I would love to see pictures of a 2 carat round with halo ering on a size 4 finger. The gal at the jewlery store said I was actually a size 3.5 but that she would go with a 4??? Not sure why that is.

Please post pics!


Thank you all!

That''s gonna be a really top heavy ring to make a half size too big. Wonder what her reasoning is?

Sorry I don''t have any pics, but that''s gonna be one heck of a finger-covering ring!

I wouldn''t go with a half size up. I have huge fingers (sz 7.5) and that''s what I ordered. I have a round in a halo but I won''t post pics since I''m double your finger size
lol.

I wouldn''t either. You should get the size your finger is measured at.

ams'' e-ring is one of my favourite halos. It''s a 1.51 and her ring size is 4 1/2 (hope you don''t mind me posting this ams!)

A 2ct halo on a 3.5 is going to be major finger coverage!!!

My finger size is a 3.5, but my ring is a 4.5 b/c of my knuckle.
The center is 2.44.
IMO 2 carat would be better. I think mine is a little too big.

I wear a 3 1/2 too and had a ring made in a 3.75 and it would spin and drove me nuts. I would not recommend going to a 4.

Just remember that if you plan to wear a wedding band, the two together will make the 2 rings fit better. So I probably would go up 1/4 size. My rings are actually a 1/4 size larger than I really need, and I like it that way because I hate snug rings especially in hot weather.

Yah me too. I think 1/4 size is enough--I have mine sized up 1/4 and it''s perfect for those hot days, post exercise, or when I''ve eaten too many chips!

I wear 2, but got the measured size. While they may be a hair snug (not anymore than that) in the summer, they are sometimes loose enough to "clink" in the winter. I personally wouldn''t want them any looser. And I have thicker bands too...

This makes sense especially if you live where it gets pretty cold--no wonder I don''t have that cold loose clink! I''m in LA!

It is from the
Michael B. Trois Collection.
IMO it is just on the cusp of being too big b/c I have small hands. I really love it, but I think a 2ct.halo would have been perfect, but that's just me.
I really like halos though, and I think this one is just perfect. I love the double decker halo - the profile is one of my favorite parts.

I am meeting with the jewler today... I am so nervous! I feel like such a control freak picking out my own ering but I know the BF would recruit his recently married/engaged buddies to help and I''m not really a fan of what they gave their fiances. After lurking on here quite a bit I feel a little bit better, seems like a lot of gals pick their rings out!

I really love double decker halo! I''m trying to accumulate some photos to take with me to show her what I like/dislike. Thanks for the pic''s!

Yes, it gets veddy cold here. If I was a guy, I could be Colonel Klink.
