I have a halo so at least here on the bee it’s considered trendy and new so they will be outed in no time.  In actuality like everything else with fashion halos were around before the Victorian Age.  They like everything else come in and out of style but are always classic.  Princess Kate is wearing the halo sapphire Princess Diana received over thirty years ago.

That’s really cool, I didn’t know that (: I always saw them as modern because of the clean lines and sleekness 😉 Thanks for teaching me something new!

I love that halo’s are so popular now, but I’ve wanted one since in new what a wedding band was because they are really more of a vintage style, which is so me! Seems like everything vintage is popular these days but I’ve always just loved really old things! 

As far as the bezel set goes, I could see where someone would call it modern because it has a very sleek plain but pretty look that would be considered a modern style! The bezel set is actually from the art deco era (correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think I am) and the art deco era did actually have that sleek-look to it that would be considered a modern decor style.

@Susanlee178:  OHMYGOSH YES!!!!!!!! My new ring will be bezel-set and part of why love it is because it’s such an old way of setting stones!

@NovaRising:  Dear God this. I hate when people say that halos are trendy and that they’ll be out of style soon. I’m sorry, but your “unique vintage” ring was once a trend. It’s “out of style” now, but it’ll be back in style sometime in the future. That’s how styles work! 

 

Disclaimer: all “you”s in this sentence are general… I don’t even know what your specific ring looks like. 😛

@mrspinesol:  LOL yes!  Plus I understand your disclaimer since women can be so touchy.  LOL, I guess you didn’t want someone giving you shit.

Everyone keeps saying rose gold is trendy. I don’t know if it is or not but in my mind it isn’t. It’s just popular at the moment.

Also, I have never really been fond of the way bezels look but I ordered a play ring that was bezel set from Overstock a while back and MAN is that thing comfortable. I could do anything in that. Sometimes I put it on and pretend it is my engagement ring haha. My actual e-ring is so fragile! It’s a welcome change, haha.

@Susanlee178:  YES!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted an earthy ring (with an extremely small center stone, not necessarily because I wanted a small stone but because I loved the ring and it happened to have a small stone) but FI didn’t love the design, so bezels were definitely the way to go for me!!! It has a halo (which I equate with the art deco period) but it’s all bezel and heavy on the metal so it feels very old (not 90+ years, 1000s of years) which I LOVE!!!! Hippie universe connections all the way!!!!

A trend can be dated even if it is recurring.

I mean, speaking of Princess Diana, puffed sleeves certainly weren’t invented in the 80s but they sure are a trend that characterizes that era.
