I really love the second one with the halo.  I have a practical ring, for both budget and personal style reasons, but I do love a big rock!  My diamond is very clear (can’t seem to think of the specific clearity right now) andit makes all the difference! I hope that helps!

I love ovals, but was ridiculously picky about avoiding the bow tie effect that I gave up on them during my ering search. Ovals with spilt shank settings are insanely beautiful. That 3 stone is gorgeous!

i think the oval with the halo looks best on your finger, plus i LOVE halos. 🙂

@KatyElle: its really quite impossible to avoid entirely just due to the nature of the cut. I have a 3 stone oval e ring with excellent cut and depending on the angle & light you can see a bow tie if you look. I doubt anyone would really ever notice that unless they knew what they were looking for.

If you’re looking for ideas I say take any setting with an oval or emerald cut diamond(s) and have someone customize it to your own. My 3 stone setting is actually based on a tacori setting with round stones.

I even sometimes find my 3 stone ring (only slightly larger than yours in the photo) to be too much bling at times so I can understand your dilemma. I really love the way the second setting looks on your hands, but I hear you on the practical side.

@kermie: This is true, which is why I like the Barion Oval cut, it almost completely eliminates the bow-tie while not compromising the shape 🙂

ETA: It’s not so much I care if other people would notice it, I’d notice it, I’m kind of a crazy gem/cut hound lol

I have an oval and I freaking LOVE it.

I hadn’t ever heard about the bowtie, how interesting… and yeah I can see one in my ring a little too!  Huh.  Oh well… still love it.  Mine’s a 1.05 carat/E color/VS1 on white gold with round channel set diamond band.

I like the halo you posted a LOT.. but agree that maybe that’s something you should upgrade/change to after getting a simpler setting first.  I orginally wanted a plain band but FI surprised me with diamonds… and I don’t think I want it any fancier for the time being.  Looking forward to seeing how the wedding ring(s) look against it.

Mine! (ATTACK OF THE GIANT PICTURE)

My ering is an oval sapphire and I love it! I think both of your options are gorgeous, so you can’t go wrong!

I actually really LOVE the second one and normally I’m not a fan of halos!

We haven’t done too much serious shopping, but I’m pretty much obsessed with having two extremely thin micropave bands on both side of my engagement ring.  Maybe just one at the ceremony, then the second one for an anniversary or something 🙂

@MegnTim: I think this is a great idea! If you aren’t fully sold on either ring then get the BEST diamond you can for the money now and worry about the setting later when you find something you are absolutely in love with! The prices of diamonds is going up soon too so get the best diamond for your budget now and you won’t regret it.

This is my absolute favorite oval e-ring setting, it’s by Tacori and pricey but when you are ready to find a home for your beautiful diamond it may be something to keep in mind. It has the halo look but is in micropave so it’s almost invisible and avoids that “bling”-look. And I’m very partial because I have a Tacori plain shank Halo!
