@MissBennet: This chart is really helpful about how much a diamond covers a finger:

Mine is a .74 carat round in a pave halo, but i figured that it’s close enough! My ring size is 5 just FYI.

Honestly honey, go to a jewelry store and try one on. There is no way to know until there is actually a rock to visualize it.

They don’t have to know you don’t plan on buying it there. πŸ™‚

 

I wish I would have before ordering my e ring w/ halo. It appears to be huge…overbearing almost. See one in person on your hand FIRST – you won’t regret it!

Good luck! How exciting!

My ring came with a .75 CZ in the center that we replaced with his grandmother’s diamond that I would guess is about .45 carats.  Also, I wear a ring size 6.25.  I agree though to try on rings because a lot of halos are set differently and therefore look differently on your hand.

@MissBennet: I’m so glad to hear someone else was having the same concern! I worried and worried about this, so today after I got off work went straight to Macy’s (figured it would be less busy then the stores in the mall) and tried on some. I have a size 4 finger so a 1ct center with a halo looked ridiculous. I was shocked, like wow, I don’t even want a big diamond! I think we’ll go with a .75 round or cushion cut, I haven’t decided yet. 

It really just depends on how big your finger is, but really, go to a store and try some on. No one needs to know you are just “looking”. 

P.S. I advise not going to Helzberg Jewelers. I went tonight and the women in there were SO rude. I’m just biased now, but I’d never do business with them.

@MissBennet: Good luck! I can’t wait to hear what you decide on getting. You will be amazed at what you think looks good but looks totally different in person. I was really shocked tonight but super happy that I finally took the time to go look. I had been worrying for so long and now I can send my “final choice” email to Fiance and hopefully get my ring in a few weeks. 

Yay! excited for you πŸ™‚
