I love the symmetry of the DY one! All are really pretty though!

I like them all, but I love coushion with halo bc that’s my ring! lol

I don’t think 1.5 with halo is too big, as long as you get a very thin halo.  My center stone is 1.63, and I got a micropave halo (like harry winston) and it’s perfect! =)

My vote goes to the solitaire, no doubt. Solitaire rings are SO elegant and timeless.

I love the look of a yellow gold solitaire! So timeless and classic!

I love halos, but I prefer them the same shape as the stone, so in this case, I’d vote for the Tiffany style solitaire.

@Aamitchell51:  Post a poll when asking for opinions.

Definitely the classic solitaire!  Here’s my stand-in, which I wouldn’t mind for the real thing!

I have always loved both. My advice before you make your decision would be to try both styles on. I, like you, always dreamed of a halo ring…but once SO and I went ring shopping and I tried on a few…I hated the way they looked on my hand. Good luck!

They’re all beautiful.  If you haven’t already, you might want to wear a super-wide stand-in ring before making your decision. I’m sure you’d get used to it, but because of the placement of the knucle on my pinkey, I can’t wear bands that are too high and/or thick. I love the DY, but my first reaction was that it looks uncomfortable.  I’m assuming that it would get squeezed together, though, which wouldn’t be as bad.

@Aamitchell51:  Something important to consider, if you haven’t already! 1.5 carats is not nearly as big as the stones in the photos you posted, so remember to re-size ’em in your head!

@Aamitchell51:  No, absolutely not! You should get the stone you want! Just thought size should be something to consider. Like in the DY pic that diamond is 4 carats AT LEAST and with a smaller diamond the whole look changes. Also, if each “shank” is too thick it could mebe take away from your diamond. Just a thought but I’m sure trying them on in store will help a lot 🙂 Again, I love all of your options!
