That centre diamond looks absolutely perfect sized.
Too much bigger and it will look like a cocktail ring, unless you want to do a different shape altogether such as an oval.
As for halos, I’m not personally a fan because I think the center stone tends to get lost in them due to a lack of contrasf but I have seen some avant garde ones I like:
but again even that is a coloured center stone, and a diamond might get lost in it.
If you really want a bit more finger coverage, then a pair of ~.25 carat side diamonds might be your best option.

If you could go thinner on the band it’ll make the diamond appear much larger! I have a .91 carat and my band is 1.6mm and it makes the stone pop 🙂

i think your ring is gorgeous and compliments your ha d nicely!!
I’m actually looking into that setting for a diamond that I was gifted recently. I am having the same problem as you, though. My diamond isn’t large-it’s a 1.16 but faces up as barely a carat. Probably more like .90. This is because most of the weight is in the bottom due to how it was cut. This is probably the same situation with yours. I have a 1.4 radiant that faces up larger because it has a large table.
I’m toying with adding a halo to my round, but am hesitant because there is a halo on my radiant.
Keep us posted as to what you decide!

Have a look at this link, it’s a halo sleeve that might be able to help with the look you want. It doesn’t alter the ering in anyway and is quite inexpensive. https://nationaljewelcreations.com/product/custom-halo-sleeve-existing-solitaire/

hey Bees! I am not sure if anyone cares but I just went to the jeweller and planning to upgrade to a 1.8+ diamond with a tiffany setting.
