I absolutely love halos, and considered one at first. But really I got more worried about all the little stones needing maintenance so decided I’d like a solitaire and band for my wedding set. I have solved this dilemma by deciding that I will someday get beautiful gemstone halo RHR and have the best of both worlds! 🙂

They definitely are trendy but I think they’re around for the long haul!

I LOVE halos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They look amazing and are way more intricate and interesting than a single stone, imo.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one for a second 😉 Actually, I did, hehe! Round double halo. Sort of a vintage flower design. It’s my forever ring!!

And you know, I remember thinking that princess cut stones were so 1990s but these days I think they are another classic like the round brilliant. It just depends onwhich shape one prefers. In regard to halos, I think because they existed back in the 1930s they are more ‘timeless’.
If the yellow gold marquise comes back another time, it will be timeless too 🙂

@Lily_of_the_valley: I think that halo rings are beautiful and are a new classic.
On the downside, they are VERY trendy right now and will definately “date” your ring in the future, but really, the only setting that isn’t dated is a solitaire on a plain, thin band.

I think that Princess cuts are still VERY popular, I see a lot of them here on WB.

most people dont because of the emotional attachment actually.. it nostalgic to look at something that means so much to you as the years go on. ive seen so many old ladies with period jewelry that no matter what, its their favourite ring because of what it represents! cherish your choice.

I love my halo – Its been 2 1/2 years since I got it and I’m still head over heels for it. I didn’t even realize it was a trend, it was just what I really wanted. Personally I didn’t know anyone with a Halo until after I had mine. right now I’m 9 months pregnant and haven’t been able to wear it for about a month or so and i’m so sad!
If you love it get it!
here is mine 🙂 Halo Cushion cut

Funny, I didn’t realize it was a ‘trend’ either! I just liked them. As a mid-thirties bride, ALL of my married friends have solitares. I really wanted something different!

I had no idea it was a trend. I just love the ring and the setting. I get compliments on mine all the time and 99% of the people think its vintage. I love it!! My FH said I can upgrade in 10-20 years, but I’ve requested a vacation instead. Its my forever ring. Good luck and go with your gut!

My right hand ring is a halo, topped off with a stone from the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. I had to replace the actual ring and did so many years ago with a halo ring. I have never, ever, once regretted it. It will never go out of style because it is so very classy.
I am older than most on this site. It’s fun to look at jewellry from different era’s. My late Mom’s ring set is so much different that mine. They married in the 50’s and although my sister got it when she passed, it’s fun to remember how much she loved it.
My antique stone is from my great grandmother. I also sit on her couch (been recovered a number of times. Embrace the different times, it will eventually return and you will be ahead of things!

If you love it now you will love it in the future.
This is what I voted for.
We have an oval halo being custom made; I obviously do not think they are over-rated.
I personally don’t think halo rings are trendy – I know at least 10 girls who have gotten engaged in the past 12 months and none of them have a halo ring, they are all solitaires, or solitaires with diamonds on the band. Halo rings have been around for a long time, and remind me of royalty and glamour.
You said “I can’t ever imagine myself not loving the ring I picked“. If you’ve picked it for the right reasons and the fact that the style is currently ‘trendy’ has played no part in your decision, I don’t see why you would ever not love it.
I decided I wanted a princess cut solitaire and then changed my mind to an oval halo (I had never seen a halo before making my decision). I have moments I want to change the ring, but a halo is different and unique, at least where I come from.

I think that while they are very popular right now, if you love it you should feel good about it. Years down the road there is no way to know how you will feel. They are lovely.
