I LOVE solitaires! They are so classic & elegant! That said, this decision really depends on your personal style. how would you describe it?

I have just a plain 0.4 carat solitaire. I love that all the focus is on the main diamond, but had it been in budget I probably would have done a halo because I love them.

I have a halo. When my Fiance and I were looking, we went into a couple of jewelers having requested that they have certain styles/sizes available to try on and look at. When we arrived at one jeweler, she had everything there for us to look at and try on, but she had asked if I was set on a halo for sure. I really wasn’t, so she brought out a bunch of other styles to try on. One was a solitaire, and while it was beautiful and elegant, it just didn’t SPARKLE the way the halo seemed to. The center stone sparkles, and then the little diamonds around the stone have their own sparkle and I just LOVED the way it caught my eye everytime I moved my finger even just a little. That was the moment I was sure I wanted the halo. My friends have solitaires, and they are sparkly, but I get complimented all the time by them about how it just sparkles SO much.

I love halos 🙂 I think they’re beautiful and elegant. I have a double halo, so clearly I love halos!

teebee14:  You’ve narrowed it down to two that you’re torn between.  Why not let future hubs pick from there & surprise you?

If you must pick, I vote for the solitaire.

teebee14:  I was also stuck between a solitaire and a halo. I ended up choosing the halo because I like how the setting kind of “hides” the prongs that hold the stone in place, and I didn’t like seeing a lot of metal around the diamond. It’s totally personal preference, though – both are beautiful!

I’m super partial to halos lol. I have a .75 ct center diamond with just under 2 tcw. I love the delicate halo and the split shank, and how my fiance incorporated all the detail into the setting
