That sounds like a halo.  I think people say they are more maintenance because those little stones around the diamond can come out, though I’ve never experienced this.

I have a halo. Love my pretty girl 🙂

I havent done any maintenance other than getting it cleaned once in a while.

@Bostongrl25:Same here. I also haven’t had any problems with diamonds falling out, knock on wood!

I think because all the little stones, and nooks and crannies help it to get dull pretty fast. I clean mine about three times a week with a Dazzle Stik inbetween my major cleanings. I havent lost any stones though.

I’ve had some problems with the pave diamonds falling out of the shank (which could just as easily have happened on my eternity wedding band), but none from the halo itself (and that turned out to be a defect from sizing, anyway, and they rebuilt the ring for me). I haven’t found the halo to be the cause of any additional maintenance.

If you have it made by a reputable and knowledgeable jeweler (as I did with my halo!), you shouldn’t worry about the tiny stones falling out. My jeweler specifically set the little diamonds with special prongs so they won’t fall out. I think the only other “high maintenance” issue about halos is that they are a bit harder to clean in terms of getting grime and dirt out from under the small stones. I just soak mine in hot soapy water for a few minutes then use a soft makeup brush to get everything out of the little crevices!

It’s kinda hard to tell, but here’s a close-up photo of my halo and you can see how every diamond has its own prongs. If they share prongs (as most halos do), they are more likely to fall out!

I have a halo.  Have had my ring for almost a year, wear it 24/7, cook all the time, no problems whatsoever.  I think the craftmanship is what matters most, noot necessarily the design. I love my rings.

I think it just depends on how the diamonds are set- I haven’t had any issues with mine.  The jeweler specifically said he set them so they wouldn’t fall out.

I’ve had my Halo for 8months and wear it nonstop unless I’m showering or cooking something gross lol I’ve had no problems at all.

I do have it cleaned at least once a month and they do a visual check of the stones. Then every 6months I get it really inspected.

Oh, and here is mine:

I love it, I haven’t have any issues with cleaning either and it sparkles beautifully.
