You are saying you don’t want an airline, correct? That means you just need a setting without an airline, don’t get a halo made for a certain size and then put a bigger diamond in it. That will look super wonky.

Not just wonky, but the girdle will sit too high and be unsupported.Bad.

They do create settings “without airlines”. Doing it your way would mean the stone sticks up too high and you see a big gap under it. It would also leave the stone more exposed.

For example this setting is created especially for this diamond and to not have an airline, it is not too big for the setting (Victor Canera Emilya):

To contrast, this ring was specifically designed for this centre diamond and to have an airline:

Some people like airlines, some don’t.

There are options for all!

 I know mine is heart shaped but I designed it so there is no air line. I much prefer the centre stone and halo blending together, still looking like separate stones but still blended together. It’s much neater in my opinion.

My ring doesnt photograph very well, but here it is. The center stone is set much higher than the halo so it looks like it almost overlapps the halo.

I agree with what

RayKay said — if you don’t want a gap, get a setting custom-made for the halo so it sits flush. Trying to overcorrect by buying a too-small ready-made halo isn’t going to do the trick.

I agree with PPs look for a setting with no airline. 

This is mine, it’s designed to be completely flush

My sapphire sits higher than the setting but so far I have had no issues.
