    Are these your only 2 options? I’d (personally) prefer either the first ring in a single halo, or the emerald cut in a thinner band, but that’s just me!

    Emerald cut ring with thinner prongs ( I can see the stone is just sitting in the setting now, veeery pretty stone too).

    Could you get the emerald with a thinner band? Would you like it with a thinner band? I think that the band competes with the emerald, but I like the emrald more than the double halo style.

    I like the halo! Although perhaps I’m just struggling to visualise the other one as it isn’t set yet xo

    I voted for the first because the second is a band that’s too wide for me, personally. I think a thinner band would flatter the emerald more.

    Could you do a double halo with a thin, pave band? That way you can stack to your heart’s content.

    I have fallen in love with an emerald cut so I voted emerald however I agree that a thinner band would complement the stone so much better. A single halo with the emerald cut is beautiful too. It doesn’t take away from the center stone and would give you the finger coverage AND looks lovely with the stacked look.

    You said the second one was more your personality, which says it all for me. Your ring should be a reflection of who you are. I do agree that emeralds show inclusions much more readily, but I do think the way its set down in the band will help with that. Have you considered setting it with a rectangular radiant cut instead? A radiant also might hold it’s own against the band better.

    Just an example of a radiant:
