Lately, my engagement ring has been so stressful! I am really really busy with work.. It’s impossible to take time off to try on engagement rings! I’m getting engaged soon… and I need to decide on the carat size that I want.
I’m curious to see Round engagement rings, 1.5 & 2 carat diamonds, size 7.
Preferably the cost as well.
Pictures of the ring itself don’t do justice… So I’d really appreciate seeing it on the hand!
Thank you in advance! 🙂

This is a 1.58ct OEC, but OECs are slightly deeper due to the higher crown height, thus face up smaller than MRBs.. So that extra 0.08ct probably isn’t much more larger.
Q: will you be lowering the other Cs stats just to go larger?
Edit/ finger size 7.5

@madelise: Wow! beautiful ringgggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The answer to your question is no :-/ I was only asked to pick the shape and size. I don’t even know much about diamonds or the settings! I barely wear jewelry, but this will be the one piece I’ll wear always… So I want to be sure about everything before he chooses one on his own! But really.. your ring is gorgeous!!!

Thank you, love!
Is the stone going to be diamond or a simulant? There’s nothing wrong with getting a beautiful sim; there are a bunch here on WB! But if you’re buying a diamond, and your BF has a set budget, I’d insist on getting higher quality over carat size. I’m nervous if you insist on a 2 ct, he’d lower the other stats quality to meet the size. Can you join him to go take looksie at some diamonds? Check out what color ranges would be acceptable to you, and what level of inclusions would be ok for you. Also, CUT is king! It’s what makes the diamond sparkle and perform better.. So I’d place that high on your list!
good luck, and HAVE FUN! Jewelry shopping is one of the funnest shopping trips you’ll ever do, and it doesn’t come often!
