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.

I definitely said I wanted the halo to be slightly larger than the band via email when we we’re doing the CAD process, it was one of the things I had him change when redoing the CAD’s. But if I hadn’t I would agree with you that there could of been a miscommunication on that.

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 totally agree with both of you, that was literally my thought process when I looked at it this am “yay, can’t wait to put it on, gimme gimme!!! Thin halo.
Definitely going to speak with the jeweler, thankfully he has amazing service and professional so hopefully it gets resolved easily!

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

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.

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

I think that was the angle/picture though because even in person at that angle it doesn’t look that thick! If it looked like that picture all the time I’d 100% be happy with the halo!
Who knows I’m clearly OCD af so totally willing to admit some might be in my head, or maybe I had a different idea of what the end product would be and this is just barely off enough to drive my OCD up the wall lol
