Did you tell them that you wanted the halo to be thicker than the band? That would have been the clearest thing to say so they knew what you wanted. Pointing out that you liked the size of the halo on something else, I would have made the halo the same size as that ring, too. But if you had said you like the proportion of the halo to the center stone, that would be a different matter.

Regardless, it is not what you want. I think it is beautiful, but you are the one who will look at and live with the ring, so I’d try again, but be sure to tell them exactly what you want.

des- :  i absolutely agree.

 

If it bothers you now then it will bother you later.  Dont get me wronng, i believe your ring is absolutely stunning the way that it is but it is your ring.  If it is not exactly the way you wanted it and you can afford to get it fixed then i would say do it.  Because personally if I felt the same way about my ring then i would always look at my ring and be like “my ring is so pretty… i cant believe i am getting married…. i wish my halo was bigger”.  You need to be completely in love with your ring.

I think the halo is thinner but it makes the ring so much prettier!

bklyn18 :  Yes I think you should talk to the jeweler and tell him your concerns. I’m sure, like you said, the miscalculation came from the fact that the ring you liked in his store had a much smaller center stone. So instead of going by proportion, he actually based the mm of the halo off of that one ring. Custom rings are sooo tricky and it’s an understandable mistake but if it’s not what you want, then definitely get it fixed. See if he can show you samples of what it would look like depending on what size diamonds he goes with. I’m not sure what your jeweler’s policy is, but like a PP said, you may have to pay a little bit more for larger diamonds since whatever quote and price he gave you before was based on the smaller stones. But then again, some jewelers might fix it free of charge. Whatever happens, don’t settle for something you’re not in love with. I think it looks amazing as-is, but that is my type of halo. Lol If it’s not your type of halo, then that’s not quite your dream ring yet.

bklyn18 :  the halo looks slightly thicker than the band to me, especially in the second pic. I think you syced yourself out worrying that something would be wrong and now your not seeing it right
