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 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.
