@marinewife4:  I would definitely get something like this.  Might have to go the custom route.

@marinewife4:  Where in California are you? Perhaps a bee or two can recommend a custom jeweler.

@marinewife4:  I would start by finding a highly trusted local jeweler.  I found mine through google reviews and whatnot.  Then bring in your ring and a picture of what you want.  Be VERY specific if you are going the custom route, because you can’t see it until it’s too late to change anything.  Just go with someone you trust and you’ll be fine.  Good luck!

@marinewife4: What does your ring look like from the side?  Is there a basket to worry about, or is the headmount high enough that a band would sit flush?  That will make a BIG difference in the type of ring you get!

My advice is to go try on a ton of rings and see what you like!  I tried on probably 10-15 styles before deciding on a thin pave band in platinum.  I could see something like a thin pave band, or even a plain band, really complementing your ring.  It is very intricate, so maybe less would be more?

@marinewife4:  Your ring is so pretty! I have an oval halo as well, but with no sidestones. These rings are gorgeous but can be extremely difficult to find a band for, particularly if you are someone who prefers the look of something sitting flush. I’d go to a few different jewelers to try different styles on and see if there’s anything that happens to fit the way that you want it to. At the same time, I’d also meet with some designers to have something made to fit around it. We almost ended up going the custom route, but found something at the last minute that actually fit the halo. It was just a matter of being in the right store on the right day. I’d suggest figuring it out a good amount of time ahead of your wedding in case you decide to go custom.
