I could stare at Bubbalah all day, too......I have 2 halo rings to share here.
My Cartier ring.
and of course Bubbalah as she is now. In a 1950s (I was told) halo. Still shot taken from a video.
All so beautiful @Catmom. Tell me about that pendant - most stunning!!!Love this thread and all of the gorgeous rings shown! 99.9999999% of my rings are haloed rings, lol. Here are my diamond rings...
2.52ct FLY rounded-corner radiant
.81 ct FLY Marquise
.82 cts round in a Calla setting
@KristyDarling just wanted to come back here and say I am drooling all over your ring (again haha)...this is to me one of the prettiest halos around. So delicate and feminine and graceful and just a show stopper. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Of course if you are tired of it or bored of it there is no right or wrong but I wanted to chime in again with how much I LOVE your setting (and diamond of course!).Here's mine! 3.14 ct cushion (I color) in hand-forged halo setting by BE. My finger/knuckle size grew over the last few months from 3.5 to 4.25, despite no weight gain. (Weather has been cool so it's not heat puffing. Gotta love aging!)
I enjoy this ring but sometimes grow tired of the halo. I've been toying with the idea of taking it out of the halo and putting it in a milgrained bezel, with my pear side stones also in bezels (.5ct each). Or, I might just make it a simple 3-stone without bezels, in yellow gold maybe.
OH MY @Queenie60 I can't wait to see how this version turns out... I LOVE my oval version!And this one is in the making. 8.26X8.26 strawberry garnet - antique cushion cut by Jeff White. Currently being set by CVB in a platinum halo. Size 6 for a right hand ring. Waiting patiently.........
Aww, Missy, thanks! This ring does still take my breath away, but since I got it my aesthetic has morphed while my ring has stayed the same...KWIM?? I find myself gravitating towards the Deco and Baroque halo styles that CvB is known for -- I just love the detailed metalwork of those styles! My dream is to save up enough to work with Caysie on a design for my cushion!@KristyDarling just wanted to come back here and say I am drooling all over your ring (again haha)...this is to me one of the prettiest halos around.

What you're describing would be a halo in my book. "Frame" is a perfect way to describe that type of halo (which I personally love!).What constitutes a halo? Does it have to be the same design all of the way around? Do the stones have to be symmetrical?
My pear is being reset into an intricate frame design that goes all the way around, but the stones that will surround it vary in type and size. I’m not sure it would be considered a halo or what I should call it.
Aw, thank you so much! The CER is 1.5 carats , my ring size is 4 but the ring itself is 4.5 so its a tad loose on me but I figure during summer, my fingers may swell but thats if we get any sun in Bay Area...haha..Kuriso, how large is your center stone? The proportions are very nice on your finger.
