Can you post an image of the moissaniteco ring you’re looking at? Posters might be able to remember better if they have a visual representation of what you’re looking for.

I think with that petite halo a 1 carat center will not be overwhelming and once you wear it for a little while you’ll definitely get used to the size! I have a 1.25 carat and when I first got it, it was HUGE. After about 6 months of wearing it everyday I got used to the size and even got “shrinkage”! I agree with your mother and I would go w/ the 1 ct if I were you. 🙂 Good luck!

 I love the pave shank with the halo surrounding the ceter stone ring. I personally almost went with one of those as opposed to the ring I have now. My only problem with the halo ring is that sometimes, depending on who made them, I can either love it or hate it. Sometimes when I see the halo ring, the center stone looks like it’s too “sunk in” into the halo, if you know what I mean. It has to be just right for me, and the shank has to be just the right size for me to really love it. It was too much for me to pick the perect one. For example.


I don’t like how this diamond looks like it is sunk in. In my opinion, the higher the center stone is set, the bigger it looks. If someone told me that center stone was 1.5 carats, I wouldn’t believe them (I think it’s 2 ct by the way). The shank is thin and the diamond is too low.

This ring on the other hand is better in my opinion. The shank seems to be getting thicker and the diamond seems to be getting higher. I really like this ring. I also like that there’s no space between the halo and the diamond.

With this ring for instance, see how there is noticable space between the diamond and the halo. It could be because the center stone is on the smaller side. Sometimes when you go with a smaller center stone, the space left between doesn’t look that great in my opinion.

Ring shopping is some tricky stuff lol. I do love this setting, despite the fact that it seems hard to pick the right size. I think your best bet is to just go in person and try on as many as you can. I know Kay and Zales have this setting, probably even Helzberg. Even if you’re not going to buy from one of those stores and you plan on purchasing a ring online, go there to try on to get an idea of what size stone you want. Good luck!!!!

@allyouneedislove:  Are you against diamonds? If not, you could get a .5 carat diamond in a halo setting quite easily, and it would likely end up being similar price or less expensive to a larger moissanite depending where you bought it from. Or maybe another stone altogether.

If you aren’t opposed to diamonds, Blue Nile has a ring setting called Floating Halo which is a very similar design and you could choose a smaller center stone.
