    My fiance proposed with the most beautiful custom halo ring earlier this week!! Thank you PS for all your help, we went through pages after pages of topic to create this piece. We secured our center stone from Martin at USA Certed Diamonds (FI said he will write a separate review for Martin, but long story short, he was amazing and super helpful), we tried on a million rings in stores, then took components of some of the most amazing rings on this forum to create our very own. We went to the jewelery maker with our concept (who asked not to be named here because they work directly with retailers, do not advertise to the public, and only take personal referrals), they created sketches, then CADs after CADs until we were satisfied. The final product is so sparkly, delicate yet sturdy, it''s just absolutely stunning! Without further ado here are the stats and PICTURES!!! [​IMG]

    CONGRATS on your engagement! This ring is absolutely one of the most beautiful custom pieces I''ve seen. Just lovely! I adore the basket! I love how it creates visual connectivity between the halo and the rest of the setting. It''s gonna look fantastic once it starts to Patina. That stone will just leap off of the ring!

    Gorgeous!
