    I like the first but I feel the band looks too thin for the stone.

    I would choose the round solitaire.  Yes, it’s classic.  However, it’s a fairly uncommon choice right now since so many women are choosing blinged out rings.  Therefore, I think it will stand out.

    Arshim:  tough choice! I love the setting and the cut of the OEC, but that emerald cut is really stunning.

    Honestly, I think I’d go with the emerald. 2 carats will really show off the unique “hall of mirrors” look to the emerald cut. I’m not crazy about the OEC at that size for some reason.

    I voted for the emerald cut. I like the first ring, but I can see a ring that thin easily getting bent out of shape.

    The styles are very different — have you tried them on? I feel like if it were me, one would be bound to jump out at me more once I saw each of them on my hand.

    I agree with PPs about the band of the round looking too thin. Plain bands that thin tend to look a little cheap to me.

    I guess it depends on how classic you want the ring to be. The solitaire is the more classic and simple to me. I personally like the tapered baguettes on the second ring. That’s what I have on my ring, and I like that it’s simple but still distinct.

    I voted for the first ring! It’s beautiful and you can do any band with it!

    Arshim:  Definitely choice one but with a thicker band at least a 2.5mm band for me.

    Arshim: Both styles are classic, and one is not more classic than the other. Personally, I would go for the OEC for myself, as OEC is my favorite cut. But for you I’m thinking the Emerald cut, since you say you keep coming back to it–that’s your gut telling you which direction you want to go in.

    If we had been willing to pony up for a 2ct stone (we weren’t), I would go for that emerald in a heartbeat. No hesitation. Emerald is my favorite cut. But, you can’t go wrong with an OEC solitaire either. Both options are timeless and stunning.

    I go with the emerald cut, no question. An OEC isn’t big on sparkle, not in the way a MRB would be, so there will be a hint of the “glassy” effect with either stone. But a step cut in a size like that is stunning, and really showcases colour and clarity.
