So I was curious and started doing some looking for photos from PSers who had gone from a solitaire to a halo. Here''s what I found so far! Post yours if you have them!

****

This is a comparison that Aljdewey did a few years ago to help out another poster. It shows a .75ct, a 1.24ct (center of three stone) and a .75ct halo on her ring finger. The first and last are actually pendants.

Metro also posted a comparison of her .52 halo and her .93ct solitaire together.

Here is rainydaze solitaire and halo. I think in the end she did not keep this halo ring.

This is a great thread, Dreamer! I started out with a halo, but sometimes dream about a solitaire. This is great for imagining what it would look like.

Very illustrative photos and such fun to look at, not to mention gorgeous.

Watcha doin''
Are you re-thinking your (someday) 2 ct. Sholdt semi-bezel? Cuz if you don''t want, I''ll take it! Do we need to get you interested in colored stones?

Wow, those are great pics! Thanks dreamer!

I think threepwoods, maisie's and treysar's are especially dramatic, but everyone's rings look amazing!

awesome DD! thanks for this thread....soooo are you still thinking halo
even if its only for a few years, I think you''ll enjoy wearing it until your dream 2 carater happens. I''m all for enjoying your diamond ring anyway you can
even haloing it for a few years
