I posted a week and a half ago about receiving my halo and being unsure. It’s a round center stone with round halo. Some of it had to do with coloring (moissanite- I’ve since resolved that concern), the rest with shape. In certain lights/settings it looks perfectly beautiful. At other times, however, it looks oblong or mis-shapen, or “blob-by”. Does anyone else see that with theirs? Is it the way the light is hitting it or maybe shadowing, or maybe the prongs visually distorting things?
Just curious….I’m just as interested in hearing if yours looks round all the time from all angles, because it just seems that is should. A circle is a circle, right?! I can’t find the cord to uploads pics from my phone. The funny part is, I can take pics of it that look gorgeous and ROUND and I also have pics where it looks distorted. I don’t get it!

@Debbie1031: Honestly, some people have a more particular eye than others…chances are if it looks a little misshapen, it probably is–others may not notice it, but halo’s can be a tricky thing and that’s why halo settings are typically much more expensive than other types of settings…there are even special ring designers (Victor Canera & Leon Mege) that are known for their “halo work”
*IF I were you, here is what I would do: go to the pricescope message boards and get the opinion of the *experts*, post your question and photos of the ring, and see how they respond….here’s a link to the site:

If it’s a moissy, then it’s against the rules to post about it on PS without asking a mod first. 🙁
