Double eagle claw, halo, open basket??  That’s just my amateur guess

Do you have a shot of those rings from the top? I wonder if you are after the look of the higher table, in which case it is likely an OEC or a newer form of an old cut. Modern cuts cannot be set to look like that, with the table standing so far above the halo and the girdle flush. A modern RB can be set slightly above the halo in prongs, can be prong set and have the girdle flush with the halo (in which case the table won’t stand so high), or bezel set in the halo, but you cannot achieve the look in the pictures with modern rounds.

I’d just call it a low profile halo setting. It looks alot like the micro pave halo by Harry Winston.  The bottom pic is a winston  reproduction.

mrssloan2013:  I agree, when I first saw it I thought it looked just like the harry wiston style.

mrssloan2013:  That bottom right is a great pic showing the diamonds on the basket. I may use it. 🙂 It’s my exact ring (except mine being 1/2 eternity) and I can NOT get a good photo of it to save my life.

It could be called a “basket” setting. It’s very similar to the “bridge” setting. I have a cathedral setting so it’s a bit different

The support medals that are holding the halo are straight up. But yours is a bit diagonal. Creating that basket look.

I’m pretty sure it’s called the traditional setting.  There is a picture of a ring like that I saw on pinterest.  If you look up ring settings there should be pictures that define each one.  Good luck.
