I think halo rings are very “in style” right now.  I am not going to say “trendy” because I think that word can have a negative connotation, and I don’t think the stylishness of halo rings is bad.  A few years ago, everyone had a round or princess-cut solitaire, so these things definitely go through phases.

The last 6 people I know that have gotten engaged have almost identical rings.

Halos are gorgeous (I don’t have one, but I know that is what my husband would have picked – he loves halos! – if he had not proposed with a family heirloom), but I think people will definitely look at halos in 20 years and say, “oh, you got engaged in 2009/2010/2011!”

Though it is popular, I wouldn’t say trendy.  To me, trendy implies that it has never been popular before, which just isn’t the case; as pps have stated, halos are actually a reworking of a Victorian style of rings.

Back in the day when I thought I was going to marry my college boyfriend I wanted a halo ring, fast forward to today I have a solitaire but have picked out a new halo setting because I still love them. That tells me that even if it’s trendy, I don’t care because it’s what I love.

And ‘back in the day’ means 10 years ago 🙂

I think “trendy” means whatever is recently popular (whether or not it used to be popular decades ago). So yep, I’d say they’re trendy. Just like white gold and pave diamonds are. I don’t see the point in trying to get something timeless because unless you have a round brilliant diamond on a plain platinum band, I think you’re going to be able to pinpoint around what decade a ring was made in. I think that the pave set diamonds in my band will prob peg my ring as one of the 2000’s rings, and I’m cool with it 🙂

@gocubbies: My mom wore a (hideous) hat/veil in 1983! She also rocked the Farrah Fawcett hair and puffy sleeves!

@CorgiTales: I agree with you.  There is no point in trying to get something timeless, because unless you’re going to get a round brilliant set in platinum (which isn’t my cup of tea), it might look dated at some point.  But it is your wedding and e-rings, that you will (in theory) wear forever, it’s not like a piece of clothing that you won’t wear next season because it won’t be in style anymore.  Trends are going to come and go so I think as long as you don’t go too crazy-different, it will stand the test of time.  I personally really like halos and yea they probably are trendy, but who cares?

@sonomagal: Really interesting! Cluster settings definitely say 80s to me.

Halos are, in my opinion, very trendy. Not in a bad way, but in a ‘every other person i know has one’ way. I don’t think it makes them any less gorgeous, but I did consider whether that would make them in some way less timeless when choosing my setting.

I love the halo on my ring. It was the one thing I told my Fiance I wanted especially on the ring.

I have a halo setting.

I fell in love with the style about 7 years ago, I saw a halo-style square-shaped gemstone ring in a jewelry store, I had never seen that before, and the first thing I thought was “wow, if that had a diamond that is exactly what I want for an engagement ring!”.

Maybe my friends and coworkers are just “not hip”, but I personally don’t know anyone else with a halo ring within my social circles.

I don’t really care if they are popular or not. I didn’t even know they were popular until I started looking at engagement rings when my fiance told me to pick one out.

I didn’t know they were “popular” until I came to the bee, lol. Most of my friends have princess cut solitaires. Not my thing at all. I have always loved halos. I told Fiance that when we went to look at rings, halos were my “thing.” That’s what we picked out. 🙂 Loooove it.

My grandma actually has a halo ring. This was 1954. Wish I had a pic. :/ I might try to get one if I think about it.

I think it looks trendy in the wedding world. In real life? Not so much. Most of my friends have a three stone or solitaire rings. 

My grandmother and mother had halo rings. I always loved the look of my grandmothers ring. It was a pearl halo with diamonds around it. I would be wearing it today if it didn’t go to my older sister.
