This is a modern round brilliant center stone (maybe around a carat?) with a “bright-set”/”bead-set” halo. The shank has twisted design, also with bright-set/bead-set pave. The halo and the shank are both finished with milgraining (the tiny little bumps along the “walls” of the hallo and shank. I think it’s gorgeous!

aventurin :  The sides are called “twisted split shank”.  The halo and sides look like they’re bead set with millgrain.  It’s a pretty mix of antique with the millgrain but modern with the twisted split shank.

Happy to help!

You likely won’t be able to find a high-quality bright-set halo with milgrain for less than $2K. 

Caysie Van Bebber has quite a following – for price reference, here is her octagonal bright-set halo:

It’s $5K, but I bet she could come up with a modified version that incorporates a plain shank for you, and a less intricate basket, and possibly get it down closer to $2K. It’s worth at least reaching out to see!

You can look up the amora gem ultra and forever brilliant moissanite on youtube to see how they behave.

@aventurin if you want a diamond check out youtube. If you can’t look at them in real life video will help you see what kind of luster each stone has.

aventurin :  It doesnt HAVE to be that large! Caysie would scale the size down to suit the diameter of the stone you wind up with, or make it even smaller, if you want. That’s one of the pro’s to doing custom. You can just ask her to come up with an idea for a dainty bright-set halo with a small/simple basket and go from there. 

If I were you, I’d just go to a few jewelry stores on my own and ask if they have any bright/bead/channel set halo settings and try them on to get a feel for if I truly like them on my finger as much as I do on a computer screen.
