    The bottom is more elegant than the rest. The double halo with such large center stones from the first two look a costumey

    @princessshay:  Those double halos look like cocktail rings to me.  Just IMO.

    I think the double halo ones look like Superbowl rings.

    I’m usually all for double halos (I have one) but those 2 don’t do a thing for me. Maybe it’s the lighting… or just the size? I’m not sure, but yes, they kind of do remind me of a Superbowl ring as a PP pointed out. I voted for the bottom ring – I really like the shank on the single halo.

    I vote for the bottom one. The reason I dont like the double halos in the first two are that they are not ‘tight’ halos. They look spread out like there is too much air space. Also – I notice you want the Cartier trinity ring. I think that is a beautiful band with lovely symbolism. I would strongly recommend that you buy a cheapo version of a rolling ring, and take it to the ring store to try on with these rings.

    Not sure if you plan to wear your rolling trinity band with your engagement ring or seperately, but I would be very suprised if the Cartier band looked good with any of these rings. Sorry to be blunt like that, but if you know for sure what band you want, best to try out potential rings with it before you make the big decision!

    If this is something you would consider, In the past I have bought rolling rings for <$20 at costume jewellery counters at big box stores.

    @princessshay:  If you can go a little bigger on the last one’s diamond, I would. I voted for the first ring but I would want less space between the ring and the halos. I don’t like the space there.

    I don’t think any of these rings will look good with a Cartier trinity ring, though. Just my opinion.

    @DarlingClementine:  When I read your comment at first I was like “well!” but then I looked at the photos again, and I agree.

    I love the 3rd one and I thing you shouldn’t go bigger in the center stone; that size is just perfect.

    I really don’t care for the first two. They look over the top. The third is better.

    All three are far far too big for your hands. And you’ve got nice hands.

    Sure there is plenty of bling but bling isn’t everything.

    Choose something that makes your hand look pretty.

    Years ago I bought my SIL an ultra fine gold chain for less than £25 and she received lots of compliments about it.  The truth was that the necklace was pretty but nothing special.  It simply showed off her beautiful slender neck. No one could compete but they just enjoyed the aesthetic pleasure of seeing something lovely.  

    You will of course get more appreciative comments if you buy a large ring but then wouldn’t you rather have something much more elegant?  

    Make the most of having nice hands.  Please.
