I have searched these boards for the last few weeks trying to decide what I wanted in a ring and I am 90% sure we are going with something I did NOT expect to want! It’s crazy how when you see something on your finger it really has a different impression than on the internet. This is the ring I want but with a PEAR diamond, around 1.50 for the center stone (image from Lauren B Jewellers but likely not getting it there):
Question- does anyone here have a two-tone ring like this? What are you thoughts? Do you think it’s classic enough or do you wish you did one color? The reason why I am leaning toward two-tone is because I heard doing a halo in a colored metal can make the stone look less white from several jewellers. Does anyone have this ring from Lauren B specifically that can comment on it?

I would prefer it if it were all white gold or all rose gold to be honest. However, I’m a huge fan of mixing metals by having your band be a different color. Can you get the e-ring in all white gold and get your wedding band in rose gold? That’s what I did and I adore it and get compliments all the time.

My original ring is two toned and I love it. I went with a white gold band that has cognac diamonds in it.

I dont have a halo, but my setting is rose gold on the band, and white gold for the basket. I absolutely love it!!!
I think it is still pretty classic, but a little bit unique and it is not super obvious at first glance that the metals are different (although itwill be slighly more obvious becuase of your halo).

That is a good idea that I didn’t even think of!

I’m also a huge fan of mixing metals! 👍But keeping the ring all white gold would allow you to choose over the years if you want to mix or not.

I would rather keep it white gold and then add a rose gold band, for some reason I think the LB ring looks trendy.

My morganite is set in a rose gold head on a white gold with pave diamond band. I love the mix of metals.

I personally love two tone, but I’m biased. My set is actually three toned with my stacking band and has three diamond colours (white, pink and yellow). I like colour and I think the different tones will make your set unique.

I don’t love it. I liked mixed metals and I mix different metal rings in a stack but not in the same ring. i have a yellow gold halo and I don’t think it makes my diamond look any less white.

Agreed with poster above. Mixing metals when it comes to a stack, love it! But all in the same ring, not my personal preference. But then again, it is your ring not mine! Do what you love 🙂

If two-tone is classic enough for Tiffany’s, do you really have to ask if it’s classic enough? 😉
Don’t worry about what someone else might think, and get what you want. You’re right that the reason that this style of two-tone ring exists (where the head is in a white metal and the band is in a different colored metal) is because being surrounded by the white metal makes the diamonds look whiter.

If you’re unsure about a two-tone ring, but like the look of mixed metals, do different metals for your engagement ring and wedding band like PP said. Here’s what I’m doing:

My ring is two tone, white gold around the diamonds and a yellow gold band to match my wedding band.
If you love the ring, go for it!
