I really dislike halos (sorry halo ladies) and strongly prefer classic, simple rings. I agree with some previous posters that with the size of your center stone, adding too much else may take it from an elegant classic into gaudy/ostentatious territory. Stop listening to other people! In the end it really only matters that you love it.

I have a princess solitaire with that exact same Tiffany wedding band.  I love how it looks together.  Mine is a .75 carat on an 8.75 finger though, so it looks like a little bitty diamond chip compared to your huge rock!

Honestly, that looks perfect. I think when you have a diamond like that you don’t need all the extras (halos, etc). This looks classic and very pretty.

I do not think it is plain in a bad sense at all!!  It is classic, and fabulous!!!  With a center stone that size you do not need to clutter it.  I would just let that beauty shine on it’s own.

arcusiris:  Your ring is not plain! I am not a solitaire girl at all but I think your ring is quite lovely. It’s so classic and timeless. Do you love it? How YOU feel about it matters most because you are the one who has to wear it everyday.

I don’t think you should change anything. I think simple bands are perfect for larger solitares and keep them elegant as opposed to gaudy but all of this is HIGHLY personal. I would not add a halo. If you want more bling, maybe you could change the setting and do a thin pave or micropave shank? Or what about adding some delicate milgrain or filigree to the shank? The pave would still keep it simple but would add a bit of sparkle. The milgrain or filigree would add some detail but still keep it classic.

I totally believe that we should LOVE our rings. I hope that whether it is falling in love with what you have or changing it to make it perfect for you that you end up with something that you love.

It isn’s PLAIN, it’s SIMPLE. Big difference there. The ‘that’s plain’ friends are probably just feeling a bit green. I mean that’s one hell of a rock! May I ask how man carats it is?

arcusiris:  I think it looks beautiful as it is. If you really wanted to add something you could stack a thin anniversary band. Maybe something with a little color?

Your ring is Gorgeous!!! Leave it the way it is, when you have such a beautiful stone you want that to be the focal point. A solitaire is classic and will never go out of style and it is true that people are haters, so just ignore them (including your mom). Your a lucky girl to have such a nice ring and I’m sure that many Bee’s, including me would love to have a ring like yours 🙂
