    Your ring is stunning I wouldn’t change anything at all.

    I wouldn’t spend the money to alter a ring that already looks so pretty. I love it the way it is.

    rrrr :  Thank you! It is seriously gorgeous! I’m a halo fan, but not normally double – your ring makes me question everything I know! (My diamond is a cushion cut. I am hoping for a halo one day, but am now wondering about a double O.O)

    I don’t normally care for double halos but I love yours!  It is very dainty for a double halo.  I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Definitely wear it more and trust your gut, if you’re not enthralled with it. Personally I think the double halos are distracting from the center stone. If size isn’t your main priority IE biggest is best, you may really love your ring with one halo and your center stone standing out more vs lost in its surroundings. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    Honestly I’m not really a halo fan, I’ve tried them on and they look too much on my hands (I’m only a size 4.25 with short fingers). But I absolutely ADORE your ring.

    I mean, I’m biased that ovals are “my shape” (currently waiting on my solitaire!) but there’s something about the delicate double halo on yours that makes it so unique and different than every other ring out there. I would keep wearing it to see how you feel.

    But that said, if your gut is telling you it’s not right, change it

    I wouldn’t remove it. I love oval halos, and am hoping my boyfriend proposed with one. It’s a beautiful ring! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the difference between your ring and your inspo for proportion is actually the shank. the split shank provides a different visual balance to the ering that two straight bands differ from. So, the halo proportion is the same, but the overall visual proportions are different. Not good or bad, but I think that is what might be throwing off your eye. If you want them more similar, then I’d talk with the designe about what can be done in that regard (maybe a new shank with a flush-fit split shank)? 

     

    FWIW. I like your ring. I like how it looks on you and the halo looks well-done. I woudl play with other wedding bands (plain and pave of a variety of shapes/sizes) before you elect to change anything. I think if you had a pair of plain bands 1/side or a marquise cut band — you woudl achieve more visual balance.

    rrrr :  your e-ring is stunning, I can be considered to be bias.  I have an oval diamond halo ering and it doesn crowd my short fingerS.  I love it anyway. If you love your ering with a double halo; go for it.  If you aren’t sure, ask your BFF most of the time your closest friend would give you their true opinion.  By The Way, a girl could never have too much BLING!
