Hello everyone! My husband has offered to upgrade my ring for our anniversary, I like the look of halos. I can’t decide if I want a halo of small diamonds or larger ones.
I worry the larger ones would look more like a cocktail ring, I think small diamond halo would be understated and bridal looking..but will it have the sparkle effect? Could anyone with a halo show pictures? And opinions on diamond size for the halo? The diamond I will be getting will probably be in the .6-.75 range, it will be a round cut.

To me, it all depends on the setting and the hand it’s on. I have a 1.25 carat center stone with a larger halo and to me, it doesn’t look cocktail-y.
Definitely head to a store and try on all kinds of different sizes to see what best suits you!
ETA: Oh, I forgot to add a picture. I am not sure what size the stones are on the halo, but the width of the halo itself is 2mm.

I personally like the smaller halo but it depends on your center stone size as well, dont want the halo to be overwhelming

My center diamond is round and .75ct and I think it looks great in the halo. It had tons of sparkle too!

I think larger halo stones take away from the main stone I would go smaller it really enhances it!

Mine has small diamonds. It sparkles amazingly. I think larger diamonds in the halo can take away from the center.

Mine looks very similar to @Chrissy26: and I agree. Smaller diamonds sparkle like crazy and they really enhance my center diamond, not take away from it.

@BeautyRushes: Delicate halos are my jam. Especially because I think the purpose is to enhance, not overpower!

@BeautyRushes: I prefer smaller diamonds in halos, I like larger ones when the halo is a floral style. Overall. my vote is smaller diamonds.
Here is mine.

@BeautyRushes: I’d definitely do smaller diamonds in the halo- I like the focus to be on the centre stone!

Smaller and more delicate all the way! Like PP’s, I think larger halos distract from the centre stone (although many can be very pretty).

I normally prefer small halos, but @SunflowerGarden: has one of my favourite rings on the Bee.

If anything, smaller diamonds are more sparkly IMO.
I have a yellow diamond but the tiny white diamond halo sets my center stone off immensely.
I am definitely partial to smaller diamonds in halos.

Mine has larger diamonds in the halo. We had it made with diamonds given to us by my FMIL (center is 1.05ct and there are 30 small rounds in the halo and the band), so I didn’t really have a choice. I do love it though .
