    They are both great options but I think the first one is the best.

    Love the first one. With a cushion stone?…wow. Love all the stones in the band and how dainty the setting is. Love that you can go with a larger center-stone, that it’s a classic look. 

    I initially was also attracted to a ring similar to your #2. I kept my search going and ended up with something pretty different, haha! I do appreciate the art-deco vintage look of the bezel-set with filigree details. 

    For fun, here’s the ring I first fell in love with. SO similar to your #2, but from the “Antique Jewelery Mall” website.

    And here’s the curved wedding band, which I loved!!

    And here’s my actual engagement ring. Still a vintage design but more modern at the same time. Way larger too.

    @JazzyGemini:  Thank you!! What I loved most about the art-deco ring is how the wedding band fit with it. Curved but still allowing for space between the two. I’m actually having a custom-made band fit my flower ring in a similar way! 

    Here’s the website for more inspiration if you like. You’ll love that website!!

    The two are so so so different from each other!!  I would HIGHLY recommend going to a regular jewelry store and trying on rings that actually look/resemble these two rings to get an idea of what you actually like ON your hand.  I’m very picky about rings, and sometimes what I loved online (or on other bees) just didn’t look right on me!

     

    But for what it is worth, I love the antique-y style one, but I know from experience that finding a wedding band to “match” or “fit” it will be hard.  you will either need to go with a curved band or have a gap between your e-ring and your wedding ring.

    The first one!  But perhaps I’m biased…

    @JazzyGemini:  My ring size is 7.5 and the center stone is a .6 carat D color diamond.  One difference I see between the pic you posted and mine is that mine doesn’t have the cathedral setting like in the pic, it is just a basic solitaire. 

    I love this style because it looks like the whole ring is made of diamonds!  We went band shopping last week and the matching band looked amazing with it… so much sparkle!
