    This is my 1.0ct pear solitaire. My pave goes 3/4 around and I don’t find it irritating at all! Good luck finding your perfect ring!

    msbtobe :  I have a halo and I love it. My finger size is a 4.75, and the carat of the center stone is .75 but the total carats of the ring is a little over 1.0. I love my ring and find the side stones to be very comfortable. I remember when I first got it, it rubbed for the first day or two which worried me but after that it was comfortable and I hardly notice it! It’s also very durable because I have NOT been gentle with my hands and have not lost a stone yet ๐Ÿ™‚

    msbtobe :  I love halos so of course I am biased.  However, my thin band has completely bent out of round so I’m really leery of thin pave bands now.  My ring is from Costco and believe it or not, I can return it so I think that’s what I’m going to do and get a plain shank halo elsewhere as they don’t sell any.

    Have you considered a plain shank halo?

    I agree that the tapered baguettes are another good alternative to the pear style! It’s simple and low maintanence but adds some extra sparkle when you’re moving your hand around ๐Ÿ™‚ No matter what you choose I’m sure it’ll be beautiful!

    Since you are unsure I recommend the solitaire.

    I am a fan of both halo and solitaire pears. Mine is a .80 pear with stacked bands.

    I have had my ring for over 2 years. I love solitaire ring, and it is very comfortable to wear.

    I have a 0.5ct pear in a 0.33 halo/pave band so I’m massively biased here. Our jewellers advised we have the ring cleaned and “serviced” annually so that he could check over the prongs in the band to prevent any loss of diamonds. So far so good though! 

    I think a solitaire setting is so timeless and elegant but I personally couldn’t resist the sparkle of my halo. 

    Have you tried all 3 styles on? You might have a gut feeling when you see it on your own hand.

    hope you find your dream ring, bee!
