Default What size rhinestone buckle?

Hello ladies, I haven't posted in awhile but been lurking, but I need some help. My niece is graduating on the 21st, and has requested a pair of bow flip flops, and to dress them up I want to put rhinestone buckles/slides on them. I tried searching, I'm sure it's been asked before, but for some reason my iPod won't let me search.
I need to know what size buckle/slide I should use for 1 1/2" ribbon. Do I get one smaller to make it pinched in the middle or do I need to go bigger? I prefer the pinched looking bow to a flat one but I'm not the customer.
TIA, sorry I have to ask instead of searching!

Thank you. I don't suppose anyone knows where I can find them in a store? Is Michaels or Hobby Lobby more likely to have them? I also am near a
Jo-anns, so could go there too.

I don't want to risk ordering them online and not getting them on time, of course this was all decided pretty last minute.

I would use 7/8 also. You will probably have better luck at HL, IMO. We have a Ribbon Slider Buy going on right now, but it sounds like you need them right away.
