Hello all! I’ve been a long time lurker but this is my very first post!
My boyfriend and I went e-ring shopping for the first time today. It was overwhelming but SO exciting as well. Thanks to my mom being longtime friends with a local jeweler here in Philadelphia, we got a fantastic deal and put down a deposit on a stunning .86 ct round brilliant diamond. But I needed a few days to think about the setting- because I fell in love with two!
The first: a very simple 4-prong, rose gold solitaire. I loved it because it is a classic shape and really focused all the attention on my center stone.
The second: a white gold halo (no micro pave on the sides, just a plain white gold shank). I tried this on at my boyfriend’s urging, because I thought I hated halos. Turns out- I don’t!
If anyone has a ring similar to either of the ones I tried on today and could post some pictures, I’d really appreciate it! What do you think: solitaire or halo? Rose gold or white? Thanks! 🙂
