Is my airline around my diamond too big?

For my own personal preference, it would bug me. It’s a gorgeous ring though– very similar to mine.

mrssanchez2177 :  airlines are definitely personal preference, but it is too much for my taste.

It’s too much for my taste, as well.  I would want it to be less pronounced.

Some airlines are done well and look deliberate and “fit” with the ring. Most just look like the stone is too small for the setting. Unfortunately (IMO) yours is the latter, and it would bother me personally.

Don’t have to ask me twice! Lol. Center stone is 0.7, elongated cushion cut, 1.6 total weight.

My setting was made for a 0.75ct stone but it still had a deliberate airline. My stone is 0.59 so the airline is a little more pronounced.

It doesn’t bother me though because I like the look, that’s why I picked this setting in the first place. I like the obvious distinction between center stone and halo.

I have a double halo, the second halo has an airline. I love it, but I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I think your ring is beautiful, btw!
