Yes a cushion will look smaller than a round of the same weight, but not by too much. You could get a round stone on a cushion shaped halo. That is one of my favorite halo looks! Palladium is a great metal, and there aren’t any downsides of it that come to mind! Wish I could help out with pictures, but I am sure many bees can contribute with that part!

I have a palladium, halo Engagement Ring with a round center stone… I love the palladium, and it was much less expensive 🙂

I actually wanted a smaller center stone because I didn’t want it to sit up much higher than the ring.  I’m not positive about the exact specs… haven’t asked Darling Husband – But when we were looking at this ring before we were engaged, I think the center stone was between .3 and .4 carats.  Sorry I don’t have exact info for you.

I just got engaged a week ago, and we custom designed this ring (based on a Tacori that i loved, but we didn’t want to pay for the “name”): It is three round stones with a halo/pave setting around each one in a “square” shape…maybe you could do something like this with just the one stone if you don’t want three?  This is one carat total in the ring.

@6598731ssfse3:  “Yes a cushion will look smaller than a round of the same weight, but not by too much”

That’s not a hard and fast rule – cushions are so individually different, so OP you should look at the mm to compare to a round shape in a similar carat weight.

AshleyR83Yes, you’re definitely correct! I should have added, “depending on the cut” in my reponse somewhere! Smile

My ring is a .85 center stone with .25 carats in the halo. My center stone sits really low to my halo which I love (size 5.25 finger)

I am a total deal-finder and we order my ring online. PM me and I can send you the specs/price, etc.

@BrookieCookie9:  You have some awesome claws holding your center stone in place!! That will be so secure and it looks like such a great part of the design. It seriously stopped me in my tracks as i scrolled down the page. TOO cool.

@MrsHoneyC:  Thanks! I think there are 16 holding that center stone in place (if I counted right). I am left handed so I wanted a ring that would be totally durable and I think the claws help do just that.
