Hi everyone,

I have been a long-time lurker on PS, usually hanging out in the Show Me The Ring forum checking out all of the gorgeous rings, but now I need your help/opinions.

I have my mother''s diamond from my father (they have been divorced for 25 years) and I want to reset it. Please excuse the fact that I don''t really have the specs except that I know it''s around .60 carats. It''s not ideal, but it is very pretty, and because it holds sentimental value to it, I am dying to wear it as a RHR.

So, here is my question...I would like to set it in a halo something like this

http://www.whiteflash.com/Engagement-Rings/Styles/Diamond-Settings/Amphora-Diamond-Engagement-Ring_1380.htm#

or something like it without the diamonds on the shank.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I know I have seen one like this, but now I can''t find it!

Thanks so much for any feedback you can give!

Gypsy has a halo/plain band that Winfield''s made. And Tawn has one that I "think" WF made. I know there are others, just can''t think.

https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/drumroll-please-my-setting.72011/ Thank you Ellen! This is my thread.

But I think you'll find this the most helpful it has a collection of different halos with plain shanks: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/plain-band-with-halos.57197/

What's your budget, if you don't mind my asking? I know of a couple of designers who have similar styles now, and I can see what I find for you. If you prefer to get a 'stock setting' instead of a custom one. Ocean (my design through Winfield's) was very reasonable though, and I would recommend her.

Here's one by Natalie K if you want a stock setting though. http://www.firenzejewels.com/diamonds/info/28-Natalie%20K-1-3168-000-Lady-s-MK-18k-white-gold-engagement-ring-setting-and-wedding-band-set-000-&CFID=212696&CFTOKEN=d729058d48b5a818-7C9B580E-3048-7225-6FA2FE2762E32E59.html

Gypsy! Thanks for your response!

My husband didn''t mind the price for the Amphora from Whiteflash (this is going to be my birthday gift, for my 40th, in April! OMG, can I really be that old, LOL.)
So, if we go a little over, that wouldn''t be a problem.

I don''t have a preference whether it is stock or custom, I would just like it to be as gorgeous as your ring (which took my breath away)!

Thanks for your help!

Thank you very much for the compliments. Ocean does beautiful work. So if you like the look of my ring, I would go for the original (adapted for your stone shape and size) and give Wink a call or email. He can be reached through highperformancediamonds.com. My halo was handmade and my wires were also done by hand and it really is quite special to look at something so delicate and realize how much effort and time and care was put into it especially for you. I can't wait to see what you end up with... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
