    I picked the 7mm. My ring is .75ct center diamond and .75ct halo on size 5.5

    I chose the right one because you said you’re adding a halo. I like there to be balance between the ring and skin so it’s not allll ring which to me starts to look like a cocktail, class, or superbowl ring. I’m a size 5.5 and have about a 1.5 carat solitaire which (IMO) achieves the skin/ring/skin balance but don’t know if a pic is helpful for you as it’s not a halo.

    I was literally going to say the same exact thing as MrsBuesleBee:  

    I think the right one is the right one 😉 But seriously it would be perfectly proportional with a halo.

    I would go with the smaller since you’re adding a halo. I didn’t read your post about the halo until after I hit submit on the poll, i just looked at the pictures.


    My ring is .61 carats with a detailed hexagon setting so it adds size similar to a halo, and i think it’s perfect for my size 5 finger.

    My finger is a size 6 and this is a 1/2ct princess cut on a 2mm band. I think it’s 4.5mmx4.5ish?

    I have a 1ct equivalent moissy and a 1.25 equivalent morganite.

    I would go with the larger stone personally. Shrinkage is a real thing! I have a 1.44 in a halo and size 5 finger, and I love the coverage it provides.
