    These are very different rings! I think it’s hard for someone to judge them objectively because a person tends to either like one style or the other. Personally I am not into really big blingy jewelry, so I am put off by the second one, but someone who is into that style could really rock it. It will be hard for us to tell you which one to go with. Maybe a simple clean ring for your e-ring and then you could ask for the blingy one for a future anniversary present for your right hand?

    I love bling, but I voted for the first one. Yu can always step up the second one with a great enhancer as your wedding band.

    I voted for #1 but I think that its really a matter of preference. For what it is worth, this is why I like the first better: 

    1- I feel that halo style often takes away from the diamond it is surrounding

    2- I think that the halo style can make the center diamond look smaller (i know a lot of people say the exact opposite so its really a matter of opinion… but i guess i assume if something is halo it is TRYING to look bigger than it is so i feel like its smaller)

    3- i think #1 is just more classic. thats a ring that is still going to be in style in 40 years.

    What about #1 with 2 contoured skinny diamond bands? You can get a little extra bling but still hold onto the 3 main stones of the first e-ring?

    I dunno, i like them both…leaning towards #2 b/c i like more flair in general and shy away from classic styles personally.

    Normally I live by the motto “the more bling the better.” However, I am leaning more towards the first one because I think it shows off the stones better and it actually looks more “blingy” to me. The second one has so many stones and so much metal that I think it loses some of that bling factor and everything gets lost.

    Are you getting diamonds or moissanite? You would get a TON of fire from #2 if it was set with moiss! (This is what I mean by fire; the rainbow flashes on that big moissanite ring)

    Personally, I dislike the look of plain white metal, it seems very cold and industrial, so my preference would be #2.

    I have an enegagement ring similiar to the first one and for the bling effect, I picked a beautiful band. While the second ring is beautiful, those diamonds can be extremely hard to clean.
