    Although the hibiscus ring is beautiful, I like the more traditional ring for an engagement ring. I agree with dad, people may wonder if it’s a cocktail ring. Maybe you should still get it for your right hand though 😉

    I love the first ring – it’s from Na Hoku, right? Gorgeous and unique! If you plan to wear a wedding band, perhaps the second ring would be a better choice as it might be difficult to find a band that fits nicely along the hibiscus. I agree with Btrfly that the hibiscus ring would be a great right hand ring, anniversary ring, etc. 🙂 

    As for moissanite, your friend might think it’s fake but she is simply misinformed. It’s a wonderful choice, imo. 

    Another thought…what about morganite or pink sapphire or pink moissanite which would look gorgeous with the rose gold?

    @nanikoa:  i think your dad is right.  the first one will not be good for every day wear.

    What about the first one plus a plain rose gold band so that you always have you wedding band but can wear the fancier ring whenever you won’t be doing anything to hurt it?

    @nanikoa:  No, it’s all the tiny pave stones everywhere. Pave by its nature is delicate because the prongs holding it in place are teeny tiny and the metal below it usually has holes drilled in it where the diamonds go, so it’s essentially been swiss-cheesed. Pave on prongs is pretty much the worst of all worlds in terms of structural integrity – prongs get whacked a lot, and pave prongs are much, much more likely to collapse. Three-sided pave is also bad for the same reason. And with any pave, resizing is difficult and often results in loosening the pave, making stones more likely to fall out. And if a stone falls out, I have seen many people who aren’t properly skilled with pave create a chain reaction of loosening all the stones surrounding it when they replace it. And I’ve seen relatively few jewelers who are skilled enough at making and maintaining pave jewelry to avoid those problems. So basically, these rings are all pretty, but if you want to wear your ring all the time, you either need to choose a different design or accept that you’re picking a design with less structural integrity than a basic solitaire. I have three-sided pave myself, because it’s super pretty and I couldn’t imagine having an engagement ring without it, but I’m aware of the risks, do everything I can to minimize them (never wear my ring at home or when I’m carrying heavy things, am very aware of what I’m doing with that hand, put it in my wallet if something comes up that I have to do that might damage it), and accept that despite all this, shit might happen anyway.
