    It’s your ring that you will have to wear practically every day of your life. Don’t delay call the jeweler!

    I only seem to love bezels that have milgrain edges. I think it gives the illusion of more diamond details

    @syrupNhoney:  Dont feel bad about calling the jeweler– much better that you do it now rather than later.  Also, I am a HUGE fan of bezels 🙂

    @syrupNhoney:  Definitely call. He pushed you into a design you don’t want.

    I’m not a fan of bezel set diamonds either, to me it looks more like a cocktail ring and I too like to see the sides of my diamond (easier to clean as well).. and to answer your question, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? DO NOT FEEL BAD, with the competitive nature of the jewelry industry, he is HAPPY, OVERJOYED to have you as a customer. Most profit is made on the stone anyway + the fact that you are even considering his feelings automatically makes you an easier customer than likely 95% of the customers he deals with. If he offers the opportunity to make a custom setting, there is going to be PLENTY of back and forth until it’s perfect, that’s the nature of what happens when you go custom…better to tell him now than later!

    @syrupNhoney:  Also, just curious…why are you going custom? There are so many halo’s out there that look exactly like what you want from the picture you posted…why not find the one you love in person and buy it? Just asking as I’ve seen MANY threads from people who are disappointed with the custom settings they’ve had done (which are not unique settings) and either it doesn’t look like the CAD or they are disappointed for some reason or another.

    I personaly Hate bezel settings and nothing would change that. Call your jeweler and tell him it is not what you want. Want you want isnt hard, so there should be no reason for him to push you into a different direction.

    I would at least wait to see what the jeweler designs. You may be pleasantly surprised. If you don’t like it, tell him and then ask him to create the design you want. I would at least want to see what he creates though, if it were me

    @syrupNhoney:  you will not be happy with the one he is designing.  you have your mind set on the 2nd and 3rd pic.  they are just too different.

    call or email him right away and tell him this is what you want.  don’t accept him telling you what he is going to do.  you are paying him to do what you want.

    do you already have your centre diamond?  have you considered just looking for a semi mount already done?  it is much less expensive to buy a semi mount instead of a custom job.  the style that you like is gorgeous and i know that they make that semi mount in all sizes and for different shapes of stones.

    good luck.  i can’t wait to see the finished product.

    It’s your ring and you can’t let him force you into something you don’t like! If you’re 100% not into it, you might as well call so neither one of you is wasting time on a ring you don’t want.

    Call them!  Remember, you are paying them to create a ring of your specifications.  As long as it’s structurally sound, there’s no reason not to make what YOU want. 

    If you were paying someone to build you a house and you said “I want the kitchen next to the garage.” and they drew up plans with the kitchen at the other end of the house, would you say “But I want the kitchen next to the garage.”?  (I hope so!).  Or you order vanilla ice cream because you really hate chocolate ice cream, would you eat it or say “Excuse me, I ordered vanilla and this is chocolate, can I get the vanilla please?”.
