I have a pear halo and I love it! I inititally thought that I wanted a solitaire but it just didn’t look right on my finger. Plus I love the details and delicate look a halo brings to a ring. (excuse the bad nails)

I think you should get what you love. I have a halo engagement ring and I absolutely love it. Ten years from now it could be on top of the not-cool list and I’d still love it. Soltaire rings have never done it for me so even if DeBeers were to market them as the only acceptable ring to own, I still wouldn’t want one.
Honestly, for the most part I don’t buy into the idea of jewelry as a fashion trend–especially with engagement rings. We’re not talking about UGG boots here or Juicy Couture track suites.

Here’s one with the wedding band. Center sapphire: 1.4 carats, 6 side diamonds on e-ring + 2 on wedding = .90 carats, white & yellow 14k gold, 3 small side sapphires =.30 carats

Find a ring you lOve!You’ll love it later too! I found a ring with a small halo, and character that makes it unique rather than the same halo on a slim band. I was all about metal work and the detail of the band.

Halos have been around a lot longer than the last few decades, that’s for sure. It’s more popular now, certainly, but not a new idea.
As someone who has and will most likely continue to have a lot of disposible income, I see no problem with getting a trendy ring. When I get tired of it I’ll sell it and get a new one, most likely.
And please for the love of god don’t flame me for not being sentimental. The halo I wear is not my original ring, it’s a replacement because my fiance felt bad we couldn’t, at the time, afford a ‘better’ ring. I’d go back to wearing that vintage silver piece any time, but I wear the new one for him 🙂

Halos might be trendy, but they’re a classic style. Think if Princess Diana’s, now Kate Middleton’s ring, it’s a halo setting. I am also in love with the halo style. But no one I know has one. I don’t think you’ll regret it down the line. Get what you love!

Wasn’t Kate’s ring one that Will had inherited from Diana? I’m pretty sure it was Diana’s engagement ring as well (or at least I thought i read that somewhere). Not like she got married in the last decade! If it’s worthy of being heirloomed to a princess, I’d say the halo is fine if you want to wear it!

Halos are actually a classic style! Up until the 1880’s women wore rings with tiny seed pearl halos. Usually sapphire, ruby, or emerald center stones. Here’s an example of an amethyst ring with seed pearl halo.
Up until the 1870’s women weren’t “allowed” to wear diamonds. Diamonds were incredibly rare because the mines in Africa hadn’t yet been discovered by Europeans and diamonds were reserved for the wealthiest of men.

Yep, it was Diana’s ring! Making it a classic style!

If you love the way it looks, not beacuse it’s a trend – then I don’t see why you wont love it 10 or 20 years down the road. Beside, you can always upgrade after two decades ;p
