If it were me I would go for the first set BUT keep in mind I am very “classic” when it comes to my wedding set. I have a solitaire (diamond) and a thin diamond pave band. I absolutely love the second set though! I think if you love color you should get the second one! It is very beautiful. 🙂

If you love colour then stick with colour!
I love the colour of garnets too however a deep pigeon blood red is very rare in rubies so you might have to go down the colour enhanced route or wait/ pay a king’s ransom for the right stone.
I think buying coloured gemstones is even more of a minefield than buying diamonds do sticking to a very reputable seller and/or certified stones and whipping your ring to a reputable coloured gem appraiser within the return period is a good idea.

I love the second set!!! I think it’ll look amazing! I particularly like the halo around the diamond halo. Very unique!

I love to have a pop of colour and think it shows of your personally.

I’ve heard great things about online sites like Brilliant Earth, but I would go with the diamond if those were my choices. More classic, likely to love it forever.
However, why not look at Brilliant Earth or Blue Nile, James Allen etc. to a diamond ring there? You’ll get a much better price and able to get a bigger ring for the same amount – Tiffany will have a huge brand name markup.

I’m very affected by the movie “Blood Diamond” and I know Brilliant Earth is known for their ethically mined stones. I would pick BE.

I’d go with the Ruby and diamond set. The Tiffany’s classic is nice but the Brilliant Earth set has more ‘personality’.

Tiffany for me. Just because that set is very close to the one I think I’m most likely going with. Tiffany setting and a half eternity band. Personally I like simplicity. I love originality too, and anything unusual. But I want my jewellery to match with anything and everything, and since I won’t be able to wear my rings at work I want to feel comforable with them when I do wear them.
All that said, the sapphire ring you posted is stunning, as it would be with a ruby.

Ruby. I’m a classic with a twist girl myself who loves color and I would go with the ruby. I understand the draw to the classic Tiffany though. I looked at them before I got engaged to.

Oh, get the ruby! The solitaire is nice, but wow, that other ring makes my jaw drop. I almost wish I hadn’t seen it, because now I’m jealous 🙂

Theyre both as ethical as one can get. I would take the Tiffany because the craftmanship will last a lifetime (more actually, many lifetimes) with zero maintainence and it will never be out of style . Im biased though, I have that ring and am obsessed with it.
The pave can lose stones, the ruby is softer (its a 9, and the scale is expotential so thats actually farther from a 10 than you’d think) … I’d save the ruby for a bad ass RHR. So both. lol.

I love the color too- but what I have is the Tiffany 10 stone engagement ring, with a sapphire and diamond half eternity band– so I still get my color– have you looked at any of the colored bands?
