    I like option B alot. But I wouldnt want to have two of the same ring. So what I would do is, have one made with option B and have the other made with Option A. That way you will have one cushion shaped split shank double halo and one round shaped split shank double halo. I also like how Option A is all rose gold with one white gold halo. So maybe you could do Option A for the pink sapphire, and Option B for the yellow or vice versa ?

    Just make sure your jeweler has experience with pave. Otherwise stones in the halo may fall out. I got two sapphires and set them both in rose gold halos. They are different shades so it doesn’t bother me to have the same setting for both of them. I have other rings with different settings.

    I have a split shank on my tanzanite ring. I’ve never had a ring with a split before, I really love it! I think all the rings are pretty, just depends what you like the most!!!! Good luck!!!

    NEAM2014:  love A and C! I second MrsSparkleBee13 about preferring two slightly different settings.

    This is my e-ring. I included it because it’s a split shank.

    Yes, they are both pads, just different. There’s a range of colors. I like both the lighter and darker – so I got both lol.

    doberman:  Haha, I’d probably done that too if it were me! They are so beautiful! I’ve never seen pads in a lighter color – it reminds me a bit of the “peach champagne” colored sapphires, that a lot of Bees are sporting as e-rings these days. Lovely! 🙂

    SophBee:  yes, but there is also a dash of Orange in the mix which the champagne sapphires don’t have. I gave my champagne sapphire ring to my daughter, so I can’t post a good comparison. But there is a difference to the naked eye. Padparadscha color itself is a mixture of colors (Orange and pink) and not everyone agrees on grading. That’s why its a good idea to have it certified by a reputable lab.
