    I wonder which OP got?  It’s funny a few people said setting and upgrade later.  Upgrading a diamond is MUCH more expensive than upgrading a setting.

    Personally I love both but I am a sucker for a nice solitiaire. I would most likely have gone with the second option, bigger diamond with a beautiful classic setting. I hope you went with which setting made you happy though!

    Gabrielle91:  I like #2 for the prongs and two tone setting. So that’s why I would choose it. 🙂 Go with what makes you happiest though!

    Your ring is absolutely gorgeous! I think I saw it on a thread last night and just admired it or a minute or two. Such a beautiful blend of classic and romantic with a fun whimsical, personal twist. Lovely! Congratulations!’ 💜

    Even if you go for the smaller option, I think that you’ll find with the way the first setting wraps around the ring, the diamond will seem just as big as the 4 prong set bigger diamond. It’s like why bezel set diamonds look bigger than the same carat 4 prong

    I really like the fancy setting but a bigger stone will feel better …too bad u can’t do both.. Btw jewlery stores always trade up so later it can always be upgraded if u dont like maybe u could return in 30 days n switch too.
