I usually hate airlines but your halo is exquisite! Changing my mind about airlines, it’s that gorgeous

I like no halo but does it worth having it remade?

OP, both are gorgeous and equally stunning but it seems like you get a reset often enough and aren’t 100 percent happy with whichever reset you do and then wistfully compare what you have to what you want/had. I wouldn’t reset it again to a solitaire because I think you will encounter the same issue with your desire for more finger coverage and then look wistfully to your current halo size and want to change it back. I think you should sit tight for a while and save up for a larger diamond solitaire that you can interchange with your current engagement ring depending on your ring  mood.

Heidibrooke : with your most recent post to me, I really think you should save the money that you’d spend towards the reset and put it towards  purchasing a completely separate princess solitaire. Two rings you love is always better than one!! 😉

There is a noticeable size difference between the two and I think there’s a good chance you will experience shrinkage if you switch back to a solitaire. I agree with pp’s suggestion of saving for another solitaire.

I would love to see the halo tight around your centre stone without an airline and with claw prongs 😍

It is perfect as a solitaire, and that is a beautiful stone. But if you need it to look bigger, then have the halo.

I think it’s striking as a solitaire! However, if you think it looks odd and too slender, perhaps you could stack an additional band for better proportion 🙂

I say that of halo or solitaire, neither is the right choice for you. You really want a larger stone. Nothing wrong with that. Save your money and forget a new setting. It’s not going to work.

I prefer the solitaire.

I prefer the solitaire but I would probably keep it as is since you paid for it and it seems like you’re having trouble committing. I think once you commit to it either way you’ll stop obsessing over the “right” choice. They are both beautiful rings so you really can’t go wrong.

I think you are going to have regrets again if you re-set from the halo to a solitaire.  It is definitely going to cut down on your coverage.  I am admittedly biased because I have an oval halo.  I wonder if there is anything they can do with the setting to reducethe airline?

I have a tiny airline, only visible if I look close to the side, and claw prongs.
