Thank you so much for posting a pic of your gorgeous rings! I loved seeing center stones of different shapes and sizes too, it really helps me visualize what my ring might look like!
I had a couple questions, if you don’t mind answering:
1) Was it difficult to find a jeweler or store that could work with your small fingers?
2) Was it difficult to find a ring design that would suit you?
3) Did it cost you anything differently, to create your engagement ring? For example, cheaper because of less material; more expensive to create tiny details; etc.
I’ve been seeing different designs I like, but I wonder if my jeweler will be able to recreate them small enough for me — or if they’ll even suit my hand. It’s hard when the smallest size most stores offer is 4.0.
I’ve found a gorgeous blue sapphire that’s a bit larger than I thought would ideal, at 6mm. I’m hoping for it to arrive by the end of the month, and maybe to have it set in something like these:

Thank you so much for sharing that is some seriously sparkly finger coverage! A simply gorgeous set, I love the plain wedding band. The contrast really highlights each ring — sparkly for one, shiny and smooth for the other.
Would you happen to know the mm diameter of your center stone plus the halo?

My apologies…just saw that you tagged a bunch of us and nobody replied! To answer your questions:
2. No, I knew I wanted a halo but I was very particular on a few aspects of the design. For instance, I wanted very little metal to show and a noticable gap between my wedding band so we did outward facing stems instead of a donut gallery. I also went with small claw prongs so they disappear right in to the diamond. When looking at the profile, I wanted to be able to see diamonds on the sides so we had the halo tilt at a 45 degree angle etc…and the jeweler I worked with executed it perfectly.
3. Not for my engagement ring but when I was getting my wedding band made, I wanted the diamonds to go around 3/4 of the way to match my engagement ring. My jeweler said he could make it a full eternity with no added costs since I had a small finger size.
Looking at the ring styles you chose…if I may, I would suggest you get in touch with David Klass. Those designs look like they’d be right up his alley!
