Here’s a halo with a centerstone around that size:

To be perfectly honest, I think a stone like that would look a lot nicer in a 3 stone than in a halo.  .35 carats is quite small, perhaps to small for many people’s tastes.  It would look really nice with other antique cuts to complement it.  For example, a look like this (the sidestones are about the same size as the stone you have):

 

 I think it would give a little more oomp.  If you don’t want to spend too much a bigger center diamond, you could get another antique cut diamond around .35 carats to be another sidestone, and get a lab created sapphire or ruby as the bigger centerstone.  It wouldn’t end up being that expensive, would be durable enough for everyday wear, and I think would give a bit more substantial effect.  Something like this, for example:

I am having a halo ring made for my right hand.  I went by my jewelers to look at halo settings in person because pictures leave out a lot of details.  I noticed that he had .30 – .50 carat diamonds set in flowing halos.  They were very becoming.  This is the closest picture I could find that resembled what I saw.  It will at least give you an idea.  The center stone is right at .50 carats but they do make settings for the size diamond you have.

The halo ring I am having made for my right hand has a vintage inspired setting and is sold as an engagment ring.  However, I think it will look great as a RHR.  JMO though.

@MrsMc77:  Thank you!  I wasn’t sure if you were looking for something vintage or something a little more modern.  Both will work with your diamond.  Also, I found more pictures that is even more like what I found at the jewelers.  Pictures just don’t do these settings justice.  They really look beautiful from all angles and they showcase the center diamond, no matter what the size, beautifully.  The ones that I saw had prong set diamonds swirling like they were floating.  You couldn’t see metal on the halos just the diamonds, if that makes sense?…  I don’t think you will have a problem finding a setting that will showcase your diamond and the sentimental nature behind it,  will be priceless.  Laughing
