As I’ve mentioned in another post, I’ve been hard-pressed to find any rings that compare to the Tiffany Classic. However, I’m honestly torn now with the discovery of another setting.
Can you guys tell me what you honestly think of each (below)? I understand that personal taste varies, but which do you prefer, and what do you like most about it? (Other general thoughts are also totally welcome!)
Note: I’d probably want to make the prongs of the second one look a little smaller.
** EDIT: I should clarify: I am trying to decide on the style I prefer most, then my SO and I will get it custom made.

I have a Tiffany classic petite setting, and I love it. It’s something that I know I’ll never get sick of and it will never go out of style. I like the other setting because it resembles the Tiffany setting, but it falls short in my opinion.

@stagee: I think with Tiffany you tend to pay an awful lot for the name. It’s entirely up to you, but I’d prefer to get more bang for my buck.

honestly I think they look super similar and would only notice a difference if I was examing them really close up.
I have never understood the desire to spend a lot more on a tiffany setting when there are very similar settings for less money. I would take the money you save and get a nicer stone, but that is just my opinion.

I have the Tiffany inspired ring. I love it and it fits so well with any type or style of wedding band! Like the PP said it will never go out of style and it’s very classic and beautiful.

I think the second one is fine. If you pay a lot for the name, then you’re going to sacrifice size…

I would like to add that my ring is not from Tiffany’s. It’s actually from Moissaniteco.com:
If you’re looking at getting the ring from Tiffany’s, I’d say you should look for the same setting elsewhere unless money is not an object at all and the brand name is important to you.

So few people would know the difference and even if they did, its such a small difference that they would have to really examine it at close distance to notice. Go for the cheaper one.

Like MissBananaBread said… mine is also not from Tiffany’s it’s just inspired by the Tiffany classic and for my 1 ct diamond it cost $3000. I think getting the same style from another company could save you thousands. =)
What’s so nice about the Tiffany classic ‘style’ is that it sits high so the band can sit against the ering… this is mine.

I was like you in that i wanted a tiffany’s ring sooo bad! My fiance went there when he first started looking and after a lot of shopping I decided i would rather have a 1.5 carat than a tiffany’s ring. like everyone else said, more bang for your buck! The second one looks beautiful!

@agerard23: I agree with you. I’d do the same. Nothing at all against a Tiffany ring! Just what I personally would do, especially if looking to save money.

I think you pay for the name for a Tiffany’s ring. I love the other ring and think it is just as great, if not better! I think the setting is really pretty.

Thanks for all your helpful responses, everyone!
I should clarify: I am trying to decide on the style I prefer most, then my SO and I will get it custom made. I totally agree with getting more bang for your buck!
Do you guys like the look of the cathedral and basket of the second one?
I’m slightly concerned that I won’t like that so many people have the Tiffany classic style if I get it. – How do you guys with the Classic feel about seeing it around so much? (I suppose you could be totally fine with it, though, since it’s so beautiful so no wonder so many people love it.)

@stagee: I personally love the basket on the second ring better….it reminds me of a flower 🙂

@stagee: I don’t mind other people have my ring but like I said you can use any style wedding band out there so you could dress it up as much or little as you want totally changing the look of the ring. I almost got this band:
