    I voted smaller stone smaller halo because ho early I think going super big on everything makes it look costumer and a bit gaudy. Personally I wouldn’t even do a 2c center stone, but you should do whatever will make you the most happy! Also, the bigger your halo, the smaller it will make the center stone look in comparison.

    I love my ring but sometimes I wish I would have gone a bit smaller so that the halo stuck out more, to me it kind of looks like one large stone and I didn’t really want that effect.  Se how it kind of blends into itself?  This is a moissy 1 carat equiv, and it’s set with 1.2mm stones around to make the halo.

    The 1.5 halo already looks huge on your hand, so I’d definitely go with the smaller end of your options.

    hellen04 :  Are you ok with people knowing it’s a simulant? Also, do you know what cut you plan on choosing? One of the pictures you posted looked like an OEC.

    I think the 1.5 looks perfect!  The larger ones aren’t as elegant and look more costume-y.

    Great. Do you want the side stones and the halo width to match? 1mm might be too thin for the shank.

    hellen04 :  I have a 7.5mm moissy, alo on size 6. I actually like the proportions for me, but I wouldn’t mind going up to 8mm. my hands are short and chubby so I feel like anything bigger would be crazy overwhelming for me, but you have longer fingers which I think would help with the extra size if that’s what you like! I personally like the thinner halo because it does make my stone stand out a lot more 😀

    I like the 2ct with 1.5 melee… I think thicker halos are nicer than thinner halos in most situations as long as they aren’t xlose to the size of the center stone which they won’t be in your case. 

    I think your sister’s ring is stunning and similar to my idea of what I love, so I think you will be satisfied with 2ct and 1.5 melee

    My ring is 1.3 center and my melee is 1.5 I believe but not certain… Ring size 5.5
