2 sided halo setting from Maytal Hannah

I finally decided on a forever home for my antique cushion - it was a tough decision and I kept going between a delicate halo and an antique-type setting like Single Stone or Sebastian Barier. Ultimately my husband's vote tipped the scale to going with a halo. I considered all the normal vendors - VC, SK and SS. I wanted it to be 100% hang forged and delicate. I also wanted to see diamonds on the side of the halo and not metal. SK was the first quote I got back and I was shocked at how much prices had gone up with his increasing popularity and time. My quote was on par with the ring I had him make my guy friend for his fiancée which was 3xs more diamonds and labor but that was a few years back. I decided to do a bit more research on any other possible vendors I wasn't thinking of and that's when I found an old ring I had saved on my computer years before for inspiration and the maker was Maytal Hannah. I decided to reach out to her and she got back to me right away herself and was extremely friendly. She sent me photos of her work which looked like what I wanted and so I requested a quote. It wasn't cheap by any means but was just over $1000 less than SK.

I gave her a few inspiration rings, pointed out what I like and what I didn't and let her do the rest. When I got it back there was no donut and for about 5 minutes I contemplated sending it back to add a donut but then realized how long and elegant looking the stems are without a donut. To me, this ring is perfection. The lines are so smooth and each part of the ring flows so fluidly together. I was able to compare my ring and my friends pave SK ring side by side and Maytal's work is definitely on par with SK and the other go-to vendors here. I also had her make me a 1.5mm hammered 22k gold band which I also love.

I receive compliments every day on this ring. I'd use her again for sure- in fact, Maytal is currently making me a platinum bezel rose cut eternity band.

Onto pics...

In the last pic above, the stone isn't tinted- I'm wearing a chartreuse top and it's pulling those colors. The stone is a crazy fire ball!

Here are a few more pics...

If you go to Maytal's IG, you can see a video of the ring which showcases it better than pics.

So now you have 2 antique cushions? One in a bangle and one in a halo? Am I confused? Wow, that's really awesome!

Thanks! No, I have 1 antique cushion- I first set it in the bangle because I didn't like any inexpensive temp ring settings and now it's in this ring. I still have the empty bangle and will replace the cushion I removed with another diamond or maybe an emerald. :)

I agree- she's the sweetest!! She reminds me of Grace who I also adore- so personable and customer oriented. My ring is really as well done as the SK rings I've seen in person and her prices are quite better too!

Very pretty! Thanks for sharing! Would you mind sharing a couple shots of how flush the wedding band sits next to your ring from the side and profile below the halo?
