theweddingunplanner :  I’m not normally a fan of halos or double halos but yours looks exceptionally well made (stone size, placement, airline, etc.); it’s very striking!  I’d say keep it as-is for 3 months or so and then decide. Maybe keep the double halo for date nights and buy another, less blingy ring for every-day wear?

I assume you’re not up against a return period, since it was custom, so I would give yourself some time to get used to it and then make up your mind.

The more I look at your reset, the more I like it.

theweddingunplanner :  I think the new setting is stunning, but it’s you that has to love it. It doesn’t look cheap or tacky. They did beautiful work. 

You could always purchase an every day ring, and save this one for special occasions, and wear it as a right hand ring.

Although I wouldn’t change it to this new setting in the first place, now that you have the ring I think it’s really a waste of hard earned money to change it back to how it was. Plus, if you were so content with it anyway, you wouldn’t consider an alteration in the first place. It looks kind of like a big ring like Katy Perry’s.

Maybe wear it for a while to see if it grows on you. It’s really not the biggest problem in the world.

I’m going to be the outlier here and say I live the double halo. I could see it being cumbersome for everyday wear, though.

theweddingunplanner :  the ring I had was a halo but the halo diamonds were 1.3mm, so now I’m having it custom with a 2.7mm each diamonds, my center stone is a 7mm. 

I felt horrible knowing I wasted so much money, but I’m also glad I’m finally getting something that I truly wanted now and this whole ring thing will be done and over with.

I like the new ring 🙂 it’s very different and way bigger than the first setting so maybe you’re just in shock? I think the double halo was done well !

I see why you don’t like it.  I’m a bigger fan of your original ring.

Personally, the double halo screams cluster setting.  I know I will get some flack for that, but in my opinion, it’s trying to create the illusion of having a larger ring by adding finger coverage.

theweddingunplanner :  For what it’s worth I think that the double halo was well executed by the jeweler and it’s a beautiful setting. The thing is that you have to love it. I also think it’s very flattering to your hand. What about getting a band that is substantial enough to wear by itself for times you don’t want to wear your halo? Also I agree it may be a shock for you to see the new setting and it may take time to get used to. How about wear it around a while and see if your opinion changes. Also it may be that you are more sentimentally attached to your original ring than you previously thought. Keep us posted.

I’ll be honest and say I’m not a fan of the double halo and think getting rid of it but keeping the other halo would look amazing. t least your jeweler did excellent quality work. Don’t feel bad about not liking it, sometimes we need to have it on our finger to figure out we don’t like it.

Oh gosh…don’t want to pile on but definitely prefer your original.  Not sure if it’s been suggested but maybe a solitaire?
