Is the stone actually SET in the setting? Or just sitting on top? 

If it’s actually set I would not accept this. The setting is too large, meant for a much bigger stone. Airlines can be done nicely, with purpose. This just looks messy.

nkj317 :  you would know if the stone wasn’t set, as you would have to hold your hand extremely still in order to keep it from falling off the setting.  I think it likely only *looks* messy due to the fact that your hand is on an angle, making it appear that the centre stone is set crookedly.  Personally, if it were me I would ask if they could re-set it into a “seamless” halo that fits tight to the stone (where the diamond is set low so it almost appears flush with the halo).

My experience has been very bad when asking a jeweler to make adjustments to an existing setting. I probably found a bad jeweler, but now I’d just get a different setting or different size stone if I were in your shoes. I wouldn’t have the jeweler adjust the setting or halo because they might bend it or make the setting insecure for the small diamonds.

nkj317 :  if I were you, I’d find a jeweler that understands what you want and can show you examples of seamless halos they have crafted in the past.  If this particular jeweler doesn’t have any experience with that kind of delicate metal work or doesn’t understand the concept, find someone who is! Good luck!

nkj317 :  you can’t adjust a halo – it would need to be entirely remade. That halo is meant for a larger center stone.
