it would be best to ask a jeweler.  so many factors can go into this.  depth vs width of the diamond, size of your finger.  its hard to know from a photo.

Anytime you have a halo that can accomodate a stone that’s a full half carat larger or smaller, one of two things has to happen. Either the smaller stone will have an airline, or the larger stone will have to be set higher above the halo. In other words, one size halo cannot have both stones set so they look identical. Your best bet is to have a halo made to fit the stone you are setting, otherwise you will need to ask the jeweler how the stone you have will look in the setting. I am betting that if that halo can accomodate a 1.5 ct stone, it will leave an airline with a 1 ct.

I would talk to a jeweller about building you a halo around your stone. Rather tHan trying to fit your unique stone into a prebuilt setting.

MarryMe826:  pretty setting! Like a PP said above, consider an airline halo or the stone being set above the halo like a graduated look. My e-ring has both those elements and I think it looks quiet nice. My stone is .7 but I would think it would look nice in a 1 ct too!

Just make sure to ask the jeweler. My current ring, I feel like my diamond is a touch too big for the setting. But like the other ladies said, if it can accommodate a 1.5 carat, your stone will likely leave a small gap. But you never know. It depends on the cut of your diamond. I looked at my current setting with a diamond the same weight as mine. But the table of mine is larger. So my diamond looked different in it. 

It’s so hard to visualize! Good luck!
