    I love #4 but I’m not sure about how a wedding band would sit with that

    You know you can get a square halo for a round sone don’t you?  I have a RB and have been thinking of doing just this. I love a halo and love my R B but dont like the look of a round halo. Check Brian Gavin or Whiteflash settings.

    I voted for the simple round halo, as I have an oval halo. I think they are stunning.

    I love the first two! The princess halo is really pretty, and I normally don’t gravitate towards square halos.

    They’re all very pretty!  There’s something about #2 that I’m drawn to.  Maybe it’s the little round diamonds that form a triangle at the edges of the halo.  It’s a little different without being over the top.  I too would want something that a band would sit flush with, but if you don’t mind a gap then any of them are beautiful.

    I like 3 or 4 the best because of the simple skinny band. It would be easier to pair a wedding band with either of those and I just love the simplicity of them

    @LeenieBee:  we just ordered a halo ring, and I love it! They are all so different! If I could give you a piece of advice, try them on or something very similar before you order them if you haven’t already. All of them are so beautiful that you couldn’t make a bad decision!

    Although princess cut diamonds are my favorite, I prefer the round diamond as a halo. I voted for #4. It’s so classic and elegant.

    @LeenieBee:  Have you tried any of these on? I was dead set on a halo just like the last one you posted (the simple round) and when I went to try it on, I HATED it on my hand. It just looked…plain.

    I eventually went with a triple halo, which I love, love, love. Like this: 

    My point here is: It’s not so common to try on an engagement ring, but it’s a big purchase, and I’m glad I went shopping. It helped me avoid ring regret. Laughing

    @Reeniero: I love your ring! Do you have a wedding band yet?  I’m just curious because I have a similar style ring, i’ve moved it to my right hand and got a new ering because I never found a band that would go with it, yours looks like it has more height, mine is pretty flat so that made it harder.

    @mrsmay07:  No, mine is pretty flat. It’s all bezel set. 

    We haven’t gone wedding band shopping yet. I’m totally ok with a ring gap though. When I picked this style, I kind of figured I’d be SOL in finding a matching band. Unless we got one custom made, but curved bands look bizarre on their own…so. Yeah. 

    The only drawback to having an uncommon ring style. Tongue Out

    @Reeniero:  Yeah, I was going to have a curved insert made for mine, but the quote I was given was outrageous and it wouldn’t be able to be worn on it’s own, plus it would just look like one thick ring as opposed to a “set” so I wore it alone.

    This is mine, I have seen similar styles online, but very few IRL or even on ring boards, so I’m excited to talk about it. lol 

     

     

    Sorry for the little thread jack, OP
