Your goal sounds reasonable! You should decide if you like smaller halo stones or larger ones, since I find the proportion to be as important (if not more important) as overall size. For reference, my halo has a diameter of about 9 mm, but my center is a 1.25 carat equivalent moissanite, so it’s 7 mm across and the halo adds 1 mm on each side. My ring size is 5.

Also note that closeup shots can make the ring look relatively larger compared to the finger than distance shots. Here’s another.

Thanks! It’s from Moissanite Co 🙂 

I actually really like larger halo stones when they give the halo a bit of a scalloped edge and metal doesn’t show along the outside of the halo. I don’t know if that makes sense… but I think it looks a bit like a flower.

I have a double halo with a 1.01 ct cushion cut center stone. Ring size is 5.75. I THINK TCW is 1.8 or so.

My center stone is a .65 carat. And my finger size is is between a 5.5 and a 6. 🙂

They also make wedding rings that are enhancers. So they form a halo around your solitair. You might be able to do that if you still wanted to keep your original ring, like you mentioned. 🙂

I ALWAYS wanted a solitaire, but DH picked my ring out on his own.  I couldn’t be happier with my halo!  The thing I Love most about it is the plain band with it.  It makes it more unique!

Honestly, I’m terrible about being a woman and don’t remember the stats!

@MrsLuca:  Hi! I love halos of all kinds! Mine is a little different, my then fiance picked this halo of the few I liked best. 

Antique cushion center, 1.6ct, I think 6.8×6.8mm, and my ring size is 4.75. If you shop around for settings, you can really get a deal!

Hi. I am replying to you from the other thread. My ring is a size 7. Center stone is just over a carat at 1.01 and the total ring is at 3.01 carats. I am not sure of the diameter of the halo. My ring was custom made. Hope that helps.
