Does my ring look silly? (Is the halo too small?)

I think it’s perfect! The ring is beautiful

mrsbinegar: not my taste (I don’t like it when a ring looks like pieces that got stuck together, especially with a high set diamond) but if it makes you happy, who cares?

I think it looks very pretty.  For me, personally, I prefer the diamond to be set more into the halo. I find that the diamond is sitting a little high outside of the halo, which creates the gap where you see your finger through it at certain angles.  That is just my personal preference for what I would want, though.

mrsbinegar:  By larger halo, do you mean a wider one (bigger circumference) that your diamond could sit lower in? I would prefer that, but this setting is BEAUTIFUL too. I really like it from the top! Have you had a chance to wear it around yet?

I think your ring looks very pretty. I think your ring has the halo that you want along with featuring your actual center stone, which sometimes halo’s tend to take away from. I love it.

I prefer a halo where the diamond sits flush inside.  It’s pretty but NMS.

For me , personally, the fact the stone sits so high is odd from the side — but I think the halo around it is fine

I would prefer my stone to sit in a halo that it “fit” in better, I guess you could say. I would be paranoid about losing the stone the way it is currently set. I really really love the setting you picked, it just needs to be bigger to accomodate your stone. Maybe you could have the jeweler order the same model only in a size that better fits your stone?

mrsbinegar:  I think the diamond sticks up way too high. It’s almost like it’s not even part of the ring. If you love it, go for it, but if you’re looking for opinions, get it made to have the halo bigger and the stone fit better.

Agree with PPs that I like the halo to be more around the diamond than below it. No a fan of very high settings personally.  But agree, otherwise it looks beautiful. The top view of the ring looks great to me.

It’s a very pretty setting and a perfect size but I think it would look so much better with the diamond sitting sitting flush. I don’t like the side view of diamonds set high over the halo. But that’s me – YMMV!
