I think you’ll only have regrets if you choose a setting for any other reason other than you love it and it feels like you, regardless if that’s a solitaire or a halo setting.

Besides, you can always change a setting down the line, so you might as well get what you love now.

I’ve never once regretted my halo…but everybody’s taste is different. Go with your heart!

If you wanted a halo because it’s trendy, you will regret it later. But you don’t. It’s the look you love. Plus an east-west setting is uncommon. Go for it. I have a halo (but the center stone is a sapphire) and I love it. Halos have been around a long time.

I’ve never regretted my halo. It adds that extra ‘ooomph’ to your ring!

I’ve never regretted my halo.  It’s my diamond’s push up bra!

I always wanted a halo so I don’t think I will ever regret it.  I also have gemstone rings with diamond halos, so for me it isn’t about making the diamond look bigger, but about having a frame around it.  But, I wanted it because it makes it look old fashioned, and it sounds like that’s a negative for you.  Maybe you can go try some on?  You probably won’t find many east-west oval settings in a store but just trying on some north-south ovals or rounds with halos might give you a better idea of how it will look on your finger.  I think it sounds lovely!

I actually did regret the halo setting I was proposed with. I had my diamond reset into a solitaire setting. I love it now. The halo setting was to big and chunky and the pave destroyed my skin from all the rubbing. Halos are beautiful so I know I’m one of the only girls that could turn down a halo.

I adore my halo, couldn’t imagine my ring any other way! It’s part of what makes it special and I have a very unique style of halo so I get a lot of compliments every day on it 🙂

babykoala:  I love that ring! I actually have it saved on Pinterest as a way to set an oval diamond we have. I have a solitaire ering but want a halo RHR just like that! best of both worlds.

I’ve never had any regret, love my halo.  I think your choice of ring is really beautiful; if you love it, go for it!

babykoala:  I did! I had a halo but swapped it for a solitaire. The halo only had a 0.75ct centre but it felt too blingy and uncomfortable for every day use – plus it looked like one big stone from the distance that most people saw it so I thought it looked a bit… clumsy I guess? My solitaire is simpler, more comfortable and can be combined with any wedding ring! You should try on both styles and decide for yourself. We bought ours online so if I’d tried them beforehand I might have made a different decision.

I think most people wouldn’t regret a halo, but as you said you were never a fan and now suddenly you do, I’d be concerned that you’ll change your mind again. I think that ring is gorgeous though

I love my halo and I agree with goldenruby that I love the “oomph” or added detail it adds to the center diamond.
