    Sick with 1 halo.

    It’s such a large ring to start with and I think a double halo would be too much.

    I like double halos but in your case, stick with one halo since your diamond is gigantic to begin with.

    I don’t like single halos, and I despise doubles.  You have such a beautiful ring, why detract from your center stone?  If you’re going to do a halo, at least stick with one.

    Love your stone.  I think a single halo will be beautiful, especially if you add the sidestones too.  Post when you get it!

    I have an Oval halo, and I only like double halos with yellow center stones, not sure why…

    I would go with one halo as you are getting sidestones too. I think it would be overkill to have both. You can always have the jeweller create two drawings/computer images and then decide.

    I’m getting a double halo myself and I love it. I’ve tried on tons of rings, I’ve tried on single halos, I’ve tried on solitares, I’ve tried antique looking rings and I always go back to the double halo. 

    I’d recommend trying on a few and seeing if you like the look of them on your finger. It’s not for everybody, most of my friends don’t like it and I’ve become used to just taking their opinions and replying “I’m glad we all have such different tastes because I love it.”  

    Can I just also add that it irks a little when people assume you want the double halo to make the stone look bigger? Sure it does that, but I loved the .31 ct Soleste from Tiffany’s, I loved the 1.4 ct from chain store. I just love the style. 

    i don’t think people who got mossys on this the bee got them to try and trick people into thinking it’s a diamond. They all have their different reasons. It was their choice. I’m not a fan. 

    Cant we just say we don’t like something without disparaging the people who do like it?

    @katy13:  I really like double halos, provided they are small and pretty. Some I’ve seen have huge melee and end up looking bad. I love the Tiffany soleste, for example, especially with a yellow center diamond or a pink diamond halo. But I think with yours I would probably stick to a single halo. So jealous your dad is a bench jeweler!
