I agee with the PP. While I love a lot a bling, I love the detailed yet, simplistic design of the first one.

@mandyjoy94:  I actually had the second ring you posted!  It was my engagement ring that DH picked out for me, but we had MAJOR quality issues with it and after 11 months of repairs we decided to return it and pick something new. 

I loved the ring b/c he picked it out but if I can be perfectly honest here, it was a little too much for me.  The e-ring is great on its own but once you add in the double bands its pretty overwhelming, IMO.  I may get flack for this on wb, but I was a little relieved that we has so many issues b/c then I got to pick out a ring I really loved.

Long story short, I would pick ring #1 if I were you.

@mandyjoy94:  It continuously lost stones.  I got engaged and within 2 weeks I had lost one of the stones on the split shank band.  The setting is a mini-pave and the prongs just wouldn’t hold a stone after getting it resized.  This happened about 5 or six times.  We’d get it fixed and it would come back and another one would fall out.  Most of the time it was just in the shank but once it was in the halo.  That sucked!  Eventually the store (People’s Jewelers, Canadian version of Zales) just got a new ring brought in rather than fixing the original.  It happened again!  We actually went through 5 brand new rings!  One brand new ring I got even lost a stone within 24 hours of getting it.  It kept happening but I was determined to get married in the ring he proposed in.  Eventually I realized the ring needed to be returned and we needed to move on.  People’s said they never had problems with that setting before but who knows. 

I researched the ring a bit after the fact and it seems like other people had the same problems.  If you choose it I wish you the best of luck, but definately recommend purchasing some sort of warranty.  Good luck!

Even if the second ring didn’t have the problems a PP mentioned, I much prefer the Verragio.

Neither. I would buy a cheap placeholder ring and save up for your dream Verragio ring. Why spend money on moissanite and risk the setting getting ruined when the moissanite is put in and then taken out for the diamond.
