redearthlady :   your ring is stunning. Could you share details of the center stone size. The halo is perfection. Do you know if there is a name for this? My ring is a single halo and I have already had to have it reset as the halo was all wrong first time around. It wa away to big for the center stone. Only problem now is that since the made the halo smaller I have lost a good bit or finger coverage so am thinking of doing a double halo now but I’m afraid that they will mess us the halo again if I do! (First world problems right! Ha ha)

lisag103 :  Hi! I actually loved your first ring as well as your reset! My centerstone is a 6.5mm antique cushion cut. It faces up smaller than a round because of the cut and high crown so alot of the weight is in the depth. As far as the halo is concerned it is a double halo and the inside is slightly elevated and tilted so it prevents an airline.It also has a slight split shank that can only be seen from the sideview 14kt white gold. It’s based on the Tiffany and Co. Soleste. I do live my double halo but I have never found a band that I absolutely love with it. Maybe its because the side profile prevents the bands from setting completely flush and I dont care for curved bands,or because it’s just so much bling that band competes with it. Keep us posted on what you end up doing with your setting.

Thanks you so much. redearthlady :  I did love the finger coverage of the first reset but the proportions were all wrong and the space around the diamond drove me mad! 

The porportions of the first reset are much better but I am still struggling with the loss of finger coverage! Still have not gotten my bands back (getting them this weekend!) so I will live with that for a few weeks to see how I feel! My ering was made to be wedding band friendly even though it has a split shank which is great as it gives me lots of options! 

Realistically speaking a larger diamond is not on the cards now so I think a double halo will probably be the route I take if I still want more coverage. I’m going to have a look at that Tiffany one you mentioned to get some inspo as I don’t want any space if I go that way! I will keep ye posted on what I end up doing! It’s a long process ha ha!

lisag103 :  I think it’s a great idea to wait until you get the bands back and see how you feel about your reset then. If it still doesnt hit that sweet spot of finger coverage you want then a double halo may be the solution. I do suggest maybe going to try some on to see how you feel about them in person before committing to one because people seem to really love them or hate them. Looking at your new reset I love how the jeweler set the halo and the size stones he used as well as the quality of the setting so I do believe he could be capable of creating a double halo for you. If you do go with the double halo will you keep your full split shank or do a semi split shank similar to mine?
