Drstgo24:  In my experience, you will most likely not notice a difference between the two sizes because it’ll be quite subtle. It also depends on the setting you choose. If you choose to add a halo down the road then I feel that the 1.20 would benefit you more.

Also, quality and color is always better than size. A bee on here used to have a 2 carat diamond that was poor in color and in quality, but she wanted to be able to say she had a big diamond. As an anniversary gift, they upgraded her engagement ring and she ditched the 2 carat for a .75 carat princess cut with much higher quality and color and everyone — including her — likes it so much better.

So, rambling aside, I say go for the 1.20 carat with the better color 🙂

I would go with the G colored stone. The difference between a 1.5 and 1.2 isn’t that noticeable but the difference between a G and I color is typically noticeable.

Drstgo24: If the two stones are equivalent in cut and are both eye clean, I’d go for the larger size. I like warmer stones and I don’t think I is that warm. Color sensitivity varies from person to person though.
