So I’ve been engaged for about 5 months now. Prior to the proposal, we went around looking at rings together, and basically every ring I liked went something like this “I would love this ring, if I could just subtract this” or “I love this ring, if I could just add this.” So, we started to look into going the custom ring route (something I can write another post about later). I wrote out a long a detailed explanation, and sent it off to a custom jeweler in another state. Meanwhile, my fiance took the same explanation, and had the custom ring made himself without telling me. The surprise was wonderful … but the ring turned out not what I had imagined. Right after he proposed my fiance said let’s take it back and have them redo it, but I was so torn over the fact that I wanted the original ring I had been proposed to with, so I said no. Fast forward to now, I honestly don’t love my ring. And after all the time and money my fiance put into custom making it, we decided that it defeats all of that to keep a ring that I don’t like. So back to square one.
I was hoping you guys could help me out! If your ring has a halo, or a split shank, or both, I’d LOVE if you could share! Anyone else please feel free to post your rings if you’d like (I always love to see them), but any bees who have those specific things would really be helping me out!

My ring has a split shank and I love it. I wear it with a rose gold pave wedding band.

My e-ring has both a halo and a split shank. We went the custom route and used LaurieSarah Designs through Etsy.

@kellybell: It’s ok what you don’t love your ring, but I must say – I do!! Any more pictures? Pretty please?
Can you tell us what it was the you really were thinking of? I’m interested to see the differences between what you have and what you wanted.
It’s so great that your Fiance and you have decided to get something you are both happy with. And congratulations on your engagement!

I love my ring! People say they’ve never seen one like it and I haven’t either. We got the mounting (1.2tcw) from Stuller and bought the center diamond (1.52tcw) from a local jeweler.

My ring is a 1.21 ct. cushion cut diamond in a halo setting with a split shank and 0.71 cts of diamonds in the setting (1.92 cttw for the whole ring). It is set in 14k white gold. I had it custom made by a local jeweler here in Chicago who does amazing work!
