Well, I've got it...and the setting is gorgeous!! The detailing is beautiful and the milgrain is delicate - I'm really happy with the quality - but...I have to say...after all my calculating and measuring, this ring looks bigger on my hand than I thought it would! :-o This is going to take some getting used to!

I do love it - it's the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have ever owned - it looks awesome from a distance. And my diamond definitely looks bigger and the faceting is more apparent in the halo. Dreamer had said in my other thread that the optics of my stone would improve with a more enclosed setting, and she was right. The trade-off is that I feel the stone shows a bit more tint in certain lighting conditions due to the contrast with the melee. It doesn't bother me though, just something I noticed.

I kind of wish that the stone was set a tad lower...but then again I think it might help my diamond stand out from the halo. I'll live with it for a while and see how I feel.

I want to thank everyone who helped me out in my other thread - you are all the greatest! Oh, and of course a big thank you to bastetcat for basically picking out my setting for me! :lol:

Your ring is beautiful Junebug and stunning on your elegant hand!!
The halo is so gorgeously made :love: and I love the accent on the shoulders.
I bet you cannot stop looking at it!!

I actually like it that your diamond is set a tad higher. It makes the stone pop!! And you have great finger coverage too!
This ring is one of my Pricescope favourites.
Enjoy and wear in good health!!

Thank you so much Laila! I agree that I'm not ever going to suffer from DSS again (in fact, hopefully I can get used to this baby) - I just showed it to my daughter and said "It looks pretty big, doesn't it?" and she said "I think it looks really good...I don't think big is bad!" :D

Have you decided what band you're going to wear with it?

June, it is perfect, not too high, and this from someone who prefers a low set stone. You certainly met your goal of a nicely rounded look.
Wouldn't mind more pics. :lickout:

I also like that the stone sits up a bit- it's not too much, just enough that it really demands attention!! Beautiful!!!

Junebug, it is DIVINE!! I really love it and I do think it sets off the gorgeous facets of your stone better than the previous setting did. I don't think it's too high at all! I think it's PERFECT!! :love: :love: :appl: :appl:

Thank you so very much for the nice comments Acinom! - I'm really glad you like it! :)) After wearing it for a while, I think the height is ok - to tell you the truth, I'm kind of afraid to mess around with it lol!

Truly, truly gorgeous - the stone and the setting both. A great look on your hand.

Will you wear it with a band or not?

Enjoy and much happiness for you with this beautiful ring.

Thanks Alex!! - this setting really is more flattering to my diamond - even my daughter noticed it was sparklier!

Thank you so much for sharing in my excitement Lia! I can't believe it's finally on my finger! You know, I'm not sure about a band - I kind of like it by itself, and the base of the ring is pretty wide. I haven't even tried a band with it yet, so I guess I should check that out!

Thanks Anna!!! I'm beginning to think the height works with this style of setting. And you are so right - this setting really does round out my stone, and it looks so much better in low light conditions.

Junebug -- wow! That ring looks absolutely perfect on your finger! Wonderful reset, your OEC in its new home is stunning. I loved the old setting too, but sometimes a little more (or a lot more ;)) ) oomph is just the right thing. My guess is that you'll get used to the size pretty quickly and it will bring you tons of enjoyment!

Your'e welcome Junebug!
This ring actually doesn't need a band. It's so stunning on its own. I love bands and stacks, but this ring should be the center of attention.
I keep coming back hoping you have posted more pics :naughty:
