I’m planning on proposing to my girlfriend over Christmas (probably Christmas morning) and am deciding on the ring at the moment.
by way of background – were both 25 and have been together for 4 years. She’s been talking about engagement for a while and a few of our friends have got engaged in the past few months (I was planning in any event).
She doesn’t like big diamonds and has already made that clear. She works in law enforcement and I suspect she would probably feel a bit conscious of it.
I’ve narrowed it to two rings – both are top graded diamonds (F or above, GIA certified and excellent cut). The pave ring is a 0.29 diamond, the solitaire 0.25.
I have attached a picture of both together and would be extremely grateful for any views!

I love the pave, but from the way that you describe her I think she may like to solitaire. They are both beautiful. I’m sure she will love either one. Congratulations!

I like the pave. I think that though she doesnt like big diamonds she will like the added femininity of the pave. Its just enough bling with the little diamond.

I prefer the pave. I would put in a poll!

Pave diamonds can fall out of the setting easily (and especially if she’s working in law enforcement). You can’t go wrong with a solitarire and let her pick out a band she likes! 😉

Both rings are great! I would prefer the pave but for her being in law enforcement, the simple but lovely solitaire will work better.

both are beautiful. i think from how you described your gf, i would pick the solitaire for her. the pave one may be too blingy for her.

I like the pave. It’s not too much, just enough.

The one on the right. The solitaire. I feel that the pave one with all the bling compenstates for a “big diamond.” There is a chance that they can fall out easily. And with her being in law enforcement…it may not be a great idea.
*Add a poll!*
Good luck on the proposal!

I love the pave but the solitaire might be more practical for her work.
