I have narrowed it down to two different style engagement rings and can not decide which one I like more! The center will be a 1.5 carat cushion cut stone and I wear a size 7 ring. I don’t know if I want a solitaire setting with a pave band or a micropave halo setting. Please give me your thoughts and opinions!!
I love the solitaire setting because it really shows off the center stone and I love the clean look of it but then other times I worry it may be too boring.
Then there is just something I love about the micropave halo setting but then sometimes I think maybe it looks to cluttered when compared with the solitaire.

Oh both are so beautiful, I can see why you’re having trouble! I like the halo slightly better, but I’m biased since I have a cushion cut in a halo 🙂
You should add a poll so bees can vote!

You really can’t go wrong with either. Why not go with a solitaire for now, and then later if you’re still thinking about a halo you can add one?

I think I prefer the solitaire. I like @KatyElle: ‘s idea.

The halo! I definitely know what you mean about some halos looking too cluttered, but I LOVE this one.
…..I also have a halo though, so I may be a little biased 🙂

I like @KatyElle’s idea, make the halo your wedding band

@KatyElle: good idea
I also think the cushion shape itself is special and the halo kind of masks it. I have a Ring Bearer but I’ve heard from men who have chosen cushions, that they really devote time to picking a stone they like and the shape is part of that!

This is funny commig fom me, who is currently stalking a particular petit halo ring all over the interwebs, but I actually feel like the whole “halo” thing is just a fad. Look at your mothers or grand mothers rings, are they classic? Or are they showing their age by the tastes of the time they were purchased? I love them, but I have been thinkig about this lately, and now I am leaning to something that is classic and will never go out of style!
That is my opinion, so I chose the solitaire, but honestly both are very lovely!

i voted for the halo. it usually overpowers the main stone and i don’t like it, but not in your case. i think it gives you a fuller look whilst excentuating the main stone which is keyyyy!

I’m a huge fan of halos, so I’m sticking with the beautiful halo you pictured above.

@nambi_pambi: I dislike halos for this EXACT reason. However, this is the one instance where i like the halo more than the solitaire. It is so delicate and understated i think it is prettier (both are GORGEOUS, though). But it means a lot coming from me, a sworn solitaire person, that i picked the halo!
