    I love both!!!

    I feel that “A” matches your current ring more but “B” is a great RHR/Stand in band for your left hand, and if you were wearing your Current ring, that option “B” wouldn’t “upstage” at all, I can see where “A” would compete if you were wearing one on your left hand and one on your right hand

    With a budget of 5k I would use lab sapphires and get both 😂😂😂 

    But if you have to get just one, I voted for B. I LOVE that ring.

    I will not be any help then… I have 6 sets/standalone bands that I wear and I’m still like “hmm… I think I should design a 3 stone ring… oh, and I need a 5 stone band too!”

    So I have the set that I got when we got married, which is the one that he and I designed together. Then I inherited a bunch of rings from my grandma, then I inherited MORE from the lady who raised me, so I took all those and turned them into one giant gypsy set band that I wear alone and one bezel set solitaire that I pair with my grandma and great grandmas plain gold bands. Then I have a set that is raw sapphires, so it wasn’t very expensive but it’s super cool and organic looking, and a Hopi inlay sterling silver band that I wear alone too. 

    Now all I need is a big, blingy 3 stone and a blue sapphire 5 stone and I will be all set. For like a month, until I think of something else 🤣

    @bluecutie00:  

    I love the way things vary by country – I’ve never seen a ring like Ring A but I’ve seen LOADS that look like Ring B, so I was just about to say Ring A is more unusual when I saw your comment!

    I’d pick Ring A because if you want to wear it as a RHR at the same time as your e ring, they go well together, but Ring A is still not so blingy that it will overwhelm your e ring.  (And from my point of view, I’d also vote A for being more unusual, but obviously that’s not the case where you are!)

    Well, my first thought was, “Wow! Not my usual style but it’s so pretty!” And then I scrolled to option B and the prongs really drew me in. Option B is so unique, and beyond anything I could have ever dreamed up. It’s amazing! 

    So, both are wonderful options, but B really stands out to me.

    @bluecutie00:  I mentioned my jeweler on your other thread which is in the same area as David. They do very similar work. I did a custom sapphire ring with him that had a lot of antique detailing ([email protected]).  I think from your bands, you are going to get very different looks. The halo ring is going to have a lot more glittery sparkle. The sapphire band with the stepcuts is not going to light up the same way.  It is modern and elegant but it is not going be glitter-y compared to the one with the halo’s. 

    I am going to vote for band B because the halo one is a little too ‘matchy’ for my taste. I think the point of having something like this is to go for a different look or right hand ring. Your e-ring already has 3 bands so the halo band with your ring would be a LOT.

    @bluecutie00:  Baguettes don’t have a lot of sparkle. If they are small (Emerald) stepcuts, you will see some but it is like very looking at small pools of water. You will not get the same sparkle as the halo.
