I love halos and DGAF if they’re trendy- so are lots of things! For a reason, I think 😛

I’m not crazy about halos because I feel like when you have a beautiful stone, a halo can seem like it takes away from it. I think a good center stone should stand on it’s own, it shouldn’t need accentuation.

I love halos but there are definitely some halos that I’m not into. I always find it interesting that they’re so trendy on the bed because almost all of my friends are married or engaged and not a single person I knows has a halo except for myself. 

I also don’t care if people don’t like them because they’re trendy. There’s a lot of rings I’ve seen on here that I don’t like or I think look very dated but that’s why I’m not wearing them.

I have a double halo, which is often unpopular. 

I actually didn’t think I would like it until I tried it on. Fiance loved it and thought it looked great on my hand. What we thought would look good turned out not looking so great. Funny how that happens!

I have a cushion halo around my round stone e-ring.  My fiance picked it without any help or input from me so I did not put much thought into it before I began wearing one.  My mother did have her e-ring reset with a halo (round halo with round stone) a few years ago because her band had worn down and needed to be replaced, and I thought it was beautiful.  I think they look like a flower.

None of my friends have halos, but the number one comment I got was that the ring suited me and my style.  I couldn’t ask for anything better!

I love halos, so much sparkle! I wanted one because I like how unique they all are, I see a million solitaires that all look the same but every halo looks different to me in some way which I love! They may be trendy on here but in real life I have only seen one! I definitely didn’t care about making my ring look bigger that actually makes me laugh, I could have had a much bigger solitaire but decided to get a smaller center stone with a bit more going on.

I used to dislike them because they were “trendy”. I also saw a lot of one stone halos. But when I saw my three stone halo ring, I knew it was my ring.

I can’t stand solitaires on myself, it’s just too plain. Fiance picked out a very unique halo for me and I adore it.

I love halos. I think they are a beautiful way to complement a center stone. I also like their vintage feel. I love mine in particular because it’s octagonal, which I think is different. 

I also wanted a halo because I have a size 7 finger  and like a lot of finger coverage. This is not making my diamond appear larger – it’s about selecting a ring that achieves a desired proportion relative to the size of my hand. I don’t like small rings on larger fingers – that’s just my personal preference.

While I thought halos were very pretty, I never wanted one for myself. I envisioned myself with a solitaire. When we tried rings on for the first time, my fiancé thought the more sparkle the better. We found a halo with enough sparkle for him, and I just love it!

It does get under my skin to know that people think that halo rings are just to make the center stone appear larger.

I have a very dainty halo, since my ring is a morganite I wanted a little sparkle around the stone to compliment it since morganite isn’t as sparkly, more of a glow than anything. I love halos but I lean more toward the “vintage-y” feeling halos

I love halos! they’ve drawn my eye since I started looking at engagement rings! (actually floral halos did, but once I tried those one, they were too “cutesy” for my hand). Here’s mine! I love it because i feel like the size of the stone and the thickness of the halo are in perfect proportion, and it seems very “clean”. Plus I like the vintage-y feel it evokes without being straight up vintage.

Everyone has lovely rings, halo or not!

In general I love halos. Of course I have come across a few I didn’t care for, but that’s true for all styles of rings (solitaires, three stones, etc.). I have loved halos since I saw Princess Diana’s as a kid, but when I was choosing my orignial engagement ring I started second guessing myself and opted for something “classic”. My solitaire was pretty, but I never loved it. My husband upgraded my ring setting on our one year wedding anniversary and now it’s perfect for me. 🙂 Here’s a picture. I had some pretty lighting coming through the curtains. My cat kinda photobombed it though lol.

I love my halo! I feel like with my center stone being an  emerald cut it adds spsrkle while my center stone flashes.
