    I feel like what you’re describing would be a downgrade from your current set. It looks perfect already.

    I think your current set is lovely, but I’ve always loved the look of a curved band with diamonds in the middle Smile

    Michael Hill Jewelers does a curved band like that in their Evermore Collection. I tried it on and it was gorgeous! I can’t upload the picture though because their website runs on Silverlight grr!

    I’ve always adored your set every time I’ve seen it! I love the gap and think it looks lovely as is. But if you’re not comfortable or not happy with it then do whatever you’d like! I’m currently trying to decide what to do with my set.

    Is there any way you can photoshop it to see??? You could just copy and paste the band on your e-ring over some of the stones on the side of your wedding band to get an idea.

    @Scintillante:  Me neither. You might be able to even do it in power point though!

    FWIW, I had a 7 stone band and I returned it.

    The reason I returned it is because the 7 diamonds “fanned” across the top of my finger and it drove me crazy.  I wish I had a picture to explain it.  In 7 (or 5) stone rings, since the diamonds do not go across the top of your finger, at least in my ring, the metal from the shank/band stopped under the two end diamonds, causing the tops of the diamonds to be taller than the gold.  Does that make sense?

    When I would put my fingers together, I felt gold, but I saw diamonds sticking out over the ends of my finger.  Even when I had it sized down, it looked the same, and I didn’t like it at all.

    I think your set is beautiful but you’re the one that has to be happy with it.  I would try on some bands to see for yourself if what I’m describing would bother you.

    It may just be that I am extremely picky and the fanning wouldn’t bother anyone else but me. πŸ˜‰

    @Scintillante:  I would up getting a channel set band with princess stones in it.  However, I bought it as a stand alone ring, not to pair up with anything. (I originally bought the 7 stone ring as a stand alone ring too).  The diamonds in my channel set band go more than halfway across, so it is very smooth on the sides of my fingers, and it is super comfortable, but I don’t know if that’s the look you would want with your halo ring.

    Edited to add that the stones in my 7 stone band were about 10 points each.  Maybe smaller diamonds wouldn’t fan as much, or, maybe there are rings out there where the diamonds are set a bit lower and the metal touches the top of the end diamonds.
