mine is ER has a 7.61×5.6 diamond with .14carat halo. size 7.25 finger.  It’s not exactly what you asked for but I hope it helps. I don’t thinkl the difference between those two sizes will be noticeable.

In order to figure out which size is best for you, I recommend you print this (make sure it’s not set to page scaling and cut out the approximate sizes you’re considering (they have mm sizes listed). Place them on your finger and see which one you like more. You can even cut out a little extra white space and color it in a contrasting color to simulate the halo effect.

To me it doesn’t look like there’s a huge difference between the sizes you’re considering. I’m sure both would look great. It depends on your personal taste!


The following are not my rings, just found them doing a search on Weddingbee. Neither poster posted her ring size.

Mrs.D had a 1ct/7x5mm oval which was in a double halo. The first halo sits close to the center stone so it gives the illusion of being a larger center with a single halo in some pics. I’m guessing that close halo adds ~1mm so maybe you could look at the center+1st halo to estimate the size of the 8x6mm oval and then the  second halo gives you an estimate of how a halo would look with it.


mdancer78 has a 2.2ct/9x7mm oval enhanced halo from Moissanite Co. She said she could see a slight yellow tint only at a certain angle on an overcast day, hence the second photo.

MissMarple:  I was going to post a bunch of photos like you did but I was just too lazy, so I guess we evened each other out 😛

Hi! Yes that’s was my ring.  It was a size 6.5.  I did notice some yellow, especially in the shade/outside.  I would guess each halo was 1mm and the pp mentioned.
