ChellFish22:  I like the first setting better. The side detail is pretty, and the second setting looks to busy.

I vote for the first one. It’s really beautiful!

definitely the first one. I think halos have a limited timespan, whereas the top design is original and won’t date so easily

I like the first one the best. Also, don’t know how you feel about gaps between your rings, but looks like a band would not sit flush with the second setting.

I don’t like the first one at all. I think the halo is much more romantic. I really dislike princess cuts, too, so the seond one is a total win in my books.

I love the Neil Lane halo and like MissLibra:, I also think it looks so romantic!

If it were mine I would wear it alone/without a wedding band. I have a pretty wide halo ring that I wear by itself and I love the look of a stand-alone ring. I wear my actual wedding band from our ceremony on my right hand. So that’s an option to consider. 🙂

ChellFish22:  I think anything that is trendy will always end up looking dated. Everyone I know has a variation of a halo, and I think in 10 years time we will all know what era they got engaged in (and I’m guessing a lot will want upgrades).

Solitaires are definitely timeless. I have one from my first marriage 18 years ago, and it still looks brand new (and the same style can still be bought).

This time I went for my emerald cut trilogy because it is different from what everyone else has and doesn’t have a date stamp about it. I wanted something timeless too. Trends will always go out of style.

The first one shouldn’t ever look dated, because there is no set time that it is ‘on trend’ to have that style. I think you are safe with never hating that one down the line because of a trend.

ChellFish22:  I really dislike channel set stones, so I’d definitely choose the second setting over the first.
