    As with all things that become very trending, they can look “dated” after a few years.  For example I had a one shouldered wedding gown 4 years ago, and I am sure that it now looks “dated.”  But whether or not something becomes a fad, trend, dated, old, what have you, shouldn’t matter.  All that matters is what you love at that moment in time.

    I also think that an e-ring is a lot more then just an accessory.  With the meaning behind it, one should not get bored of it so quickly.

    So what if they look ‘tacky’ in a couple of years? Who cares if a ring looks dated? Even different styles of solitares can look dated after a while. When you look at your mom or grandma’s ring, don’t you think ‘wow that looks really old and represents the time she got married’? Yep, I do. I love my halo and I probably won’t upgrade. Get something you love! That’s the point.

    I originally wanted a halo when we first started discussing rings, but when we went shopping and I actually tried rings on, I fell head over heels in love with the classic solitaire round cut style. I tried on halos and liked them – but I kept coming back to solitaires.

    at the end of the day – it’s your ring! you’ll be wearing it for the rest of your life and you want to love it. so choose something you love! don’t worry about what may or may not look dated down the track because everything will at some point and then at another point it will no doubt be back in fashion again 😂 have you tried rings on yet? like me, you might find you love a different style in person, or it might solidify your love for a halo.

    I was not set on a halo, but came across a double halo for an oval setting and that baby sparkled just right for me. I cant imagine thinking it will look tacky to me years to come.

    Guess what? By the time your ring looks dated, you’ll probably be more concerned with your face looking dated lol. Get what you like and stop worrying about how other people will perceive it.

    I think they might look dated in a few years, but so will anything else popular right now?? Just part of life! Styles come and go. I’m not a big fan, but I do like vintage so maybe in 50 years I’ll like them? :-p

    Yes, but so what?

    No, not everybody.

     

    Bling!

    sillylittlebee:  If you’re worried about getting bored with it and you usually do get tired of things, I’d recommend getting something more traditional and timeless.  My Darling Husband picked out my halo all by himself and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  Also, I don’t care if anyone else thinks it looks tacky.  It’s the ring Darling Husband wanted me to have and it’s the only one I want.  Try some on and see what makes you feel great. 

    ETA: If you try halos on and you’re still worrying about those things, I’d say they aren’t for you.  I didn’t ring shop myself but I’d guess you’d have that moment where you know this is “The One”.  Best of luck!

    Trends come and come and then come back again.

    Think about marquise diamonds.  5 years ago, I think most people would have cringed at the thought of having one.  Myself included.  But I have been some unbelievably beautiful marquise rings lately that I would gladly wear.  They’re come back.  I think a simple halo isn’t ever going to be out of style- there are plenty of antique settings that have halos (in sapphires and emeralds no less).

    sillylittlebee:  halos have been popular for several years now, and will likely continue to be for a while yet, but yes, I imagine that a decade or two from now, they will look quite “dated”. as pp have said, sometimes this is nice – it marks the time in your life when you chose each other.

    as far as being tacky goes, I personally find anything that attempts to make a stone look bigger or flashier to be “tacky” – halo, double halo, illusion setting, moissy/asha/cz in a large size. . .I have a pave band, and to be perfectly honest, that’s even a little more blingy than I thought I’d go for, so take that with a grain of salt. 🙂

    I personally don’t care at all about whether or not my ring may “be dated” and go “out of style” in a few years. I’m sure my dress will go out of style eventually, as well. My ring is my ring and I will love it and cherish it forever, as it was an amazing gift from the man of my dreams. 

    If my ring is eventually seen as tacky/out of style I don’t care. It’s perfect for me. Aquamarine center stone, diamond halo, and diamonds on the band. Rose gold. It’s everything I want. Traditional options are pretty, but just not my style. I tried solitaires, but just couldn’t get the thought of a halo out of my head.

    I have a halo and love it. The halo on my ring is really rather small and delicate. I knew from the start I didn’t want a diamond, I loved the halos becuase they make the gemstones stand out so much more. I love it. I don’t care if people think it is tack or outdated. My ring is for me and my Fiance. No one else. I love it now and I’ll love it forever.

    I agree with the comments above. Trendy will become dated, and eventually vintage. Do what makes you feel the happiest. What do you think about more vintage looking, chunkier halos? I find that the “trendy” ones today are ofted in some sort of (micro)pave, with a pave band and a much bigger center stone. So if you want to get away from that “trendy” look, perhaps a vintage halo could be an alternative? 🙂
