    I would choose the third one, but I don’t understand why there is so much dark area between the center stone and the halo. That would bother me. Is there an alternative that would be all clear without that darkened portions?

    Looooove the yellow diamond.  I also like option 3 though (not a fan of option 2)

    If you like a yellow diamond, then that’s what I think you should get. Not my choice but I think people should get exactly what they like. And no, I don’t think it’s too much. 

    The diamonds in the halo around the centre do not look equal sizes. That would drive me nuts.

    This is so cool!! Personally, I love the irregular sizes on the halo! If you want to go with a yellow diamond, own and go with it! I love all three options but the first one is my favorite.  Such a beautiful and unique ring! Congrats Bee!

    I like the bright yellow and the all white for this particular design, but I think the yellow diamond draws better attention to the charming halo than a plain white stone, so I voted for that. Both are lovely, though.

    The hint of yellow one would look best set in a simple yellow gold solitaire, which I would then wear. 😉 In that setting it just looks like a cheap low color diamond instead of something intentional.

    I like the yellow, it’s so much more unique. If you think it’s too much a smooth halo might help it look a bit more classic?

    wngadea :  I love the yellow diamond! I don’t think it’s too much, especially if that’s what you want. It’s a ring you’re going to be wearing all the time, so it should be what you love!

    is_a_belle :  Agreed – I think the yellow diamond compliments the scalloped effect of the halo, and really makes it pop!  Show us photos once it’s complete!!!

    wngadea :  IMO halos are always, without fail, best when the center stone is a different color.  I think the clear diamonds always get lost in standard ones.  So of course I voted yellow diamond.  Not sure how I feel about the different size stones in the halo though – I think you may be better off going consistent.  They are going to snag everything under the sun.
