    by itself I would say ring 2, but since you’re going to wear it with that band I’d say ring 3. plus I wouldn’t want to give those jewelers more money!! ring 2 & 3 have better halos than ring 1, imo. more rounded and gentle-looking.

    I’m partial to a plain shank on a halo… looks very classic to me.

    How big will the center stone be?

    I voted for ring 3 because if you’re going to wear it with an eternity band, I absolutely loooooove the look of a plain metal band next to a band with stones. I, myself, will be doing the opposite with a pave band on my e-ring and then a plain gold wedding band. I just love the contrast and how you can definitely tell there’s two separate rings.

    Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

    @sugarcube: From your description, I love halos like this! When it’s not very obvious, just a little extra something. It’s really the only kind I like.

    Moissy is already very sparkly and it will already be a larger stone (1 ct). Then, adding a halo on top of it? I think it will sparkle like the dickens.

    Your wedding band will sit flush like you want, too.

    Plus, extra money/store credit for the band(s). What’s not to love?

    I’d definitely go for ring #3. Very classic set with your wedding band.

    I really like #3.  It is gorgeous and I think it would be stunning next to the diamond wedding band. 

    I really hope this turns out to be an option because I know this whole ring thing has been very stressful.  It would be wonderful for you to have a beautiful ring that you love on your finger and be on with things.  Keep us updated for sure.

    I like the first one best since it is very similar to my ring (biased, I know). Mine is a cushion cut and not round, though. For what it’s worth, I get compliments on my style ring all the time since it’s not very common to see halos with split shanks. I like having a ring that is unique and I am planning on wearing one wedding band very similar to the ring you posted.

    I like the second one, but it’s very similar to my own ring so I am obviously biased. πŸ˜‰

    I like option 2, it’s the closest to the original style you wanted, at least to my eye. I’ve been following your ordeal and I hope you can reach a resolution quickly and painlessly!
