    With the stuff we hear about Kay’s here, I wouldn’t feel safe choosing either ring!

    That being said, I think the pear halo is very cool!

    @cirk:  I know someone that had the first ring and the whole setting fell apart! She almost lost her center diamond and they did a terrible job fixing it. They literally soddered the outside of the second and third halo together.

    I wouldnt pick either, look on James allen and blue nile!

    I really like the second one! So pretty. And quite unique.

    I’d being unique is important to you I vote number 2. They are both pretty but I agree with others I might look for the pear halo elsewhere due to the low quality and inflated prices at Kays.

    I see that you like a double halo! I do too! I recommend checking out double halos set with cushion cuts, or elongated cushions! I think those look gorgeous in double halos 🙂 Good luck!

    I’ve been gong through the same thing as you, I spent the entire day looking in jewellery shops last weekend and still found nothing that screamed out at me. 

    From my own experience I would advise not getting either as there are things you still want to change about both rings. keep lookin and the right one will eventually find you! I had to look at so many to figure out what I did and didn’t like and I think after 4 months of looking I’ve found something that has all the elements I like combined. 

    That said, of the two I love the pear! 🙂

    The second one is very high, this will drive you nuts in about 6 months. Haha.

    @cirk:  my opinion is that the 2 tone halo is more wearable for every day. Remember you have to be comfortable having that on your hand every day. It took me awhile to get used to mine and ive had it a year.  

    THe pear would be more suseptable to getting caught on things because of the point. Just my opinion.

    They are both really lovely.

    @cirk:  If there are certain things you like about both why not go to a jeweler and have it custom made? You could save money or even get a bigger center stone 🙂
