I’m turning my solitary into a halo setting. It’s a very sharp cathedral setting that keeps scratching my newborn. We have also been talking about changing it for awhile because I love the halo look. I’m curious if this looks more like a cluster setting, or halo. The band pictured is the one I was married with so I plan to keep it. The ring in the photo is a sample of the one I want to set my stone into.

I think Halos tend to have smaller diamonds in the halo.

Looks like a halo to me. i think cluster ring stones are the same size vs halo has a bigger center stone surrounded by smaller ones, irregardless of how big the surrounding stones are

Won’t all of those prongs scratch the child too? Yowsers!

LilRhodyGem: It looks like it, but it’s actually really smooth. My stone is princess cut the one I would get is just like this bit for a princess cut stone so it’s really sharp. The outside “halo” is a rounded square but they didn’t have it in stock when I was there. They did the visit before they did so I have tried it on in person. I’m just trying to see if this style looks halo or cluster. I’m not a huge fan of cluster.

halo! clusters to me are a series of similar or same size stones.

I agree with the PP. Halos are just want they sound like. Halos don’t even need to have any stones in them at all! It’s just basically an outline of your stone(s).

I would say halo – clusters are usually several of the same size diamond or a variety of sizes all set to look like a single.

I have actually seen a halo with a cluster stone!! So why not have both worlds?

…do you like the style or not? Why does it matter what it’s called? You’re perfectly entitled to like halos and not like clusters. But it seems really weird to look at a setting, and let the technical name determine if you like it or not.
