Hard to tell without specs. I like the largest, not just because of its size, but because it looks cleaner.

Personally, I would take the ring with biggest stone and not change a thing about it! It looks to be about 2.5 cts or even larger.

Normally, in our family, the oldest child got first pick.  So, I would definitely go for the big stone.  It’s beautiful!

I would go for the center ring and keep the same setting. It’s gorgeous!

I would take the large round ring. You wouldn’t have to change it and it’s very classic.

I like them all!  Maybe take the larger one if you don’t plan on changing it.  Take a different one if you plan on putting it in a new setting.

megmack:  The center one is beautiful!  I wouldn’t even change the setting!  And who knows, the other siblings may want to design a ring out of more than one of those diamonds….or not want a diamond at all…or not ever get married.  Pick the one you love the most. : )

You take whatever diamond you want! If his mother didn’t want you to have it, she wouldn’t have included it in the photo.

I don’t think you need to be practical. You’re first! Take the middle, but I actually like the current setting so personally I would just size it.

I’m not a big ring person but the big one looks like a really nice quality diamond and the setting is just…so so pretty.  That’s probably the one I’d choose.

I agree with marriedalready69. She wouldn’t have included the big one if she didn’t want you to have it. and she may be holding others back for the other siblings. You don’t know. I would choose whatever is your favorite! Personally I like the big one and the marquis!

I would take the middle one. No need to reset it – it’s gorgeous!
