I am deciding between two stones to go in a Kirsch halo (modeled after Frankie's :) ).

They are both ideal cut stones; the two major differences I see are larger arrows on the 1.54 and obviously size. The price difference is ~3k between the two. I was trying to make the ring as similar to the pictures I had seen here (1.6C center stone I believe), and I am wondering if by choosing the 1.3 the overall look will be quite a bit smaller. If the overall look will be very close when all is said and done I would prefer to go with the 1.3. The cost is not a huge factor, really trying to get the best value and the 1.5+ stones seem to have a premium on them.

Thanks
