    I am a solitaire fan from way back.  While I have seen many drool worthy hallo’s in all shapes and sizes, in my mind of the stone is substantial enough then let that baby shine!

    I think elongated shapes are best solitaire, or with side stones. I love ovals with small side stones and that might be a good compromise for you.

    I just love a nice solitaire oval, so classic but still unique! If you can I’d find a place to try both on because how it looks on you might surprise you! I fell in love with a halo that way even though I liked that same oval solitaire you have pictured here!

    That’s my ring! I have the Blake from Rosados box which is the one without the halo, I just love it! I think solitaires are just so classic 😍

    I had this same decision to make and agree with @ElephantandtheFlea– try both on and see which one you like better! The halo I tried on was gorgeous, but the oval solitaire seemed more me

    Obviously biased but I think a solitaire setting is more flattering for ovals.

    I guess I’ll be the odd one out. I always loved halo. Unfortunately it doesn’t look good on me but if it definetely does on you! So, I would go with halo laughing

    I had the same dilemma. (Granted my ring is morganite and not diamond, but the challenge was still the same.)  A beautiful stone looks stunning all by itself. I’m so happy I chose the solitaire.

    Solitaire for sure. My reaction to every halo I’ve ever seen is:

    From far away: Omg look at that rock!
    Gets closer: oh…

    Not that it’s all about the size or anything, but a solitaire just makes a statement that a halo will never be able to match.

    I’m often a halo lover but in this case, the center-stone is so stunning on its own and the halo just takes away from it. I vote solitaire!
