    I agree, the setting is really high.  However, the design is gorgeous!

    @taterjuice:  I like the lower part of the ring, but the stone is waaaaay to high. I like halos to be flush or almost flush with the center diamond

    Hi. I liked it a lot from the top. It’s the profile I’m not wild about. I would rather the stone be seated in the halo lower. That’s just me. It’s unique and vintagy though.

    Woah! That is crazy high. I think it’s pretty, but I’m not the hugest fan of the outermost halo. I like the idea of using marquise stones, but I don’t like the rounds in the marquise shaped bezel. French cut stones in the inner halo would look a bit cleaner and look more vintage to me. I think they are a bit sturdier than the pave ones also. They are basically square so you see less metal and more diamond! Like this but diamond.

    Stunning! I agree that it looks a bit too high. I would be a bit concerned about knocking it or getting it caught on things. But the setting is very vintage looking!

    @taterjuice:  Gorgeous setting! I would prefer a more flush halo. Can the stone be lowered?

    The setting is pretty. The center stone would sit too high for my taste.

    A very thin, engraved, milgrain simple band would look perfect. 2mm wide tops. IMHO, you have a knockout ering, wring should not compete. of course I am biased as that is the band I am wearing.

    That size stone would look perfect if it was sitting lower within the setting. More flush top.

    I like it a lot. I agree with previous bees who said it looks really high. I think if the stone was lowered it would be perfect.

    I also prefer simple bands with a very detailed ring. I think a band with complimentary milgraine would be TDF with that ring.

    Loved it untill I saw the profile. Centre stone sits waaaayyyy to high for me. Would Amazing if the table of your chosen centre stone sat flush with the top of the halo. I could see a lovely blue or yellow saphire working with this too!

    I LOVE THIS RING!!!! Where is it from? I have a halo and it is a bezel set. I think this set would suit this ring.
