    I’m biased because the second ring looks exactly like mine but I’ve read you’re not supposed to put step cut diamonds in halos.

    Good choices! I really like both asscher and emereld cut. Step cuts are kind of “classy” I think… although its such an arbitrary thing I don’t know why I think that haha. I voted for the Asscher on a pave band though, although i also like the channel band one too. Not as big a fan of the halos but its personal preference. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I voted for the asscher cut with pave band.  I agree that halos ar too popular for my taste and that ring is stunning.

    @Kings7911: Don’t remember exactly why, I’ll have to see if I can find where I read that. Might have something to do with the fact that step cuts dont sparkle as much so you need as much light to be able to pass through the sides as possible.

    I love the first one, for the following reasons:

    1) It’s unique

    2) the beautiful symmetry of it being made entirely of step cuts

    3) the channel set band would be the most comfortable

    4) I love step cuts, and love channel set bands.  lol.

    Asscher with channel band. I am drooling!

    Nix to the step cuts in halos. Not loving the look. Ruins the clean crisp sleekness of the stones cut.

    I love that asscher with the pave band. I think with cuts such as emerald or asscher, solitare settings are best because it shows off the beauty of the stone without taking away from it with a halo. What about An asscher or emerald with a split shank pave with no halo? If you are going to get one of those stones, show it off! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know everyone is hating on emerald cuts with halos here but it’s what I have and I love it.  The emerald diamond actually sits above my halo so enough light passes through. Also,   

    Also, when I picked it out it appealed to me that not many people had step-cuts with halo settings. All that being said, I really like your first option!
