MEAN and unecessary. That is someone’s ring, that they own, that they look at everyday. How would you feel if someone criticized the workmanship from PICTURES of your ring. That’s completely cruel. Who are you?
OP – I don’t usually love halos, but oval halos have really caught my eye lately. Yours is unreal amounts of beautiful and so elegant. I do love the look of the solitaire, howver going back and fourth is not only expensive, but I think if it were me, I may never be able to make my mind up. Do you think that it would be a permanent change if you were to go back to a solitaire, or after 5 years would you miss the halo? Maybe then you unmount your halo, put it into a new solitaire and keep the halo for later? Hahah, actually that’s a sweet idea. I might even pop a moissanite in there if it was me and just change it up when I feel like it. Attention Fiance… I need a backup mount for when the mood strikes.
I think at the end of the day, do what you love…. and who cares what a bunch of strange people on the internet think. What is going to “spark joy”?

I love the oval with the halo! Beautiful ring regardless of which style you choose!

You’re awesome, thanks! That was my exact thoughts about keeping the halo head in case I change my mind again, lol. It’s crazy, I know.
I’m leaning toward keeping it in the halo, for now. I’m too unsure to make the decision just yet.
I have a round diamond in a halo on my right hand, set it rose gold, and I’ve even thought about having my oval diamond set in rose gold to match. It has just been a thought in the back of my mind though, nothing I could justify spending money on right now.

I personally don’t like airlines in a halo. If you want to keep the halo look, have it redone so that the halo is flush with your oval diamond. The solitaire is pretty too, but you will definitely have shrinkage issues coming from a halo

Ok, I get it. My halo is sub-par, poorly made, with a horrific airline. Now, I remember why I left this board years ago.
Thank you to those of you that actually answered my question without being extremely rude.

In reference to sunburn
’s opinion (which is what OP asked for of everyone), I wouldn’t discount what she said. If you’re familiar with her posts, Sunburn knows jewelry, and she’s one of the most knowledgeable active members on the Bee. There’s no reason to attack her because you’re overly-sensitive to her opinion. Personally, I would consider her opinion, and even go so far as to ask friends in the industry if they agree, because I’m no expert when it comes to settings, much like most others on these boards. If I loved the setting as is, I would simply ignore her opinion—no harm done.

I think the solitare setting you had looks gorgeous on you and with your stone honestly.

She’s no expert if she doesn’t know the difference between pave and shared prong settings.
I asked for opinions, not a critique of my diamond or my halo, or even my previous setting. Just a simple “solitaire” or “halo” was all that was needed.
I didn’t need her rude remarks and I certainly don’t need yours either. Don’t waste your time. No one was “attacked”, possibly you’re being too sensitive and throwing around words that aren’t necessary. She was called out by myself and several others. Her post dripped with sarcasm and it’s not cool.

You’re very defensive about this halo. Even you yourself said you DIDNT WANT AN AIRLINE but they made it with one anyways, and told you they weren’t able to fix it. You yourself noticed how poorly it was made right off the bad, don’t get mad at other people for thinking the same thing. TBH your old post sounds like you’ve just convinced yourself to like it, even though it wasnt what you wanted or paid for.

You’re childish. I do not have an issue with my halo. I said I ended up loving the airline. Can you read?
You need to go back to junior high, seriously.
My ring is not poorly made. Lol. I’m not playing your games, sweetie. You’ve come too late to try pull that childish garbage with me. Move along, jelly belly nelly.

Goodness gracious, you really are sensitive.
Post # 58
she’s not being sensitive. She’s standing up for herself to the several bees that have made unnecessarily rude and disparaging remarks regarding her ring!!!
TBH though, I’m not shocked by which bees decided to be nasty mean girls. They seem to participate in that type of behaviour on a lot of threads. 🙄

I’m not offended in the least. I’m a little surprised that anyone would think it is perfectly acceptable to insult someone’s wedding ring. All in the name of entitlement of opinion.
I love my ring. I loved it as a solitaire and I love it in the halo I have. I’ve worn it in the halo for 6 years, thought it might be nice to switch it back. That’s all.
Overall, I received some good feedback, until the entitled crowd showed up. Some are trolls, no doubt. That’s to be expected on a forum or any type of social media.
Look at my wedding date. I’ve been married 17 years. I’m a nurse, and mother of four. I’m blessed and thankful. I try to be polite and respectful of others, but let’s face it, not everyone was raised that way.
Perhaps, you are too sensitive. Some like to dish it out but can’t take it.
To those who understood my question and gave a respectful opinion, thank you. Your thoughts and ideas were well received.

Thank you, well said. I had a strong suspicion that these “bees” were known for this type of behavior. There are a few in every group, forum, etc.
Thank you for taking a stand. I hope you see this before they delete this thread, lol. You know it’s coming.
