    Everything is dated eventually. Pick what you love. Change it later if you discover you don’t love it anymore 🙂

    When I’m engaged I hate solitaire so much and goes with three stone rings. Now here I am 6 years later dreaming for a solitaire, and got my halo ring 2 years ago lol. My taste change along with time, so I don’t think you’ll ever go wrong with picking what you love now.

    Halos have always been my jam. The first ring dh ever got me was a blue sapphire halo. IDGAF if they ever look “dated” because they’ve just always been what I love! My blue sapphire ring is now 13 years old, and I don’t think it looks dated. My engagement ring is a double halo, and while it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I will always love it.

    Love my halo but if I ever get tired of it, I’ll either get a new ring or have it reset.

    I’m personally not a huge fan of halos for e-rings, but I don’t think they will go out of style.  I remember when they started gaining popularity in the early 2000s thinking they’d look so dated in 10 years…but here they are continuing to grow in popularity.

    purplefae :  I don’t get this notion that only halos will date. Even a lot of solitaires will date as well because even in solitaires the setting, diamond shape, metal choice will change slightly depending on trends.

    Honestly get what you love and don’t stress on whether it will be dated down the line because it most probably will. I personally love looking at persons engagement ring. If they keep their original it dates how long they’ve most likely been married and where they were at that stage in their life. A lot of my parents friends got married in the 60s and early 70s and they wear their original. I don’t look at it as dated, I see it for its beauty which is linked into its sentimental value. An engagement ring is a snapshot of where you were at in your life and that to me is inherently lovely.

    Get what you love now and if it does end up being something you don’t get so much joy from in the future, you can retire it and get something more in keeping with your new aesthetic.

    I have wanted a halo style ring ever since I was a kid and saw Princess Diana’s. But, like you, by the time I was ready to choose my e-ring I worried that they were “trendy”. I settled for a solitaire and was indifferent to it. A couple years of wearing it I reset my stone into a halo. That was five years ago already and I still admire it everyday and still take pictures of it all the time. Below is one I just took of it yesterday (don’t mind my nail polish… it was the first time I attempted to paint my own nails since having my daughter lol!)

    I love my halo so much!! I think if I ever think I want somethibg a bit different I can always reset my diamond. But for sure not a solitare because I don’t like solitares, they lack excitement imo

    cypresstree85 :  Team bootcut Jean right here!  I hate that every time I go shopping for jeans I’m stuck with a multitude of skinny jeans to choose from! 

    Anyway to answer the original question, Halos have been in and out of trends for years, that’s the thing about fashion what goes around comes around, yes they are trendy now but will they be in 10 years time? Probably not, but be damned sure 20-30 years time they’ll be back again. So don’t worry and get what you like.

    I love halos, I have a solitaire but do wonder what it will look like with a halo 😉 

    they are trendy and seem to be a very popular option right now but that’s not a bad thing, not at all!! 

    Every type of ring will have/have had it’s popular moment and no doubt will be trendy again in years to come 😊

    michelleh0686 :  I’m team bootcut Jean’s too! I find the best ones at Old Navy. In a world of skinny Jean’s it’s nice to have a place you know you can find your old standbys! 

    I’m team halo even though I also have a solitaire. I’ve come to realize for a solitaire to suit me it has to have visual interest meaning interesting profile,stone shape,band design etc. Other than that I need a halo or some other kind of ring. I have a halo and a double halo and I still love them. If you love something it never really out of style!
