Hello! I have been looking at engagement rings and am in love with this one in rose gold: http://www.debebians.com/bezel-mount-morganite-rose-gold-engagement-ring.html
I love the rose gold and morganite combination, especially in a bezel mount with a halo! The options for the center stone are 0.9 or 2.5 ct (for a size 6 finger). I’d prefer 0.9 between the two choices.
Any thoughts? My boyfriend really likes the ring but is worried that the “halo style is too popular”. I’d really appreciate any input!

I think you should get whatever you love, regardless of populartity. I don’t look at people’s rings and notice how popular/unpopular their settings are. You’ll be wearing it forever so might at well pick the one you love !

vas48: I am waiting for my SO to propose, and if he paid attention, he’ll propose with the morganite halo ring I have been dying for! I think he ordered it, fingers crossed!
Anyway, halo settings have been around for a long time. They were very popular in the 1920’s as well. They’re vintage and classic. Sure, they are popular, but they are timeless. If anything is “popular” it’s a solitaire, because those are the most common! It’s all about what YOU want and what HE wants you to have. Boys don’t know much about style anyway. Ask for what you want.

vas48: I agree, you need to get what YOU like! I really don’t know if there’s an overly original ring out there anymore anyway. Get whatcha love!!

I would think the diamond/white gold look was more popular, lol. I have yet to see anything else in real life.

Thanks for the feedback! I personally don’t care if what I like is “popular”, it was just something he brought up. Haha plus if I were to pick what I thought was a popular ring, it definitely wouldn’t be rose gold and morganite 🙂

vas48: loveeee that ring! And yeah I think with the bezel and halo the 2.5 would be way too big. .9 will be perfect. I think you should just get what you love. If you really love halos but get a solitaire because it’s more timeless… You’ll have halo envy for sure!

vas48: i guess it depends on where you’re from because where I live, halos are not the norm. and i yet have to see rose gold rings outside a jewlery shop. its a beautiful ring! i say like the rest of the bees, go with what you love. you’ll be the one wearing it forever! plus if you’re worried about the fad of halos/rose gold fading – look at whats happening to leg warmers and shoulder pads – they’re making a comeback! lol.

Agree with PP, get the ring you love. The ring you posted is beautiful.

That ring is gorgeous! I personally love morganite with a halo. I agree with all of the other bees that say get what you love 🙂 I’ve actually worked with that company too and have had a great experience overall.
<br />Can’t wait to see pics of whichever ring you choose 🙂

First and foremost, what you like matters more than what may or may not be in style a few years down the road. Halos have been around a long time. They will go out. They will come back in. Even if halos are popular though, a morganite engagement ring IRL (not on the Bee) is not common. I wanted somethin unique but have a halo. The fact that the center stone is a purple sapphire keeps it unique enough for me. And a halo makes a gemstone pop.

Gorgeous! I have a rose gold morganite pear with halo… I love it. I wake up every day super happy. I hope you do too!

If the ring calls out to you, then it touches your heart! My problem is I have SEVERAL styles that call out to me, so I am leaving it up to my SO to pick the one that he think is the best representation of our love! When looking at a few, he actually picked four of the same ones I had picked without telling him.
Case in point, if you love it and he loves it…then that’s all that matters!!!!!!!!!! I think your choice is goregous, and the cut of the stone is mesmerizing!

vas48: First, get whatever you want, regardless of how “popular” it might be. You will wear it every day and need to love what’s on your hand.
Second, as for the popularity, I see the morganite halo on this site all of the time, but I have never actually seen it in person on anyone. So I think the popularity factor is always skewed when you are on a website for weddings/rings.
And honestly, I don’t think any ring style is really all that unique. There’s so many women in the world getting rings that your style will be repeated somewhere by someone. 🙂

I agree with a lot of the other comments here. IDK about anybody else but even after having my ring on my finger I’m still obsessed with checking out other people’s rings. I mostly see solitaires, platinum, three stone, etc. I’ve seen one halo IRL and 0 Morganites so I feel very special walking around with an oval morganite w/ halo. I feel like my ring is super unique and not common at all.
