    I picked 4! But 3 is a close second.

    @Lrroma181986:  It’s hard to choose because they’re all so different, and ultimately you need to pick the one that you are most drawn to.  (I believe that halos will go out of style, but that doesn’t mean you will necessarily stop loving your ring, and if you do, you can upgrade!)  If budget is an issue, have you considered moissanite?  You can find all 5 of these rings on MoissCo.

    No doubt, Option 1.  It’s gorgeous and timeless!

    I picked #1… I just love it. Very pretty. Halos are pretty, but to me it seems everyone has one these days. #1 I haven’t seen yet. Very nice.. You can’t go wrong with any of them really.

    I love the simplicity of #2.  #1 is my second favorite.

    I really like #4!  I thinkt that it gives you that halo effect, without completely outdoing your center stone.  As a solitaire gal (which I do love), I think that in my next life..I’d pick something like that as my engagment ring 🙂

    @Lrroma181986:  ooh, I just saw the pic of the ring on your hand.  I originally voted for #1 (I’m a sucker for a cathedral setting), but now that I’ve seen the photo I think the ring you have is *gorgeous.*  I’d keep it!!!!!

    There’s so much more to picking a diamond than size. I worry about the price of that 1 carat… there’s no such thing as a deal that good for a nice diamond. However, that style of ring is my favorite of these, I find the others too “busy.”

    Like your mom, I feel that halos take away from the center diamond, in fact they can look like cluster rings to me. I find it a very busy, blurry look, and I like well-defined, clean designs. But that’s my taste. What is yours – truly? They are very popular right now, but yes, the trend will wane, and will you still be happy with it, when it’s as popular as a marquise diamond in yellow gold with a baguette ring wrap is now?

    I originally voted for #4, but after seeing 5 on your finger.. I think that is actually my favorite. It really is a beautiful ring, and a ring doesn’t have to be huge to be pretty!
