    It’s a lovely ring. Maybe if you just get the airline filled in with metal you’ll like it more? I’m afraid removing one halo would destroy the ring and you’ll have to start with a new setting from scratch, but I’m not a jeweler.

    It’s a gorgeous ring, it’s a real statement piece. If you are self-conscious about the size I think it would look really elegant with one halo.

    I think it looks gorgeous as is. I’d leave it alone. You can always decide to change it later so maybe live with it for awhile and see if it still feels too large in a few months?

    Personally, I wouldn’t dream of altering such a beautiful ring! But you’re the one who has to look at it. Do what makes you most comfortable. Like PP said, you’ll probably have to go with a new setting. I don’t know that you could remove a halo that easily from your existing setting. How long have you had your ring? If you just got it, I would wait a little while and see how you feel before making a permanent adjustment. If you’ve had it a while and still feel uncomfortable, perhaps you could go to a jeweler and ask what options you may have for altering your setting.

    OMG your ring is stunning! I’m not normally a fan of ovals, but wow – I love it! If I were you, I wouldn’t touch it. 

     

    What are the specs on it, if you don’t mind sharing?

    No way it’s beautiful! What futureDrAtkins said is correct, it would ruin the ring and it would have to be remade.

    Beautiful ring! I’d personally leave it as is.

    Don’t touch that gorgeous ring! Haha So obviously I think it’s perfect as is. If it’s really bothering you go ahead and take it to your jeweler and see what your options are. It could just be that you aren’t used to having such a stunning statement piece on your hand. I have the same ring as you except mine is a round not oval. It took me some time to get used to it. In the beginning I wondered if it looked like one of those champion sports rings because it felt big to me. Now after 3 years of marriage it seems much smaller. Shrinkage is real! Maybe live with it for awhile and see if it grows (or shrinks) on you.

    rrrr :  I think it’s gorgeous honestly and I wouldn’t touch it at all!  But it’s your ring adn you’re the one who will be wearing it and if you don’t like it, don’t keep the halo

    I think it would be pretty set in just a single halo. But I agree with FutureDrAtkins you’d probably need a new setting.

    I’m not personally a fan of double halos and think it would be the epitome of understated elegance with just one. I’m not the one wearing it, however. How long have you had it? If not for long give it some time. If you find you love it, keep it. If you don’t, change it. It’s something you see every single day and it should make you happy.

    I’m not a halo person per se, but I LOVE your ring! It’s stunning as it!
