We’re already getting my e-ring made but I can’t help but look at other rings and have found another one that I can’t stop thinking about.
We’re currently getting the wax for a custom Tiffany Classic made (I love how clean it is and that it’s got a beautiful, elegant presence), but I’m also kind of pining after a wonderful Kwiat ring with amazing antique details.
See links (and real pics of the Classic) below and let me know which one you like better (and why)? (I’d be using my 1 ct round moissanite stone.)

Stick with the Tiffany Classic!
I can see why you’d like the Kwiat, it’s gorgeous! But my thought is that if you like the antique details on the Kwiat, you can always choose a wedding band with some antique details to go with the Tiffany Classic. I still think that your original decision is the right one 🙂

The Kwiat’s beautiful, but I prefer the Tiffany. It’s a timeless ring. It’ll be easier to maintain. Plus, you can style it pretty much any band you want. I like @Great Gatsby ‘s suggestion.

IMO, you can always purchase/wear another ring/necklace/earrings with more antique elements. The Tiffany model is so clean and classic that it goes with everything 🙂

Thank you all for your input 😀
Those of you who said the Classic – I agree that it’s timeless and I can definitely choose a more “antique” or ornate wedding band (or anniversary band later) if I like.
To those of you who prefered the Kwiat, what is it that you like better about it than the Classic?
I’m still preferring the cleaner Tiffany setting, but I do love the antique look of the Kwiat…
Another issue is the side stones and the stones around the basket – I’d be afraid of them falling out… Maybe that’s a big enough reason to not go with it, unless I can modify it (custom) to not have those stones…
ETA: I may go for a pave wedding band if I get the Classic, but if a stone falls out of that I can temporarily rotate it, whereas a missing stone in the e-ring would be more difficult to hide until I can get the stone replaced.

I thought I wanted classic, but within a few months I was bored by it and switched out for something more exciting. So I’m biased. I guess I’d rather deal with a little bit more ring maintenance and have something I really like. If you’re a clean and classic person, by all means go with the Tiffany though.
To me the Kwiat is interesting and unique, has a personality and a presence. The Tiffany is a little more generic. Again, neither of those are bad things, it just depends on what you’re looking for in a ring, but that’s my take.

You might want to add a poll. I love both rings, but I’d prefer the Kwiat due to the side stones and antique detail.

@Mrs. Fireworks: I tried but it looks like it’s been too long since I created the post to insert a poll…?
@moonadea: Thank you for your reasoning – I totally understand where you’re coming from – definitely things to consider.
ETA: Nevermind – figured out how to add a poll 🙂

@lumos: I think it also depends on the size of the center stone. I think if the stone is a little bit bigger, definitely get the tiffany setting because it will really show case the diamond! 🙂

I like the Kwiat. I like the bridge/ basket/ reinforcement around the stone. I prefer stones that are set like that so that the diamond is not just sticking up so high on its own. I would poke an eye out.

Your ring sounds like it will be stunning and classic, my advice.. try not to look anymore into engagement rings, otherwise you will be questioning your decision all the time!
Besides, these rings may look beautiful on photos, but may not be the “one” for you when you try them on 🙂
