, one bezel) and I think the prongs are pretty good quality. However, mine don’t have stones on the prongs so if you receive the first ring and think otherwise do not take off the tag and you can still return the ring and either get a refund or just have the stone set into another setting that you think will look better! No big deal! :-)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first setting! The second is also a pretty choice too, but my vote is for the first.

Yes, the bigger the stone the less white it will be, but with the Amora enhancement I doubt you’ll be disappointed unless you are REALLY REALLY color sensitive. The 8mm (or 2ct equiv.) is about an H on the diamond color grade scale.

I love love love the halo setting!!! I have read of the odd pave stones falling out but apparently it’s not that common and due to the size of the small stones, it’s inexpensive to have them replaced. 

Eng 992 looks like a beautiful setting especially the detail on the side of the prongs! i love 6 prongs on round stones but my only concern would be the prongs being a bit on the thicker side covering up more of the stone. 

Borh are beautiful rings though!!

I have one!!  I have a cathedral setting with double prongs (sol207, 2mm band, double prong upgrade).  The prongs occasionally catch on things, but they are definitely not flush with the stone (not supposed to be).  It’s not a big issue though.  The first ring you posted looks like the prongs are totally flush.

I don’t have anything with pave stones from them, so can’t answer #2.

For your third question– I don’t think it would impact the clarity, just maybe the color.  I have a 7.5mm amora moissy and it’s pretty white– certainly has more color in particular lights, but overall it’s pretty impressive.  I don’t have experience with smaller stones, but based on their charts, I think it would only be a letter or so whiter.

 

This is my ring:

@MrsBearToBe:  haha, so many decisions!  Yes, the double prongs are a little sharp, sometimes I poke my FI by accident…. oops!  But I love the more exposed stone.

@MrsBearToBe:  Purely aesthetic.  You can look at the standard prongs on sol207 (either four or six) to see what they look like too.
