Hey bees, trying to decide on a setting for a ring… I’m so split. I started off knowing I’d have a pave ring and then as we started looking for rings I realised how much I loved halos. But then now that it’s time to decide I just can’t make up my mind!!! I like the wow the halo gives me, but I like how classic the solitaire without halo looks. I asked my SO to decide but he really wants me to decide bc he wants me 100% happy. What do you think??
Sorry about the number of pics (wanted to take as many so you could see different angles and flash/no flash) and terrible nails.. time for a manicure!
Feel free to share any comments you have along with your vote 🙂

I’m not a trend following person and I’m obviously biased towards a classic solitaire lol

I do not like halos most times. But especially this time.

I only like halos when the center stone is is different color for the contrast. When everything is the same color, I think halos look kind of silly.
But that’s just my own personal feelings! You go with what you like best!

I think it looks beautiful without the halo. You mentioned wanting a pave band but the one you posted in option two looks like it’s a channel setting… personally I’d vote no halo with a pave band.

I’m going throught the exact same dilemma. Halo or no halo. Honestly, the more and more I think about it, the more and more I’m liking the classic look of a solitaire with some bling on the setting. Between your two pics, I def like the solitaire without the halo. The halo seems to hide the center stone too much and I’m not diggin that.

I’m generally not a fan of halos at all… so I vote no halo.

I like the band in the first ring better, but the solitaire in ring 2 better which is an entirely different ring than anything posted, but I agree with PP who said it’s what YOU like! 🙂
For what it’s worth I’d buy ring number uno but then again I don’t mind a little bit of trend in me.

Hi ladies! Thanks so much for all your votes and opinions; please KEEP THEM COMING!
I love to get the different views 🙂
Btw, I meant to say channel setting not pave.. I still don’t know all the terminology.. 🙂
As a bit of background… the reason the halo theme came up is because of the size of the ring.. The size I felt ‘right’ in was around a 1.5-1.7 ct centre stone. But the price of that I found to be too much (it makes me feel really bad to put so much towards the ring ). So that’s when I found the halo’s and loved them bc they could give me the ring coverage I wanted, without having to invest that much more…
I was ‘sold’ for a while but now having doubts on whether it takes too much from the stone…
decisions , decisions!

i personally have a solitaire, but i prefer the halo option you showed! mainly because i like the thin and dainty band i think.

I’m not into the halos only because they seem too trendy for me, but I like that ring with the halo better.

I like halos, but tiny pave bands make me nervous. While they’re pretty, they just look too delicate, and I think that’s the form of halo that’s going to look “dated” in a few years. Plus it doesn’t take much for them to bend or lose stones.
I actually really like the proportions of the second one. It just looks right.
