Hi, I''ve been in search of the perfect setting for my ring for quite awhile. I found it on PS when I saw a picture from WF that I fell in love with. My diamond is round but i wanted a cushion shaped halo around it - with more bling and less metal and the perfect proportions around the center stone.

First is the original.

The only thing I didn''t like about the original was the profile view. I didn''t like how the cutlet was exposed (kind of like ritani endless love). I wanted the profile closed off but not quite sure what I think about profile of the CAD. I think it needs to sit a bit higher? Let me know what you think. Also do the proportions of the halo vs center stone look identical to the original? I''m thinking more of the halo is exposed on my CAD vs the original.

First, that''s one gorgeous ring. Second, I loooove the lowness, but if you think it should be raised a bit, I think it''d look equally good a millimeter or two (?) higher.

Please return with photos once it''s completed!

It's lovely, but I am not loving the profile. I love the design, just not how the halo sits on the shank. It's needs to be more feminine? If that makes sense.

Ditto, I think slightly higher would look much better :D

Thanks all! :) I love love the top down version but not loving the profile - but I''m not quite sure how to explain what I don''t like about the profile... so I wouldn''t have a clue how to explain it to WF to get them to adjust it. I think there has to be slight more space between where the cutlet is and where the band closes below it. As far as prettying up the profile - any suggestions? The initial "inspiration" collage of pics that was sent to WF showed a way different profile and for some reason I cannot attach it!

I see the point about how low it is, but I wonder how much different it may look in real life. I think it''s BEAUTIFUL!

It''s beautiful. I too agree the head should sit up a little more. If you ever wanted to pair a band with it, you''d never be able to find one that low.

FIrst off..the ring is GORGEOUS! I do agree with Kaleigh on the profile. Kind of looks like the body needs a neck. Have you ever seen those men with no necks? That''s what comes to mind. It needs a little lift and that will add some sexiness to it.

Well, I happen to like it low...I dont like the ones that set up high with a big empty middle space (I think
the Ritani is like that). I guess moving up a little wouldnt hurt though. Your diamond doesnt cover up
as much of the halo as the original picture you showed (which I think is better...please dont change!).

Its a beautiful ring...post pictures when you get it!!!

Wow it will be gorgeous!!

I agree that it would look nicer with a ''neck''. My preference (personally) would be a legacy-style profile to give it some interest, but in such a way that you can still have a wb sit flush (if that is what you would like).

I think it looks a tad too ''squat'' or something. But I have a feeling it will turn out to be stunning when it is done. The top view is perfect!

wowza...I have to say I love it just the way it is!
However,,,,,, I think you might get what you are missing by just haveing them raise it up a tad so you can see more of the curve of the shank connecting to the head.

It is gorgeous. I too would raise it up a tad bit. I think it will flow a little better visually.
