I think they are pretty, but I think at least in the area I live, everyone has them. Not too much uniqueness there. I’d much rather have a ring thats different than what everyone else has at the moment, which is why my fiancé custom designed mine. It wasn’t anymore expensive than going to a shop like “kays” and we actually got better diamonds. I do agree that they tend to look cheaper IMO. Only because it’s usually a smaller diamond and a ton of small little ones around it. Again, to each their own.

I went back and forth on them. They’re very sparkly and pretty, not anything I’d want for day to day, but when had to send my Ering in for resizing I got my stand in ring which is halo style. It’s fun, different, more sparkle than me Ering, has been kinda fun for a bit but I do miss my ring, and just reaffirms that halo is not my style.

Not a fad, I have seen many an heirloom halo e ring. They did however burst in popularity…i think they are lovely!

I love a good halo! I love a good solitaire, and am an equal-sparkle-opportunist.

Not because I have a halo but it makes me chuckle when people say they are so common or trendy…
Umm being that solitaires are a classic style wouldnt they be more common? Let’s be honest… if you aren’t beyonce or Mariah Carey you are getting a ring that someone else in the world has (design wise) no idea at this point is brand new…

Regardless of the OP’s intentions this thread is offensive…if I came on here saying I am so over strapless dresses knowing that a lot of people have them I would offend people. It makes me question what the point of this post is? You want people (mostly total strangers) to know your personal preference on rings because….!? I’ll wait for the answer to that one lol
The comments, some respectful, others not so much just prove that we live in a narcicistic society where everyone thinks their opinions of things that don’t affect them matter.. well guess what people.. they really dont.. carry on —->

I like them with a colored center stone. Clear however, I have seen too many that just don’t sparkle enough. I don’t know if it’s a bad cut or bad setting. But I see emerald cut centers that sparkle less than glass. That’s a very common ring here.
My ring can’t be a halo, so never an issue.

I was never on the whole Halo thing to begin with! I wanted a solitaire but I’m actually happier with the setting my Fiance found, it’s got tiny pave stones in the band (almost like an eternity band) and one tiny diamond in each of the prongs. It’s simple yet fancy. I love it and wouldn’t change it for anything!

As much as I didn’t want a halo e-ring I do wear a hearshaped halo RHR. It is opal and pink tourmaline and we bought it super cheap! SO and I both have october birthdays and I always wanted an opal I could wear daily and not worry about it getting mesed up. So I guess I’m not “over” halos as much as I had a different preference for my e-ring.
I did have a princess cut ring in the 2000’s with my first marriage, and that was trendy then, it didn’t bother me because I liked my ring. In fact, it is still a beautiful ring, even if its history isn’t the greatest.

Everyone has a preference for rings styles. That’s great! Variety is the spice of life. I just don’t get how you can be “over” them. What does that even mean? Are halo rings haunting your dreams? Are they showing up at your work randomly and causing a scene? Do they follow you?

Things can be trendy or a fad even if they have been around for a long time – fashions go in and out of style. Halo rings have been around for a very long time but have also been particularly trendy the past few years – which is okay! That doesn’t make them bad.
Halo rings have never been my personal taste, but I have nothing against them and have seen some beautiful ones on other people. Everyone has their own style. I do think this thread is kind of pointless and sh*t-stirring. I don’t generally love the look of halos but I don’t understand starting a whole thread about it when they are something many women on these boards have and love.
I am happy for anyone who loves their ring, regardless of whether or not it is my personal style.

funny bc if this was a thread about being “over” mermaid dresses which are a trend now it probably would’ve been closed days ago.

Mods, can we close this? I have seen countless other posts directly bashing other styles and items that obviously a lot of brides here have- diamonds, moissies, dress styles, rings etc. this should be no different. From your own TOS:

I think it is funny how halo rings are such a gosh darn HOT TOPICCCC.
It’s just a style of ring like any other, so I don’t see why it over anything else brings out this kind of intensity.
Not my favorite thing in the world. They look nice from the top but there is something about the profile of a halo ring that I never quite liked for myself.
As far as people saying that they aren’t “trendy” because they have existed for a long time, I think that they have definitely gone up in popularity in a major way in recent years. “Trendy” does not mean that something needs to be new to this earth.
