oh yikes, brick and mortar chains can be terrible for overpriced, lower quality diamonds. I know the Jared’s is easy, but if I’ve learned anything about diamonds, it’s that you’ll get soooo much more for your money online. 

You could order a stone or 2 from james allen, and have them set by your local jeweler. Just an example of what I searched for some pretty good specs and here are the prices.

Definitely fills out the setting better! Lovely. My ring is from Jared too, if I could do it again, I’d probably go through James Allen but you don’t know what you don’t know starting out. I too had my ring all set and then realized I didn’t think the center stone looked right. Going up in size fixed it so I’m happy with it! Jared has good customer service from what I can tell and it’s local so that’s a slight trade off for me 🙂

I love this setting!  I wouldn’t offend u by calling it clunky but it’s not a delicate ring. I prefer the heftier rings. I do see what u are saying about the halo though. I can’t offer any solutions I just wanted to tell u I think your ring is beautiful. Good luck!-posted before I saw the new stone!  So much better. U have to do what makes u happy. I know it’s a ring, but one you plan on wearing for a lifetime. This is soooooo gorgeous!

I think it’s pretty in the photo. You are so right though, it doesn’t show a gap in the pictures. Looks like the one in the photo may be a larger carat size ? I think it’s a beautiful ring but the gap kinda throws it off….I see where you are coming from…

Yes! That’s exactly what your setting needed! It’s beautiful and your manicure sets it off really nicely, particularly your accent nail.
