Im pretty new and know this might be a long shot but does anyone have a 2 carat round e-ring that they can post a couple pics of. All the pictures I see are very close up (stunning I know) but I need to see one at about an arms length away before I can be sure. Any help would be appreciated.

Well mine is oval but you get the same idea. Are you doing a little research for your own ring?

mine is a 2.01 round and then i had it set in a cushion halo, so not sure if any of these will help

my diamond looks super washed out in this pic, but it does give you an idea of the size of a 2ctstep marquise

My SO ordered my ring in a 2 carat and I only wanted a 1 or 1.5 so now im just so nervous it will be so huge it will look oddly fake :S
Im only 23 and dont want people to think its fake (my SO is older and established)
Will a 1.5 carat that I tried on look much different than a 2 carat?

I notice the difference between a 1ct and 1.5ct almost instantly. But the difference between a 1.5ct and a 2ct is almost negligable to my vision.
If I remember right the difference between a 1.5 ct round and a 2ct round is like half a milimeter (if you go by moissaniteco sizing)

@vulnerable64: I’m assuming your FI got a moissanite, b/c the sizes you mentioned are so standard, and because he ordered it. If anyone thinks it’s fake, just tell them it’s moissanite and you got a way better deal on it than if it were a diamond!

@vulnerable64: It kind of depends on your finger size. And also the stone. You didn’t mention whether it was a diamond, but if it’s a 2ct gemstone as opposed to colorless stone, it will look a lot more believable because generally gemstones are cheaper. Also, if you have size 10 fingers, it’s going to look a lot more natural on you than if you have size 3.
If you’re small-fingered and quite young, unless you’re carrying a luxury handbag and wearing Louboutins around…then yeah, they’re probably going to think it’s fake if they don’t know you.
But who cares? Haters gonna hate, and as you get older it will look more and more natural, and besides–it’s smart to buy the ring you want now while you have the money, instead of getting something modest now for modesty’s sake and then trying to find the cash to upgrade when you have a few babies and a mortgage on a large home.
ETA: Just noticed you’re from Vancouver, which makes it a moot point. From what I understand, large rings are somewhat the norm there, kind of like New York City and Los Angeles. Your ring will probably be about the norm, though most brides will likely be older by virtue of the fact that people in big cities tend to marry later.

@Treejewel19: It’s your stunning ring really 2 carats!? I have been wondering this forever.

@vulnerable64: I have seen a 1.5 and a 2 in person and I think there is a significant difference. I’m sure it’s gonna look beautiful.
