I have been lurking for weeks and weeks and drooling over the amazing rings on this site. People really do have some very very enviable bling on this site!

Recently I lost my original wedding and engagement rings :(( and my insurance has paid out and I am in the design process. I would love some advice on the basket design and maybe some pictures for some inspiration.

My inspiration for my halo is KiKiD's stunning mill grain pear halo.


I really really love this style of ring but I really want an intricate basket underneath that still allows me to put a wedder underneath.

These are the two designs that I love but an outside opinion would be much appreciated.

Here are they are.

The first is a tulip set basket.


The second is an intricate kind of basket.


I'm really loving the second basket. Some other opinions would be so muchly appreciated :D

Your inspiration ring is gorgeous! I looked a long time trying to find a halo that I liked for my pear but finally got scared
and decided not to do it. ;( (afraid I might not like it) But anyway, I like all the pictures you did for the gallery but I dont
think that a wedding band will sit nicely with them. I think you are going to have to pick your priority, either a lovely gallery,
or a wedding band that fits up next to your ering.

Here are a few more links to haloed pears where you can see the gallery. Unfortuately I dont think a wedding band will set up
next to any of them. I think there will be a gap wtih all of them.

Hi a gallery could be beautiful.
First off I'd definitely create a cathedral shank. It would showcase your gallery even more. You would be able to see it going all the way around the basket. Also, it would make the shank a bit less bulky.
For the gallery keep in mind it has to be something that looks good when repeated. Your second photo looks good but I can't visualize it being repeated around the basket without having large gaps in between. I've personally done a tulip design on a different halo and it's come out beautiful. You could also do repeating pear shapes or a type of symmetric design that can be repeated easily. Hearts can also work. In the art-deco days they used to do a zig zag pattern. Very angular but that's an authentic vintage look.

Good luck.
