Hey there gals!
I wrote a post earlier about having to exchange the e-ring (eng560) my Fiance got me from MoissyCo. I have since took the advice from other bees, looked through the site and picked several e-rings that I am considering! I’d love for you all to please choose which you think is the prettiest and would look best on my short fat fingers! Lol. Oh, and what size stone I should get! There are just so many options! Thanks a bunch!
Here are some picutures of the ring I had to return. The center is a forever brilliant 2 ct stone.
In case you need pictures of the poll options:
Eng731 (option 1):
Eng585 (option 2):

I like #1 for the setting, but I like thinner settings.
What carat sizes are you considering?
Post # 4
Your first option looks just like my ring (but I have a split shank), so I voted with my bias. I think it will flatter your hand the most.

I like the third one. I love the bezel and that it’s a little more understated than the second. In a good way 😉

First one, it is daintier and will suit your hand better. 🙂
Second choice would be the third option.
With either, I’d go for a 7.5mm center stone, since the halo adds quite a lot to it for finger coverage.

I was thinking 1.5 ct. I really love the second option but I’m afraid it’ll be too thick and look gaudy

I like the first one! The last one looks a teensy bit like a class ring to me!

I like a 1.5! The halo will definitely make it look between a 1.75 to a 2 ct.

Hmmm, all similar…I like the first one’s style but #3 has the bezel setting, which is an awesome setting for an engagement ring. It secures your center stone and doesn’t catch on anything.
I missed reading your earlier post. Do you mind telling again why you need to return the ring? It might help with giving advice on a new one 😉

I voted number two. I like the stones on the side of the halo, and that they aren’t slanted, but straight on the sides. that’s JMO though.

@NikkyS– I had to return my previous ring because it was too bulky and the stone was too large. I didn’t like it. It’s eng560 with a 2 ct stone. =[
Here’s a picture of the one I sent back:

Have you thought of an oval or emerald shape to alongate your fingers? Round halo seems to overpower your hand.
I got a pear shape to alongate after I tried it in a store. It looked the best on my hand compare to all other shapes.

Am not a particular fan of halo’s nor sim’s but I chose #1 for the thin band. I think #3 looks too much like the one you sent back as far as it’s profile- too bulky, think 2 is as well. Actual photos verus illustrations would be better. I don’t think your fingers look short at all by the way!
Since you asked, would stick to lower carat weight too if you’re planning to allow people to assume it’s a diamond. (and most will of course make that assumption based on it being a whitish stone on the left hand as an “engagement” ring )
Perfect very sparkly stones in very large carat sizes (& sometimes not even very large carat sizes depending on ones circumstances- people around us usually know us pretty well) tend to shout: “fake” and look gaudy on the average person. Although noone is likely to be rude enough to question the ring out-loud. None of that may matter to you though if not, more power to you.
(sorry girls with large moissanites or cz’s-my opinion, don’t post hater comments to me LOL)
Anyway, congrats on your engagement. That’s the main thing. The ring is just the icing on the cake.
My 2c, you may deserve change.

@V_for_Vixen: I voted for the first one. Many rings with the halo design that I’ve seen make the ring really big looking. I’d vote for the smallest stone you can live with, just because that halo takes up so much finger real estate! Good luck with your next choice!
