    I’d get the diamond, if you decide you really want the other ring sell it for much more than you paid for it (won’t be hard) and buy the other ring and bank the rest of the $.

    @MandyT00:  if the diamond is nice and clean and you like the look and size why not get that and spend the remaining money on a nice reset into the pave rose gold you love? You would then have the best of both?

    i have both diamond and moissy and I do love the size, color and clarity of my moissy though. See avatar.

    I would for sure go with the diamond.  For the money you are saving getting the diamond you get it reset in rose gold and it would probably still be cheaper then the moissanite ring.  I love pawn shops….think I need to go check some out!!

    Congrats and let us know what you pick!!

    the second one looks like my ring!

    Here’s what my set looks like (but I had the diamonds in the band upgraded since this picture to match the color of my center stone):

     

    You can always have the setting changed later if you change your mind!

    i like the band of the first one better, but if the diamond’s reasonably good quality i’d go for that

    It depends on the quality of the diamond. If you like it and it is clear and sparkly, what I would do is get that one and spend some of the money you are saving to switch out the band to rose gold.  A rose gold solitaire setting shouldnt cost you more than $300. Good luck!

    If you aren’t into the yellow gold, you could have it rhodium plated, but it won’t last. It will show through much quicker than white gold that is rhodium plated. 

    Personally I would try to find out as much as I could about the diamond. It looks very nice, but do you know the cut, colour, and clarity? Knowing these facts and understanding them would make me far more comfortable making the decision.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide.

    @MandyT00:  The solitaire, for sure! You cant beat that deal, its a great size, and it looks perfect on your finger! And you can use the rest of the money on a really amazing band.

    Edit: Just saw your update. That sucks so bad!

    i love a classy solitaire. you can always get diff wedding bands to try out and see what you like best. Its fun to be able to “dress it up” both are beautiful but the plain solitiare gets my vote! so beautiful!
