You’re ring is very pretty though I am partial to halos.  Your stone does seem to get a bit lost in there though. Is it possible to have your diamond set up a bit higher? It seems to be set down very low. When I first got my ring, the diamond sat flush with the halo and I didn’t like the way it looked at all. They were able to set the diamond up higher and it looks amazing now. The center stone stands out, and the halo just accents it and adds to it’s beauty!

Hm interesting. I had pretty much the opposite experience. I had a very plain solitaire and never got any compliments on it. Then I reset it into a halo setting and for the first time ever last week a complete stranger asked to see my ring up close and said it was amazing and her dream ring! Haha. I say, it doesn’t really matter what other people think or say. I changed my ering because I always wanted a halo and it makes me happy.

Your ring is beautiful and if you like it then that’s what matters. I bet a lot of people think in their heads that they love your ring but are too shy to come out and say it to you, especially if they are strangers. Don’t let the lack of compliments make you feel less in love with your ring. 🙂

I wonder if having a wedding band with zero bling, just solid, would help bring the bling notch down a bit. But like PP said, if you’re happy with the bling then stick with it!! I never get compliments on my solitaire and I haven’t really thought much about it- I ADORE my ring and that’s all that matters!

I think you should look into having the center stone set higher, too. That might make all the difference. Also, the halo stones are kind of large for a halo setting with a center stone that size. Maybe that’s why it looks a little bit “Emerald City”.

Also, I’m not sure halos are really all that classic of a look if that’s what you’re going for. They’re pretty trendy. I like the new setting you posted, but before you go to all that trouble, maybe see about getting your center stone set higher.

The center stone kinda gets lost in all the bling. Thats my issue with halos. It is a beautiful ring though and super blingy! Im partial to the simplistic beauty of a single stone.

@halolover:  You know this is kind of tricky because IRL most people don’t notice rings. I do because I LOVE rings but I’ve noticed a lot of ladies don’t even look at my ring. I’ve never really received compliments. Are you saying people close to you don’t comment or strange people you come in contact with?

you do have a thick halo but i think it’s pretty.  if you want a different look, why not use your ering stones and do something like this in a prong setting.  i think it will look nice with your wedding band.

@halolover:  I really like it.

I think you need to figure out if YOU love the ring or not. You sound a bit confused. If I am understanding right, you’d be happy with the ring if you got tons of compliments on it.

I know it’s hard not to care what people think, but you can’t please everyone.

I like solitaires, but it’s possible that people wouldn’t notice it either since everyone has solitaires.

You never know why people don’t say anything. Maybe they’re just jealous. This isn’t the same thing, but I normally get TONS of comments on photos I post on Facebook, even vacation photos. We stayed at a really swanky resort about a month ago, and like one person commented. Yeah it’s possible that just no one noticed I posted them, but they could also be jealous and thinking I am showing off… who knows. That doesn’t mean that I am going to assume that the place we went on holiday sucked. I don’t need affirmation/validation from others. Sure, compliments are nice… but not necessary.

I think your ring is gorgeous and I would definitely comment on the SPARKLE in real life.

Love it! I don’t think halos are just a trend, I think they are lovely and classic.  Great choice!

I have a solitaire and I get compliments on WB but nothing but snark IRL…..If you change it based on what others think then you will drive yourself silly…you can’t please everyone….in reality, it’s about what YOU love.
