I am considering getting my engagement ring diamond which is a cushion cut reset in a halo setting. Im kind of anxious to do it yet know at some point that I will want to upgrade my diamond to be a bit bigger. I've spoken to my fiance about this and he is ok with it. So I guess my question would be reset with my diamond now, or wait till I get the slightly bigger diamond I am lusting after and then go for halo?! Opinions please! :smile:

Wait. Don't spend money on a reset if you're planning on upgrading

Ditto. The halo setting will be wasted if you upgrade the stone later. Get the rock then bling it out after!

Unless, you want a gemstone RHR in that same size. Then you can pop a gemstone in there when you get your new upgrade.... If your upgrade is years away and you really yearn for a halo this might be a good option.

Good advice ladies, thanks! The upgrade that I want isn't so crazy, just half a carat more than I have now! So I think it won't be that far off - so I should just wait till I can get the bigger rock and the halo setting! thanks! ;)

Yea definitely do not do it til you're done with the upgrades bec most haloes are sized to the stone.

I agree! Wait and get the upgrade and halo at the same time. I love love love halos! I tried to get my stone set in a halo but my jeweler doesn't carry any that fit. :sad:

Thanks yes I will wait to get it all done at once. Why waste money on a setting now when I will eventually get a bigger stone and will have to reset then! Can't wait!!!!!

Thanks Contessa! ;) Yes I dont believe I would have any regrets! And BTW your ring is gorgeous!

I would wait for the upgrade too. Could you post pics of your ering? I'm a sucker for a good cushion cut, and I love halo settings for cushion cut stones :P

Hi Ladies,

Sooo, I'm in need of some advice. I want to do a halo style for my engagement ring soon. Wondering if I should do a halo style on my current stone, do you think I will achieve a significant look or wait for the possible upgrade on my sotne before I halo?

My current engagement ring is the 3 stone with Cushion cut center and 2 princess sides. But as I have discussed with my fiance I might want a halo style as attached. I will want it to look pretty much like the attached picture with halo, so wondering if it makes most sense to wait to when we can upgrade my stone to a bit bigger size?


Thanks for your advice...:smile:
