    Normally I’m all about the size stones, but I don’t particularly love the design of ring one so I went with knife edge. Make sure you try one on though because I found my knife edge highly uncomfortable because it dug into my pinky and middle fingers, especially when holding hands with husband.

    @amssuriah:  

    Get what you love. Re ring, however, if you go with it be sure you love it enough to still like it if it falls into the “dated” collection of ring styles. That is actually a retro eighties design that’s trending again while other eighties styles are en vogue. That design was as ubiquitous in the eighties as cushion halos are now. The current re-visit of the trend might go out as quickly as it came in. I don’t usually care about fashion trends. I wore all yellow gold when yellow gold was “dated.” But make sure you’re ok with fashion nuts sniffing and saying, “it looks dated” in case the retro look falls into fashion disfavor in a couple years. I can’t believe how many rude comments I’ve heard in real life about wedding sets. Make sure that whatever style you pick is something YOU love regardless of what other people think or what’s popular. That way if people sniff and say “why’d you go with that style?” You can look right back at their rude faces and say, “because I like it.”

    @amssuriah:  I personally dislike the first one, it looks very 80s to me and I hate the prongs jutting up from the bypass, so I voted solitaire. However those options are super different so I wonder if you’ll be disappointed by a solitaire? Here are some other options which have elements of the first ring in a more integrated style, all from moissaniteco:

    Classic solitaire. More timeless and versatile and doesn’t need a curved wedding band. Focus is on the center stone. Can be worn with anything.

    I’m not a fan of the first option, but I’m also not wearing it 😉 I would try on a knife edge because as someone else mentioned, they can be uncomfortable to wear.  A classic solitaire does allow for more wedding band options so personally, I would chose that type of setting.  Good luck and congratulations ❤️

    @amssuriah:  I typically vote for extra sparkle but I’m not a fan of the first ring for some reason. It looks off to me. The second option is stunning in its simplicity.

    If you like the bypass design, moissanite co has several. I’m partial to them because I have one myself. I think it would look great with a chevron band. I also feel knife edge rings are not comfortable

    I personally would go for the solitaire, but based on your update, I would advise you to go with the more complex design that reminds you of your original set.  I think you’re leaning more toward that one, and I think it would make you happier.  🙂

    I voted the bypass. Awhile back (like 5 years ago) I got a new ring… and i have always loved halos and the intricate design of rings with side stones but I had read so many negitive comments about halos beign trendy and how they were *tacky* and I ended up getting a 1 carat solitaire becuase i felt it would be more timeless. Needless to say about a month after buying the solitaire I had major regrets. Everytime I looked at it I got an ache in the pit of my stomach. I knew I had made the wrong decision. So when my hubby had to change job and finanaces were tight it was easy for me to sell the ring. Luckily after a few years and financial security I was able to buy the double halo ring of my dreams. so long story short if you like blingy go for it! And if you have any regrets down the line if way easier to have the center stone set in a sloitaire setting…   Hope that helps you with your decision.

     

    Also what carat weight are you thinking for your center stone?

    @amssuriah:  I voted knife edge because it’s so classic and you can pair it with any wedding band. I have one and it’s a soft edge so it’s not sharp and is very comfortable.

    Well it’s all purely subjective of course, but l find the first design very ornate and convoluted. I particularly dislike the way the wedding ring is , well, distorted to accomodate the engagement ring. 
    The classic solitaire looks , as ever, beautiful. And a plain matching wedding ring with maybe a sparkly spacer/stacker in between
