    I think the stone from his mum’s ring is kind of the most important part of it so if you wouldn’t use that, I’d stick with the (beautiful!!) solitaire. I love both, but the halo looks much like any other with out that stunning yellow stone!

    @allyfally:  Why are you changing your ring? The one you already have is beautiful!

    For me I would go for the halo. This is partly because it’s the same style as the stand-in FI bought for me just after he proposed so I am biased 😉 but I also think it has great history being his mum’s ring. I agree with the PP that the yellow stone looks great but I think if you switched it for another bright colour it would still be fab. Just be sure your FI’s mom is ok with you changing it though before you accept it.

    I thought you were going with a solitare because you didnt want a ring you would have to keep replacing stones in the halo or maintain as much?

    id say stick with the solitare.  It will be beautiful and simple! 🙂

    I still vote for the solitaire with the blue stone. I personally love halos, as I have one myself, but that blue stone is simply stunning! The halo ring is beautiful but it looks like a RHR to me.

    I’m all about sentimental voting… I chose halo simply for the fact that the ring was his mother’s. Once you dip it, replace the missing topaz and choose a stone for the center that makes it yours – it will be like having a piece of yourself and him all in one ring.  I think it’s lovely.

    That being said – I prefer solitaire styles for myself… but you’re asking for you not me 🙂

    I actually love the first ring in the setting it already is in… I have a solitaire myself, but I really love that “different” setting!

    However, if the choice is between the blue stone in a typical solitaire setting, or his mom’s ring with some changes to make it “yours”… I’d go with the halo. As someone else said, once the changes are done to make it more yours, you’ll have a perfect blend of both of you with the perfect amout of sentimentality. 🙂

    @allyfally:  What a bummer about that setting. 🙁 It’s so unique and lovely! But totally understand about comfort and keeping it clean! I do love the blue stone…. can you get a blue stone (same color) to replace the yellow in his mom’s ring? 🙂

    I’d go with the ring that’s your style.  It sounds like his mom’s ring, while lovely, isn’t totally your style.  You’re not a fan of the yellow, which would totally alter the look of the ring, plus white topaz isn’t quite durable enough for long-term everyday wear.

    @allyfally:  I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems with your ring.:( It sounds like your heart is with the blue solitaire so maybe you should pick that one? It is a gorgeous colour.
