@luckylady3090:  …doesn’t seem to big.  A good rule of thumb is if you need a wrist brace to support’ve gone too far, until then, game on!

@luckylady3090:  I think that it’s a beautiful size!

I have a 3ct OEC in a very dainty pave halo with a unique tulip shape & what attracted me to the setting was how dainty the pave is (more so than any other halo I’ve ever seen) & how unique the look is for being a halo which is trending right now.

Therefore, I understand wanting to keep the design interesting (which I think it part of your reasoning for omitting pave on the band). I will say though, that I actually don’t think the melee in your halo is all that small, & if the size it bothering you, you could also make the stones in the halo smaller. But, if you really like the scallop design, you’d have to stay in the stone size range that you’re currently in otherwise it wouldn’t work.

The center stone isn’t what’s “big” (it’s a totally great, normal, beautiful size). The halo part is what’s big. Personally – I prefer a daintier halo. It doesn’t overwhelm the center stone so much, and it looks a little bit more elegant. This is what I mean when I say a “dantier” halo.

If you notice, this has a very thin halo around the center stone. It doesn’t distract but actually adds to the look of the center stone;

I have been lusting after a ring that exact style. You have totally convinced me to get it.

To answer your question: It’s beautiful, looks great on your hand. I do not think it’s over kill.

Everybody happy happy.
