mjay :  it’s so bloody frustrating!!! Good on you for raising hell!! I hope they correct it but it definitely to me looks like the halo is too big and I think if you raised the centre stone it would look off with a large airline. I hope I’m wrong though and I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but if this will bother you either get them to remake it or order another in the correct size to fit your diamond exactly. It’s a stunning ring!!! Love rose gold!!

mjay :  The last set of pics has a better view and I also agree the centerstone looks dropped or sunken in to the setting. Having it slightly raised shouldn’t be a problem for a skilled jeweler, the only issue is that the opening looks larger than your stone and you may have an airline if you modify the height of the stone. Please keep us posted.

mjay :  to me that last picture makes it look like it should be a bezel setting but they used prongs instead. I think having the prongs switched out for a bezel that fills up the gaps woukd be the best answer if it’s possible, that way the center can come up a bit but still be secure and protected

mjay :  my center is wayyyy higher.  here’s a side view, top view and a slight top view.  The stone is very high but it looks flush from the top.
