endlessjj:  if your wanting the halo to be dainty, then it’s best to go with micropave or french pave. These pave styles are very delicate and the diamonds are set very close together giving  seemless sparkle. If your wanting a halo similar to the tacori bloom then ask that the stone slightly overlap your halo so that the halo is just barely peaking out. Here’s a few dainty pave halo settings I found. Goodluck and welcome!

I agree with

MrsSparkleBee13:! Typically delicate looking sized melee (IMO) is <3/4 (.0075 ct) pointers, ideally 1/2 (.005 ct) pointers.

Hi Bee,

I have a cushion with a micro pave halo and matching pave band. I love mine, its very delicate and feminie. I looked at the Tacori bloom too (so pretty and subtle).  

-Get a vision board of things you like on pintrest maybe or follow some instragram accounts

– go try some on together (often your opinion will change once they’re on your hand)

– take those ideas to a designer who can work within your budget

endlessjj:  I had my ring custom designed, and it was no problem for my jeweler to make that accommodation. I’m not sure if it’s a standard thing or not. For reference, if you’d like to see the size here is my double halo with 1/2 pointers in both halos and 3/4 pointers on the shank.

brideinthesix:  Thank you! Yours is gorgeous, too. The low setting was a major part of the design, so I could wear it at work 🙂

endlessjj:  that ring is from rosadosbox on etsy also known as Loveandpromisejewelers.com (very popular company) it’s a cushion moissanite with diamond halo. Pave is secure as long as it’s done right! Since your wanting to go custom this shouldn’t be an issue, as the ring will be made by hand and not mass produced. As for chain jewelry stores like Kays, zales etc.. rings are mass produced, the pave isn’t always secure.

endlessjj:  No, definitely not channel set. My ring is shared prong micropave. You should google types of pave. Leon Mege has a very informative site about it.

Channel set is where there is literally a channel tooled through the metal, and the stones are held in the metal by sitting in the channel (no prongs). Below is a picture of a wedding band that has channel set pave.
