Though choice but I think the first ring with the baguettes is prettier! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is just me but I prefer bigger centers with the side stones ..I really love the classic look of the solitaire on your hand.

I actually have both styles. Just be aware that finding a wedding ring for the baguette one will limit your options (@uk-bee had the same problem finding a wedding band).

Although I prefer the look of the baguette one on its own, hands down I like my solitaire with a wedding band more.

I love the simplicity of the solitaire as an engagement ring.

I have a solitaire that my HD picked and I love, but the tapered baguettes are probably what I would choose for myself, that ring is so pretty!

On you, I like them both.

I have tapered baguettes in two rings and I love the look, so classic. But, it is terribly difficult to find a band for my e-ring. Mine is an oval, though, which makes it even harder whereas with a round you have more options. You can even do a plain band and it will look classic.

I have both. My original was a pear with baguette sidestones. I had to custom make a band. I re-set my pear into a thin pave solitaire. I prefer the solitaire both both were beautiful. The solitaire is easier and you have options with bands. And can stack.
