    Halo is pretty, but I think the pave band accentuates the center stone more than a halo does.

    Definitely prefer the first option, without the halo.

    I am biased because I have a cushion with a pave band, no halo. But I think the diamond pops more without a halo. Halos are gorgeous, don’t get me wrong, but very trendy right now and you see them all over. The first option is more timeless in my opinion so I would leave as is.

    I personally love the solitaire look.  I think it’s classic and timeless.  I’m so over this halo phase.  I feel like it’s trendy and everyone is getting them and I agree that a lot get them to make the diamond look bigger.  You have a good sized diamond.  You should show off it’s beauty, not hide it behind a setting.  Plus the solitaire looks like an e-ring while the halo looks like it could pass for a right hand ring.

     

    But, I’m biased.

    @ananeele: I totally agree with you. Adding a halo with a ring that size can possibly make it look like a RHR or cocktail ring. It’s perfect as is.

    I personally LOVE halos (and no, some of us just like them, we aren’t trying to make our center stones seem bigger). But for this particular cut I like a solitaire. I like halos on round cuts, but for square shapes a solitaire looks cleaner.

    I love love love cushion cuts, I really like the solitaire the most, but that is also because I tend to prefer simpler/delicate rings (I have really small hands).  I think once you try on settings you’ll know right away 🙂

    If you really love both looks you can do what I did and combine the two with a dropped halo. My center stone is 2.2 carats and the halo (in the shape of arches) sits just underneath it, almost like a basket. So it keeps the focus on the center stone, but still adds a bit of glam and bling! I also have diamonds on the band. IMO it’s unique and beautiful.

    Yeah I just love halos too so I voted for the halo!

    I have a halo (ultimately his decision, not mine, although I guess I really kept telling him I loved halos haha) but I think the one without the halo looks best here.

    ETA Also, if anyone said “people only get halos to make their rings look bigger” to me, I’d tell them “yeah, so it leaves a bigger mark when I punch your rude @$$ in the face with it”. The nerve of some people…

    I prefer the solitaire.  That ring is so beautiful.  I am a bit over halos, even though they are beautiful.

    I have a cushion. And I have a (I think its big). It’s a 5.5mm moissanite, then I have a 4mm on each side, then 3 2.25mm on each side. And I love how it tapers on each side.

    IMO, I think cushion cuts are the only rings that look gorgeous with (thin) halos, so I would probably go for that. 

    Its beautiful without as well, though.
