    We are choosing a ring at the moment too! So much fun.

    I am going with a round halo for two reasons

    1. I think a solitare looks beautiful but is a bit too plain for me

    2. Round halos really bring on the bling which I love! 

    The perfect thing about choosing a round diamond is that it can be set in many ways in the future if you like to keep up with the trends. Maybe it’s just me but I do think cushions might date a bit quicker cause they are so in at the moment

    I love my round stone in a cushion halo. It’s the best of both worlds for me. You get the overall shape of a cushion, which looked much better on my hand than round, but you get the size and sparkle of a round center stone.

    I may get some heat for this, but I sometimes find that a round stone in a round halo looks a lot like a UFO. It depends on the setting though.

    I have a round halo but I do like some cushion halos too. For round halos, I prefer the halo to be dainty so I agree with the UFO thing when the halo diamonds are too large. With cushion halos, I like them to be rounded on the edges. I’ve seen some that have too much of a boxy appearance. 

    I went with a round halo because, my other engagement ring has a princess cut diamond in a cushion halo. So I wanted something different.

    I prefer solitaires always. 🙂

    I love my cushion halo with a round stone…In My Humble Opinion it’s a little more interesting then just another round halo (although I have seen some very lovely ones), but you still get the sparkle of a round stone. I also vote for very delicate halo though regardless of which route you go.

    So the benefit of having a round diamond in a cushion halo is that you get the brilliance of the round cut diamond but still get to have the cushion shape!  I absolutely LOVE my cushion halo with round diamond.  I have gotten so many compliments on how amazingly shiny it is! Here is mine!  I have a micro pave halo

    I had the same struggle! My Fiance prefers the more traditional look so he went with the round halo. He just proposed on Aug 16! =)

    IMG_6528I believe they are all beautiful, but I chose cushion halo for my round diamond just because it seemed more interesting (visually) and less predictable.

    No matter what, just go with your heart!

    sktz:  My center stone is a cushion cut,  with a double halo around it.  I thought the stone dictated the setting?   Bought my stone first because I wanted a sapphire the color of the ocean,  and not too small,  because I’m almost 6 ft tall.

    I chose a round halo to go with my round diamond. I just like the way it looks and the way it complements my stone!

    I personally like cushion halos and have always. I think the cushion halo is a bit more modern and still has the same brilliance as a round depending on how it’s set.I also like the finger coverage of a cushion halo. Here’s mine for reference.

    I have a round with a cushion halo. Like a PP said, you get the great brilliance from a round but also the cushion look with the cushion halo. I tried to have a cushion as my main diamond but it faced up much smaller than the round and wasn’t as sparkly, so that’s why I got the cushion halo so I could still have the cushion feel.
