My new e-ring reset in a custom Gabriel & Co.

Hi everyone. I have been creeping for the last 6 months and finally made my decision and got my ring reset. Just to give you some info. I have been married for 12 years. I have a 1 ct round with trillion side stones in a 3 stone setting as my e-ring. I love my trillions but they always appeared gray in the setting except under direct sunlight. Over the years I asked a few jewelers what to do and they said to replace them with round stones. That wasn't going to happen. A few years back I started only wearing white gold and silver jewelry. I decided this year to get my rings either rhodium plated or reset in a white gold setting. I wasn't opposed to adding a little more bling factor to the settings or some filigree.
I stopped at a local jeweler to look in the book for new settings. They had a Gabriel & Co. Setting Style #
ER7482W44JJ. I really loved the setting but wanted my trillions on the side instead of the rounds. The jeweler called to see if they would custom make it the way I wanted and they did! It just came in, although I'm not allowed to have it until Christmas.
Here are some pics. There are not many halos with trillions and plain shanks out there so I thought it would be good to add one.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone. All your pictures and posts have helped me so much.

I really need help figuring out what to change my wedding band to. My jeweler will reset the stones that are in my current band. Any suggestions on what would look good with this type of halo ring?

Thank you! I thought about upsizing my center stone but I am sentimental and wanted to keep it the same. Adding the halo was a win win! I have found there are not many plain shank halos out there either to compare to.

You are right about there not being many plain shank halos to compare out there! I love the trillions. I think it would be beautiful and classic with a plain wedding band.

Your ring turned out great! I think proportionately it's perfect. I love the feminine taper the trillions give the design, so unique. It looks just lovely on your finger! Congratulations! Only a few more days and you can wear it! :dance:

I love it, looks perfect on you. The previous ring was beautiful too. Can you use your diamonds from your two bands to make a half eternity or 3/4 eternity band?

Very pretty. I like the ring solo, without any band.

Your new ring is beautiful. I actually like it all by itself. Are you sure you want a band?

Alex T, I want something new. The two other curved wedding bands over power the halo. I'm thinking of combining them into a single straight band. I'm not sure yet. Any suggestions?

I have considered wearing no other band except the ring; which I will do for a while. But eventually I would like a wedding band. My last two bands (one wedding ring and the other 5 year anniversary) were put together like a ring guard so they would all stay together. I never had the option to not wear my engagement ring and just a band. I imagine the halo ring will be more fragile than my other ring and I'll want to take it off to do some things. I could then just wear my band.

Very pretty ring! I think a straight band would look the best with this setting. I would try a bunch on before committing to a redesign of your band. I also think a plain WG or Plat band would look perfect.

Thank you everyone for suggestions on the band. Once I officially get it I'll take some nice pictures and post them.

Great reset! I would probably do a thin engraved band with no stones. Maybe 1.5 mm? David Klass does some beautiful engraving. Victor Canera is the master of it. And there are lots of vintage bands out there too.
