I don’t know where you’re from, but here in my area a 1.57 is nowhere near small! A 1 carat is PLENTY big. Anyway, here’s my 1.5 carat on a size 5.25. I know my fingers are smaller but it often seems too big for my liking. I think it would look better on your size. You have long slender fingers and I think a 1.57 carat would look amazing on you!

Lol I don’t think a 1.5 carat diamond in a halo would look small on anyone.

A 1.57 carat diamond plus halo is enormous.

Yeah that’ll look huge with a halo.

I don’t have a halo but I’m almost a size 7 (6.75). Here’s my 2.01 ct center. 1.57 with a halo is going to be pretty big. Just to give you some perspective, I get comments frequently on how large my ring is and I wouldn’t consider my fingers small. I also live in an area where gigantic rings are not uncommon.

Unless you’re hanging with the likes of Paris Hilton or Beyonce and such, I can’t fathom how a 1.57 center WITH a halo to boot could possibly be too small.

Go on diamdb.com and put in your ring size and mm size of your diamond.  You can also put in the mm for the diamond + halo.  This will give you a better idea of how large it will be on your hand.

I’m a size 7 and here’s a 7mm round moissanite which is supposed to be a 1.2ct equivalent.

1.29 carat center in a halo on a size 8 finger. I don’t think it looks small at all. Pardon my super dry hands. Lol.

I have a similar center stone size, cushion cut halo on a size 7 finger. 

Not too small.

I have smaller fingers; closer to a 5. My center stone is 1.51 with a halo, plus two smaller stones with halos. If I could go bigger, I would lol. But I like the coverage I get from three stone ring!

I think nothinggoldcanstay with her 5CT would say that 1.57 is way too tiny!  Anyone remember her? lol.
