I think a single halo would look best because two will distract from the actual stone, especially at that size. I have a size 7 finger and wear a 2 ct diamond with a single halo.
I think it provides good finger coverage and definitely doesn’t look “tiny.”

Single halo!! I think double halos are kind of tacky and only used with really small stones

I have a 2.2 ct diamond in a thin halo. My fingers are size 7 and it doesn’t look small. But I’m not going for the ginormous look…I’ll let others do that.

i ended up trying on a 1.30CT solitare today, i also love the timeless look but i still cant seem to decide… i feel like my fingers are hidious -_-
maybe 1 halo would make them look smaller?
defintely leaning towards a double halo looking tacky, if i decided on solitare id go 1.50ct +

Honestly I think that maybe your thinking that 1.3 carat is small because of the way the prongs are placed. my 2 carat diamond was set in a silver place holder with prongs like that while the jeweller made my halo setting, so I didn’t have to part with my stone while he was making it, and I thought it was small ( a 2 carat is definitely NOT small) my fingers are quite puffy, but I think it was the way the prongs were that gave it that look as opposed to say a classic Tiffany solitaire. I love halos single and double! but I’m a bling lover and for me bigger is better in terms of chunkier stones and settings suit my chubby fingers better! Good luck bee!

That 1.3 carat is facing up pretty small for its weight (looks like a 1 ct). This has to do with the cut qualit. My guess is that it’s not AGS or GIA certified and is cut “steep and deep.” Try visiting an independent jeweler who stocks GIA orAGS stones and trying some on. AGS retailers are less common than GIA retailers. Try browsing around Pricescope if you want some help. I strongly recommend buying online – whiteflash or Brian Gavin diamonds. ID jewelry has a brick and mortar store in NYC but does a lot of online business and I highly recommend them.
