Are you buying the ring from a jeweler?  If so, I would just ask the jeweler.

I don’t think just modifying the prongs would do it. In the picture above there is an opening for the diamond to ‘sit’ so it sits high like that.  It looks like that is a design feature in the setting. You may have to consider another setting if you want it to sit flush with the halo.

Oh, ok – maybe it would work then. I would consult the jeweler you plan on going to before you order and tell him your two options just to make sure it is possible to fit it to your stone.  Good luck! It is a pretty setting.

your ring looks like mine, except that i decided on the round cut for the center.  We had the setting designed so that the center stone would sit almost flushed with the halo (making an imagine of it being one piece..but not). 

Check to see if you can have the diamond set the way you prefer (how high or low you want the diamond to sit). When i watched and decided where to set the center stone the setter makes a cut into the prongs where I wanted the stone to sit (again my setting was designed for the stone) so he was able to get it as low as possible.  Check with a jeweler/diamond setter to make sure the setting can accommodate the size of your diamond where you like it to be. I went with a custom halo so that it would fit that way.  If your stone is slightly bigger than the halo, then I think it would work..if it much much bigger, it will have to sit higher.  Either way a beautiful choice =) enjoy…I adore my ring and you will too!

WhiteFlash can do custom designs for you. Just email them and ask. And you can have your own stone set in one of their settings, just tell them you want it flush.
(I’m planning on sending in my grandma’s diamond to WhiteFlash to have them re-set it into a different pendant setting for me.)

I also have a halo, the setting was from an online jeweler (EternityDiamonds), and since I didn’t buy my diamond from them, I had the option of giving them my diamond measurements or sending in my diamond for them to work-with and set. I chose the first option simply because I really wanted it ASAP because we were going to visit both my fiance’s parents and my parents the next weekend and I wanted to make sure I had it in time for us to announce our engagement.

I’d definitely check with the jeweler that’s going to set it for you.

The only issue with halos are if the stone is a little small for the opening there can be a big airline around the stone, or if it’s too big then it can cover the melee stones.

if you work directly with a jeweler, he/she can make the ring to your specifics.  my ring is a halo, and was based on a mark patterson design that i really liked.  my fiance had it custom made in order to have the diamond sit very low and be completely flush with the halo. it doesn’t have to be bezel set to be flush.  here’s a pic
