    To me, it all depends on the setting and the hand it’s on. I have a 1.25 carat center stone with a larger halo and to me, it doesn’t look cocktail-y.

    Definitely head to a store and try on all kinds of different sizes to see what best suits you!

    ETA: Oh, I forgot to add a picture. I am not sure what size the stones are on the halo, but the width of the halo itself is 2mm.

    I personally like the smaller halo but it depends on your center stone size as well, dont want the halo to be overwhelming

    My center diamond is round and .75ct and I think it looks great in the halo. It had tons of sparkle too!

    I think larger halo stones take away from the main stone I would go smaller it really enhances it!

    Mine has small diamonds. It sparkles amazingly. I think larger diamonds in the halo can take away from the center.

    Mine looks very similar to  @Chrissy26:  and I agree. Smaller diamonds sparkle like crazy and they really enhance my center diamond, not take away from it.

    @BeautyRushes:  Delicate halos are my jam. Especially because I think the purpose is to enhance, not overpower!

    @BeautyRushes:  I prefer smaller diamonds in halos, I like larger ones when the halo is a floral style. Overall. my vote is smaller diamonds. 

    Here is mine.

    @BeautyRushes:  I’d definitely do smaller diamonds in the halo- I like the focus to be on the centre stone!

    Smaller and more delicate all the way! Like PP’s, I think larger halos distract from the centre stone (although many can be very pretty).

    Here’s mine:

    I normally prefer small halos, but @SunflowerGarden:  has one of my favourite rings on the Bee.

    If anything, smaller diamonds are more sparkly IMO.

    I have a yellow diamond but the tiny white diamond halo sets my center stone off immensely.

    I am definitely partial to smaller diamonds in halos.

    Mine has larger diamonds in the halo. We had it made with diamonds given to us by my Future Mother-In-Law (center is 1.05ct and there are 30 small rounds in the halo and the band), so I didn’t really have a choice. I do love it though Laughing.
