I have a 2 ct center stone, and side stones. I want to add a halo to my e-ring. Preferably a double halo. I feel like my fiance WAY WAY WAY overpaid, and I don’t have the finger “coverage” I thought I would with a 2 ct. round stone. Thats mostly my fault cuz i have giant 9.5-10 size fingers. Is this possible??? How much will it cost? has anyone else done this? do you have before and after pictures? My center stone has 6 prongs, and i want to keep that, cuz its a rediculously expensive rock, and my gf lost her 3ct stone cuz it only had 4 prongs. The basket of my ring is kinda like this…
the “basket” is completely seprate from the rest of my ring…can it be done???

Also, I want the halo to sit flush with the girdle part of my stone, I don’t know it that matters. thank you

In short, no. you’re going to have to have the diamond reset.

@blingbling: I second.
You could probably talk to you jewler, but odds are you are goign to have to get it reset. If you are looking for finger coverage and want a halo you might be able to get it bezel set to have it sit more flush, but I doubt you could add a halo to that setting, it would cover up your side diamonds.

Nope. But you can trade in the current setting and have your diamond re-set into a double halo.

Can we see pictures of your ring? I feel like a 2ct. stone probably has more finger coverage than you realize. Granted I have a smaller ring size, but I feel my 1.5ct. stone would swallow my whole finger if it were any larger.

Sort of depends on your ring. If you have a peg head style, you will have to go custom and see if a jeweler can remake you a new peg head, or see if a Stuller peg head will work (if you go to the Stuller sit and look in their catalogue they have “halo peg heads” but they are not double halo but show you how it can be done). It also depends on how much room you have (a cathedral setting with shoulders will limit you more; whereas a “flat” band gives you more room) to work with.
So yes, it CAN be done, and I have seen it done on a couple rings on Price Scope, but it might also make more sense to get a whole new ring rather than try and reconfigure the one you have if it is still not going to be what you really want.
