Sorry for the typos as I’m on my phone.
I lost my rings last week. Darling Husband and I searched our place multiple times without them turning up. I put a claim in today with the insurance company and am starting to think about a replacement.
My set was a princess solitaire and round prong set eternity band. While I loved the look, I never found the set to be very comfortable or practical. I never lost any diamonds from the eternity band but I did bang it a lot. I don’t think I want to get another eternity band.
I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with halos the last year or so. I thought I wanted a solitaire until I had one and found it a little too plain even after adding the eternity band.
My SIL has a halo and she loves it but said she catches it on everything. Her halo is raised so her wedding band cam sit flush and she’s getting another band for the other side for Christmas. The open side catches on things so she’s hoping that adding another band will help stop that. I don’t like the idea of wearing 3 rings as I had a hard enough time wearing just 2 rings.
So those of you with halos, do you find them impractical or catching on things?

I really think you need to go and try it on yourself. I have a halo (not my ERing) and it’s not the most comfortable ring in the world, although I do love the look. I find that it spins and bothers my baby finger (rubs against it).
Having said that, all rings are different and had I known about the uncomfy fit, I would have shopped around. I bought it long before halos became popular and still think it’s stunning (it houses a family diamond from the late 1800’s/early 1900’s.)
I can’t wait to see what you decide to get!

I have a halo and I love it. The first couple of weeks it catches and moves around and whatnot, but once you are used to it you don’t even feel it. I love my ring so much…… It is exactly what I wanted.
if it is what you want, then get it!!!! 🙂

My other ring is a halo. It’s very comfortable. The only reason I don’t wear it anymore is because it’s too “boxey” For my taste. It’s a princess cut in a cushion halo, I prefer round halos.

I’m also in the camp that halos seem a little cumbersome although I personally have a solitaire-like style ring with flanking baguettes. I would be concerned one of those little stones could get knocked out and get dirt in the nooks and crannies.

I had a halo for a minute before deciding it just wasn’t for me. I also have an amethyst RHR that has a small diamond halo around it. Neither were uncomortable. And I don’t snag them on anything anymore than my regular solitaire with side stones. The halo I had was actually a much lower profile than my other rings. You just need to try them on and see if it’s a look you like. Good luck!

My halo has a pretty low profile compared to some that I have seen. It’s very rare that it catches on anything. I hardly even feel it on my finger 99% of the time.

I don’t have any problems with my halo. It spins a bit, but it never scratches my fingers. I agree with the previous poster and I definitely think it has everything to do with the setting- my stone is set low and the halo is on a cathedral setting:

I have a double halo, but it was specifically made to be low profile. I wear it under my nitrile gloves at work and I don’t find it cumbersome at all.

I have a double halo also. It’s very comfortable, low set, and it doesn’t catch on anything. I wear it all the time. I love it

SnowInApril: I have a halo and I love it. It never really catches on anything and it spins, but that’s because I don’t like my rings to fit perfectly, so I got a larger size ring for when my fingers fluctuate in size. The band on my halo is thin so it’s comfortable. I just bought a partial eternity band. I didn’t want a full eternity band because I didn’t want to have to worry about banging it against things and losing the diamonds.

I have a halo that sits pretty high with pave diamonds on the band. I don’t find it uncomfortable, I don’t really even feel it on my finger. I also never get it caught on anything that I notice anyway. The only thing is I couldn’t wear it to work because I’m a nurse so I’m constantly putting gloves on and off, but we can’t wear rings anyways. I guess depending on your job and what you do with your hands will depend on how practical it is.

I have a double halo and I’ve never had any issues

I have a halo, and it is also pretty low profile… It only catches on knitted clothes or knitted blankets (i think most things would though lol!!). I don’t feel it anymore on my finger.
