Is this ring too much? 1.5 carat Halo.. Anyone have anything like this to see?

dflynn :  I’m with other bees—narrow the band and the halo. With the halo being so chunky in the image above, the center stone doesn’t look to be 1.5cts…it ends up looking more like a cluster ring. If you’re paying for a 1.5ct, you want that sucker to STAND OUT!

I think the bees are trying to point you towards something more like this where the halo diamonds don’t take sonmuch away from the center stone.

Mostly commenting to follow but that’s a full on ring with both channel set band and halo for a size 4 finger :/ I’m size 5 and opted for a 1.5mm band with just under 1ct diamond and one year later I still think it’s huge. Do you know what her dream ring looks like? What do her friends have? It might be too chunky for a European gal

For me it is too chunky and the halo comptes with instead of accenting the diamond.

I hope you don’t take offense to this statement but what’s the cut and color of the stone? I tend to feel that rings that are busy with large halos and diamonds everywhere are trying to mask a less than quality stone. If your diamond is great quality you really don’t want to hide that, that’s the star of the show so definitely keep that in mind. I also agree the band may be too thick but if she’s into chunky then she’ll love it!

Seems like this is a question for a best friend or sister. Someone who knows her taste and isn’t shooting in a dark alley with a blindfold.
