I don’t have a halo but

a) I like your idea; and

b) your nails are really really nice natural nails.

Your ring idea sounds really cool! I don’t have one exactly like you described but the concept is somewhat similar with a gemstone center stone and diamond halo. This is a right hand ring and my ring size I think is 6 in US sizing. I am not sure of the dimensions of the center stone because this is a vintage ring.

@futuremrscjs:  Your ring is absolutely gorgeous! To your question regarding large stones, no I never get tired of my large stone I have a 5ct engagement ring and I have an emerald halo that’s about 4 1/2 carats I never found a problem with it being too large and I’ve never experienced shrinkage.

Go try some rings on so that you get an idea of the size and the comfort factor. You may find that one particular size suits your hand. And this is important – the ring needs to flatter your hand rather than just being a thing (albeit a very pretty thing) stuck on it.

I think that your proposed design is very beautiful but don’t personally like the look of full finger coverage. Bigger is not necessarily better – but each to her own.

If you are worried about ring shrinkage I refer you to my post four years ago on 60 ways to make your diamond look bigger!

Dear futuremrscjs, I think the ring will be gorgeous and will be lovely on your hand.  I like that you’re going to pair it with a plain band.  As far as whether you’ll want to wear it all the time, even at home, that will remain to be seen, but look at Kate Middleton – she has a similar set and you never see her without her sapphire and diamond engagement ring – it’s just like part of her.

@futuremrscjs:  I am not sure of the emerald halo dimensions I just know it’s a 3.45 center with 1 carat double halo with diamonds on band ad pictured.  My engagement ring is all over this site so just look up my screen name but the dimensions are 15.29x863x5.43 on a size 6.5 finger.   Here is the emerald.

Your ring will be stunning! I have a morganite with moissanite halo and it’s pretty large on my size 7 finger. I use it as a back up for when I want color. I also have a moissanite graduated halo back up ring in yellow gold, here’s a pic of that one and it’s smaller. I’m not home so I can’t get the dimensions but will post them later if you would like.

sorry the double pic is all I had of this ring.

@futuremrscjs:  this sounds gorgeous!!! I love Kristen coffin designs! I have a massive finger compared to you lol (size 7.25 according to jewelry stores but I always order at least an 8 cuz I like it to be loose & my fingers swell in heat or with hiking which we do almost daily) buuut I do have an intense halo & love a lot of finger coverage. I have never regretted having a larger ring & lately have even been experiencing shrinkage so I def think it’s real! Center stone over 2 carats pave side stones on band not sure total carat weight
