Is a 9×7 center stone overkill…?

I think it will look fine! Maybe a little big with the halo…

@birgen:  I like it! I looked at the hand pic they had and yes, it’s BIG, but to me, the bigger the better! It definitely does NOT look like a cheap cocktail ring, so go for it!

I wear a 5.5 and anything larger than 1.5 or 2 ct looks huge on me.  A 2.5 ct plus halo will look ginormous but if you like that look, go for it.  Keep in mind your lifestyle and if a stone like that is going to get in your way.

I wear a 5.5 and my center diamond is 1.5 carats. I definitely think it’s big enough but definitely wouldnt mind a little bigger! I think either one will be gorgeous!

I think it’ll look perfect on your finger and no, it shouldn’t look too big on you. Here’s my ring for reference. I wear size 4 and the center stone is 2.6ct.

@birgen:  I have a 9×7 oval! I think it looks good, but I have a size 7.25 finger. I think a halo and on such a small finger it might look a little crazy! But it’s your ring. It will be beautiful, and you and your SO are the ones who should love it!
