I am thinking about changing the setting of my ring and wanted to know what other Bees think? Pictured is my current ring, a 1.41 Tiffany knife edge.
It is very pretty and of course a classic, so I am not 100% sure… but I continue to be attracted to pave halos and am feeling at least enough sure to look into a possible setting change.
I don’t care for any of the Tiffany halo rings (tried them all on already), so my Darling Husband said he wouldn’t mind if we go to another jeweler and have a custom setting done with my existing stone.
These are the two I am looking at… single and double halo, small split shank for sure. And will continue to pair it with my existing eternity band.
What do you ladies think?
Here is my current set:
These are two pieces by the jeweler I am looking at:

I love the way the set looks now – it’s classic and timeless and really shows off the beauty of the diamond. If i had to choose one of the halos though, I’d say the first single halo, but I don’t think it would look as good with your current band as your e-ring does now.

not a fan of halos, and I have always liked your pair as is.

I love halos! So i voted for the double halo! But yours is beautiful as is also 🙂

I LOVE your ring as it is now. It is absolutely understated and gorgeous. BUT, if you decide you’re bent on getting a halo my vote is the slight split shank. I tried one on that looked just like that and it’s unique, delicate, and very beautiful.

I absolutely adore halos! I think they are stunning. That said, you have an exquisite diamond. If I were you, I would go to try on some halo settings, and ask to see a halo with a diamond that is comparable to your own. That will give you an idea of whether or not you really like the way it looks.
Either way you have a win win.

I love your ring as is… Gorgeous! There is a reason why the Tiffany’s 6-prong is a classic! I have a Ring Bearer solitaire too (but on a custom pave band), and I’ve considered resetting my diamond in a halo. What stops me is that they are so popular right now and I’m not sure if I will still love a halo in a few years. So I am telling myself to wait 5 years. The one thing I love about solitaires is that it showcases the diamond beautifully. Sometimes I think the beauty of the center diamond gets lost in a halo.
I vote for the split shank if you find yourself still wanting a halo 🙂

Leave it alone! Your ring is nice (and big) enough as it is. It doesnt need to be beefed up with a halo! 🙂 But I do love the single halo with split shank if I had to pick one of the two. I think the double halo would start to distract from your center stone.

Wow! Thank you soooooooooo much ladies. I’ve been really struggling with this in my head, so having your opinions, feedback, feelings and advice really helps!! I am so glad I reached out and asked 🙂 I like the idea of waiting a while to see if the desire passes. I also appreciate the feeback on single vs. double halo. I thought double at first as it’s unique, but I agree, I think single is enough and if I were to change the setting, one goal would be to keep the integrity of the center diamond. So I am still not sure. I will probably look at and try on the single halo that is posted and get a quote… and then sit on it for awhile. THANKS!!

No halo! I love solitaires without them, esp round.

Your set is stunning now, but if you absolutely are going to change it, definitely go with the first choice (single halo).

I think your set is beautiful. I have a halo and LOVE it but there is something so beautiful about a solitare. If you do want a halo I like the 1st best. Also, just a thought.. if you get your halo from another jeweler doesn’t it void your warranty with tiffanys? I’d check into that, I think thats what my friend told me about her ring from there.

I love ALL rings but theres something I find so romantic about a solitaire…

@misrusticj: yes, any work done outside or any alterations done to the ring they then say they won’t change it back. But I read on jeweler forum that it really isn’t a problem, that you just keep the original setting and anyone can put it back together later. Also, we have it insured, so I am not worried about that. The few places I look at over the weekend all say they have done it before and people do it all the time.
But I am really pleased with the feedback and the string showing of support for the solitaire and setting as it is.
I am for sure going to slow way down on thinking about doing it now!
