    I voted for #2, but mainly because halos are not my style.

    I’m sure you’ll end up loving whichever one you pick!

    I love number two, because it is much more timeless. Nothing against haloes— I love rings of any shape and size, but that first one is a bit over the top and “faux” looking.

    @Diamond84:  @mrskopp2be, I wasn’t sure who you were referring to in the other thread but when I went and saw the ring she posted, I remembered that that ring stood out to me when I had first seen it. I think it’s very pretty and matches what I think I’m not looking for. So is the ring that you posted. Those aren’t channel set diamonds on the side, are they? I like how the side diamonds look. In the pic it looks like a mix of both pave and channel setting. Have you seen the ring that belongs to Ashley83 on here? I saw it in threads and seeing her ring is what made me change my mind about not getting a halo. It’s a beautiful cushion cut ring on a thin pave band. Just looks so elegant. She took a picture of it when she was up in some sky-rise building if it helps trigger it.

    No, I haven’t seen Ashley83’s ring.  The ring that I posted is not channel set.  It’s technically a pave or an eternity setting (which is what I refer to it is).  The one you’re modeling here (the non-halo one) is a pave, but it’s a 3-row micropave.  This is actual separate stones that are in their own 4-prong settings in the band.  You can make the stones as big or small as you like, making them as thin as you please.  I had a feeling that we had very similar tastes and were looking for a similar ring. 

    Maybe you’re looking for something like this, if youre going to do halo (it looks a little “dantier” than the one you’re modeling above:

    I prefer the halo because I’m a sucker for halos, and I like the knuckle coverage/dainty-ness of it! But they both look great on you!!!

    Ring number one is very pretty, but it looks more like a cocktail ring to me.  I like the look of the solitaire better personally and I think it looks better on your finger, but I’m not a fan of that ring in particular.  The band is a little too thick in my opinion.  I think your diamond would stand out more and it would look better if the band was a little thinner 🙂

    My ring is similar to the first one, but no miligrain and it’s set higher so I have an eternity band that can fit right up against it (no gap).  I love it!  It doesn’t look like a cocktail ring and people literally stop me in the middle of the street/store to tell me how pretty it is.  So if you want an attention grabber, go for #1!  Otherwise, the solitaire is always very classic and you really can’t go wrong either.

    @Diamond84:  Another non-halo fan here. If prefer ring 2 for you since you don’t want a curved band. I don’t like them either and that’s a big deal breaker for me. But in the end you need to choose the one you love the most.

    @Diamond84:  I like them both the one you posted and the second, but I would agree the one in the link would be less maintanence. 

    Fiance wears a ring like that it has teeny tiny diamonds that are set like that (in sterling silver) and he has had no issues.

    @Diamond84:  Omg, ring #1 is absolutely beautiful. I love it.

    Ring #2 it also very pretty but #1 is WOW.

    Edit – oops replied too late I guess 😉

    LOVE THE FIRST ONE, due to my personal love of HALOS! But I have to say the second one looks amazing on your hand as well!!!!

    I Love the second ring. I personally don’t care for Halos as they take away from the beauty of the center stone ; especially when it’s a bigger stone.  I think there is a point when a halo actually takes away from the center stone instead of enhancing it.

    Never been a fan of round brilliant cut diamonds in settings that are made for Cushion Cut.
