Upgraded stone to a halo and regretted it?

@vanessawashington338 : Ok, so this might be a weird question, but how do you bend your finger? I have a 5mm band on my engagement ring and have basically decided that it would double as a wedding ring because of the width (in addition to the look) because my finger feels like I can’t move it if I have 7mm of ring on it – so 5mm engagement ring and 2mm band.

@bumblebug I have no problem bending my finger. Maybe my fingers are longer than yours. I don’t know the mm size of my bands. I wish I could give you a better answer

@vanessawashington338 That might be the case. My hands are annoyingly stubby (gloves are always too long). I also hate sleeves that aren’t stretchy or tight pants, so it might be entirely in my head…

I’ve seen some truly stunning halos around here and in rl.   I think they’re  gorgeous when done well, and every once in a while I think maybe I should reset my stone in a halo for more finger coverage.  Then I catch sight of my beautiful, sparkly pave band solitare and I remember that it’s my dream ring and exactly what I wanted.  

Nothing against halos, I just prefer to let my diamond be the star of the show.

I love your ring  just as it it . I dont think adding a halo is ‘upgrading’ anyway, its just  changing it to something else.

I prefer  the classic beauty of a solitaire every time , though  there are some lovely  haloed rings around on this board.

twright4770 :  good on you for seeing the humour in your behaviour….for a minute there i thought you were “that” girl….and noone wants to be her….sticking with your solitaire sounds like the right thing to do….glad you got your answer

I’ve never added a halo because I already know I’ll regret it. There are too many stones (for me) which makes the ring appear too busy. I prefer the simpler lines of a solitaire, which I find makes for a more elegant ring, easier on the eyes. Your ring is lovely just as it is imo.

I would normally say NO to adding a halo but in your case, i think it would really give you some added finger coverage and enhance the centre stone.

At my old company, there was a lady, a doctor’s wife, who was classy in every way. Always looked perfect, clothes immaculate, super classy personality, not flashy, soft spoken and confident. That is definitely not me in quite a few ways, but I loved her wedding set. Simple yellow gold with a diamond solitaire of about a carat. It was gorgeous, understated, elegant, just perfect to me. Yes, they could’ve afforded whatever. But chose something timeless. 

I don’t dislike halos, but I wouldn’t want one. I prefer the clean, simple look of a solitaire. I did have a half carat Round Brilliant in a halo on a plain WG band, it just wasn’t for me. Ended up returning it.
