First of all, thanks for putting up with me asking so many questions and “can I get your opinion” topics. My return window is officially expired Saturday, and I’m totally happy! I kept the very first oval I got. There is something to be said about first instincts. 😉
I just dropped it off today for a custom halo. I should be able to pick it up in a week, and see the design, wax mold, etc. Then, it will take another 10 days or so for casting and setting.
I chose an under gallery type bottom of the head (not sure how to describe that), and 1.25 pointers, in G+ color, and VS clarity, in shared prong. I looked at 1 pointers also, but I think the 1.25 pointers looked just right with my setting.
It will hopefully be all complete the first week of December…seems ages away!! I will share pics for sure!! Thanks again or helping me decide. Oh, and making me drool over halos! I blame the bees entirely, lol.
Anyone mind sharing pics and specs on their halo? Do most people choose 1 pointers?

I bet it will be gorgeous! My new ring is still being custom made (it has a halo, larger stones though) but I will post photos on the bee once it comes in! I’m happy you’re adding the halo and keeping your same center oval!

Squeee! So excited for you.
I have a round, but I’m (im)patiently waiting for my halo to arrive. It’s so exciting! Mine should be here in a week or two, hopefully. Worst case scenerio, I don’t like it and I’ll just keep my original setting.

I can’t wait to see your halo! Do you know when it will be finished? Waiting is torture!

How exciting!! I can’t wait to see if you choose the halo! 🙂 I’m kind of like you, feel a little torn. I may wear it as a halo for a few years and then change it up again…who knows, lol.

@Heidibrooke: this is very exciting 🙂 I’ve followed your oval adventure for a while and I think you were right to keep the first one, it definitely has the right amount of character and the prettiest of all the ones you looked at. I’m in the same boat as you waiting for my ring to be made, mine should arrive end of next week or the following so I know the exciting feeling you’re going through! Cant wait to see!

@Heidibrooke: I’m trying to picture what your halo will look like given your description and I can’t haha so I guess I’ll wait till you post pics:) I’m sure it’ll be gorgeous.

I think 1 pointers and under will be prettiest/most delicate. I have half pointers in my halo and 3/4 in my band 🙂 I hope you love it!!

I cannot wait to see it. I, too, have been following your journey. I love a good oval halo.

haha it is definitely torture!!!! I’ve been going through the process and waiting for a month already, and it won’t be done for another few weeks (probably right around when yours is done, at the earliest at least) :-)!!!! The best advice I have is to get a bunch of different cz rings to switch out while you wait for yours, I have probably 20!!!

OH WOW, Heidi, I’m so glad you decided! I can’t wait to see what the cushion looks like – it will be fabulous I’m sure!

Just finished going through the process myself. It is torture waiting but SOOOOO worth it. You will absolutely love it when you get it back. Your oval is beautiful and will make a beautiful ring.
