I am considering the Blue Nile oval halo engagement ring here http://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/oval-shaped-halo-diamond-engagement-ring_41116?elem=img&track=product
or the cushion halo here http://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/cushion-halo-diamond-engagement-ring-platinum_49864?elem=img&track=product
but have no ide what size of center stone I should get for my size 7 not-so-long fingers, so I was wondering if anyone had any photos they could share of these rings on their finger.
Thank you so much! Any help is greatly appreciated!

It posted and now won’t let me edit my comment – mine is not a halo, but it gives some perspective. My Darling Husband did order me a 2ct pink sapphire for our anniversary (in a halo setting), I will post pictures when it arrives. I think for a size seven anything from a 1-2 cts will look lovely.

Only you can say how big of a stone you want. Look at pics where people list carat size and Ring size , and see what looks good to you. Personally, after looking at tons of picks, I decided that anything under ._ where _ = ring size looks to small to me. So I knew that bc I’m a size 6, I wanted at least a .6ct stone. For you, I would want at least a .7. But again, it’s personal preference

As PPs said, it will be a personal preference.
Since our priorities were to buy a house (i.e. saving up for downpayment), we went shopping together and ended up with an e-ring that was significantly below what Darling Husband was planning to spend. When I recently had my ring cleaned & inspected, Darling Husband came along. I was like, hm.. I’ve always wondered how larger diamonds looked on my finger. So, we are going to upgrade my engagement ring for a significant anniversary much later on; the jeweller allows us to trade my existing e-ring in for the value Darling Husband paid for. (Instead of getting an anniversary ring)
My wedding band is forever, but I’m not emotionally attached to my engagement ring. 0.53 ctw; size 7 roughly. I’ve got short and stubby hands.

how much finger coverage do you want?
is budget a consideration?

I think 1.2 – 1.4 are lovely sizes for the centre stones in a halo ring. Substantial and the proportions work well with the melee. Much bigger and the final finger coverage is very large, which isn’t for everyone.

What carat size to pick is such a personal thing, and also impacted by a lot of outside considerations, such as budget and the other 3 Cs. It also depends on how much finger coverage you want, and might change depending on how big you want your halo diamonds to be.
I think the very best way to choose the right carat size for you is to go to stores and try on all different sizes, from small to big. That way, you can see what looks best on your finger and what makes you happiest.
I am around a size 7-7.5.
My original ERing has a center that is (I think) around .53. TCW between .75-1. Not a halo, though.
My anniversary ring has a .90 round center. TCW is around 2.4. Again, not a halo.

I just posted this on another thread, but in case it’s helpful- 8×6 oval moissanite with small halo. I think the moissanite is like a 1.2-1.3 ct equivelent? 7.5 is my ring size.

My finger size is a little smaller than yours (6), but I do have a cushion halo e-ring. My center stone is .77 and the tcw is about 2 carats. For me to have a halo and not compromise my setting, I couldn’t go bigger than .77. The integrity of my setting was more important than the size of my center stone. Also, I think .77 would look great as a solitaire as well, it just depends on your taste.

Size 7. diamond is a .85 solitaire 6.15mm. The same carrot weight can be vastly different in size so look at the mm of diamonds your compare
