mrssanchez2177 :  Thank you! Yes, I know airlines are not popular and it’s a different look. A bee said it reminded her of Saturn LOL!

In the end, it’s really what you’re comfortable wearing. Your ring is gorgeous either way!

I think your ring is lovely. My whole thought on halos is that it should act as one element. The airline separates that relationship. Just my thought.

It is too big for my taste, but if you love it, then they is all that matters!  My only thing, is that in the second pic, the diamonds look dirty around the halo. I worry It is a result of the space?   Is it just the lighting in the picture?

mrssanchez2177 :  I feel like airline gaps are really preference.  I didn’t mind either way, but my ring ended up not having it the way DK set it.  I wore a fake set when I was pregnant and it had an airline gap.

It is barely noticable when you aren’t looking at it directly from above, so I don’t think so.

While airlines like that aren’t to my taste (or apparently to the tastes of many of the bees in this thread) – our opinions are totally irrelevant as long as you like your ring.

If it bothers you then get it changed so you’ll love it – not so a bunch of random internet strangers can love it!

mrssanchez2177 :  they say the airline allows more light to enter the diamond and therefor the diamond shines and sparkles more, versus one that’s surrounded by metal. That said, it really comes down to a matter of personal preference, I myself do prefer the look of a ‘tighter’ halo and not so much an airline.

I personally would not wear the ring since it looks like the diamond is too small for the setting.

KeeKalena :  you just made me like round stones! What a beauty. 


Mrs.Fay :  I love your double halo! 😍😍😍 & the airline is lovely. 


OP: Your ring is gorgeous & I agree that the airlines are just a tad on the big side. Does your center stone sit up very high? If so, maybe you can have it lowered to close the gaps some?
