Wow that looks amazing! Looks just like the inspiration photo from above. Are you happy with it ?

Overall I like it

BUT concern is that the pink halo around looks very light, I thought it would be the same color as the main pink diamond.
The supplier has given me the option to change the small pink stones to a darker color but it would cost more and also he said the workshop says it’s a little risky as they have already set all the prongs.. so I’m not sure what to do

any suggestions?

I think it looks very pretty as it is, but my ideal preference too would be for the halo to be a bit darker pink. So perhaps ask them what the cost difference would be and what are the possible risks and remedies if the melee is replaced, and then take a call. Did the work order specify that you wanted the melee to match the centre stone? If yes, perhaps you can use that as a negotiating/bargaining point.

Thanks for the feedback

I don’t have a specific work order, it’s an online purchase so mainly through Watsapp and some calls
But we discussed that the pink side stones would make the center stone look bigger , not sure how much of a bargaining point I have

The supplier said the center stone ended up being much darker than he expected when it was set and so this made the side stones fade out

I asked for a zoomed out ring on hand photo which I should receive tomorrow, that might give me more of an idea as well

Hi

I hope someone can help...how much should I expect as a price increase for darker pink halo, they are 0.9mm in size ?
Thanks in advance

Really very pretty ring. Sorry no help with the cost of darker pink diamonds. If you do decide to go with changing the halo diamonds to darker pink stones, I guess you want them to match your center stone colour as close as possible…what if they were darker for example? Would you be okay with that?
I would also be concerned about the risk in changing the halo. Hope whatever you decide it all works our for you :wavey:

wow I have been stalking that Instagram seller for ages! I didn't buy from fancycolor_diamonds and wondered how is its customer experience and service like! Thanks for sharing. :mrgreen2:

Personally I would prefer a matching pink halo...I love halo....makes the center stone so much bigger!

The experience and customer service has been great. He has been helpful with selecting the diamond and the design.
I haven’t received the ring yet so can’t comment in the actual ring till I get to actually hold it. Will keep you posted.

I don’t think I will change the current pink halo as I’m worried about the setting and also it will cost me more. It’s not exactly what I had in mind but overall I think I like it enough to accept it as is

I think the pink halo is very pretty. However, if the intention was to make the center stone appear larger, then it hasn't really achieved that, sorry to say.

I think if the cost of darker pink melee ends up being feasible for you and you really want the center stone to appear larger, then I'd go for it. I feel that diamonds and prongs can handle being reset once at least... so may as well try to get the look I wanted in the first place.

ETA: oops, just saw your most recent post. Glad you've decided to keep it as is for now!

Hopefully when you get your ring the halo will appear pinker than it does in the pic….also your skin tone may add to the halo’s pinker colour…..just my thoughts.

Yes, I also agree that it is already as magnificent as it is right now. The design is very very alluring and stunning! The existing halo makes the center piece pink gradually change from pink to white.. Hence this gradient approach is also very nice!

Please... please post more upclose photos n videos once this has finally reached you. I really am excited to see more of this beauty. The photos provided by the seller doesn't really do justice.

Hi everyone
Would like to give you an update
I ended up changing the pink halo to a darker pink. The seller knowing my concern made the arrangements and was very accommodating. I have attached the picture from the seller.
I’m very excited to receive it in a a couple of days.

Ooooh I like it so much on your finger! I really feel the pink halo couldn’t have come out better, and it’s all a wonderful effect! The marquise border gives a visually delicate and undulating edge. It’s great!!! (I second the request for more pictures and close ups).

It’s gorgeous and is such a statement piece! I like the darker halo too so good on you for making that decision. Such a nice shade of pink. Can you take some pics in outdoor lighting?
