Should You Go For A Solitaire or Halo Engagement Ring?

In our day and age, there are engagement rings for every kind of bride.

With all the options out there, it can be hard to narrow down what you truly like. If you’re stuck between rings, we can’t blame you! 

Many brides find it especially hard to choose between solitaire and halo engagement rings. If you’ve found yourself in this predicament, here are a few pointers to help make your decision a smidge easier! 

You should go for a solitaire if... like flying under the radar.

An engagement ring should represent facets of your personality. If you like flying under the radar, a solitaire ring may be the perfect ring for you. It says “I’m married” without shouting it from the hilltops. Smaller stones can be used to achieve a beautiful, yet subtle ring.
