So for our 5 year anniversary, we want to renew our vows. I know it is really soon into the marriage, but our dear son was diagnosed with a very rare and bleak genetic condition, and has very involved and life long special needs. We had him in our first year of marriage and after this really difficult journey, we both feel like it would be nice to recommit to life together now that we have a clearer picture of what our life will involve. (I know that is a lot of background information!) So originally I had my grandmas diamonds, and I had them set into the most simple setting possible some 6 or so years ago. It it just not really my personality and have since had a falling out with that side of our family for not accepting our son, so I don’t really feel comfortable continuing to wear those heirlooms. We have debated the idea of Moissanite, Diamond Hybrid/Simulants, or real diamonds and have come to the conclusion that if it is to replace my original wedding set, we would like it to be actual diamonds. I (think) I have narrowed it down to two rings, but I need help choosing. My BFF loves the big flashy one, but my sister thinks maybe it is too big and that you could see it from space. I am kinda leaning to the bigger emerald cut one, but would love any and all input! I am a stay at home mom so I don’t usually wear my wedding rings at home while caring for my son, but when I go out I tend to dress fairly on trend/hip. All images of the rings are on my own hand. I should also note that the larger emerald cut is shown without wedding bands, and the cushion/round has a wedding and anniversary band. Thanks!

It’s truly a matter of personal taste and since YOU will be wearing the ring(s), you should go with the one that makes you happiest! Regardless of what anyone says!
They are both stunning btw, and if I had to pick based on my preference, I like the one on the left!
But you do you girl! There’s no right or wrong answer here. Also, sending tons and tons of prayers to your son and your family <3.

Personally, I think they’re both too flashy. But that’s just my opinion. Go with what you love!!

The cushion cut looks lovely on your finger.

The halos look a bit shoddy somehow on the emerald, for that reason I think I prefer the cushion which also looks perfect as seen with your other bands, but the emerald looks great in terms of size on your finger too. I’m no stranger to flashy though.
