DancinDarlin:  I think a .25 isn’t possible for a halo they usually set .50’s and up. I know you’re excited for a ring but don’t settle if it’s something you do not like. I personally do not like rounds either and I tried my hardest to like them and I just couldn’t go for it. If you feel if this will make him purpose sooner and you’re willing to change you’re taste in the ring then go for it! Good luck

Hi, I think thats a great idea! I love the idea of repurposing the diamond and its much cheaper than going out and buying a whole new ring! 

The great thing about a halo is that it makes the diamond look better. I have a .45 emerald cut diamond with a halo, and I love it. But emerald cuts face up bigger imo.vera_ring

0.25 carats is quite small for that style. A halo might end up looking more like a cluster instead. It’s not a bad thing, but it probably won’t achieve quite the look you want. The one in the image is around 0.75 carats I’m guessing.

You can definitely find halo settings to fit a diamond ~.25 carats. It would not have the same look as the example you posted due to the smaller centre stone, but it can still be very pretty. There are plenty of smaller carat weight halos out there, and they can be very blingy ant pretty!

I had this three stone halo ring, the centre stone was about 0.25 carats, just to show an example.

If the stone is too small for a halo, perhaps you could use it for a flower/cluster setting.

I love the ring you posted. My future engagement ring has his grandmother’s diamond (around .34 carats) with a halo. I haven’t seen the ring in person but I did have a huge role in designing it so I can say that it didn’t look weird to have the smaller center stone. 

Hopefully you won’t have to wait much longer!
