    @Mischka:  I would go with the ring you’re having made – the oval in halo. You said you fell in love with it.

    It’s pretty normal to have a ring stuck in your head, and then when you try it on it’s not the right fit (princess cut). The same thing happened to me w. round diamonds. It just didn’t feel right on my hand.

    The emerald cut came out of nowhere, right? I think that you will regret this choice because it lacks sparkle. You sound like a sparkle girl to me (I’m a sparkle girl too lol), and as lovely as emerald cuts are, I miss the sparkle. They ‘flash’ and are totally elegant and gorgeous, but I love sparkly thing so much that I think I’d regret having one.

    I actually like the plain oval you’ve posted for the band example the best.  🙂

    I love the last one. Probably because I have an asscher and just adore step cuts. The oval halo is beautiful as well.

    I’m not a fan of the solitaire princess cut. I love solitaires (I have one). I just don’t like princess cuts because they have pointy corners. I also feel like everyone has princess cuts (even though I know rounds are way more popular).

    You tried on a princess and thought it was common and not for you, so even though you always loved the idea, it’s probably not the right choice.

    I agree with throughthebarricades, you sound like a sparkle girl and will probably come to regret the choice of a step-cut stone. I understand thinking they’re gorgeous and falling in love on impulse, but is it really your favorite deep down inside?

    I think the ring you’re currently having made sounds like the best overall option. Seeing it in person will help solidify your decision.

    As for the solitaire vs. halo, you can always have your diamond reset into a solitaire if you get tired of the halo or want something more classic looking later on.

    I have a 3-stone emerald and I love it. I’m getting the band made thinner on mine, but it’s similar to the one in the picture. The only issue is you can’t have a wedding band sit flush against it, but I don’t mind the gap. You can also have a notch cut out or get a wedding band to curve around it. The first one is pretty, but so trendy right now.

    Oval! I am partial to oval though, and almost got one myself. But it sounds like that’s what you fell in love with, and I think once you stop looking at other rings, you’ll realize the oval is exactly what you want.

    I always thought I wanted a round or oval. I hated boxy cuts. Then I tried on a cushion and knew that was exactly what I wanted. I hated the round!

    After ordering my ring (cushion cut) I kept looking at others out of habit, and suddenly had the “Omg, what about THIS one? Maybe I would really love this one more!” As soon as I quite looking at others, I remembered how much the ring I first chose suits me so well and how much I love it.

    So go with the oval. You say you love it, you know you love it, and you’re not sure on the others.

    I also love the plain oval best, but it’s your ring, choose the one that makes your heart sing!

    You love all three rings so I say stick with the one you are having made because as soon as he proposes to you and you get it on your it will be your ring and you will love it that much more.  I was so in love with clusters and fell in love with one in particular but Fiance proposed with a different design and I love this one even more because it is mine and it is beautiful.  If in a few years you still can’t get a ring out of your head maybe get it as right hand ring.

    First of all congrats girl on your engagement and welcome to the hive!

    Your oval will be stunning and once you try that beauty on you will adore it. I wish I had an oval too, or an asscher, or an emerald or a round halo or lolololol see I am just like you.

    Put your hands in the air… DO NOT MAKE ANY SUDDEN MOVES… and Back Away Slowly from the Jewellery counter

    😉 *wink*

    Lol, cute post

    You obviously are on “sparkle overload”… like a kid in a candy store / ice cream shoppe, you are being dazzled by all that you see… and clearly if you don’t step away… you’ll find yourself on the road to a tummy ache / brain freeze (major headache of indecision on your part… and a diamond induced coma for your Fiance… sounds like he is indeed a wonderful and patient man… my Fiance was too… it took me 6 solid weeks of looking before I finally made my choice… so I truly GET how there is sooo much to pick from and choosing can be overwhelming)

    Like you, I LOVE Jewellery… especially Daimonds.

    YES they are all very very pretty.  BUT in the end, unless you are the Queen of England, and have access to the Royal Jewels (wouldn’t that be nice) you are only going to get to wear so many in your lifetime.

    I think you should go with the Oval that you currently have being set.  Not only is is a GORGEOUS Ring… I clearly have a feeling here you are a “Glitter Gal”… and of the rings you’ve shown us it is by far has the most stunning of settings… also you name dropped the Harry Winston bit (lol, ala “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” or, Elizabeth Taylor = the Taylor-Burton Diamond)… so I am pretty sure I have you pegged as a true Diamond Lover.

    I don’t have anything nearly as big myself (feature diamond) … but I certainly LOVE my sparkle… my E-Ring & W-Band set weighing in at close to 2.5 CTW

    Hope this helps,

    PS… CONGRATUALTIONS on your Engagement.

    @Mischka:  i love all rings too and it is hard to pick just one.  stick with the oval (i have an oval too) and maybe get a princess cut gemstone for your rhr.  that’s what i did.

    I would go with what you already have in the works (micropave oval) for a number of reasons.

    1) I love micropave, and you seem to love it too! It looks like a beautiful ring!

    2) It is already being made, and you’d take a HUGE hit if you sold it.

    3) You loved it enough to set the project in motion instead of the buying the princess; I think you’re just getting cold feet.

    4) Nothing is stopping your Fiance from getting you those other rings for anniversaries.

    5) If you asked for all of the rings now, it probably wouldn’t cast a very nice light on you.

    I really like the oval halo. It’s just a little different 🙂
