You could probably reduce the thickness of the split ring slightly with a file (or a lathe). You don't want to go to far, but perhaps enough to cut the gap in half. It wouldn't make a big difference, but it might help cosmetically. However, you'd have to be very careful not to significantly taper it otherwise you could damage the headset.
