My mom wants me to use the diamonds from either her wedding band or 10 year anniversary band, which is amazing of her! With her diamonds I’d likely do a 5-7 stone ring. I am just worried that with my fairly delicate looking radiant cut, yellow gold, e-ring with a halo and pave band that a 5-7 stone would be too much. Mostly because I just haven’t seen a ton of halo e-rings with 5-7 stone bands… I’d likely do a 5 or 7 stone single prong setting, to give you an idea of what I am thinking. Does anyone have an e-ring with a halo and a 5-7 stone band I can see?? Would be extremely helpful!
Here is my e-ring (1.5 radiant cut) and then with my mom’s rings (which I am inside of the size of those diamonds-keep in mind id reset them and the two row 6 stone, I wouldn’t use all 12 diamonds)

I think those diamonds are way too large and will look odd with your ering. I would opt for a RHR of some kind using the stones.

thanks! That’s what I’m leaning towards… kind of unfortunate but maybe the right thing.

I agree, I think it’ll be too big. Your band looks like it’s 1.5mm on your halo, which is really really thin. You should look for a 2mm plus for a matching pave band, otherwise I think the stones will be overwhelming. The other option with the smaller stoned ring (first one, hard to see the size of the stones under your ring) would be taking some of them out and doing a setting like this one: https://www.etsy.com/listing/504211113/cvb-jolene-style-french-cut-diamond-23?ref=shop_home_active_12
) The narrow section between the stations will make the ring look slimmer and might go OK once you take them out. Have you gotten it inspected at a jeweler? If it’s an older ring, some of the diamonds may be cracked/chipped, so you may end up with fewer that are a good candidate to be reset).
