baunie :  I was thinking that it looked like a white sapphire as well!

Nothing wrong with being picky bee! I would bring it back.

Also agree with PPs. The idea is lovely, but the execution is disappointing. Do not feel guilty about being “picky.”

The diamond does look kind of lackluster. Other than that, I do like the ring. Like a PP suggested, I think it may look better with a slightly larger halo to match the thickness of the shank.

I love the ring. I might be biased because I have an oval cut smile

I agree with other posters that the stone doesn’t look as sparkly as a diamond should. I have a sapphire that’s super dark, so mine doesn’t have shine or sparkle, which I don’t mind. But a diamond definitely should. I would ask to see certification for the stone.

The diamond seems to not be the best of quality,probably a depth issue. Overall I think it’s a beautiful style ring but your obviously not happy.  Also why is there a diamond missing in the halo? Sorry if you’ve already answered this question, I only read your first comment.

For perspective:

Thicker shank/big juicy halo.

Their work should be warrantied for the first year bare minimum.  You lost a diamond, they should be liable.

Honestly?  just save yourself a lot of time and have the conversation with the hubs.  I don’t know what your budget is but if you find yourself ring shopping again just ask the bee, these ladies are resourceful like you wouldn’t believe!

And it’s been said before, if you’re on a budget use diamond bistro, or ebay!  There are mega deals there 😀  Tell me what you want and I’ll find it for you [I should have been a marshall fields personal shopper].

I agree wtth pp’s  it looks  a very dark ( not that thats a bad thing) and rather unsparkly diamond from  the pics, and I would definitely  go back to the jeweller about  missing stone after only three weeks !

On the other hand, I love the plain shank just as it is with the halo  and often think that pavé shanks  detract from the centre stone(s) and halo.

I am also not a fan of a bezel set + halo. Plus it doesn’t seem as if any light is getting through to your ring!! It doesn’t seem to sparkle very much? The band also seems too wide. Is there a possibility to contact your jeweler & sell back the original setting & replace it with a new setting that is not bezel? Also, obviously you’re missing a diamond but you prob already knew that 😉

jennchic :  This looks exactly like  what I envisioned for my ring (except in yellow gold & with a pear diamond) as I wanted something that would draw the eye to the center stone & halo. I think maybe your jeweler just didn’t get the vision. That’s def not a bezel setting in the picture. This is my e-ring. It has a 1.8mm band & the halo is 0.2.

jennchic :  I really like the design of your ring! I think the problem may be that the basket is not letting in much light and that’s muting the sparkle. In the side view you can hardly see the diamond at all.
