Diamond halo engagement ring designs are extremely popular at the moment. Whether it is a centre round brilliant cut diamond or fancy shape like this radiant, the range of halo designs is always expanding.
When deciding on a halo engagement ring design there are two main design styles to choose from – grain set and claw set.

One of my favorite cities so far. The people are friendly and warm. The weather is wonderful and there is always something to do. Recommended travel destination for everyone.Recommended for:

Sydney, a thoroughly cosmopolitan city in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings, is a place that I usually like, and occasionally love. While certain elements of Sydney's business-financial and hipster culture can be a tad pretentious, and the population often a far cry from "Australian-friendly", the wonder of Sydney's beaches, stunning waterfront, charming neighborhoods, and tasty (if expensive) restaurants and pubs make it a thoroughly lovely city to visit. See Circular Quay, Bondi, and the Opera House, but don't neglect hip spots like Newtown, Glebe, and the stunning walk from Bondi to Coogee, with a prospective stop for snorkeling in Clovelley's sheltered pool.Recommended for:

Although it is not the capital Sydney is Australia's most famous city. If you are heading to Oz you will most likely be at least passing though here. It's a beautiful city to serve as the gateway to welcome you to the continent.Recommended for:

What a fun international city. You feel so safe walking around this amazing city. The iconic structures can't be missed. Also are the various harbor stops for amazingly fresh seafood with great views.Recommended for:

To me, Sydney is like San Diego and London had a baby. It's cool, hip, and Bohemian at the same time that it's cosmopolitan, bustling, and multicultural. I fell in love with Sydney the day I arrived, and still pine for its sun-drenched streets, sparkling harbors, and endless array of things to do. Yes, it's expensive (the #2 most expensive city in the world), but with a little research and smarts, you can easily get by on a modest budget.Recommended for:

I loved Sydney. Beautiful city. Was there a while ago between Dec 2008 and Jan 2009. City's got a great vibe. The transport system is pretty nice as well. Loved walking around downtown and by the bay. Harbourbridge is great. Watched Fireworks from the Sydney Opera House and dinner. Beautiful place. Would definitely want to visit again.

Gorgeous gorgeous Sydney. I don't know how anyone gets work done here. An outdoor lovers urban fantasy that also had great restaurants, plenty of cafes, and wonderful boutiques. Far from almost everywhere but one of the most pleasant cities on the planet.

Sydney is a sort of Los Angeles created in an alternate parallel universe. It spreads out forever, hugging vast bays and reaching into the countryside. There's a vibrant big city center, great public transportation, a web of ferries going everywhere. Beyond the suburbs it's go miles of open spaces. The Blue Mountains are nearby. Oh and the beaches for swimming and surfing and boating. And a lively art scene ranging from contemporary art to the older works of Aboriginal artists. Lots to see and do.
A vibrant harbour city with lots to see and do. If you're only in town for a few days, wander around the city centre, go shopping in the Queen Victoria Building, visit the restaurants at Darling Harbour, or take a ferry to Manly and eat fish and chips on the beach. The city also has loads of great museums - the Powerhouse is great for kids with lots of interactive exhibits. Stroll through The Rocks, especially on weekends with the markets. For the young at heart, a trip to Luna Park is also a must. And finish off your visit with a drink at the Opera Bar overlooking the famous coathanger bridge.

Not as clean as Melbourne but the people are just as friendly. Restaurant service is typically not very good, probably because they do not work for tips. Aquarium is great, maybe your only chance to see a platypus and they have three. Street crossings helpfully tell tourists to look left or look right for oncoming traffic. Sydney Opera tour is good, wish I had gone to see something.
