I think that really depends on the halo setting. I know for mine, the shank is connected to the halo, so there’s no way they could, like, switch it out. Maybe if it’s more of a basket-style halo?

Side view of mine so you can see what I mean:

@Heidibrooke:  Thank you! And yes, the image that you posted looks like it would be an easy change-out. That’s pretty cool!!

Hope the diamond hunt is going okay! 🙂

Our jeweler told us the same thing but we didn’t go into a big discussion of it since that is not my choice.  We are upgrading and I have two college-aged daughters who want halos and I am trying to be respectful of everyone’s choice and not copy or steal what anyone close to me wants or has as far as style goes.  Our discussion was mainly along the lines of you could either go with a soiitaire now and add the halo later or take the halo off if you got tired of it later.  They are beautiful, though.

That definitely wouldn’t be possible with my type of halo, but I’m sure it’s possible with some. Good thing I never want to lose the halo! 🙂

@Heidibrooke:  Thank you for your sweet comments!  I find that “my thing” comes to me when I am not thinking about it.  I should start by saying I am terrible at making decisions.  I’m not sure how to explain it but if I look at something and see all the choices, then go away, and think about something else or do something else, one choice will linger in the back of my head.  Sometimes I find myself comparing all additional things we find to one particular choice.  To me, that means my choice is made and I have learned to listen to that little image or voice.  I have always been happy when I have gone with that one.  On the flip side, when I don’t choose that one, I still find myself thinking about what would’ve been.  Does that make sense?  Either way ring shopping is such an exciting process!  Enjoy the ride!!!
