    I think if it’s not a big deal to you I would go with the asha and save the money.  You seem like me… you can always upgrade later.

    I prefer the look of the asha ring over the quad.  It’s up to you if you would feel comfotable wearing a cubic zerconia ring.  If you would not sweat it, than go for that one.  

    I would really consider finding a diamond ring with a solid, singular center stone.  Maybe you should check out antique stores or pawn shops.

    I feel like my engagement ring could never be replaced or upgraded bc of sentimental reasons.  So if I were you, I would get what I really wanted now.  There will always be houses, cars, and kids to pay for in the future, so you may never be able to reason spending the money on yourself.

    I would get the asha over the quad 🙂

    They’re both beautiful, but I like the asha best.

    I personally cannot stand cluster rings. To me, that’s no less “fake” than CZ because you’re trying to fake the appearance of a larger stone. I’d save the money and go with the Asha, and upgrade later.

    Like others, I strongly dislike quad/cluster rings. I say go with the asha. Lots of women have them and love them!

    As someone who is wearing a gorgeous 1.5 ct cushion cut Asha right now, I say GO FOR THE ASHA!  You will not be disappointed!

    I actually prefer the asha cut.  I like your thinking and think its nice that you’re considering all the other financial obstacles you and FI are facing.  Like others mentioned above, you could always upgrade later.

    Only you can decide whether or not you’d feel comfortable wearing a sim for your wedding set, so if you’re OK with it then that’s the route I’d go.  Me personally, I’d rather have a real diamond or gemstone set…but that’s just me.

    Once you buy a house and start having kids, trust me, it will be a long time before you feel like you have the money to spend on yourself.  Houses and kids are so much more expensive than you can ever imagine!

    I love cushions and have a 1.5ct myself, so of course I love the look of the Asha you have picked out.  However, I voted for the Jared set because if it is important to your FI that he buy something with diamonds in the center then I would let him go that route.  Personally, I wanted to buy a “forever ring” because the idea of not wearing what he proposed to me with for the rest of my life made me a little sad.  If you don’t feel the same way, though, then I say go with the Asha and get the diamond later!

    I’d pick the Asha, or the same setting with a moissy.  I’m not a fan of quad settings, plus they’re prone to losing diamonds.  It’ll only be a matter of time before you’ll have to repair that thing.
