    Yup, too trendy!

    Nope, halos are around for the long-haul

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

    Halos are definitely the most beautiful style ( if done well). There is a reason they are so popular! But they are a very timeless style and have been around a long time. You should go for it!

    @British_Bride – Thanks! My e-ring setting is from Eternity Diamonds, center stone from Good Old Gold; and my wedding band is from ID Jewelry.

    I have a halo RHR that I have had for about 5 years now, and I still adore it. The only reason I went with a solitaire is because I had already bought myself the diamond halo ring and wanted something different. I think halos look absolutely beautiful and delicate and they always catch my eye. There are soo many girls here who prefer classic solitaires, so you might not get objective advice.

    @abbyful:  your set is gorgeous! How was your experience with ID Jewelry? I just ordered a new setting from them. So far so good, and have heard great things about them. I want the band you have, but with all diamonds.

    I think people should just go with what they love.  If you want to change it in the future, you can.  If you still like it even after styles have changed, it will be great to think of how much time has passed since you got it and how long you have been with your SO.  “Old” is not always bad. Personally, I think it is great when rings show signs of wear and age because it is kind of a sweet reminder of how long the couple has been together. 🙂

    Yeah, come to think of it, I’ve never seen a post about certain diamond cuts (save the marquis) going out of style. For example, I never heard “will my princess look dated in 20 years?”. It’s always a fear that centers around the halo setting.

    I think that if you LOVE it today, you will most likely still love it in 20 years.

    The halo has been popular since the 1920s…. I would not fear it going out of fashion. It’s a classic ring (not ‘modern’ like rings that were popular and now out of date in the 80s and 90s) and it looks like it’s here to stay for the long haul. Besides, even if you do have a ring that was once considered ‘modern’ or ‘trendy’, if you love it, that’s what matters.

    I have a halo, and it’s perfect for me. Solitaires don’t appeal to me, but some ladies love the simple, clean lines. I wanted something with more substance to compliment my obnoxiously long fingers (great for palming a basketball. Not great for rings!) I picked a delicate, totally encrusted setting. You can’t see a speck of metal on it, and I love it that way. I also got an oval diamond, which I think makes it a little bit more unique. Anyways, I love it, my Fiance loves it, and I think that’s what matters most. As he says, “if everyone liked he same thing, the world would be a boring place!”

    Honestly I think it really just depends on the ring in particular. I didn’t pick a standard halo with platinum or white gold and diamonds. I chose a colored center stone with rose gold and very dainty diamonds in the halo and bands. It looked very vintage to me and I love that about it. Don’t worry so much about trends or what other people think of your rings. Go with what YOU like.

    Personally I am not a fan, I like much simpler styles. That being said, if you love it now, not beacuse it’s “trendy” but beacause it’s beautiful to you, then I don’t see why you’d regret it in 20 years. And if for some reason you do, 20 years from now he is due to upgrade your ring anyways!

    My grandmother’s wedding ring looks really dated. It was really popular at the time but now it shows it’s age…because it is the ring my grandfather gave her during their courthouse wedding just hours before he was shipped overseas to fight in WWII.

    So yes your ring will start to look older, it will start to be dated. But it will always be the ring that your husband gave to you along with his heart. So, you will always love it because it’s part of your love story and eventually it will become a part of you.

    @Bebealways:  You took the idea right out of my head! I was going to suggest a wrap 🙂 (I didn’t read your post but saw the pictures, I’m only assuming you are the person who suggested it)

    It’s pretty rare for me to love something one day, and hate it years down the road. I’m just not a very trendy person. So if I love something that just so happens to be REALLY hot at the moment, I won’t not get it because I fear it will one day go out of style. I realize that taste evolves, but my taste doesn’t magically change.

    I wanted a halo long before I even knew they were a trend. I’ve never wanted a solitaire.
