Sorry I don’t have any advice but I would love to see pictures! 

What about taking pictures and having someone else make it for you?

Pictures please, and maybe taking a professional in there would be the best. It sounds like with her it won’t really matter though just because she’s so surly.

Perhaps you can take the design to another jeweler and have them try to replicate it?

agree with pp. can you get a cell phone pic of the setting to take to another jeweler? Or maybe if you described it for us we could help you look online for a similar one? I never cease to be amazed by the resourcefulness of the women here!

Is this picture like what you want? 

I found it here: http://thediamondco.com/tdc/Pages/pages_jwlr/Engagement/pages/sd871.html

I don’t know if they sell just the setting, but if not at least you’d have a clearer pic to take a jeweler to have them make one. 

 

If it isn’t, maybe describe what is different so we could help you find another pic of something closer?

I would definitely second having someone make it for you. A good jeweler/wholesaler would be able to imitate or create anything you want. My wedding band was custom-made but is pretty much identical to the de beers shared prong diamond eternity. Before our wedding I had the jeweler give me a quote to redo my setting and it was 1/4 of the price that was quoted by the jeweler that we originally purchased my ring from. I will probably go ahead with it when we move back to Houston. My brother’s fiancée’s ring was done by the same jeweler and it is exactly what they wanted and very reasonable (near perfect 2ct asscher with halo setting)

 Not sure where you are located but most large cities have a “diamond” district where you can find very talented jewelers. Mine was made in Houston so I’m not sure that will help…

Could you try taking these pics to another jeweler and asking for a similar custom ring?  I’d be wary of working with anyone who gives me such bad vibes, especially for something that expensive.

I was in a similar situation. I found a new setting I loved but the place was difficult to work with and just seemed really shady about their pricing and whatnot. I just kept looking and found something very similar from a much better place – it saved me the headache of having to deal with people who acted like they didn’t want my business in the first place.

I’d say based on what you’re looking for you should be able to find that elsewhere. It’s not super uncommon, you may need to look for a while to find something comparable though.

The ring @corgitales posted looks exactly like my ring. But I got mine at a local jeweler.. Have you tried the macro setting on your camera? Also maybe just take a full saturday to go to the diamond district and look at as many jewelers as possible. you might find something similar!

Ok how about this…. it seems to sit up pretty far from the band and its pretty detailed underneath (not sure if that is what you wanted or not…) but the halo part is smaller diamonds that are kind of “encrusted” all around the halo rather than just at the top.

 

 

 

Perhaps if you like the halo of this one and the band/setting shape of another, you could take multiple pics to a jeweler and kind of have them “frankenstein” together a ring for you using your favorite elements of each ring? Here is the link for this ring:

p.s. don’t feel badly if you dont like the second one either… there are seriously worse ways to spend a monday morning procrastinating than looking for e-rings 😉
