A halo could help the stone look bigger, but I think round solitare rings are amazing! You could always set it in a solitaire setting until you find what you really want.

i love rounds in square halos or a round halo, it would definitely look beautiful!

I would suggest going to a jewelry store and trying on all kinds of styles. Most are displayed with 1 ct cz. Any setting you like will look good with 1 ct but it depends on what you like. I prefer a solitaire, but you may like a halo. I have found what looks best on my hand isn’t always what I thought would look best.

There are some tacori settings with unique halos that really maximize round stones, if you want to look into them.  Here is one I like

I would agree with going to a jewelry store to view other round cut diamonds and how they have been set. Choosing an e ring is much like choosing a wedding dress, very dependent upon your personal style and taste. I personally love a solitare setting and that’s how I chose to have my e ring diamond set. I think halos and some multi stone settings look too busy but that’s my personal preference. I mean, do diamonds ever really look bad? 🙂

I think a square halo or a double round halo would really show off the stone and make it appear bigger.  Plus I love the vintage touch of the halo.

@km310:  That’s beautiful 🙂 the halo will make the stone look bigger and the plain shank will make the center pop.
