Lucky you with your little fingers! I would go a little bit higher than .3, but that depends on your budget of course. The most important thing is to pick the right stone – one with an excellent cut. I always think 1ct looks nice, but that may be more than you want to spend.

danisweng:  i have almost that exact setting!! love round double halos!

i think a .3 might get a little lost in the double halo… i would say go at least .5 but consider something around .75 carat.

although my ring isn’t the specs you’re looking for, i am happy to share!  ๐Ÿ˜€ (i have giant hands haha my ring size is a 7.5. Fiance inherited his late mom’s ering which was a 1.5 solitaire. so my center is a 1.5 with .5 in the setting)

I think anything <.3ish ct will get lost and make it look like a cluster ring, and not really a double halo .. if that makes sense?

I have a 1ct round in a cushion double halo, size 7 finger

Mines a double halo cushion cut setting and center stone… When I originally tried on the ring the center stone was .67 and the Gabriel&Co setting only allowed up to a 1 carat cebter stone. I personally am a fan of anything big and blingy so I wanted a larger stone and Fiance had the company make the setting bigger to fit a 1.52 carat center stone. For me bigger is always better! Lol๐Ÿ˜Š

I don’t have a double halo to show you, but I have small fingers like you and if you don’t want the ring to look big then I suggest going with a stone around .75- 1 carat. It’s a great size, won’t get lost with two halos but won’t be too large.

For your reference, size 3 finger, center stone is 1.17.  I also feel with a double halo setting that a center stone of 0.3 will get lost in the halos.  Best of luck Bee.

danisweng:  I think it looks really pretty as pictured in your OP and that’s a .4 it seems.

danisweng:  I guess it depends what you want to notice first the halo or the centre stone.  Me I love big so was thrilled when I got my beaut reset for Christmas double halo all the way.  Size eight hands btw.  So might be a bit to much for you with your dingy pinkies, hehehe
