The second one is much more beautiful in my opinion.

@gsdlover32:  Have you looked into online stores…you might be able to come to a very happy compromise with ‘ye olde budget’

Also look into estate jewelry..my best friend repurposed a beautiful diamond from an ugly  70’s setting she got online. She scrapped the gold and bought a really well made semi mount from lord of the gems.

Amazing ring and it came in under $1200 for a G-H/SI1 0.68ct diamond with 0.25ct G/H SI setting!

Technically it might not be the best ‘cut diamond’ (as it wasn’t too expensive) but it sure looks pretty sparkly IRL!

 

Having said all that…. if the second ring is what you love you should get it…nothing worse than having to look down for 50yrs wishing and dreaming!

The solitaire is gorgeous.  I’d go for that one.

@gsdlover32:  My biggest question is, if you get the first ring will you ever stop thinking about the second ring? For me personally, I can never forget what I really wanted. I won’t get over it. Some people can let things like that go. For that reason I never went looking for expensive rings, lol. Like they say on “Say Yes to the Dress” never try on a dress you can’t afford. Same deal with rings.

@allyfally:  that ring has a clarity enhanced diamond….that is why it is so much cheaper than the one the OP loved.  Laughing

I’m all for saving money when it comes to wedding costs, however,  I think your e-ring and wedding bands are not areas you should cheap out on.

While both rings are pretty, I would go with the second one, and I’m usually not a solitaire gal. $300 over budget is not that big a deal over the long run, and that’s money I would much rather spend on a ring than say, favors for the reception.

@gsdlover32:  $300 over budget is nothing compared to a ring that you will love forever. I bet your Fiance will agree and be more than happy to pay a teeny bit more to get you that gorgeous ring. Don’t feel guilty!
