On another thread that I posted (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/need-setting-suggestion-for-1ct-cushion.112452/), PS members helped me decide on upgrading the band (plain) of my cushion shaped diamond to a halo. I've got it down to two differnent halos both from Know Jewlers, and would love to see which one most people like most. Not sure if the specs would affect your decision...1.02ct, E, VS2, Ideal . Thanks

Hmmm, there''s certain aspects I like about both, but overall, I would pick the Micro-Pave setting.

They are both lovely. I prefer the 2nd one for aesthetics. But I think #1 might be a bit more ''daily wear'' friendly?

I actually prefer the look of #1 from all 'views'. It has a much nicer looking profile than #2, IMO.

I also see things in both rings that I like. For example, I like the shape of the first ring''s halo. I like the ''cushiony'' shape better than the clipped corners. If you had a radiant I might feel differently in that regard. But, I like the profile of the second ring better. I tend to prefer the lower profiles. So, I guess I''d pick ring #1 with modifications.


Sorry, I''m obviously not helping.

They are both really nice settings, but I prefer number 1. I can''t put my finger on why that is my favorite, but it just appeals to me (from all angles). I don''t think you can go wrong with either choice. Please come back and post after you have made your decision!

Both are beautiful settings, but I would pick the first one. I like that the sides of the actual halo have pave. Let us know what you choose!

I can''t decide for this reason.

What about this Tiffany Legacy inspired setting?


http://www.knoxjewelers.biz/index.htm?crn=213&rn=1665&action=show_detail

Hmm I like both of them but I''m worried your more rectangular cushion will look out of place on the very square ring #2. I like the look of the first one it just looks like its set VERY high. Which I think might bother me personally.

I agree with CharmyPoo actually, I love the ring she posted. However, I know you are on a budget and it is a tad more expensive... early christmas gift? Haha VERY early christmas gift.

I am leaning towards #2 also...but the point you bring up is one of the reasons why I can''t decide.

I pick 2 but I think the round diamond in there is throwing me off.

Do they have anything closer to the Harry Winston setting?

I absolutely love that setting and the inspired version that Erica Grace has available. Too bad it is too big.

I''ve been looking around for a HW halo, but can''t find anything within my budget
I''ve also considered the Tiffany Legacy, but a friend has an exact replica and I''m seeing it around quite a bit. I really think I''m leaning toward #2. This is all pending that I cancel my European vacation...hahaahha, but what girl wouldn''t give up a vacation for more diamonds? I can always save the Europe for the honeymoon...right right?? haha

Hmmm, you bring up a good point... hmmm, you've got me thinking now...
I just emailed Knox, so let's see what they say tomorrow.

personally I prefer the first one, but that might be because I have one extremely similar, I wear it every day and I love it and never have a problem with it. good luck!

I''ve actually considered Excel. I''m not huge on the Endless Love look and the Legacy and the Vatche Grace are similar to what my friend has. I know I was siding with #2, but Callisto brought up a very good point that I my slightly rectangular stone may look out place in #2. Thanks Callisto! I emailed Brian Knox and he said that my cushion will fit right into #1, but #2 will have to be modified in order to fit. I really don''t want to spend more than 2k and I love both #1 and #2 just as much, so I''ll just go with #1.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions :)
