@ethanashley:  Have you tried on a 1.75? I have a 1.51 carat round diamond and I adore it but I wouldn’t have said no to a 2 carat either ;). If you plan on adding a diamond later you may want to consider the cost of the additional half carat as the diamond price will go up significantly.

Good luck with the decision and the little one 😉

I think I would go 1.5 just because if you upgrade later to a real diamond (as you say)  I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed if it didn’t have the same finger coverage as the one you are getting now.  Plus, you might want to save a little now and splurge a little later on something for that new baby!  It isn’t very glamorous but I am the more conservative one, financially, in my family. 🙂

@ethanashley:  I normally would say ‘bigger is better’ but in this case I have to agree with bnamrs4evr.  I wouldn’t like my finger coverage to go down, even if it was to get a real diamond.

Like prior posters, I would recommend that you choose a carat size now that you believe you would be able to afford and willing to purchase if and when you opt to replace the replica stone.
