Your ring is very pretty, but I understand what you’re saying. I think part of the problem is the size of the stones in your halo. To achieve the proportions of your inspiration ring, I think you need smaller diamonds in the halo. Also, if you want absolutely no airline, you probably need a custom setting which allows the center stone to overlap the halo slightly.

I don’t have my ring yet, but I’m getting a halo too, love them! 😇  Mine will be an oval. Hopefully some of the other bees with rings similar to yours will share their pics.

It’s called a visible airline. It would bug me too. If you can afford a larger stone that would help. Otherwise just live with it or have it remade. I would use smaller diamonds for the halo.

I don’t have a mossinite so I have no idea how they look paired next to real diamonds and I have no idea how much they cost (the general vibe on here is you can pick one up pretty cheap)…if you love your setting except for the gap, maybe could replace the diamond with a larger mossinite and then later use your diamond for a pendant or something else?? Just a thought if you’ll have to spend a  big chunk to rework your setting anyway. Maybe someone else that reads this will know how the two look on the same ring?? Your ring is beautiful though so maybe it’ll grow on you…

I agree w/ PPs that you may need the setting completely remade with the halo diamond melee being a touch smaller so as to create a smaller halo for the diamond to sit upon.

lisag103 :  I think your actual center stone needs to sit higher and the halo itself needs to be closer. David Klass designed my ring and he had the center stone sit up much higher so that when viewed from the top it’s a seamless transition.  If you look at the side view and the top my center stone blends into the halo.

I’m thinking like other PP’s you’ll need to have this remade with the halo being closer together.
