    I think this is one of the last decisions that you should feel the need to accept something you only “like”.

    This is a symbol that will be with you your whole life.

    Wait it out for something you love, or accept the fact that you will regret it!

    If you’ve reached a point of not being able to decide, maybe you could let your SO pick between them and surprise you?  Thats what I ended up doing (I was very very lost… got way overwhelmed) and I <3 my ring that he chose

    I think both rings are beautiful choices, you don’t seem to be that excited about either though, from the title of your post. If you don’t love them, then I would keep looking. I think you will be able to find a style that fits within your budget that you love. There are many jewelers out there who don’t cost a crazy amount for designed rings, keep looking, you should find a ring you love, as you will be wearing it for a long time (hopefully)!

    Gosh, I like simple rings and I love both of your rings! Also the price you listed was wow..

    I like the one on the left because it is like you said easier to transition over time.  The one on the right is amazing and I love the square design in the middle.  I didn’t even notice the hearts until I read you point them out. Another nice feature.

    May I ask? Where did you find these rings? I’m searching for rings at the moment too  🙂

     

    Good Luck

    i like the one on the left. i bet you have seen tons and tons of rings and if you haven’t found one you like by now, and narrowed it down to these 2 choices – i would go with one of these or let your so pick between them.

    I love the vintage style (but I am biased as it looks similar to mine only princess cut) I get sooooo many compliments on her because she is so unique! What type of gemstone did you get that could change everyones opinion

    I am not sure why you do not think designing your own would be an option in your budget. If you are looking at just the setting (you say you have a stone), white gold should be in your budget. While I did not exactly design my own, we told the jeweler what we were looking for and he pulled out 3 large catalogues and showed us some settings he could order that had the elements we were looking for. He said he could design one like the one in the cataloguies or just order it and tweek for minor changes without a major price difference. Ultimately, I like to see a final product so we went with the one in the catalogue and he fit it to my diamond.I believe the estimate was just under $800 for the white gold setting with a halo and side diamonds.

    I voted for keep looking, but if choosing between those two I would go for the one on the right. It is more unique, and much prettier imo, and looks more wearable. But I second what slicey19 said; custom doesn’t have to be super expensive.

    I like the left one much more. I’m not a huge fan of excessively large halos, which (to me) the ring on the right has.
