I am doing a 1.5 and I am also a size 8.5 but it also depends on the style of ring. Halo can go a little smaller center because of the extra diamonds, solitaire you might wanna go a bit bigger as it stands alone. I think a 1.7 or simular size is great

You should go try on rings and see what looks best on your finger. It’s also super easy to say I want x carat size, but your best option is to discuss a budget and start from there. A 1.7 carat ring can run around 20,000 give or take depending on the setting and specs etc. is that reasonable for your SO?

also depending on what type of band you choose, it can enhance your diamond and showcase it more.  I have a simple 1.01 carat cushion cut solitaire on a size 9.5 finger and I love it, I wear stackable bands.

I’m also a size 8.5. I’ve decided on a 2ct center diamond with halo sapphires. Well, I want it like that anyway, turns out it’s not an easy task at all to get those sapphires. Boyfriend just found that out today at the jeweller. 

Also jeweller recommended 1.7 to my boyfriend. So we’ll see.
