I got to spend the day looking at rings and talking to a jeweler about what I want. I had a lot of fun, and I think I narrowed down my choices to two rings. I can’t decide which I like more, so I thought i’d see what the Hive thought.
Sorry the pictures aren’t awesome, they’re from my Iphone. And the chipped nail polish, this was an unplanned trip!
The pear one is a 1- 3/4 TCW pear double halo, with a half carat center diamond and the rest in the halo and on the bands. It’s from Neil Lane Bridals. This is the one I think I’m leaning towards, I love the vintage feel of it, it sparkled like mad even when I took it out to the dull mall lights. The only down side is that A) it’s massive, and I live a pretty laid back life and I think it might be a bit showy. However, I also think it’s a bit more me. None of my friends have a pear shaped diamond and it’s always been my favourite shape. I got this OMG feeling when I had this on my finger, and was sad to put it back. It really is a beautiful ring.
The marquis is a Leo Diamond ring, with a half carat mariqus and an additional half carat in the setting. THis one’s a bit more modern, a little funky, and I’ve never seen anything like it. I didnt think I’d like the marquis as much as I did in this ring, this is actually the only marquis I like. This one would need a custom band to go with it, and I like it, but it’s not as classic looking as the pear to me. And even though none of them have halos, the marquis is the most popular cut with my friends (which makes me want to be different haha). Also the diamond in this one wasn’t to my liking, and I would have to order in a different diamond to get one I like more. It had some major flaws that I couldn’t get past. But it was funky and different and it’s a stand out ring on it’s own!
So, which would you pick? The pear or the marquis? And if neither, go somewhere else 😉

I much prefer the second ring. The other one seems too chunky were as the other on is much more delicate and beautiful IMO:)))))

I like the marquis one better personally, the other one is a bit too chunky for me.

I really like the pear ring, the marquis ring is just meh for me. I’m surprised that I feel that way though, usually I don’t like pears at all and really like marquis cuts! So that tells me this pear is really something special lol. :]

I think the pear has way too much going on.

Personally I would pick the marquis, but that is just me. I would go with the one you love and you obviously love the pear shape so I’d pick that. 🙂

Marquis! Not a fan of double halos, a bit too chunky for my taste.

@cirk: I like rounds best, but of those two I like the symmetry of the marquis. Plus that double halo is kind of massive.
