A beautiful ring is a beautiful ring, no matter what year it is.

@booEXcore:  Just wanted to comment, I never even read this thread until now. The other post has nothing to do with this one particular post- if you are on weddingbee long enough or even just search “halo trendy/trend” you will see a ton of other posts will come up regarding this topic (even if you are reading a solitaire vs halo post, the issue will come up), it wouldn’t be funny if it only came up once since it is a legitimate question people have!

Ehh, I don’t care if my ring appears “dated” in such and such years.  It will merely be a reflection of the length of my marriage.  I LOVE the halo look, which is why I got one.  Just like my Future Mother-In-Law loves her yellow gold cluster that she got in the late 70s.  I am the ONLY person I have ever known IRL that has a halo, btw.  Everyone else mainly just has the solitare or three-stone look.

I personally love the vintage look of art deco halos, they remind me of the 1920’s and I love vintage jewellry!! Here is my art deco beauty!

All rings are beautiful. I love clusters, halos, different shapes, sizes, band widths, detailing, filigree, pave, everything! Because I love everything at some point or another, we chose a simple solitaire for my engagement ring. It was a GOOD choice for me. It’s classic and streamlined and the yellow gold sets it apart from all of the white gold/platinum rings out there. White gold is a trend, the three stone ring was a big trend, and now it’s halos. Just like we can identify 1920’s era rings and 1980’s era rings, we’ll be able to identify the 2000’s rings pretty easily. That’s just the way it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve only seen one halo IRL but I will say this, if my halo does ‘date’ my engagement, then I’m almost happy.  In my mind, someone will look at my finger in 10 years and say ‘Wow, they’ve been married for 10 years already’ or 20 or what not.  I’m proud to have gotten engaged when I did, so if someone who is privvy to what style of rings were popular when, more power to them for knowing how long we’ve been together.  LOL.

I don’t think so. I wanted a halo for years, before I knew it was called a “halo” or knew they were currently somewhat popular. I like it because it looks antiquey and classic to me.

Also remember that on wedding forums, things seem much more popular than they are in real life. I don’t know anybody else in “real life” that has a halo engagement ring. Just like I’ve never been to a vintage-style wedding, or a wedding with a photobooth, or a wedding with a candy buffet, etc.

Dont settle for the classic engagement ring because that is considered dateless. Buy what you love and it will never go out of style!

I think the halos that have a decent sized diamond in the centre and a very delicate halo look timeless and i love them on a skinny band.

I don’t care if it looks dated – I kind of like that! It will be a reminder of the times when we were first engaged and in love and all that sappy crap. Plus, maybe one day when a grandchild wants to get engaged my ring will be all fashionable again!

If it’s a diamond in a diamond halo in a white metal setting, I would assume the person was married in roughly 1920-1930 or 2005-2015. Other clues will help me determine which is the case ๐Ÿ˜‰
