    I have a pear diamond on hold at the moment that is 1.5ct and measures approx 9.9 to 6.48 at a ratio of approx 1.53.

    My initial plan was to have this ring set without a halo, however am now considering adding a seamless one to the ring.

    My concern at this stage is very much the effect that the halo will have on the L/W ratio. The jewler is telling me 1 pointers around the diamond is recommended, however will that make the diamond look stumpy? Should I be ordering a longer out of proportion pear shaped diamond which the halo will then bring into proportion?

    The effect of a halo makes the overall LxW ratio of center stone + halo lower than the original stone set by itself. However the halo doesn't make the stone look stumpier.
