@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  The 2 carat seems like an awesome deal! I’d look into it.  I wouldn’t go 1.3 to 1.5 – you’ll see a minor difference maybe on the side by side comparison, but not a huge difference – and if you suffer from shrinkage – the 1.5 will soon shrink!

The 2 carat seems ideal! If you want a big stone that is what I would go for. 🙂 (The other stones are not small by any means.) But if you want a bigger one, go BIG if you can!

A 2 carat diamond for $7400?  I’d be very very cautious of that.  Something is wrong with it, no way does a 2 ct. sone go for under 15-20k. Are you color sensitive?  J might show some warmth. What about the cut?  I’d rather have a smaller stone that is ideal cut than a very good/good cut bigger stone!

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  I’d be cautious of that price only b/c I have a 2.04 carat and I know what it cost but mine is G color…..I’d be a little worried about the color as well. If you are ok with it possibly looking a little yellow and showing warmth as PP mentioned.

The stone you have now is gorgeous and it’s G color…..I know I personally wouldn’t be happy with that drastic of a change in color.

Didn’t you just upgrade your current stone for color also?  I saw a 2ct J, and maybe not all J’s are created equal, but that J looks very yellow to me.  If you’re color sensitive at all and want a colorless stone, I wouldnt get a J, especially at that size.  Save up a few k more for a 2ct with better color.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  Can you get the GIA report so we can take a look at the measurements?  The numbers will tell you a lot about how it performs.  

ETA:  just saw it wasn’t certified.  Good move on passing!!!

i think a J is going to look very yellow compared to your 1.3 ct G stone… And it’s going to be more noticable because a 2 ct is relatively big… But if the size matters more to you than the color, than I say go for it!
I have a 1.5ct H stone, and it looks nearly colorless, but on certain days, I see a faint tint of yellow… I could imagine its much more obvious with a J colored stone

That seems too good to be true for a 2ct stone. 

BTW I have a J center stone and I don’t see one trace of yellow.

Good call on passing but not necessarily because of the color, but the cut has to be fair for that price.
