lisag103 :  I think they both look good.  I think with your wedding band it will look more the same.  But after you get wedding band back and still hate it then do double or get old setting back.

The new setting is beautiful and really shows off your center stone. You’ll be plenty blingy when you have your other bands back, right now you are comparing apples to oranges.

I much prefer the look of the second pic with no airline/gap between the center diamond and the halo, even if it means less coverage.  It just looks more refined.  But if you really need the additional finger coverage, the halo diamonds could be made a bit larger (though that might throw off the balance between the center diamond and halo diamonds).  Of course, that is assuming this is a custom setting.  Your options are much more limited if it is a stock setting with just your center diamond dropped in.  GL

I much prefer the new one. I always judge jewellers who can’t make a halo without an airline.

I prefer the second picture. The halo doesn’t look like it’s trying to compete with the center stone. I’d say see how you feel when you get your wedding bands back!

I think once your bands are back you will feel a lot better!!! and if you don’t then go with the double halo =) I think both styles are nice

They look so similar, I really wouldn’t be worried about a “loss” of coverage!

+1 for team wait for your bands. 

I love your new halo, it’s prefect and it’s what you wanted. In the grand scheme of things the difference is what… 1mm?

The new one is way prettier and the “loss” of coverage is minuscule! I also love how it looks with the plain band! Make the ring pop! Don’t go back! The new setting is way prettier! Love it.

It honestly took me a minute to figure out the difference. The new version is so much more luxurious looking. It really showcases the cut and size of your center stone!

It looks like the halo diamonds were slightly larger in the original setting.

In addition to the airline, the proportions were wrong on the first ring. The halo was too thick and used larger stones. The second iteration is far superior. In terms of finger coverage you have a lot more than many people. It’s not a big thinking diamond, but it’s very respectable and beautiful. Learn to love it.
