@bluecutie00:  oh, wow! Your ring is absolutely stunning! I love the setting, of course. Christopher Designs doesn’t seem to get a lot of attention, does it? Yet, in doing research for my current ring, and a ring we bought in 2012, I could find no anecdotal evidence of anybody ever losing a side diamond or a halo diamond! I would LOVE to see a side view of your ring, if it’s not too much trouble!

First ever ring I had was a round solitaire in the simple Tiffany style 6 prong setting and I loved it! Overtime I just didn’t like that it wasn’t unique for me. I feel like everyone had that same style so when we were looking for a wedding band both my husband and I kept eyeing halo settings. They just look more complete and of course much more sparkle! I ended up switching that entire ring for a double halo surrounding a cushion cut Diamond. Then shrinkage happened overtime and I did a lot of research on cushion cut diamonds and wanted something in the 2 carat range so I found this gorgeous 2.25 cushion cut and upgraded from my 1.32 cushion and totally in love! I will say I do prefer a single halo over a double. No cons here. It’s set exactly at the perfect height so I don’t bang it on stuff and I have claw prongs but I don’t find them snagging anything. They also add volume to the Diamond. Comparing it when it was loose to after they set it I was in awe of how much bigger it looked after it was set!

@saioasan:  I love halos so much that I have 3 of them. My hubby picked my e-ring, but the other 2 I had a hand in picking them. A halo makes the ring feel finished. I am not a fan of solitaires. Yes, they’re classic, but I like how halos give the ring an extra oooomph :). Here’s my collection of natural mined diamond halos: radiant, oval (10th anniv) & pear (original e-ring).

@gollymolly:  Yes, I’ve noticed that about Christopher Designs! I’m not sure why more people aren’t because I find his work to be so sparkling and stunning. And extremely sturdy and well made. Haven’t lost a stone yet!!

Forgive the dry skin! 🀦🏾‍♀️

I adore halos! I love the extra sparkle that comes with a halo! The biggest con is that they can snag on things easily!

I was married just about 30 years ago and my first ring was a halo. Got a new ring at 25 years and considered doing something different, but I still love a halo. Went with no pavé on the band though. 

First ring…. 

Current ring…

I chose to go for a seamless, delicate halo. Although I love solitaires as well, this just added a little more detail to my ring! Sorry if the picture is huge.

I haven’t always liked halos but only because my favorite cut is princess and the only halos I’ve seen for them were cushion. I saw a blue topaz ring that was princess cut in a true square halo and i new I had to have it! So I sent the pic to an Etsy seller along with my diamond dimensions and he made my setting…a true princess cut halo…at least that’s what I call it lol. 
No regrets in switching from a solitaire with pave sides to a halo, I love everything about it! 
Everyone’s rings are beautiful too πŸ’•πŸ’

I collect antique jewelry (mostly Georgian and Victorian but I do have a few Edwardian pieces), and the halo ring is a classic style.  I wanted a ring that would stylistically work with my other jewelry.

@saioasan:  I have a halo. I briefly considered a solitaire, or a centre stone with small side stones, but I just love the extra sparkle of a halo: not in terms of size, but in terms of the type of sparkle, where you get lots of little twinkles as well as the bigger kind of ‘flashes’ from the centre stone.

The coverage wasn’t really a factor as had I gone with a solitaire I would have gone with a bigger stone. There would have been a difference, sure, but only a small one. 

Edited to add pic!
