    Welcome to the bee!

    Sorry if this sounds dumb, but what do you mean by pointers? Do you mean prongs?

    @Mommy2Boox2:  yes, points are the size of the diamond.  25 points is a 1/4 ct or .25 carat.

    Oh ok. I see!

    My gut reaction is to go w. the smaller stones because tiny micropave is just sooo sparkly, and big stones in halos look less nice IMO, but then you mention there would be gaps w. 1.5, but not 2, and I don’t like the idea of gaps either. Maybe go with 2? It’s really hard to visualize all this I have to say πŸ™

    Can your jeweler show you the difference between 1.5 and 2 in real life? Like show a ring with 1.5 and with 2?

    My halo is 5/8 pointers and my shank is 1 pointers.

    I prefer really small micropave, but this isn’t the case with a lot of people. I would prefer the 1.5 pointers, but if there will be gaps, I think the 2’s are the way to go.
