    You stated you like to change your jewelry from simple to elaborate, so I suggest keeping the solitaire bc you can change up the bands. You can get a fancy, blingy one and a simple one and switch them up depending on your mood also you can get more bands to celebrate anniversaries and births of children.

    Keep the solitaire and spend your money on a fantastic band.

    Keep the solitare! Get some fun bands so you can change it up.

    Mysecretdiary:  I’m in the camp of keeping the solitaire. To me it’s an elegance timeless piece. Yes halos are in now. But who knows in a few years may not be. You also mentioned your fiancé while okay with it would have been happier with you liking the original setting. How do you know he didn’t spend all of this time planning this beautiful ring for you? Are you sure you didn’t hurt his feelings by telling him you wanted to completely change what he got you?

    Mysecretdiary:  I’ve always loved halos and my husband upgraded my ring from a solitaire to a halo before our wedding. (my grandmother has had a halo ring since before I was born and it’s what I have always thought was the perfect style, only IMO of course) you said you like classic with a twist. I’d suggest a halo with plain shanks (that’s what mine is) it looks like a large solitaire from a distance and up close has beautiful detail. So it’s classic, like a solitaire, but still has enough detail to make it different from all the solitaire in your city. I’m gonna post a picture of my ring and my grandmothers ring. Both are halos, hers is an antique style with 10 prongs. Good luck! 

    You can also buy a rose gold band to get a mix metal look. I wear two bands sometimes and one is yellow and one is white gold.

    Mysecretdiary:  Thanks! I’m already married and I don’t wear a wedding band with my ring. It’s easier for me to just wear one ring, and my ring already has a wider band.

    If you’re going to get an eternity band, I would suggest either a 1/2 or 3/4 eternity so that you can resize it if necessary!

    I do generally like non-over the top halos, but there is something about these two that are Odd. They seem kinda awkward so personally I’m not a fan of either. Normally I would vote for round stone cushion halo but instead I say keep the solitare.

    MrsBuesleBee and am on Team Solitaire. It is so classy and elegant. Your outfits, hair, makeup, nails, and personality will always reflect your style mood through the future years but the solitaire will remain constantly and beautifully timeless. I intend on getting a decently sized one to make up for the fact there isn’t a halo going around it to make it look sparklier from afar. I am also planning to dress up my solitaire later with infinity diamond bands, both rose gold and white gold and just have fun with stacking.

    I would choose the white gold cushion halo. I love rounds inside cushion halos! That’s what I have, after all! 

    I changed my solitaire to a halo and I am so glad I did!

    Bridey77:  I agree with you completely. I thought rose gold was pretty, but completely fell in love with it once I learned more about it from my jeweler and tried it on. I don’t think it’s particularly trendy at all when it comes to wedding jewelry. Maybe in theory, but not in real life. I don’t often see it. The cushion halo would make it the most feminine, delicate, ornate piece ever!
