You might want to consider posting this in the rings thread, you will get more answers there I think!  Also, specify do you wish to only see diamonds ? (many here have moissanites).  Best of luck!

Hi I think that’s a great choice because that’s what I have lol. I love the sparkle of a round diamond it has the most fire but also prefer the shape of cushion. This style is best of both worlds. My diamond is like 2.30 (something like that) and the halo adds another .40-.50 probably. The diamond is I SI1 Ideal cut so it hides the flaws well.

I would highly recommend buying the diamond online try Blue Nile or James Allen and then go to a good neighborhood jeweler for the setting so you can customize it more and see the setting in person. Cushion halos are really popular so I’m sure they will have several for you to look at.

PS there are thicker chunkier halos and more petite with smaller diamonds like mine.

Oh and as far as what carat weight ..you should stick to what you can afford and buy shy. So instead of a 1.00 carat look for .90 for example because you can save a lot. Also look for Ideal or excellent cuts and don’t go below the SI range in clarity. The halo will make the ring look bigger too so that’s a plus.

good luck

1.6ct round, AGS Ideal cut, VS2, I color, finger size 5.5, Tacori 2620 setting.  Purchased from Whiteflash – they were wonderful to work with, and had a large selection of excellent quality diamonds and settings.

Mine is a moissanite, but for size comparison it may be helpful.  It’s the diamond equivalent of a 1.5 ct.  I wear a 5.25 to 5.5 ring
