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 http://pics.bluenile.com/assets/chrome/pdf/diamond_carat_size_0810.pdf) 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.

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.
