theweddingunplanner :  I’ll be brutally honest and say that I really don’t like the double halo, it does look kind of like costume jewelry to me. If I were you I would change it and either go back to the original or add the bigger halo like you had planned.

theweddingunplanner :  aww bee, I surely liked it better before, it was so dainty and cute, which is my personal style in a ring. However, it doesn’t look bad now but I don’t think it fits your finger well.

If you have the money and will power to change it again, i would change it back to the way it was and leave it, it was not an ugly ring hun.


Good luck.

If you have the extra money, I’d change it back to how it was before.  It looked perfect.  An annoying and pricey mistake, but now you know.

I much prefer the first one, sorry it sucks with our ideas don’t work out! I would keep it as it is for a few months though and see if you learn to love it, otherwise you can go back to your old design. 

Was your setting melted down or is this a whole new one?

Dang, that sucks bee. I do like the original better. I know you were looking for something a little more substantial but still dainty. What do you think about something like this? https://pin.it/vddzokwhuq2sqz

I would just take this time as an opportunity to really look around at what you want and at least now you know what you don’t. Good luck!

I’m not a fan of the new one either.  It looks like costume jewelry.

Your original was perfect.

I have to say, I’m not a fan of the double halo, like ever.  But your remake? oh bee.. I think it’s beautiful.  I’m sorry you don’t like it.. I think it came out SO gorgeous.

Yikes.  Sorry.  I agree that the double halo is too much and overwhelms your center stone.  In your before picture, the ring looks much more balanced, but I could see going a smidge larger with the single halo just to give you the coverage you are hoping for.  GL

theweddingunplanner :  I can’t wear the pear shape, looks horrible on me.  BUT I adore them.. and honestly? I thought nope..going to be so ug… and then I saw it.  I say good for you.  Those are the right size stones too.  Still dainty, still bling..but not HEY STARE AT MY HAND sized..beautiful job Bee.
