@Princess bee:  Nah. I think its classic, but its not what I thought it would be (round six prong solitaire). I would try it on though, just because it is fairly wide and will cover a lot of your finger.

Traditional does not equal boring 🙂  it looks classic but heavy.  how does it look on your finger?

I’m not particularly partial to the channel set for myself. I would recommend going to a local jeweler to get the best bang for your buck. Since it is late I will look for a few from the chain stores. If budget is an issue these are some choices I might look at (they are around $1000):

it’s 990, so maybe you could pair it with a white gold wedding band… but buy that later?

Oh I vote for the second link from elovesm. 

To me the first ring emphasizes the small size of the center stone since the band thickness matches the stone and the diamonds in the channel are almost as large as the center stone.  

But, depending on your finger size and your style, the zale options might be too dainty.

I agree you will have to go and try them on to get the style that fits you.  I think with your budget you should be able to find something beautiful.

Yours is okay, but I like the ones that @elovesm posted and I think they’re more what you are looking for… The second set is nice, in your budget with a wedding band… And the third ring is great! …but no wedding band

I tried the second one that elovesm posted before in Zales. It was so beautiful. However, I want you to know it is very dainty. I love x 10000000 dainty rings so it didn’t bother me at all (my current e-ring is dainty) but some people don’t like it too much. :3

If you like it then it’s not too traditional.

I have a plain gold band with 6-prong solitaire, so I’ll always vote for traditional.  🙂  Halos aren’t my thing.  But you should get exactly what you love and will be thrilled to look at on your finger every day.
