So after what feels like an eternity, I finally got engaged and got my ring which I helped design! It is even more beautiful than I imagined! I had to share!

Carat: 2.17
Color: G
Clarity SI2 (inclusion is one crystal and that's it! can't be seen by the eye when set)
11.32x6.89x4.47
Ratio 1.67
Symmetry: VG
Polish: Ex
Fluor: None
Table: 58%
Depth: 66%
Girdle: Thick to very thick
no bow tie

Size 5.5 finger

It is a delicate double edged halo, with 6 pave struts that are under the stone, and a 2mm pave band. The halo is a 1.3 melee with stones that are a little under 1 points. The stones on the band are larger, but not sure the exact size! The thing about this ring is that the ratio of the stone was a little large even though I loved the stone. So the setter "bulked out" the setting to make the pear appear wider and fatter at the bottom. The platinum was used to create what appears to be an extension of the diamond between the center stone and halo, so it makes the center stone's shape appear more of a 1.55 or so!

It is lovely lwiern1! The gallery is really pretty. They did a good job on the bulking up because I can't tell a thing. It looks perfect!

That is beautiful. I have a new Setting being made for my 2.08 pear. It's basically the Lauren B. RS 204. I get it back around the 27th of June. Wear it in good health.

I did take some inspiration from Lauren B. Her rings are gorgeous! Hope yours comes out perfectly! :)

Congratulations! It looks huge - in a good way :) And just perfect on you :appl:
haha, I know, it looks MUCH bigger than it actually is. I was worried the halo would be too big, because the goal was not to have a halo to make the diamond look bigger, it was just to delicately accent it. I think it came out well, but boy was I surprised during my proposal and he opened the box and I saw it!

Just trying to learn the lingo - what is bulking up exactly? TY!
