SO and I just got back from the jewelers, where he put a down payment on my ring! I originally thought I wanted a round solitaire or a solitaire with small diamonds on the band. But SO pointed this one out, and when we saw it on my hand, we both liked it much better on me than the others. Funny how trying a ring on can make such a big difference.
Sooo, that’s how I ended up with a 3/4 carat, princess cut center stone, with a halo 🙂 SO’s face was priceless when he saw that on my hand. Wish I could have captured that on camera… He had mentioned before that he wanted the whole engagement process to be a surprise, but I’m glad he changed his mind because today was very, very special.
It will be sized and ready for pick up on July 6, and hopefully an official proposal will come VERY soon after so I can wear my beautiful engagement ring ASAP. Can’t show pictures or blab about it to anyone IRL yet, so I figured I’d get my giddy energy out here!
I’d love to see anyone else’s halos if you’d like to post. I’m so happy to be part of the halo club! 😉

Beautiful ring! Good luck getting through this last stretch of waiting, it’s a doozy!
I actually had the opposite ring shopping experience; I went in wanting a halo with a plain band and ended up getting a round solitaire with a pave band. So I completely agree with how much of a difference trying rings on makes.

Congrats! It’s gorgeous! My ring looks similar except its 1/2 carat center princess. I tried to be a solitaire girl but I LOVE halos especially square ones 🙂

@NeverMoreLenore: I totally know what you mean about things being totally different when you try it on!! I went in wanting a princess cut diamond (that hasnt changed) with a straight band with no diamonds…then switched to a princess with a straight band and pave diamonds on the band………and ended up falling in love with a kite set princess with a twisted band that has diamonds all around it. I don’t have it yet but I’m sure it will be coming soon!!!! It was ordered mid to end of may…eeeee! I also went in wanting nothing to do with picking out the ring and ended up realizing how picky I was about the small details and my boyfriend said I should come look with him.
im so excited to hear all about your proposal story!!!

I love halos!!! Mine is a 1/2 carat princess cut with a cushion halo on a cathedral setting. Congrats on your wedding!!!
It’s getting resized from a 7 to a 6 right now so I won’t get it back to a couple days beforeChristmas. 🙁 I miss my sparkly. I did get a chance to wear it for a few days before I had to turn it in. Love it!!! Can’t wait to wear my wedding ring that came with it!! Wedding here I come!!
