Hello, me again!

Considering either sticking with my 1.5ct or changing to the 1.7 for my GF... Considering a custom halo by Steven Kirsch. Petite halo. GF is a size 4/4.25... Will halo overwhelm her? Here is a 4.25 with the ring (my sister - she's a champ checking it out in lighting since it has strong Fluoro)

Thanks everyone!

A halo would be gorgeous if that's the look you're going for. SK will probably determine the best size for the melee in the halo but I'd do half of one pointers max! (I.e. 1mm or 1.3mm round diamonds). This will add either 2mm or 2.6mm to your centre diamond plus a little extra for metal etc..... What are your centre stone specs?

My finger is a 4.5 and I wear a 1.55ct princess in a halo but it's got a slight airline (wasn't made for it.....) but whole thing is 11x11 and it looks great IMO.

It will certainly add a big impact to the diamond. X

A well executed and proportioned halo would look wonderful on a size 4 finger.

I think twosanguinehearts has a 4.5 finger. The halo is done by Victor Canera.

I am sure Steven kirsch will make a beautiful, delicate halo with clean lines as well.

One of my all time favorite rings on PS, LLJsmom - and I think a great example of perfect proportions.

Qui499kyl, moving from a 1.5 to a 1.7 will only increase your finger coverage by less than .3 of a millimeter. Your stone would still look great in a halo on a size 4 finger.

Will it overwhelm a 4.25? I don't think so. Is a halo what SHE wants though?

I saw better pics (I guess the 1.5 ctw) on your sister's hand in your Rocky Talk thread. I think it looks huge and lovely on your sister. Are you sure she wouldn't want it kept as a solitaire? Remember she'll probably wear a wedding band too - might you be getting diamonds for that??
