    The second one. No matter how tiny the diamonds, I would never choose an I1-I2 clarity, ever. Sometimes the inclusions include minor chips and such and for something you’ll be wearing forever, it may make the diamonds chip more or break over time. The SI2 and I colour diamonds seem better for the price.

    @heavenslight:  SI2 means (by GIA standards at least) that inclusions (chips, clouds, marks, etc.) are not visible or evident unless it’s under 10x magnification. I1-I2 means that you can easily see inclusions with the naked eye. Since these diamonds are small, you may not be able to see them at all, but the integrity of the diamond would be slightly compromised if there are chips in the diamond (found with some I1-I2 stones)

    Cut and Clarity are important! Go for the ring w/ the best cut and clarity!

    Go for the one you like better. Due to the size of the diamonds you most likely wont be able to see any imperfections, anyway. For what its worth I like the look of the second one.

    It isn’t that you will see imperfections with rings that tiny but It could effect the sparkle. I got my Engagement Ring and wedding band from Robbins Brothers. They had a diamond wedding band by the same designer as my ering for $1099. Then Robbins Brothers had their own brand that looked identical for less than 500. But you could def notice was less sparkle in that band, especially next to a sparkly e-ring. 


    But now I hardly ever wear my wedding band.. so maybe not such a wise choice.

    Definitely take clarity into consideration on small diamonds.an imperfection that’s visible too the naked eye means it probably takes up most of the stone and will make it lifeless and blend into the metal. I know from experience

    @heavenslight:  Hey there! I remember talking to you awhile back. I got my Ring Bearer ring! (I can’t remember if I talked to you before or after I got my band.) I don’t have any issues with it being “less sparkly” than my Engagement Ring (which is a designer E-ring).


    Here’s some pics of that Ring Bearer ring on my hand…


    ETA: I Just noticed I posted to you just a day ago… oops. I’ll leave my pics here for future refernce though. 🙂

    @heavenslight:  Something about the Ben Bridge one is off. the alignment of the stones look janky. the Robbin Bros is much better
