If you get a halo setting you can always keep your original solitaire setting and if you change your mind you will still have the option to go back then get another moissy or coloured stone to put in the halo…go for it!!!

I don’t know if you’ll regret changing your ring.  If you’re so torn about it already, I’m guessing you’ll regret it.

I have changed my ring twice, and I did not regret it at all. There is no need to feel bad about it if your fiance is on board and doesn’t have hurt feelings.

I personally love a solitaire so I wouldn’t switch it. You could always get a halo rhr with a gemstone for some kind of milestone if you can’t decide–happy medium.

I had a solitaire and had it changed to a three stone. I do not miss my solitaire and I LOVE my new ring. 🙂

You know, I’ve contemplated the same thing for my ring. I saw a few bees’ GORGEOUS wraps that make the engagement ring look like a halo! I’m considering getting a wedding band wrap as a wedding ring, and the second one as an anniversary gift or something. Would you want that? Just an option 🙂

I love solitaires. I was told halos are the new “trend” and I’m not a fan of following trends. That being said, I’m not going to tell you not to get one just because of that … BUT … it does sound like you may regret changing your ring if you’re already so torn about it 🙁

 Is your current ring a plain solitaire? You can have a custom halo built around it instead of getting a whole new ring.  Have you always loved halos? If so, go for it. If not, then I’d keep your solitaire. Halos are considered “trendy” and you may not love it down the road.  I’ve always known since I was little I wanted a halo so for me it was a no-brainer.

I would never change my ring. FI took the time to pick it out and he spent a lot of time and effort getting me the perfect ring. I did not have a say in it at all it was a complete surprise when we got engaged and it means the world to me that this truly came from him and his heart and is what he wanted. If you picked your own ring I think it would be easier to change but you might regret it since you are already so torn…..

Well, I’ve changed my ring twice so I have no problem with someone changing their ring.

Something you may want to consider is a halo with a plain shank.  This image is from Brilliant Earth and it shows the wedding band with it.  It kind of the best of both – halo and solitaire.
