1/2 CT. T.W. Diamond Composite Frame Ring in 10K White Gold
It's absolutely stunning!
My fiance and I looked in the store and online for a list of engagement rings that I loved. He would then decide from the list with the general style that I liked the most. I like the dainty, round halo look, but when we found this ring online, the double halo of this ring took my breath away! It is so beautiful!!! For the center stone only being 1/2 carat, the double halo tricks you into thinking the inner stone is MUCH larger! (And friends notice that it could be a much larger diamond, too!)
It looks expensive, it dazzles, it feels antique, it's comfortable. I get so many compliments on this ring, even from strangers!
The tiny band is perfect for my dainty fingers. The outer halo is separated a little and set lower than the large stone and inner halo. I love how the light leaks through the outer halo, causing the inner stone and middle halo to be almost seen as one large diamond. I also love the gradual decrease in size of the diamonds as you get to the outer ring.
You should purchase the Lifetime Protection Plan on this ring, as it doesn't come with it's own warranty. I wear a size 4 & 3/4 and had my ring sized, inspected, and cleaned for free after he proposed to me, since the online store only sells size 6 and up. The Lifetime Protection Plan will pay for sizing, cleaning, inspection, and damage from normal wear for life. The Zales store only took about a week and a half to size this ring.
It does not come with a contour band, but my fiance and I plan to purchase a single dainty wedding band adorned with small diamonds all around to place on the same finger with the engagement band on the outside. This is the style I would personally prefer, as a contour band would change the entire look of this simply beautiful engagement ring. I love how my new wedding band will look unattached to my engagement ring.
I was skeptical about the clarity, color, carat, and cut of this ring at first, but I can't visibly see any flaws. The diamond looks clear and is colorless. It also doesn't sit too high off my finger, so I can feel comfortable wearing it everyday without it getting caught on things.
It's a fabulous ring at a perfect price. I can't imagine having any other ring and I will be satisfied for a very long time! And you cannot beat the price! If you love vintage, romantic pieces as I do, you are sure to love this timeless ring.

I have to admit, I am EXTREMELY hard to please. Mostly because I am constantly changing my mind.
When I knew my fiancÚ was getting ready to propose, I started looking at rings to give him some ideas.
If I'm being honest, I really wanted the ring to be a pretty good size. I knew we wouldn't be able to afford a huge diamond, so I started looking at diamond clusters as an alternative.
This ring is the exact style I wanted and the dainty halo is absolutely beautiful. It was a great price for a good size ;)
I was really nervous about him purchasing it online without me ever seeing it, but when he got down on one knew and put it on my finger I was thrilled. It's beautiful!! Everything I hoped it would be!
If you love the halo style, and are trying to keep within a budget, this ring is a great choice! I couldn't be happier.

Great ring at a great price. It really sparkles and shines. Just my style, but it is a little hard to fit with a wedding band. Note that you will need to have a contour wedding band with this ring if you don't want gaps between the ring and the band (see photos). I have traditional non-contoured band and I don't mind the gaps.

PICTURES DON'T DO IT JUSTICE!
My boyfriend and I ordered this ring online as my engagement ring not knowing what to expect but oh my goodness this ring is breath taking! No picture will do it any justice at all but it is amazing especially for such a low price.I also love that it is very light and does not feel heavy on my hand.
