One of the best ways to improve the look of your solitaire ring, is to add an accent diamonds halo around it. It makes any size center stone look twice as big. It brings more life to the ring! That was one of my last fabrication jobs, a simple plain shank with a halo setting solitaire. I think came out very nice! Check the pictures:

It’s a lot of fun, and a little crazy to work in miniatures like that. Take a look:
