The difference between #1(.80ct) and #2 (1/2ct) is that the 1/2ct one is a cluster of diamonds. So it’s not one whole diamond, it is a bunch of little ones mounted in the center of the halo. 

Also, there isn’t anything inside the whole diamond ring, it’s just the lighting…perhaps call and ask what the specs of the stone are? 

Good luck choosing!

What ^^she said about the differences, and as far as something being in the center of the stone: a) that’s a stock photo, b) the clarity is I1-I2–while I have an I1 center stone and love it, there are inclusions in it.

i have a ring from pompeii3  the first one was ordered through amazon i got it it was pretty but i was so disappointed because it was seriously flawed (visible carbon spotin center stone) i exchanged it for a better clarity (so i thought) i got it and had to send it back because the small stones around the halo were cloudy and when i took a pic of the ring i could see yellow stones sooo they replaced the stones and honestly speaking some of the stones are still cloudy i wish i had of returned the ringfor a refund because it is still flawed if you look at it a long time from the side you can see a black spot   im telling you this because while i love my ring if i had been thinking clearly i would have went to a different store if you decide to purchase this ring make sure you do any returns within your time period

i think the rings you chose are beautiful but you may want to look other places i have seen ladie with similar rings purchased through etsy and they have had nothing but good reviews  i hope this was helpful

@omg_itsT:  I think the first one is just the bottom of the setting showing through.

The second is a cluster, which is a bunch of smaller diamonds set togehter to look like one larger diamond. usually they are way cheaper but not as popular as solitaires.

Pompeii doesn’t have the best quality, but for the price, if he doesn’t want to get Moissanite, then Pompeii3 is pretty good for diamonds. However, I would recommend paying the extra $25 and having the appraisal from them.

@omg_itsT:   I just wanted to share my experience with Pompeii3. A few years ago, I had lost my engagement ring, we didn’t have much of a budget for a replacement, so i was pretty stoked when I stumbled across the Pompeii3 website. I ordered my ring from them they were fairly helpful, it shipped in a reasonable amount of time. When I got the ring, Ihad some issues with it and they were very, very uninterested in resolving my problem, they rarely returned emails, I finally gave up and kept the ring. 

I can’t really complain, the ring was not terribly expensive, but their customer service was lacking and the quality of the craftsmanship of my ring is sub par. The diamonds are very heavily included, so we are not talking about one little speck here or there, they are peppered and the diamonds in the halos and along the band are all over the place in regards to colour/clarity, some sparkle and some are so dull, you can’t even see them.
I recently considered buying a semi mount through them, and I found them to be once again rather unaccommodating and slow to respond to emails. 

My point here is to say that if you like the style and truly do not care about the clarity of the diamonds, then pompeii3 is a good option. I know that they were the only way I was going to get a diamond ring with good finger coverage back when I got mine, and I am someone who just cannot rock small solitaires (they make my hands look weird, other people can pull them off..just not me!) I just want you to be aware that they can be difficult to work with, and their rings look a lot nicer in the stock pics than they do in real life. 

For what it’s worth, I love the first ring you posted 🙂

I hope this long post makes sense, I feel like I may be rambling.. 

Here is my pompeii3 ring, to give you a bit of an idea, It’s really big to show a bit more in detail what I am talking about,.

I did not have good luck wsith Pompeii3. I ordered a wedding band from amazon from them and the stones were set SO poorly! Crooked, very cloudy (but it did list as average clarity.. it was just worse than I thought it would be), looked like it was missing diamonds. Immediately sent it back, and ordered from deBebians, who I am pretty happy with.

So… Is he opposed to moissanite? Because while I have a WILDLY expensive diamond, if you don’t care about having a diamond (while Fiance wants you to have one) that seems ike a GREAT middle ground!

You may want to shop around and look for a reputable retailer. Most of the online retailers have 60 days return policy so feel free to send back the ring if you are not happy with it. Make sure the ring comes with a cert. Good luck!
