I love the look of halo engagement rings, and while I adore my ring as it is, I would like to see about having a halo added. However, I only want to do this if the setting will not have to be altered. My center stone is rather small (around .4 ct) and FI has said many times that he wants to upgrade to a larger diamond. I really don’t want to do that though, since it’s the diamond he proposed with. I think adding a halo would look really nice and allow me to keep this diamond.
Has anyone had a halo added to their ring? Does it look like a halo could easily be added on mine without other alterations? Thanks!
ETA: Hmm…photos didn’t work! I’ll try again!

Beautiful ring! Personally I wouldn’t add a halo… I think it looks stunning as it is and I personally feel halos are a bit too “trendy” at the moment (really really no intention to offend anyone, I think they are beautiful but just not my style). However it’s your ring and if you really want to I think you would have to change the head out at the very least to add a halo. It might even be simple to remake the setting entirely. I would have a look online at different style halo settings and then go to a jeweller with your ideas and ask for their opinion.

@MrsT2b: Agree! It looks STUNNING as it is! Halos are beautiful, too- but very fashionable at the moment.
An option you could look at is getting two wedding bands that act as a wrap on the wring to give the halo effect?
I saw a thread about this earlier, but can’t find it now 🙁

I agree with the other bees. I’d just leave it, it’s so pretty as it is!!!

I have a halo, so I’m usually all for halos! However, I think your ring is beautiful! I doesn’t need anything! Later down the road you can make changes if you want to, but I think it’s really pretty the way it is!

Thanks so much everyone! Your comments were so kind! I have to go in to have the ring re-sized so I’ll probably just ask about the cost and difficulty of adding a halo. But I’m not completely sold on adding one…it’s just a thought. I do very much love my ring the way it is.

I agree, your ring is stunning! I personally wouldn’t switch it. Maybe that’s because it looks a lot like my ring 🙂
