I’m wondering if any of you own or have looked at rings that have a sort of “understated” type of halo design? I’m talking about something like this: http://www.moissaniteco.com/designer-inspired-round-brilliant-moissanite-engagement-ring-p-12168.html
Even though the “halo” of stones appear to be situated slightly below the center stone, do you think a ring constructed in this fashion would actually appear different than a standard solitare? Do you think the “halo” would be noticeable?
Pictures or thoughts welcome!

That is a gorgeous ring! Although I think halos are pretty, I sometimes get the feeling that they are a little too much sometimes. I do like the idea of halos though versus a solitaire or three stone, its a much more unique style.
As for your question, I think it will definitely look different from a standard solitaire. From the picture the halo looks noticeable but it might just be creative photography. Maybe try your local jewelery store to see something similar?

I’ve never seen one in person, but I do think it would be noticeable. Although I personally prefer halos where the halo is the same height as the centre stone, if that makes sense.

@futuredoc: Thanks for your imput – I totally agree. I like the delicate look of a thin band, and solitares can definitely be elegant in their simplicity. I thought I was over-the-moon for halos, and while I still think they’re stunning, I can’t help second guessing. I am wondering if this option kind of blends the best of both worlds.

This was one of my top choices but it was a bit out of our price range. And in the end, I prefer bands that are a little thicker because I have long fingers and lots of real estate to cover! I actually think super thin bands look silly on me.
It’s a beautiful, unique ring! I think the halo would be noticeable, for sure. It does have stones on the prongs too which I think makes it a little unique and different from your standard solitaire.

That ring is beautiful! Yes, the halo would be noticable, just more delicate looking than most I think, which I really like about it actually. Just curious- what size center stone would you get?

I love this ring. Thank you so much for posting it! I love how it combines the solitaire feeling with the halo. I have a solitaire now, but I want to get it reset and my FI isn’t a fan of the “true” halo ring, but I think he’ll really like this type.

I haven’t seen a ring like that before and I think it’s really beautiful!
