So yup, I'm making that horribly irrational decision to pair myself with one person for the rest of my life. But I guess we are irrational beings right?
I'm torn between two rings, well really two cuts of diamonds. I'd appreciate your opinions
Asscher Cut Diamond in a Halo setting
Cushion Cut Diamond in a Halo setting
Thanks in advance for your help

Hey, that's great! Both rings are nice, but I like the Asscher more. I'm quite partial to the squarer cuts as I have a Princess cut and I love it. Your girlfriend will probably like anything you get for her.
What is her overall jewellery style or taste like? Like with me, I don't wear a whole lot and nothing very sparkly either, so a halo would be way too much for me. I'm all about simplicity, lol. In terms of your selections there, I really like the Asscher as it's not a diamond cut that you see too often. There is a modified Asscher called Octavia, which is slightly more octagonal and has more facets. I don't think Blue Nile carries them though.
The Cushion cut is also nice, and I think it's an older style of diamond cut. Radiant cut diamonds are very similar to Cushions. Cushion cuts look better in the halo setting than as a solitaire, whereas Asscher is pretty either way (to me anyways).
My own engagement ring is not from Blue Nile, but I do have earrings and a necklace from them. They're great, seriously.1
