    @paygeee:  I vote halo.  I personally don’t have a halo and sometimes regret it.

    I had a solitaire for a month and it just didn’t do anything for me, I really tried to love it but I didn’t. So I got my halo & have never regretted it! I was like you and believed the whole “halos are just a trend” bs but the truth is, theyre not, they’re beautiful! I love my halo sooo much. I don’t think I will ever get tired of looking at it. When I was shopping for my ring I have now at one of the stores I only tried on halos & the sales girls engagement ring was a solitaire with pave down the side and she said she didnt really like it anymore and would go with a halo if she could do it over again. I say go with your gut!!

    I don’t think anything that you personally like is a trend. I have wanted a rose gold engagement ring since I started looking at rings at age 13 and now that rose gold is a ‘trend’ and I will have my rose gold engagement ring soon it irritates me. I voted the solitare simply because I liked that setting more but I think you should get what you want, no matter if people are saying something is ‘trendy’ right now.

    I voted for the halo and I have a halo. For me personally, I love six prong solitaires but in order for me to want to wear one, the diamond would have to be quite large (like 2ct or bigger). I know that sounds materialistic but it’s true. So I got a halo because not only do I love the extra sparkle, but it gives more finger coverage, which is what I want/like.

    I personally don’t like halo’s at all.  The halo overshadows the beauty of the centre stone.  I also like simple designs, so find the halo’s too intricate.  I also don’t like the way the halo shown sits up really high. 

    You have plenty of time to choose a setting if you’re not getting it until next year.  Why not get a mock-up of each setting and wear it around a while to see what you prefer more? 

    Definately trying them will give you a feel for what you prefer.  I know that I always wanted a plain solitaire but it didn’t suit my fingers and ended up with a 3-stone with channel set side stones and it looks stunning!

    I don’t have a halo – but I voted halo because I like finger coverage (my fingers are size 9… they need a lot of coverage!)

    I don’t think you can go wrong either way! 🙂
