Custom Pear Halo Engagement Ring from James Allen

Just work backwards from the setting price to determine your diamond budget. In this case - our setting cost $1170 - leaving $830 for the diamond.

The pave halo surrounding the center 0.74 ct diamond makes it appear larger than it is which is great if you're looking for maximum finger coverage and sparkle. Visit the listing on Amazon to see the multiple customer reviews and customer uploaded images for this ring. Here's my favorite:
This company was a delight to work with. The customer service is amazing and extremely personable. They expedited my ring, treated me with the utmost respect, and answered emails almost immediately. I was impressed. The ring itself is absolutely gorgeous. The diamond is a great cut&clarity. I am very familiar with jewelry and I was surprised that the center diamond, in person, looks even bigger than I expected it to...Buy with confidence.
