    Yup, too trendy!

    Nope, halos are around for the long-haul

    If you love it now, you will love it in the future!

    Only you know the answer to that question. 

    Are you a trend-seeking fiend or are you someone who wants the ring because it is the symbol of your engagement? 

    Who cares what happens 20 years from now?

    I love my halo. It looks very similar to my great grandma’s ring from the 20s.

    @Lily_of_the_valley:  Do you like it because it’s trendy, or do you like it because you like it and it’s you? If you like it partially because it’s trendy, you might feel it’s “out of style” later, but if you like it just because you “like the look” then you’ll probably continue to like it.

    I have an unusual looking ring… it needs a custom band made even. I tried posting a picture of it and asked about how much a custom band that would wrap around it would be, and a couple people said that I should try for something more classic, because it might be stylish now but later I might regret it.

    It’s not even trendy now! haha. At least as far as I know. I like it because I like it, and I like weird things… I always have, and I don’t see that changing so…

    If you like it just because you like the style, you probably always will like it. If you like it just because you’ve been overly-exposed to it and it’s grown on you, you might regret it.

    Did you love the halo look the very first time that you saw a ring like that? Or were you kind of “Meh” about it?

    I know that halos were around years ago but they have come back big time! I think they are GORGEOUS and I loved some rings that had them but I chose not to get one because I was afraid of this very thing. Sooooooooo many girls have them that I know and I just worry that it will totally be the trend of today. It may not end up being the “yellow gold and marquise cut” ring of the 2000s but we won’t know until 10-20 years from now…

    Never have I heard negative talk about halos being trendy until I came on the Bee.  I love my ring, which is a small halo, because I think it looks timeless and almost vintage glam.  I’ve also heard several people say that to me.  So I don’t know what all the trendy talk is about.  There are halos I dislike and halos I do like.  It’s just one small design feature.  I think if you like it now, you’ll like it then.

    In 1980 my brother got his future wife a halo engagement ring.  They were called clusters back then.  I’ve never liked clusters no matter what “fancy” name they stick on them.

    @Lily_of_the_valley:  Yeah they’re popular now, but they are a classic style. I think anything looks dated eventually. As long as you love it, isn’t it a good thing if your ring eventually shows you’ve been married for 20+ years? That’s quite an achievement.

    I am planning on getting a halo. I’ve tried on solitaires and as much as I love them in pictures, they just don’t wow me in real life. They’re also EVERYWHERE.

    Obviously these are personal issues. I’ve never gotten the halo trend and no offense to those who love them, but I think they all pretty much look the same. They’re blingy but In My Humble Opinion uninspired. It’s gotten so comon that when I see a post with ring porn I often skip looking because it’ll probably be another halo.

    I love jewelry and especially rings. When it came time for us to think about a ring(s) I knew I wanted something totally unique. I searched online to find styles and my (now) DH thought that so many rings were “boring”. I loved tension settings and ultimately found a designer out of state who made stunning pieces with a tension set look but more securely made. He had over 200 rings in his online gallery. He never makes the exact same ring twice. My husband often looks at my rings and tells me he never thought we could find something so beautiful and we designed it ourselves.

    Wow, I had no idea halo rings were trendy, until I read this thread. Guess I don’t really keep up with fashion trends, I just pick what I like, which is why I’ve picked this black diamond halo ring from Zales (http://www.zales.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11844950&kpc=1' defer='defer). The price is right, and I love the design. I can’t imagine ever not loving it.  I say go with what you love, regardless of what’s in style right now.

    To me halos are a modern art deco. Art deco still lives. I think halos will stay more as a timeless piece, they are a classic. In reality halos have been around for decades, just with different styling and names. IMO.

    However there are some more “trendy” styles of halos out.

    Aghh I had no idea that halos are considered trendy! I have a halo and I never even realized they have ever not been in or out of style. I guess I think of rings are really personal and therefore, exempt from trends.

    FWIW, I love my halo, and it’s kind of Princess Diana-y, and for that reason, I’m pretty sure it’s timeless Tongue Out

    @vorpalette:  This is exactly it!

    Halos are not new.  They’ve been around for a long long time.  People are noticing them more now as they become more popular…but correct me if I’m wrong, Princess Diana’s engagement ring (from 1980!) was a halo and is obviously now being worn by Kate.

    It’s hard to argue against their staying power when you see how long halos have actually been around.

    They are beautiful! I have a solitaire, but have considered upgrading to a Tacori halo for some time now 🙂

    You know when FH and I went to look at rings, i didn’t care what was popular or trendy. I just wanted something that said, hey this is me and what our love represents. I knew I wanted a halo not because it was trendy but because it simply took my breath away. I tried on solitaries and three stone rings but they weren’t me.  Who cares if it is trendy. Or might make you look dated. Honestly, I don’t see that happening but to each their own. I still think my halo looks classic and not overwhelming. If you both love it, thats all that matters.
