It sounds like you just aren’t in love with the options you’ve seen today. I would keep looking at and trying on more rings.

I do like the classic look of the solitaire but that halo you have picked is so pretty!! Especially with the thin diamond band! I like the oval shape too its slightly different. Both lovely options!

Personally I like solitaires more than halos, but I just like simple rings. There are just as many people out there who will prefer halos!

I was indecisive about what style of ring I wanted, so I bought some cheap CZ rings on Amazon and etsy to try out.  I think it’s hard to make a decision by just trying on quickly in a store. This way you can wear it and see how it feels.

FWIW I don’t think that kind of halo is going to look too dated 10-20 years down the road. It’s kind of a classic style that comes in and out.  Look at Georgian, Victorian, and Art Deco jewelry for example!

This is funny because I had the same experience, but flipped. For YEARS I though for sure a halo was for me. Then a saw the TrueGem Nora ring (solitar with melee on the shank and a compass setting) and I fell head over heels. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and all.other rings were compared to that one. So that’s the one we got and I’m so happy we did.

So I say 100% go with the halo! It seriously looks soooo so amazing on you!!

I’m not a halo person but that one is really pretty.  It looks very classic, and the oval makes it look more delicate overall than a typical halo.  I like it a lot.

I’m usually not a halo person as well but I vote for the halo, love the romantic feel and it works well with the oval. I don’t think it will look dated, might look “heirloom like” some years later which isn’t a bad thing!

You’ve just got to go with what you love! From the way you’ve described them, it seems to me that it’s the halo that makes your heart sing 🙂

In 20 years you’re going to be a lot more concerned about your face being dated than your ring. LOTS of rings look dated, it’s not a bad thing. Just because something isn’t au courant doesn’t make it unfashionable or unappealing. Go with what speaks to you now, not with what you think is going to look less out of fashion in 20 years. Look at solitaire, even their styles change.

And you can always get another set of rings every decade or so. I highly recommend it lol.
