@Janineforever:  not the best picture, but this is my size 7 finger in my grandmothers engagement ring. I think a 1.25 with a halo will look perfect on your finger. I tried 1 carat solitaires on at different stores and they are just not for me, too small for my finger. So when it’s our time to get engaged, we are getting a 1.5 carat equivalent round moissanite with a pave band. Beautiful ring by the way! It’s gonna be gorgeous on your finger 🙂

@Someday_Mrs_Maguire:  I should add that this ring is antique and is a very tiny diamond, around .20-.25 carats in a square setting to make it look bigger.

I think you will be fine with finger coverage! My center is a 1.11 cushion and my finger is a little smaller, it’s about a sz 7 (ring is sized to 7 1/4 but is way too loose, getting re-sized soon). Anyway, here it is

my finger is smaller (size 6) and I have a .96 carat, according to the chart posted above, we’ll have about the same finger coverage, except yours is a halo and mine is a solitare so yours will look even bigger than mine.

Hope that helps a little

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture that fits your stats, but just wanted to say that I think it’s going to look perfect.

I’m a 5.75 (essentially a 6) and have a 1.1 cushion center with halo, and it’s pretty big. Bigger than I anticipated and honestly I’d be happy with something a little smaller! So I think a 1.25 with halo is going to look great on a size 8 finger.

My finger is a size 4. Here it is with a 7mm (1.25 ct equivalent if it was a diamond) black sapphire.

@JMBred:  Thanks! It’s sterling silver. I got them on sale on eBay. They were $10, and I paid $3.50 each on sale. I got them to see if I like the size of the center stone on my finger. They are size 5, so a size too big. I should have mentioned that.

1.25 is quite a large size, even on a size 8 finger. I think there is an optimal finger/stone size region (some rings can look so small the finger can look like it’s “eating” the ring, but that’s usually not really the fault of the stone…it usually means it’s a smaller stone in too thin metal and often too tight as well) but that chart posted above sets an optimal region is a bit on the large size. …Then again, I don’t like big honkers, because I feel they can get to a proportion that looks unfeminine, and after a certain size stone it doesn’t matter how thin the metal is, the stone itself is too big. If only celebs would realize that and stop wearing what looks like little girl dress-up time rings!

In any case, I don’t think you have any reason to worry… your ring won’t look small for sure!
