My SO already picked out the ring and now I’m second guessing myself about the wishlist I gave him. We ordered from moissaniteco.com and I did get to see another style halo at Helzberg Diamonds, but I just don’t know. Is halo designs just the current fad? Can I see pictures of your halo? (Ugh, the Halo song just got stuck in my head.) Thanks!

I can see you halo. Haloo.
Sorry, that probably didn’t help. I don’t think its a fad so much as a style preference. Moissanite is so pretty!

@arclee: AAARGH! I just got the song out of my head! lol I don’t know. I don’t know WHY I let other people influnce me. I love halo because it looks so vintage to me and that’s me! But then I show someone my wish list and I get feedback like “Oh, it looks like costume jewelry!” WHAT!? Anyway, here are the ones that were on my wish list.

I don’t know if I’d say they’re a fad but they’re definitely a trend. But then again I think you can say that about MOST ring styles except plain solitaire in a plain band. And even then the type of metal is kind of a trend. Platinum used to be en vogue, then yellow gold, then white gold, now yellow gold is coming back into fashion. For a while marquise stones were THE thing and then princess cut stones became really popular. Ring wraps were super big there for a few decades and now you see lots of blinged out pave bands. Rings are impacted by fashion just like everything else. Pick a ring you love, and you’ll love it forever. 🙂

@CorgiTales: Thank you. I know I will love the halo (there’s that damn song again!) for life. I just get…crazy I guess. lol I know I can’t please everyone. I have to remind myself it’s something I love. Some people love princess cut stones and personally I don’t, but I would never ever say “That ring looks like costume jewelry.”

This is mine…I didnt know what the setting was called until now!!
Ilove it..its low profile which is nice.
Its deffinitly a trent like any wedding item. I was engaged 5 years ago and EVERYONE had the three stone ring…and now i find alot of people have this setting 🙂

They’re saying it looks like costume jewelry because they could never afford something so big 😉
Also, maybe people feel more free to make rude comments when its a “wish list” and not the actual ring? In my experience (and I have a sapphire, so its not entirely traditional) people have only said things like “oh its pretty” and “oh its so you” to the actual ring, wheras in discussions before I had the ring, when I said I didn’t want a diamond, people tended to be more opionated.

Agreed with Corgi! You need to pick what you love and not even worry about what other people think. There are so many different trends and opinions on what a e-ring should look like that it won’t matter in the long run. If you pick what you love you will be happy for a lifetime. I think we all have mild concerns when it comes to our wedding rings…I was self conscience of mine for a bit because it is quite flashy, but I love it and don’t care what people think anymore.

@Baileyh: That’s almost like the one I want! so pretty! I can breathe again. Like I said, I found what I love but then second guess it when other people say something negative about it.

I LOVE my halo and you know what? After it was ordered (and I knew it) I had second thoughts. Fiance even mentioned that he liked solitares and I almost had a panic attack because I knew it was too late to switch! Luckily, the moment I saw it I fell in love with it and every day I love it more and more. It is soooo perfect. One of the reasons I love it is because while ‘trendy’ right now, a halo is most certainly a classic, almost vintage style of ring. Never forget, Princess Di had a halo-set sapphire!
I think the rings you posted will be lovely, even if they do look like costume jewelry in the pictures. The only reason they do is because those pictures blow up the rings to gigantic sizes! I encountered similar problems. It would really behoove jewelry store to yes, offer larger-than-life sized pictures but also some actual-life-sized pictures of rings. It’s hard to imagine what it’ll look like on your hand if it’s blown up to 400%!
Here’s my halo. They may be ‘trendy’ right now, but I only know of one other person who has one and it looks nothing like mine. 😀

I have a halo and I love love love it! It made the ring very affordable yet I still get comments all the time that “my rock is huge!” Even when it’s not actually all that big. It’s stylish, vintage-looking, and I drool every time I look at it! Go for it with confidence, ma lady!

i LOVE halo settings, I think they’re gorgeous, and definitely not “trendy” but a trend – but if you love it, then go for it!
