Before the halo

This is my ring after a halo upgrade for my anniversary.

I thought just like you about halos originally. But then I realized life is too short not to get what you like because you want to be “different”. There is nothing new under sun. Besides my set has multiple rings. I felt my cushion center lost its shape when you look at my ring from further away it looked like a round center. I thought the halo would give more sparkle and definition. So I changed it. And I’m so in love with my ring now.

If it makes it any easier, my ring is essentially what you’d end up with if you add a halo to your radiant.

I agree with the other poster- your ring is absolutely stunning as it is and the centre diamond is so striking that the effect could be lost in a halo.

I changed my platinum round solitaire to a pave band and halo as I thought I wanted a more flashy ring and totally went off the look as it was too generic and almost too blingy. I’m actually having it reset into a custom made ring now with a plain rose gold shank and a sleek bezel white gold halo so a bit of bling but not overkill. It all depends what aesthetic you want to go for, after having all the bling bling I decided I really prefer a more clean, modern and distinctive sparkle, but there’s no right or wrong with these things. Go with your gut 🙂

vanessawashington338 :  holy halo girl!! That is such a beautiful stack! Your ring is beautiful with and without the halo, but the halo really changes the look and stands out!

twright4770 :  yes my ring is a peg head setting so I just replaced the middle with a halo peg head.

twright4770 :  I changed my solitaire to a halo and love it even if “sooo many ladies have them” or it “minimizes and/or clutters” my center stone. Guess I just have bad taste! Enjoy your ring!
