Hello to you all, I’m a complete newbie here. I am trying to decide on a ring and am considering the one in the photo, or, as a different option, one with a pear-shaped diamond & halo. The one in the photo has a 1.55 carat elongated cushion fancy yellow center diamond (2.65 ctw), and the photo does not do it justice at all to show sparkly it is. (My fiancee loves colored diamonds.) Because this particular seller is willing to give such a good price on the ring in the photo, if I went with option B instead, and got a pear-shape diamond ring, it would be smaller, probably a half carat less in size. What do you all think of the fancy yellow diamond ring? Or, do you like a (little smaller) pear-shaped white diamond ring? I am having a hard time deciding! I read something about how a pear shape elongates the finger, therefore it’s a flattering style, etc., so I’m torn. Thanks so much to anyone who responds.

I like the proportions of the ring you posted. I have a hard time picturing it with a pear. Plus, I’m not a huge fan of the pointy end of a pear; I prefer symmetrical shapes. It looks very pretty on you and if your boyfriend likes it, it may be the winner!

I’m personally not a fan of yellow diamonds but I know a lot of people are. If it were me I would definitely go with the smaller white pear. I love dainty rings so the smaller size would be preferable to me.
Do you have a picture of what the pear would look like? Would it be the same ring with the side stones just a different center stone?

josie77 : This ring looks gorgeous on you! I prefer this shape over the pear shape but it really does come down to personal preference. Congrats 🙂

I love pears but the ring you posted looks absolutely perfect on your hand. It’s well proportioned, unique and absolutely gorgeous! I’d go for the yellow diamond hands down bee!!

Thank you. 🙂 For those of you who are trying to picture the other ring, I was thinking something like the one in this photo. (I found it online, so that is not my lovely hand in the pic.) This one has pink diamonds for the halo.

I’m always concerned about any rings that can potentially catch on my clothing, so for me, pears and marquises are out, but even at that I LOVE 😍 the yellow diamond. I’m very much into unique looks, and I think that ring is quite spectacular.
ENJOY whatever you decide!!

The yellow diamond for sure! I personally feels that the yellow diamond ring has more significance and meaning to it since your fiance loves coloured diamonds. It also has a gorgeous uniqueness to it if you want it stand out from the norm and the crowd. It’s breath-taking and it looks really beautiful on your finger!! First option with the yellow diamond for sure! <3

josie77 : loving the pear. But I’d probably choose the one your fiance picked, that’s what I did

Pear girl here so that’s my choice!

The pear is more simple and classic, yet beautiful. I would choose the pear. For me the yellow ring has too much going on.

Definitely go for the pear. It’s more classical, but it also have a pop of colour that you said your partner likes. I also think that the first option overwhelms your finger a lot.

That yellow diamond is beautiful. I do think it’s very much about personal choice, though, because that ring (and style) looks like it would be larger and more attention grabbing than I would prefer to wear on a daily basis (especially if a wedding band needed to be added as well). The pear is beautiful, so I’d likely go with that one if it’s between those two.
