Mine is a .75ct in the center an I think it looks fine. If you want a halo I say go for it!

@RK312:  Thanks! I always thought I wanted a solitaire but when we went to just browse I saw this one and loved it!

I love love love halos but its definitely a setting you will have to be comfortable with and deal with the talk of halos being trendy. Mine is .61 center stone

I think your stone is the perfect size for a halo. Mine has a .70ct centre. I think my ring size is 4.25.

I really like halos and I think your jeweler is wrong about them only being for larger stones. I’ve seen beautiful examples here on the bee of stones as small as .25 that look amazing in a halo setting.

I don’t have a halo setting as my husband doesn’t care for them but I love them!

I honestly thought that halos were more often on smaller rings.  I think they look amazing no matter what size the center stone is.  Don’t listen to the jeweller..what do they know about what YOU like?

If I were you, I would go with a halo but keep it a smaller halo (e.g. Harry Winston micropave style). Mine is a very similar style to the HW micropave halo and I get a ton of compliment on it. I have a slightly larger cushion. Mine is a 1.06 ct cushion brilliant, F, VS1, and has hearts and arrows. I don’t think the halo detracts from the fire at all.

@RK312: yes, it’s a round. Lots of people think it’s bigger but I think must just have tiny hands! You’re right about the vintage thing btw…I’ve seen original versions of my ring from the Edwardian period that were identical.

I actually think halos look better on smaller stones! And a lot of time can make the stone look bigger WITHOUT detracting from it. I say go for it!
