I like your curent e-ring. It’s beautiful and classic. I find the website e-ring design busy looking and just kinda messy. White halo on white metal on white diamond always looks a bit blurry and messy to me.

By The Way is the wedding band the right size for your finger in the top picture? What’s throwing me off is how much it protrudes from your finger on the sides, like it’s at least a size too large for you, whereas your e-ring seems to fit your finger properly.

@joya_aspera:  Agreed with all of this.  The only thing that doesn’t match with your set you have already is that the band seems too big on your finger. 

 

I think the website one is too busy and REALLY loses that beautiful stone that you picked out.

I vote for the new setting. I agree that your band overpowers your current e-ring.

Both are beautiful though!

I really like the Neil Lane, but I’m a halo girl and solitaires have never been my style. I’m biased.

@ChellFish22:  If you love a halo now, you’ll most likely always love it. If you end up changing your mind down the road, you can change it. Why not get what you really love now?

Personally, I think both rings look great together! But if you really want to change it up a bit, I think your wedding band is gorgeous and the new engagement ring setting would just overpower it. I think the Neil Lane setting without the halo would possibly work because, as others have said, the halo would just cover up that beautiful diamond you’ve got!

I love that new setting! If your fi is ok with it and you can afford it, why not?

@ChellFish22:  well, I think in that photo they had to photo-edit the center stone and its prongs to be tinted more blue so that you could more easily see it against the halo. In reality the difference is even harder to see so it’s really hard to see where the diamond ends, it all kinda blurs together.

Oddly, I think people often get this to give the impression of a larger center stone, but, since this blurs the center stone’s boundaries and is clearly not all one stone, I think about the melee first, and I realized that I tend to underestimate the size of the center stone when I see them at first, seeing the melee halo as taking up more of the visual space than it actually does. In some cases I have wrongly assumed that a ring was a cluster setting (all melee) but really it was a halo with an actual larger center stone, which I only realized later.

I think because your wedding band is so much thicker than your engagement ring that makes it look really unbalanced. Did you try your band on with your engagement ring when you picked it?

I suppose it depends how much it bothers you (if at all), for me personally I want my wedding band to compliment and vice versa.

I prefer the E ring on your hand so I would look for something that I could try on I wedding band wise, but it depends which you prefer.

I have a halo and I absolutely love it, so I am somewhat biased. In all honesty though, I think this particular setting may overpower your flawless diamond because there is so much going on with the band. One suggestion, my center stone is mounted so that it doesn’t sit flush. I tried to take a pic but of course it is hard to see here…lol…I have seen other halo’s that aren’t mounted and it seems to make a difference.
