maritabee33 :  Something can be “time specific” as well as “around for centuries”. I don’t think anyone is saying that halos are a new thing that is just around for now. I certainly wasn’t.

TheMrsTulip :  I agree with you.

Firstly, I respect other opinions and every person has different taste, but this topic is about regret.

When my fiancé asked me to look for my ring with him, I wanted a halo because I think we always want a bigger stone and if we cannot affor a bigger stone, halo gives the illusion of having it. Also, it’s a psychological thing because we can see this model everywhere, it’s like an advertising thing. But when I went to the store and the seller showed me their best sellers and they were all halos and just two solitaires, I didn’t like the idea of not been a little bit different. Moreover, I did not like how they looked on my hand, and I didn’t feel comfortable. Also, my fiancé told me that he wouldn’t buy me a halo because it’s a trend of this decade and he wouldn’t want me to regret in some years.

At the end, we’re all different and you should get what it makes you happy.

I have a halo and love it, it’s not a “normal” halo persay, the halo comes out of like swirl type things on my ring…. just look at the photo because I suck at describing lol.

I don’t care if someday that makes my ring dated. Rose gold, white gold, 6 prongs, marquis diamonds, moissanite, ovals, 3 stone rings, stacks, infinity/eternity bands, delicate/dainty rings, assymetrical rings, alternative stones…. ALL of these are popular right now and could be seen as dated someday. Just like classic solitaires in yellow gold are dated now in many people’s eyes because yellow gold isn’t “in”. No matter what you try to do to avoid trends, it will still end up indicative of a certain time period.

No regrets! I originally wanted a solitaire but my husband picked this (he apparently thought solitaires were plain and common.. whatever, dude). Blew me away when I saw it, though. I couldnt stop thinking about it when we left the store. To this day I still love it and I’ll love it a decade from now.

I think halos look interesting. I truly don’t care if it will be dated later. I love it and can’t stop looking at it.

I considered a halo and went against it after I noticed the two married women in my friend group both had essentially the same ring with a halo. I wanted something different and “timeless” (nothing really is though). Also halos started to look like a blob of sparkle to me after a while.

Ultimately i see lots of rings I like and dislike on this board for example. All that really matters is do YOU like it? I wouldnt worry about it being trendy. If you decide in 5-10 years you want something different you can always upgrade it/change style.

I don’t regret my halo at all. I like a lot of sparkle and bling and I like how it makes the center diamond look larger. If I had a 4 carat diamond I would have still put it in a halo, lol.

Order 2 rings from berricle [you can return them], one with a halo and one without.  Problem solved before you spend money on something you may or may not like!

This is how I decided. Darling Husband likes buying shiny things. He found out about white sapphire and went a little bit nuts because he wants me to have “the ONE” ring that I will have forever done in gold. So he got me a halo and a solitaire and a heartbeat ring (the center stone moves). I still wear them all on occasion. Since I couldn’t decide, he picked out the set he liked the best, between the five or so choices I had on a list. He’s buying that one for our vow renewal.

I love my halo. I don’t know anyone else in person with a halo that is this shape. My ring feels very unique. I think every aspect of a ring (metal, halo/solitare/three stone/etc.) can be trendy at some point – it makes more sense to not care about that and just get what you want.
