    A knife edge makes the band look thinner when viewed from the top. A thin band is said to make a diamond appear larger. So yeah I guess it’s true, but 2 carats on a size 5.5 will look plenty big no matter what type of band.

    tanitorr:  i think your rock will look big no mattwe what with a size 5 finger and a 2ct rock!  With that being said i have a 1.01ct on a knife edged band and i think it looks pretty “sizeable” on my size 6 fingers!

    As you saw on me earlier I love my knife edge solitaire! It’s dainty yet sturdy and does make the rock look bigger, not like 2 carats needs help with that lol!

    Mine sits higher and I have found that it went with every band I tried on.  I went with a 7 stone u prong band with 1.25 carats and it looks awesome!  Never hurts it is very comfortable.

    tanitorr:  no it never hurts! Here’s a side angle that might answer your question. Mine is quite low sitting, and lots of light comes in from the sides- both key factors for me when picking this setting.

    I’d just get whichever you like more and worry less about what makes it look bigger.  At 2 ct, it doesnt really need the help, and if anything, the finger size matters more to make it look bigger/smaller than the slight slope in the band.

    I have a 2ct knife edge solitaire. I love that it is such a classic look and will never go out of style. I asked the jeweler who made my setting to set my diamond down low. So if you’re worried about catching it on things, there are options.

    ETA: mine is set even lower than the PP’s. Hers is set so the stone sits above the knife edge. Mine is set into it (if that makes any sense).

    I also have a knifes edge solitare. I love it and find it to be comfortable. It’s classic and timeless plus the simple setting allows the stone to take center stage.

    I don’t know of mine makes my stone look bigger though (I also don’t know my carat size to be able to determine that) and a lot of my friends have super thin pave settings so mine automatically feels wide compared to theirs.
