    I love love love the first one. The others are very nice, but the first one definitely stands out to me and I don’t think it looks too young at all.

    @SvedkaBreakfast:  I think the first one with a straight pave or precious metal band would look gorgeous! I think any setting that’s not like a simple solitaire runs the risk of looking dated in decades to come (just look at the settings of the 80s). Just get what you love now!

    @SvedkaBreakfast:  I voted halo cushion, but I change my mind to the first one!! I think halo cushion will look dated and you mentioned the merald doesn’t sparkle enough, so I’d pick #1!!

    @SvedkaBreakfast:  First of all, welcome to the bee, and congratulations on getting to the point where you’re looking at engagement rings! Good luck!

    I love the first one, and I think you love it the most too! And it looks like you’re getting your landslide 🙂 It sounds to me like you’re more into it, with a round stone, than either the cushion or emerald, and rounds are veey classic. 🙂 If you ever really don’t like the setting any more, perhaps you could keep the center stone, and have it set in something else?

    I’ve only had my engagement ring for six months, and personally I think it’s “quirkier” than yours, but a related idea, and I love it more every day. Here’s a pic so you see what I mean:

    I like the first ring, but I went for a style that I’ve seen another bee compare to a teenager’s promise ring, so there’s that.  I’m happy with my choice, and it will always be a reminder of the person I was when we first got engaged, even if my style changes in the future.

    @SvedkaBreakfast:  I love the first. Im biased though because it’s similar to mine. You could get a simple band to help make it more “traditional”. This is what I did with mine:

    Emerald IMO 🙂 it’s more elegant and classy and timeless, the second one is gorgeous though…

    @SvedkaBreakfast:  That’s my ring, not yours. 😉  I don’t think you’ll have to worry about anyone saying yours is a teenager’s promise ring.

    I voted for the first one because it’s the one that you seem to like most. But I admit that I am also biased. A work friend got almost that exact ring a few months ago because we work in genetics and her husband thought the band looked like a DNA double helix. And who wouldn’t want a double helix on their ring finger for the rest of their life?!? I digress, but they’ve all loved and I think you would be happy with any of them. But i would pick the first one.
