That is a bit chunky but so is mine! I can definitely see what you’re talking about with the corner being off. They definitely need to fix it (that would drive me crazy). I’m sure if you take it in, they would do it at no cost!

I have an oval halo, size 5, just over 1ct center. So I do have a chunkier halo, but my stones are angled out to make it look more streamline. You can kinda tell in the pic. Maybe keep your stones but angle the halo out!

Aw thank you, yours is gorgeous! Just see if they will fix that corner. Seriously, tilting the halo out actually makes a big difference aesthetically if you have bigger diamonds in the halo!

latticedefect :  Ok, so your jeweler kind of seems like a jerk and/or lazy..

Im not sure how big my halo diamonds are since my jeweler just picked them out for me based on a picture I showed him of a similar ring.

As far as the airline thing, I personally dont really think I have an airline compared to a lot of other peoples rings I’ve seen.

For the tilt, my jeweler didnt do it by a standard degree or anything. They took the angle of the face to girdle (think thats what its called) of my diamond and angled my halo out to the same degree so that it would flow well since every diamond is unique.. I attached some more pics so you could see it at diff angles and maybe show him what youre talking about. Hopfully these will help you!! Im sorry youre having such a difficult time getting what you really would like 🙁

Yeah that is def a bummer.. but it just seems like hes being so stubborn. Its not about him.. its about YOU!!!

Mine are shared prongs that have like a scalloped U look to them sicne I dont like a lot of metal showing. Same with the diamonds on my band as well. 

By looking at your current pics, I think you have a normal prong halo setting instead of the shared. Not sure if that is what works better with your halo shape, but I’m sure if you wanted it shared, it could be changed to shared.

I personally think that the stones you have are a good size, just tilting them wont make them seem as large as they do when standing straight up. That way you can still have the shared prong setting you want. I also think in the CAD, he kept a lot of metal at the base of the halo, and didnt carve very deep U’s to show off the diamonds. It depends on what you like, but for me… the least amount of metal showing, the better!
