Engagement Rings-Which One?!

Torn between 2 rings and need some fellow zed-ex'rs help! Also can't decide if I should go with a platinum or white gold setting. Platinum is better quality, but white gold is $2k cheaper for each design. If I choose white gold, I have more $ for the diamond, but platinum won't fade as quickly as white gold. My max budget is $7500. What do ya'll think?

Ring1 is $4100 in platinum or $1900 in WG and Ring2 is $5k in platinum or $3500 in WG

i would go with the second just because if the first flexes it looks like it could drop the stone

#2 in WG.

For my wifes wedding band, I didn't spend a WHOLE lot of money on it because she isn't into the bling bling. Then for her last birthday, I upgraded the band... came home and surprised her. She won't wear it though because of the emotional attachment she has with the original one.

I'm quite sure (if she's a good one), she'll be happy with whatever you decide to put on her hand! :)

Stay away from platinum. It mares easy and requires constant polishing. The kind that requires going to the jeweler.

If I can't ride it or it can't make me a sandwich, I don't want to be bothered!!!

I forgot to choose. Lol. I say go with number two in white gold. White gold doesn't wear out as fast as you think. It will be a long time before you need to re dip it.

See, I keep getting told that platinum will last longer. Yes, it will patina, but it won't fade and it can be buffed out. White gold has to be rhodium plated occasionally to keep it shiny.

I'm not talkin about patina on the platinum, I'm talking about very viewable scratches and marks. White gold that is worn everyday would need to be replated every 3 years or so. Not that frequent in comparison to the upkeep of plat. If you ask a jeweler they would most likely recommend white gold even though they make more from plat.
