I don’t like double halos at all—does she? It’s a gorgeous ring, as long as you think it will fit her style, do it!

I love Lauren B’s work, I’m constantly drooling over their rings on IG. Personally, I’m not a fan of double halos either, but if you know your girlfriend likes them, this is a beautiful choice!

rob1c :  I think is beautiful.  I have no idea on the cost. It’s going to be expensive. At least 5 grand

I don’t think you’d need a single halo to makeep the center diamond pop even if it’s smaller. I also don’t like double halos.

The halos are too thick in my opinion. But if she wants the biggest ring possible she’d probably love it!

I think it’s a beautiful ring & LaurenB has amazing setting options. Personally I’m not a fan of double halo’s but if your gf is then that’s all that matters! With the 1.2 carat center diamond, with that great color & clarity, a double halo may detract from the beauty of the stone! Personally I would pick a single halo since she likes the halo look. And the price will probably be around $10K+.

I love halos, but not double halos.  Again, if your girlfriend loves double halos then I think she’ll really like this ring.

I think a 1.2 carat cushion is a very nice size.  They face up smaller than some other cuts so it will look more like the size of a 1 carat round, which is a very nice size.  It’s about what you two want – if you want the finger coverage, then go with the double halo.

I have no idea of that designer’s cost.

Given the specs of that center stone, a double halo is going to hide how beautiful it is. but if it fits your budget and your gf likes it, then it’s perfect.

and yes, it’s gonna be pricey. It’s gonna be at least $7-8k just for the center stone and the setting is likely $3-5k.

That ring is beautiful. It’s a pretty specific taste, though- between the halos and the shape and the size of the various stones.

I, personally, am a fan of double halos but not so much of single halos (in contrast with several of the people who have commented already). Also I like the look of a large ring and lots of sparkles but tend to take them off if I’m wearing them for too long. Would your girlfriend want a ring she could wear all the time? Would this ring be comfortable for her? 

If you feel certain of your choice for your partner, I think you should go for it. If you’re at all uncertain, I’d make sure that you can exchange it or have other options. That’s a gorgeous ring and an expensive purchase for her to not love it completely.

I will also add the context that I was a part of choosing my own ring and, if he’d been left to his own devices, my husband would have gone in a completely different direction that I wouldn’t have loved (and that would have sucked for both of us) so feel free to take or leave my perspective.

I think I know someone with this exact ring! As others have mentioned, if she likes double halos I would pull the trigger, she’ll think it’s beautiful.

Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of double because it hides the beauty of the center stone. I also think that 1.2 carats with a single halo is plenty of finger coverage. That said, you know your soon to be fiance best! LaurenB is amazing. Even as a simple solitaire girl, I still catch myself on her instagram from time to time! 

Congratulations and goodluck!
