by Heartly » Jul 2, 2012 SO and I got engaged last week, but we're still working on the ring. We picked a stone from Adam at OWD last week, a 1.54 K antique cushion, about 6.75mmx6.75mm. The setting we're using as the inspiration is below, the jeweler will be making it with these modifications: - Entire setting will be made for cushion (so the halo will be cushion too) - Simplified the side/band detail so it's much less feminine, should look like these: http://jewelry.1stdibs.com/jewelry_item_detail.php?id=35555 - Removed 'cage' looking part underneath crown so that I can get a (mostly) flush fitting band Here's the real question: The ring is still super fussy, which is cool, but I want to make sure I don't get tired of it. I'm thinking of having them eliminate the 'circle' details on the halo, so it's just plain halo all the way around. SO loves the setting because it's deco and looks steampunk-ish, but I need to make sure I can see myself in it forever. Thoughts?!? Setting: Since it will be a cushion cut, I imagine it will overall look something like this: Thoughts?? Should I leave the circle/dot details in the halo? Or simplify them like above? Thanks!
