I got mine for the reason you said, to decorate stone a little and it being different, ususally not a fan of solitares.

I chose a halo because I love how it looks and I would never change it to a solitaire. For me it’s not about making my ring look bigger, I actually love the halo because I think it really draws the attention to the center stone. Here’s my engagement ring, it’s a diamond halo around a natural sapphire:

I have a halo becuase I think it makes my morganite stand out more.

I had my solitaire reset into a halo because I like the way halos look aesthetically. I love the extra sparkle and bling it gives my set. Mine also has an airline, so I think it showcases my diamond well. I also like it for the finger coverage it gives.

elephantear:  I don’t see halos as a way to increase the appearance of a diamond’s size. To me, it’s just a setting as any other setting and is there to complement the stone. I don’t need it to make my stone bigger. 

I chose a halo because, when I did, nobody else I knew had one. I also liked that the halo style is a vintage style, and I love vintage style rings.

I got my halo because it looked unique. Mine is a floating halo so the diamond sits a little higher than the halo. I thought it looked vintage which is kind of my style.

for some reason I’ve never been a huge fan of solitaires. I just love the look of halos. I know it is trendy right now but I don’t think I could get sick of mine.  I really wanted something a bit vintage, and vintage bands with a solitaire stone were on my list but I didn’t like them as much as a halo with a plain band. I’m going to get a vintage style wedding band.

Yeah, I don’t see them as a way to cheat on a center stone’s size. They’re pretty obviously halos. I chose mine because I like the shapes..like the two concentric circles – it’s very pleasing for me to look at and I like the symmetry. Also it’s a little vintage-y, and I love it. I also have a smaller center stone (by Bee standards – .5ct), but I love how dainty my ring looks.

The only thing I would maaaaybe change about my ring is switching to a plain band rather than a pave band. I love how halos look on a plain metal band.

I’m not going to bash or imply that other ring styles are “less than”, because that is always how these threads turn up. I love what I love because I love it.
