I don’t have the embrace but I did research on a lot of halos when deciding on my setting, and the embrace was one of them. I’d say I’m 99% sure there is no metal surrounding the centre stone either. I know this because I’m not a fan of bezel setting an dthat would’ve put me off if it did. What holds the stone in place are the 4 prongs. There is a bit of metal around the surrounding stones on the halo though.

This link shows a picture that I think shows this relatively clearly ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope it helps.

Btw, that’s a GORGEOUS setting!

@jda785:  I don’t have the embrace (have looked up pics) but I think I understand what you are describing.  There has to be metal to create the halo shape and to hold the prongs (and the stones) however, the metal piece from the CAD may be too thick?  I can see metal on the embrace pictures but I think it’s pretty to similar to my ring.  I have a pave halo and while there is certainly metal underneath the diamonds, the way they are set into the metal you cannot see the metal when looking at the halo from the top down.

My advice to you is to show the designer what you are talking about in person and how you want it to look.  There are certainley halos that are thicker with more metal so there is almost an outter ring of metal surrounding the diamonds – which is NOT (from the sounds of it) what you want.

It’s okay to tell her what you want and to not settle until it’s the way you want it. Once you sign off on the CAD you’re screwed if you don’t like it.  So speak up – don’t be afraid, it’s not being pushy! You’re spending a lot of money so you should get exactly what you want.

i have a cushion embrace replica from moissyco and I have a thin metal piece around the ring. It originally bothered me a little bit, but to be honest, I rarely notice it now.  You can kind of see it in this picture.  That being said, if it really bothers you, I would try to get rid of it.

One positive thing about having a metal frame is that it holds the center stone way better! Without it, the stone is only held in place by tiny prongs and it’s vulnerable to getting loose constantly. I say this because my initial e-ring was a large smoky quartz held by 4 prongs. It got loose every few months and I constantly had to get it tightened.  I ended up changing rings entirely. 

Here’s another ring I was considering as an e-ring because it did have the metal frame ๐Ÿ˜‰

@jda785:  Do you have a picture of the CAD design? I think I’m more confused now about what you’re talking about!

@Miss Panda:  Ohh I see what the OP is talking about now from your picture.  OP – you can definitely have that easily removed. My ring def does not have that. It’s never come lose or anything either.
