Have you thought about making the band thinner? I think that would make the center stone look more prominent. Right now they seem to blend together. I’m not sure if your halo is considered chanel, but have you thought about having more of a pave halo? Then it will be more diamond and less metal. I think that would be pretty. Your center stone is beautiful it looks like it has some great stats from that picture.

Personally, I feel like adding another halo or widening this one would just be too much, especially when you add the wedding band. It would overwhelm your finger and look so bulky. I think the issue is the band part of the ring; I feel like it dwarfs that gorgeous halo. Maybe see if you can thin it out a little? Even a millimeter or two would really help the center pop!

I can see the difference. I agree a minor change can mean everything. I like your ring. Yeah, my jeweler saw my face when I saw it. I know he wont be surprised seeing me again. He will probably be like what took you so long.
I thought about pave. My friend has lost some of her pave diamonds. Skeptical but they do add to the ring.

@ashlee1214: I think taking off the outside edges (and maybe using those stones to make another halo) would make the biggest and best difference. That way you get the thinner band, and the halo, plus your gorgeous center stone, and all that stuff together would be SUPER wow.

@ashlee1214: I wouldn’t change it! It is beautiful!! I think adding another halo may distract attention from your gorgeous center stone.

@ashlee1214: Very pretty but I can see what you mean.
If it were up to me I’d take the center stone out and put it in an entirely different setting: thinner band, pave (or channel set if you’re worried about the pave falling out), possibly one small halo. I think you really need a thinner band to make that gorgeous center stone pop.

I definitely think it has wow factor already!! One thing I’ve been seeing recently that I really like is when rings have a double halo with space in between. That would definitely add more oomph!

Oh my goodness it is a WHOA ring! I think it’s stunning but that’S just me.

If you want the main stone to stand out more, then the band needs to be much thinner. Imagine what you have, PLUS a wedding band, maybe anniversary band… down the line. You won’t be able to bend your finger!I think it’s a beautiful ring, but if you want that “wow” factor, I’d suggest a thinner band. You can still have plenty of bling on it- use the stones that are already there, just rearranged. Also try a floating halo rather than how you have it set now. It will stand up off of the band and allow the center stone to really sparkle. I’d stay away from the double halo, IMO I think it cheapens the look of the ring, and makes the center stone look smaller.

Well Bees I found a ring online that I loved and went to my jeweler and found a similar style…and I’m getting a ring that I am in love with! Way more of my style. I am in love my FH and would have grown to be in love with the ring, bc I know it was his vision. Anyhoo, this is close to what my ring will look like. The diamonds will be a little larger and I am using my princess cut center diamond from the first ring!! Here is a pic!
Excuse my manicure! Shellac and my speedy nail growth don’t get along
