Technically this is my 4th setting.
Pic 1: First setting with my band - almost 20 years old. Wore them on separate hands since they did not line up but always thought my band looked like a cheap ER.
Pic 2: Took out stone and put it in this setting. The setting broke and was a little happy since I never found a band that matched and didn't love the halo.
Pic 3: Jeweler stated they were going to pop the halo with the center stone and place it on top of my original setting and instead they cut the ring and the side stones shifted and it did not line up. I gave it back to them 2x and they still couldn't fix it. It was a horrible experience and expensive with my local jeweler.

I was really disappointed over the whole experience and then I went to GOG!!! I will post that pic next...

I LOVE THE SET!!! I was at the point that I was even looking for a new center stone. (There is an angle where it is not perfectly symmetrical and GOG was able to "hide" it perfectly.) My center is a brilliant cut, 1 carat H S12. I used the diamonds from my original rings to create the band. I still have 29 various sized diamonds left over the will be an upcoming project with them. I also want a matching band on top for a future anniversary.

GOG was so accommodating and spent so much time with me. The exceeded all of my expectations! It was a great experience and the overall set really did take my breath away when I saw it!!! I am ecstatic that my rings could look so beautiful!

What an amazing evolution! The new setting is great and it is really nice they were able to use the stones from your original setting.

Thank you everyone! It was a crazy journey with a happy ending! I am so happy that I did not give up hope! I am also thankful to Ame for her expertise and guidance through this process and to all PS'ers for sharing their pics of rings, experiences and vendor recommendations! GOG is really one of the best and perfectly brought my vision to life!

Simply awesome!!! I loved reading your post and seeing your journey in all the pics. But, my favorite was the second post seeing the brand new stunner. Gorgeous!!! Enjoy!!! :love:

Edit to add: I also really like the look of the wedding band with and without the e-ring. It looks perfect together or by itself for those less blingy days.

Thank you! I was shocked that I could wear the band alone if I wanted to and it doesn't look too thin!
