    Would your jeweler be able to let you try on halo rings?  That way you could really see it before you decide.  I mean, you’d be able to tell if you like it right?

    Tara72818 :  fwiw I LOVE your ring and think it looks amazing on you. If you do change it to a halo, will you like it? Or will it still leave you longing for something else? I would personally opt for a beautiful band to go with it to bling it up, but I’m coming from the perspective of it looking perfect on your finger. If you feel like you would be happy with a halo then by all means get it! But really think about whether that would satisfy you long term, or if you still be left wanting something more.

    Tara72818 :  Halos are one of those things that is really personal as to what you love. Some people love a chunky halo, others prefer really delicate, some people love an air line and some love a double halo.

    I think it will be really hard for a Jeweller to add a halo head to an existing ring and have it look seamless and what may suit the existing band and diamond may not be what you are after. For example if you love a chunkier halo and want that added to your ring which has a very thin and delicate pave band, the proportions may look out and not look so nice together. You won’t really know until you see it done.

    I think your best bet may be to get a setting you love and swap out your diamond into that setting. With your current engagement ring you can keep the setting and put in another gemstone of choice (maybe a birthstone or the birthstone of the month of your upcoming wedding) and wear it as a rhr.

    I do think its beautiful as is on your hand and I say that a someone who has a halo! Have you done some Google searches looking for some ring porn stack inspiration?? I’ve seen some pretty spectacular blingy stacks with an engagement ring like yours!!

    I personally think halos are the ” in thing ” so I personally wouldn’t change a Halo.. but something alittle more u might like better. 


    Classic is a better way to go since in 10-20 yrs halos won’t be in !

    I think if you were to do a halo it should be a delicate one. Check out Tiffany Soleste for some inspo!

    What if you did more of a delicate floral halo head?

    Or a new head to add some length, without being too chunky for your band?

    Sorry it’s a stock photo. But this is my ring. I got the matching wedding band. I love it and I don’t think halos are going anywhere.

    Get a jacket or a guard. This way you get the best of both worlds.

    Tara72818 :  I work in a jewelry shop and the halo head should be just as reversible as the original head you have now if you don’t love it. Would you mind sharing a photo of the profile of your ring? If it is a peg setting you should be able to remove the halo just as easily as you removed your 4 prong head.

    I would bling it up with a more glitzy wedding band. Halos take away from the center stone, which your FH probably spent a long time looking for. I’d keep it FWIW. Get a fun wedding band to go with.
