Im currently a waiting gal but the ring has been found (as per earilier posts) and now its just a matter of the proposal 🙂 . However I have been looking at the ring recently and I just realized I have no idea how something like a 2.5 would look like on my 6 size ring finger! Its also a unique shape (oval halo? I know!) so I would expect it to take up a bit more space than the usual solitaire; all in all its a 10x8mm (or 2.56ct) aquamarine in a halo of diamonds of the size I am unaware of. I’ve looked up most of the rings on the site but I dont think I have seen many on that size finger, and even less so with a 2 or more ct ring with a halo. Anyways Im just curious as to what it would look like, even with a wedding band, so Im looking for pictures with such rings on the lovely hands of you ladies!
Anyways I appreciate you all indulging me in some fab ring porn !

here’s my set. my finger is 6.25 and my ring has a 2.5 center stone, with .8 carats around the halo and on the shank.

Wow, I LOVE your rings! Do you mind me asking how you choose whether to get halo/ classic setting e-rings, and shared setting/ channel set wedding bands?
I haven’t got mine yet (going shopping this weekend) but am torn between which style I like best.

I tried on what felt like a million rings before deciding – I wanted to decide on the engagement setting and wedding band at the same time.
At first I really thought I wanted a halo and pave split shank for the engagement ring. When I looked at rings like that with wedding bands I never really found anything that I fell in love with.
Once I started trying on plain engagement bands with eternity bands I just knew that was the right choice for me.
That was the first time I got exactly what I thought I didn’t want – the second time was my dress!

when we first started looking at rings, i was so overwhelmed with all the choices. but then i saw the halo split shank setting and fell in love. i love the fact that it’s very delicate looking and that no metal shows. the setting also adds a little extra sparkle to the ring, without overshadowing the center.
in terms of an eternity band, i love how shared prong settings allow the roundness of the stones to be seen. mine is set in a U-prong, which means you can see the bottom of the diamond. i usually wear my rings on separate fingers, so i didn’t want to see a lot of metal on the eternity band. here’s a profile pic of both.

@lanany10: Ummm…that is one of the most insanely amazing photos of rings that I’ve ever seen. I love how the “point” of the diamond in your ering exactly lines up with the centre of the shared prong of the wedding band. Wowzah. Beautiful.
