The ring is actually a dual halo ring, there is a second small halo underneath the main one. The curved shape of the supports connecting the two halos is inspired by the shape of the Eiffel Tower. The shank is also covered in tiny gleaming white melée stones also set in micropavé.
The ring is designed to be as dainty and lightweight as possible both in overall metal weight and thickness of the shank as well as in the micropavé details. The ring is lighter-weight than it looks in these blown-up photos.
It is very difficult to set micropavé at this size, this ring represents an enormous amount of work setting the ninety tiny melée stones.
In my opinion it is not worth spending money on solid precious metals, because only the outside surface is visible! This ring is sterling silver (a semi-precious metal) but is electroplated with rhodium (a precious, platinum-like metal), so it is just as bright as a platinum ring. The rhodium plating will usually last for about two years, and costs about $20 to touch up at a local jeweler.
Also, I do not believe in using precious stones linked to global conflicts, and I do not believe in promoting deceptive and brain-washing slogans like "diamonds are forever" or "diamonds are a girl's best friend". I use lab-created sapphire/ruby (i.e. corundum) for almost all my rings, because it is chemically EXACTLY the same as sapphire/ruby out of the ground. It is not just a simulant -- sapphire/ruby is one of the few crystal structures that we can re-create exactly in the lab. Lab-created corundum refracts light the same way as sapphire/ruby, it can be doped chemicals that produce the exact same colors, the only thing that can scratch lab-created corundum is is diamond just as the only thing that can scratch out-of-the-ground sappire/ruby is diamond, etc. In my opinion, there is no point whatsoever paying $4,000 to $12,000 for a sapphire out of the ground when you can have TRUE sapphires in your rings that were lab-created, but for a fraction of the price. Save your money :-)
I have a matching eternity band / wedding band that may be purchased with this engagement ring. (It is channel-set rather than set in V-cut micropave to protect the stones on the inside of the hand when gripping hard objects.) The cost of the set (engagement ring + eternity band) is $379. Please send me a message if you are interested.
