It does look pretty big, and I would venture to say it looks a little costumeish [to me]. But it’s rare I see stones in real life that size!

If you love it, rock it! Who cares if people think it’s “fake”.

It looks rather costumey to me as well, but it depends what circles you run in. I’m surrounded by people with rather modest rings (especially compared to the ones on this site), so my peers/friends/coworkers would probably assume a ring that like was fake. But if your circles are different and everyone has e-rings like that, then by all means.

It does look a bit costume-ish to me but if you like it who cares?

It is kinda costumey in my opinion. I think the same shape, just a tad smaller would look perfect (and more ‘real’) than this size

I love ovals!  I am getting an oval with a halo! I was worried about my ring being too clunky even though its 1 carat.  I went with petite pave band and halo.  Do your research on oval diamond specs because it’s a fancy not all of the light bounces back like in a round.  I would get the best cut diamond you can.

I think an oval that size would look amazing as a solitaire or with small sidestones. I think the halo (particularly, the size of this halo) overpowers the stone. That said, I dont think the stone alone looks costumish, but in that setting, sort of, yeah.

ce0604:  You don’t have sausage fingers lol! I just wanted to make sure before I answered 🙂

 

what is your ing size?

Honestly the 1.9 center stone looks like PLENTY. A 2.21 might look a little overwhelming (I never thought I’d say that!). It really doesn’t matter though if you love it though. If people think it’s fake, so what! People will have their own opinions regardless, so get whatever YOU love 🙂

I think they both look good. I actually like the two toned double halo. I even like it with the different golds. I don’t think it looks costume like.

In my circle, which we are all in our early-mid 30’s, we would probably assume its fake. And we live in a very rich, oil boom area. But that might be because most of the younger couples here put majority of their money into thier houses. The older, longer established generations usually are the ones who wear the big rings and half of them are fake. I went into a local Diamonique shop (high quality CZ’s set in platinum or gold settings) and the shop owner told me that majority of her clients are wealthy people who rather lock up their big diamonds and wear CZ’s for everyday wear.

But for what it’s worth, out of the two rings, I like double halo with the two tone gold one better hands down!
