I did,,, you used to be able to see the point of the diamond and I couldn’t stand that!  I could literally have seen the bottom of the setting… so I got it lowered…

I think your current ring is beautiful! But I understand being a little disappointed if it’s not what you wanted. Do you have a picture of the inspiration ring?

@mseagles:  I absolutely love your ring, I was originally looking for something like this. My engagement ring didn’t come out exaaactly as I was hoping, but I would definitely suggest sitting with it for a while. Maybe don’t change anything immediatly. 

I think the proportions of your ring are great, I think often times the halo looks like it’s competing with the centerstone, so yours is one of the better ones I’ve seen. 

My halo is a little weird, so it’s not a great comparison, but I had it set in a bezel setting which is very low. I’m wondering if just adding a bezel instead of prong set would give it that umph you’re looking for, without adding too much to the halo…

@red_rose:  I brought mine back to where my husband bought it, and they lowered it for free.

@Heartly:  I LOVE your ring.  This is probably the first bezel setting I’ve been in love with! It’s so unique!

I love your ring. I don’t know if lowering the center stone would solve the issue, but I would go back and have them remake it instead. They should be able to show you exactly what it will look, in actual size, on the computer before the officially start making it. I actually favor high settings and am trying to find a high cathedral setting with a halo on a thick vintage band. It’s near impossible to find, by the way, lol. Could you maybe post a side view of your ring?

Mines a little higher than I want too. How exactly do they lower it?

@mseagles:  Your ring is beautiful, I don’t think it is too dainty, I think it looks gorgeous on your finger 🙂 But do whatever will make you happy to wear it for the next billion years 😉

@Janaic88:  Thanks! And I’m with you, never thought I would end up with bezel based on what I saw out there. But when I tried one on, the comfort and ease of it totally won me over. And they can be dainty!
