I peronally like the bottom one but I am a little biased because I’m not a big fan of rings with a halo.  I mean, they’re beautiful!  Just not for me.  I also love how dainty the band on the bottom ring is, sooo beautiful and classic!!

Rounds and cushions perform very differently. Rounds will have more fire, so you need to decided what kind of performance and look you like. In any case,  I’m not a fan of a round in cushion halo. The halo stones end up looking asymmetrical as they are unevenly covered by the round stone and it drives me a bit nuts.

I’m also not a fan of a round diamond with a cushion halo, for this reason the solitaire gets my vote.

Have you tried on both styles to determine which looks best on your hand?

Obviously the halo gives better finger coverage but I prefer the look of bottom cushion

I vote the solitaire, but I’m also super biased because halos aren’t my personal style and I also have a 1 ct cushion in a similar setting.

What do you prefer? Don’t worry about too many other people having a similar style. Go with your own personal preference regardless of how popular it may or may not be.

I like the bottom but I’m biased because I don’t like halos. I  love the look of a classic solitaire.

I prefer the one without the halo! I love the delicate band and clean lines.

I was torn between two rings very similar to those and went with the cushion cut solitaire and I couldn’t be happier! I LOVE that halo, but I have several friends with similar rings and wanted something a little different. Both are beautiful!

I have a round diamond in a cushion halo, and I love it.

HOWEVER… that solitaire looks stunning on you. Solitaire gets my vote here  😁

I love the non-halo one. I think the center stone has more wow factor, rather than being clouded by the halo.

If you have time before you make the decision maybe you could get a fake halo and/or solitaire and wear them at home and see which you preffer.  I got this fake halo at kohls for $16.  I currenty have a solitaire with diamonds which i love ,but somedays i think about making it a halo.

I vote the bottom one! But I’m another one who doesn’t like halos much- I prefer no halo or double halo.
