I have loved halos for years and years and finally got one a few months ago when I got engaged! I can’t imagine anything else on my finger and I hope that I will always feel the same. For me solitaires are a little too plain, although there are some solitaires that I think are absolutely beautiful (mostly ovals)! I guess like others have said it comes down to personal choice and what feels right for you.

shellbee9903 :  Thank you!  Mine is platinum, but it would be beautiful in rose gold too.

Nope. I’ve always been a halo girl…even in my teen years the rings I drooled over had halos. They’ve been around longer than people think ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s just my style.

I had a halo regret years ago but it was not becasue of the halo per say. I had inherited a diamond that was sub par in specs. It was a larger stone that was lower color and had a cloud. It looked decent in many situations but that darn cloud would show up in certain lights. I had the brilliant idea to set it in a halo to add some sparkle to the overall look. Well, turns out that particular stone NEEDED as much light coming in the bottom and sides as possible, and the halo setting blocked much of the light coming in. The stone looked much worse in the halo setting than it did in a high solitaire. Still loved the halo setting though ๐Ÿ™

I have a double halo in rose gold with makes all the little stones in the halo pop and I love it. I’ve always considered solitaires a little plain looking. Even as a girl I never dreamed of having a solitaire. If you really love halos but are afraid of regretting it in a decade I’d get a solitare with a wrap/enhancer to put it in to give it the halo look and it can always be removed or traded for a plain band down the road if your style changes

i think u should get what u like .. however my 2 cents is im not a fan of the halo for a ering for the most part i think on all of these pics i like 1 that is the larger stone with a thick halo but its really just that ring 

i would wear a halo for a RHR but not my ering i chose a solitare 6 pring modeled off of a tiffany ering.. will always be classic sturdy and be timeless in 50 years when im 84 !!
