    I prefer solitare. Solitare is also definitely the most “timeless” look, much moreso than halo (this is from someone whose ring is neither a solitare or a halo,) so as that’s important to you, it seems like solitare is what you should go with. Are you saying that’s what you already have?

    I think it really depends on how big your diamond is (or whatever gem you decide). The halo makes it appear larger, whereas the solitare setting, i think, would be for larger, stand alone gems.

    Thats just my opinion though. I happen to love the halo setting with the pave. Thats the one im getting.

    I would go with the solitaire with pave sides (even though I think in this case it isnt a solitaire anymore :)), I really wanted a halo as well, but I honestly didn’t think the 40 year old future me would love it as much as I do now. I would go with the 6prong with side stones

    I vote for a classic, 1.25ct solitaire, but I might be biased since that’s what I have. =)

    I vote halo!  Maybe I am bias because I have one, but to me they are so beautiful, they sparkle like you would not believe.  Maybe its not considered “timeless” but its not “typical” either, which is what I consider solitaires to be, just my opinion.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I get a ridiculous amount of compliments on my ring on a daily basis.  I love it, I cant stop staring at it!  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Personally I have a halo, but if you want that tineless look, solitare would be best.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had the same issue, and probably confused my fiance when I was sending him pics of rings that I liked (before the proposal).  I have always loved the six prong ring but the more I browsed the more I started to really love the look of a round halo! It doesn’t help one of my best friends has a halo and it looks amazing on her.

    However, I tried on both a few more times and always went back to the six prong.  It’s a timeless look and it’s what I’ve always loved and I think I will love years down the road.

    Have you go into a store to try on these different styles? I think that helps a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS I ended up w/ a six prong w/ a thin micropave band.
