Natural yellow diamonds that are round are VERY rare, just so you are aware.  I have a cushion, but its not a halo so I wont bother to post it (for the millionath time). 

Good luck on your search!

I don’t have what you’re looking for, so I didn’t post a pic but I think it will depend on your perception of ‘too large’ that helps you figure out what size to order.  I wear a size 6 and my ring is a .46 ct center in a halo (1.16 all together including a pave band) and I think if I went too much bigger in the center it would look too big for my personal taste.  Just a thought.  

I would suggest going to a jewelry store and trying on different size rings (including solitaires, I don’t know how your area is but very few places here have anything with a halo in stock) to see what you like on your finger size-wise.

Costco.com has yellow diamond halos, I don’t think they are round though. But it’s worth a shot to take a look.

I suggest you take a look at the diamondsbylauren.com site. It’s a smaller jeweler located in the diamond district in NYC. I used a lot of his products as inspriation for my ring and we almost purchased through him because he specializes in colored diamonds and has a HUGE inventory of canaries, non-fancy yellows, pinks, blues, you name it. He takes very detailed, up-close photos of every individual stone and even videos in a lot of cases. If I were to order a stone through someone it would be him. 

On another note. It’s not a proper canary – it’s a non-fancy yellow (S-T), size 4.5 finger, halo, 1.5 cushion. Thought it was a size 5, found out recently I was wrong. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope it helps. Good luck on your search!

I have a 1.24 c.c stone on a 6.5 finger size. My fingers are normal and feminine but look super chubby in pix….I would say I can get away with a larger ring because my fingers aren’t super skinny. I am at 2.10c total? (that includes my band)

I’m working with Laurie Sarah right now on some earrings and she’s soooo great!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/LaurieSarahDesigns?section_id=5259570  Maybe you would be able to find something there?  I would message her to see if she has any stones that match what you’re looking for.  She is always more than willing to send lots of photos before making you commit. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a radiant cut surrounded by a halo. I am a size 5 1/4 and the center stone is slightly over 1 carat.  It is not the beautiful yellow you are looking for but it may help ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m probably too late to be of help to @DanielleUm: but I was recently in the same boat – I wanted a canary diamond, but had never seen one in real life and couldn’t find one in my town in a normal setting (I did find a few canary diamond rings in town, but they were so cocktail-like that I couldn’t get a real idea).

A local jeweller put me on to this tip: find a regular CZ or diamond ring in the setting you are thinking of getting. Take a yellow Crayola WASHABLE marker and colour in the face of the stone (ASK the jeweller first! lol). The maker washes off in regular soap and water.

I almost died when the jeweller pulled out the marker and started colouring on a diamond, but it worked! I got see what my eventual ring would look like with a non-clear centre stone.
