Ladies please give your honest opinion. Which ring would you choose? The first one is a 1/2 round and .96 carat total halo. The second is a 2ctw bridal set with a .60 emerald center halo I almost feel the second is too much on my sz 4 finger but it is soo beautiful and blingy. It is almost double the price of the round halo but has slightly better clarity and comes with the pave band in pic. Please give your honest opinions about each and which would you personally choose 🙂
*Also, any guesses how much each one is?*

I would choose the first, but I’m probably biased because it’s very similar to my ring, only mine doesn’t have a halo. And you can get a clearer idea of people’s opinions if you add a poll 🙂

@MissSweetiepie: First, make this a poll. Second, to me there’s no comparison! #1 is ABSOLUTELY stunning and a no-brainer!

try adding a poll to get more responses. Some bees are more willing to voice their opinions by voting on a poll with a simple click of a button rather than typing (clearly I am not one of those bees…)
Both are beautiful, but definitely the first ring!!!

I would choose the first. I love bling but for some reason I don’t love the second one. It’s almost too much (and coming from me says a lot lol). I think the first one looks great on you.

Looks like I’m going against the grain but I love the second one!

@MissSweetiepie: I’m not a fan of emerald halos. I love halos, but not on an emerald cut. I think it actually takes away from the stone. I much prefer the first.

The first one is stunning, I like the second but it looks a touch gaudy.

@MissSweetiepie: I’d for sure choose the first. The center diamond in the second ring just seems completely engulfed in the bling. I know a lot of people love bling, but that ring is just way too much … And it definitely overpowers your finger.

I honestly think they are both pretty, but the fact that you said the second one is twice the price… I don’t think it it’s twice as pretty!
The halo is gorgeous.

I love #2… I just love the set! #1 is so common out there.

@MissSweetiepie: The 2nd one turns heads, it’s a lot of ring. That’s not important to me. And I have to say that I LOVE emerald cuts, probably that is in my top 3 choice of cut, and I think they are stunning on their own without being surrounded by layers of halo. I would probalby like the center stone in a halo on a plain band quite a lot. This just seems to have too much going on.
The thing is–that first one is really pretty and has plenty of coverage on your finger. It is large and lovely.
The 2nd one seems like overkill to me, but if that’s what you like and that’s what is common in your social group–ok.

the first one is gorgeous! Looks very similar to mine 🙂 Number 2 is just a little too much, and I don’t like how thick the halo looks
