@Lyssie:  that is beautiful! But I agree the halo is wayyy to clunky! Do you have pictures to show him when you take it back to demonstrate more of what you want. I think huge stones look so amazing with micropave. Like Harry Winston settings Maybe look that up and see if that’s what you’d like.

@Lyssie:  I think your ring is absolutely stunning and I wouldn’t change a thing! (I also have a large center stone with large stones in the halo!).  If I saw your ring in real life I doubt I’d know it wasn’t a diamond, but I can’t really tell moissanites from diamonds unless they’re the square brilliant cut ones or super green, or if I was examining the stone up-close for 10-ish+ seconds.

@Lyssie:  They can remove part of the basket when the time comes or cut a little hole out of it if you don’t want to rock a big gap. I like gaps though.

@Lyssie:  would you be open to changing the center stone to a smaller one? I think very delicate melee (like half pointers) or a smaller moissy centre would make it look better. Right now, it looks big because your fingers are so long and slender!

@MissSweetiepie:  yes! This is what I was thinking! It’s drastically different than what te OP has now though, so the jeweller would need to start from scratch probably, and that would be a huge expense.

PS – where is that from? I want it.

I’m confused, are you wanting people to know that your ring is a moissy or do you want people to believe that it is a diamond? Becasue wouldn’t the people who know you right now know that it’s not a diamond years from now, after you’re married to a doctor. 

Honestly, it’s a beautiful ring but with a center stone that high, why even do a halo? I think it would look much nicer as just one stone because it’s fabulous on it’s own.

@letigre:  I agree. I like <1 pointers in halos. Buuut… it seems like those would be too small for that center stone. It also would be a complete re-do and really expensive.

@Lyssie:  I think that since you’re not used to wearing any e-ring at all you should give yourself some time to get used to it. From what I can see, it looks exactly how I would expect based on the wax mold you got. Since you approved the wax mold, I’m not sure how flexible the jeweler is going to be with re-doing the halo… and might charge an arm and a leg for it. 

I can assure you that when I first started wearing my ring I just wasn’t used to seeing something so pretty and shiny on my finger.

@letigre:  I didn’t know they charged to start over I figured they covered it if you weren’t happy with the final product! And I have no idea I got it off of google images but I want it too! I’ve seen pretty much the same setting at Shane co and really wanted it!

@MissSweetiepie:  I would assume they would charge with a re-design on something that was approved as a wax mold. Not sure though, I think it would depend on the jeweler and what is in his policy. Even tho OP told him a dainty halo to begin with, she still approved the design after she saw what it would be like on her finger – that’s the main caveat I think.

@Lyssie:  I just wanna say that your jeweler did a pretty good job, according to your specifications. And I can’t really see the color difference between the Moissy and diamond melees in the pics you posted. Congrats!
