I think your ring is ridiculously gorgeous, but get something that you will love.

I’d make cluster earrings out of them, and get a solitaire.

I think if you really hate it so much you should return it and start over somewhere else.

If it were me, and I didn’t like it, I would change it.Those changes you have mentioned might not be that major. I would talk to the original jeweller about the changes to see if they would be easily fixed. It is a beautiful ring, but just not what you want. Good luck 🙂

I think your ring is very very pretty, but that’s probably not what you want to hear. When you say the band coming up as a “V” do you mean a split shank? If that’s the case, I’m not sure why the jeweller suggested that can’t be done – did they give you an explanation on this? I like the size of the halo diamonds, I think they look great but I agree that they are sitting a bit too low agains the centre diamond. Have you spoken with your jeweller since about your concerns? Also, which state are you in? We have just gone the custom route and couldn’t be happier. Happy to recommend if you want to change jewellers.

I’d go back to the initial jeweler first and see if they can help you.  I’m sorry you are disappointed with your ring, that’s such a bummer!

I have 1mm stones in my diamond halo, I wear a size 5 ring and my center stone is 1.35.

 By “V” did you mean you wanted a split shank or did you mean you wanted where the diamond sits to look like a “V”?

I think your ring is absolutely beautiful, replacing the halo and having an additional diamond band sounds like a great idea!

If there was a wax mold created and approved by Fiance you may have a hard time having it changed for free.  Having said that, I would probably want the same tweaks you ‘re listing here ( except the bit about the prongs, since I can’t see them clearly in your pics).  I would also want the centre stone lower, halo diamonds smaller, and no gap. I would take it to the original jeweller to start, go elsewhere if you’re not satisfied with their reply.

@Mischka:  Browse the website a bit & if you can’t get what you want from your guy, & you like this one you can go with him. I’m in Florida and he has done work for me. (Not on my Engagement Ring though).

@Mischka:  Lol nope, I still don’t get it sorry! Do you mean the band tapers in thickness to a point before it joins to the halo. Please post a pic if you find one.

@Mischka:  no I understand what you want.  Kinda the solitare “set” with the halo also.
