It looks like it’s going to be really pretty! Maybe ask if you can get a wax mold to see if it is really what you are thinking.

On your ring, I love the unique halo with larger melee. I think this will have a real floral feeling. Since you are new to CADs, I’ll point out a few things. 

1) Coverage? Your inspiration ring is a size 7 and has about 70% coverage (photo is angled, so that is guess). On a size 7, you would need a 5-5.5 carat round to achieve that coverage. So, that puts the width of the diamond at 11 to 11.5 mm. So, with your ring size in hand, you can determine how wide the halo would be to give you similar coverage. 

2) The halo, on both, is flat. The outer halo stones will look MUCH better if you have them angled at 20-25% off of level. So, tipping away from the center. This gives a beautiful side view and avoids the halo looking like a flying saucer.  The below ring by Victor Canera is the perfect angle. 

3) Are you ok with not being able to wear a wedding band or ring flush with this ring?  If you look at my markup, you can see they have the prongs swing way out. This will prevent having a ring flush, where the VC ring has the prongs pushed in and uses a doughnut to keep the ring next to it level with the shoulder/band of the ring. See mashup below. Have a look at this ring (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-gorgeous-dainty-erd-rose-gold-halo-omb.191094/). The basket of support has that floral feeling with petals and yet still gives you room for another ring. I think the basket of this rose gold ring would suit your ring if you want to scooch in the gallery. 

4) Your lovely inspiration is an antique ring with pretty traditional wide tab prongs. Have you thought about the prong-tips you want?  You can ask for tab-prong, like the inspiration, but can change the proportions. You can also ask for claw prongs or whatever you like. It is best to have a photo of the prong you want and say…these. I choose claw prongs and my ring still have a very antique feeling (see https://thegemstoneproject.com/the-resilient/). So, make sure you get what you want.

5) The band on the CAD looks really narrow in proportion to the ring. Much thinner than your ering. Is that ok with you? You might need a wider band to balance the larger head…or…not. You have to decide what works for your aesthitic. To me, the flaw in the VC ring is that narrow band. It fails to balance with the ring. 

Good Luck!

1.) Tilt the halo slightly.

2.) Def do not have all those long-ass prongs coming directly off the shank like that. Add a large donut underneath for better balance and shorter prongs.

This is an extreme example of the large-donut design, but you get the idea. It would look like a crown from the side.

jgti23 :  you’ve pribrbaly seen my posts recently 🙂 I also combined 2 rings into one. 

<div class=”text-holder” style=”box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; max-height: 1000000px; border: 0px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0); -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; background-position: 0px 0px;”>

This is my original e-ring (simple thin band solitaire) it’s a 0.63ct , Vs1 ,G colour: 

This is my parent’s ring that was given to me on my wedding day ( I used the diamonds and the gold to create my halo and side stones):

Here is a vintage setting better showing the tilt away from the center for a cluster.

On the band thickness. My band (below) is 3 mm and 2.29 mm tall which balances the large top well. I wear this stacked with a 5 mm wedding band and I did not want the total stack super tall, so I had the designer drop if from 3.5 mm wide.

Personally, with such a large halo, I would consider tapered shoulders. Ignore that this is a double halo, but the cover coverage is similar and I think the tapered shoulder help balance the setting really well. But, this is your ring and your finger. You get what you like! If you taper the shoulder, then the doughnut underneath will be the same width as the shoulder to keep the ring level with a band.
