I personally prefer the look of the first but the second is a stunning ring. 

Out of curiosity what’s your girlfriend’s job? Many Bees here have a 2nd, less blingy engagement ring because they use their hands a lot at work (doctors, nurses, lab techs, any job where you have to put on gloves on a daily basis). That might be something to consider. Is your girlfriend someone who likes to wear a little bit of bling? If so I’d go with the 2nd one.

I think they’re both really beautiful. Has she mentioned wanting a non-traditional stone? If not then I would stick to the diamond ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!

They’re both gorgeous, but it really depend on your gf. Does she like estate jewelry? Does she like nontraditional e-rings with a different stone? My personal preference is the first, but I’m a big fan of vintage jewelry. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!

I agree with OttawaBride, if she is more of a non traditional gal then the 2nd one is great but if not, stick with the diamond!

Good idea to come to a site with all of us crazy brides for advice!

Love the first one! The second one is beautiful too, but you can’t go wrong with a classic.

I love the design of the second ring.  I would swap out the aquamarine stone for a round brilliant cut diamond.

I love the first one, too! Really unique and very beautiful, although the second one is very beautiful, as well, I would go with the first one.

I prefer the second one, but I wouldn’t choose that unless she’s already indicated that she would like a non-diamond engagement ring. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck!

I love the first one! It’s beautiful. I’d make sure she’s okay with a non-traditional stone… my issue with them is that they don’t match everything since I wear a bunch of different colors all the time. But I’m weird like that, I guess.

I think I like the second one better. Just a head’s up .. has she vocalized a yellow gold preference? I wear gold jewelry but i didn’t want that for my engagement ring.

The first one is a pretty safe choice, but I definitely prefer the second.
