I would go to a highly rated local jeweler and see if they can replace with lab diamonds.

For diamonds that size you will likely pay more for labor than the actual cost of the stones so try to pick something you believe you will be happy with long term. It is a very pretty ring.

I agree with the OP ^.  Whatever you decide the labor is what is going to get you.  You may want to just have a new ring made with the new halo stones if you decide to go a different way.  Creating that mount shouldn’t cost more than a few hundred dollars, and find out if your jeweler can re-use materials. That will offselt the cost of the gold [mine does-hence me bringing it up].  Although more often than not do not be surprised if they won’t.

I think you recurved a lot of great insight… my personal 2 cents:

If you can, spend the extra money and upgrade the halo stones to the best possible quality. It will elevate the look of your entire ring. I happily spent an extra $1000(?) to have a slightly larger and more clear melee added to my halo ring. The sparkle is intense and made the ring look much more expensive than it was. Compared to my other diamond rings…this one stands out A LOT!
