halos are lovely and i am sure that your stone will look great with it but i think halos are trendy and in a few years you are going to want to change your ring out again.

your solitare is classic and with that extra bling on the sides, it just adds to it.  in the long run, i would stick to your current ring.

btw, i love halos too so i decided to get a rhr with a halo to curb my desire for that style of ring.

@ddsfam:  I’d keep your ring as is. Yeah halos are trendy now, but they’re actually quite a traditional style.

I think your ring has more than enough bling… I just like it as is!! Very pretty!!

I’m all for upgrades, but I think you’ve got such a beautiful, classic set, and the size of your centre stone is so lovely on it’s own.

If you’re craving a cushion halo, I’d ask for a right hand ring as an anniversary gift.  Maybe a gemstone centre, with your birthstone, or the stone for the month you were married?

3 upgrades in five years?!  What if you just bought yourself a nice pair of shoes or something, or a right hand ring as PPs have suggested? Or even a pendant?

Plus your center stone is really big to begin with. I think if you added a halo, the ring would overwhelm your finger completely. A big stone is nice, but you don’t want it to look like you won the Superbowl or whatever. There’s something to be said for still being able to see a little bit of finger on each side…

I”m all for upgrades, but 3 in 5 years, is a little excessive to me.  But if you and your husband can swing it, sure. I personally love your ring and would never get bored with it.

I agree with others that your ring is gorgeous and classic as is! I also have several styles of rings (e-ring is emerald solitare with a setting similar to yours) and RHRs are an aquamarine in white gold with a diamond halo and a rose gold and morganite solitare in a bezel setting. I find having several rings in different styles lets me switch it up and keeps me from wanting to change my e-ring.
