@MissSweetiepie:  It sounds like you have a raised center halo setting. It’s just a different type of halo setting, which isn’t bad or weird, but rather unique. I don’t see them very often, but I think they’re gorgeous too! It’s a nice change of pace from the usual low set halos, though the high setting might be more prone to getting caught on things or banged up.

The vast majority of halos I have seen, engagement rings and otherwise, have the stone raised slightly above the halo. The only stones I have seen sitting flush with the halo are bezel set or have been lowered by custom request. Of course I don’t know what you mean by “a ton of space”, but some space seems very normal. Here’s mine: 

Now if you mean space that you can see easily from the top rather than from the side, that’s probably just because your stone is on the lower end of the size range that the halo can accommodate.

@Metalkisses:  I’ve seen this ring on the Bee too, but I can’t remember who it belongs to.I LOVE it, and I actually prefer a bit of space between the halo and the center stone.

Can you see a space around the stone from the top? If not, it may just be that it’s set high. If you can, I’d consider that pretty unusual, unless it’s intentional.

@MissSweetiepie:  My ring’s stones are set higher than the halo. From above, there is a small amount of space between the halo and stone. I love it! You can clearly see the distinction between the halo and stones. The halos aren’t meant to make the stone appear larger, but brings the eye in and enhance the beauty of the setting.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  Thanks for posting that! 

OP, I saw your ring post the other day and assumed the space was intentional. If you wanted a classic halo, then yes, the stone is too small for the setting. Personally, I think it’s gorgeous the way it is, but it should be the way you originally envisioned.

@canarydiamond:  You’re right! I looked at her ring, and then at the Blue Nile page, and it totally looks like it’s supposed to be a floating halo. 

I like this style better than the ones that sit flush. Good job!

It’s different than most of the halos I’ve seen on here, but I love the way it looks!
