- Wedding: April 2018
Hello! I’m trying to decide on a few things for my engagement ring and wedding band and would love to see what everyone’s thoughts are. Any help would be super appreciated 🙂
So I know that I definitely want the ring in the picture and video below, which is a round moissanite solitaire. The two things I’m trying to decide on is carat (equivalent) size and the metals for both the engagement ring and wedding band. Also, I just want to apologize in advance for a very long post!
In terms of carat size, I would want either a 1.5ct or 2ct. The price difference is marginal so that’s not really a concern (one of the great things about moissanite!). I want something that won’t look too small but also won’t look too big or tacky either on a size ~5.25 finger. I was able to try on and take pictures of both of the sizes yesterday. In the picture below, the top ring is the 2ct and the bottom ring is a 1.5 ct. One thing to keep in mind is that the store didn’t have a 1.5 ct available so this is just the rock sitting on top of the setting, rather than in the setting so I’m thinking it may look larger than it would if it was actually in the setting.
Here’s a solo picture of the 1.5 ct:
and a solo shot of the 2 ct:
It would be great if you guys could help me out and take the poll and comment with any tips/advice!
Also, in terms of the metal, I’m thinking of going with a plain platinum band for the engagement ring and a super thin pave wedding band in either yellow or rose gold (leaning more towards yellow). I found this picture online of what i’m looking for but it’s hard to see the colors because of the shadow. I’m thinking the platinum will hold up better for the engagement ring, while it’s less of a concern on a pave because you can’t really see the scratches. Let me know if you have any thoughts on that please 🙂
Thank you so much for taking the time to read that and apologies again for how long this post is… hahaha
