So, before I got engaged I always thought “oh I wouldn’t mind giving up a little sparkle or color for more finger coverage”. But now that my fiancé got me an ideal cut, g, vs2 1.23ct oval diamond verses a not so quality 2+ carat, I feel otherwise. I am constantly having random people notice how “sparkely and gorgeous” my ring is. Also, my friend compared my ring to hers and said “wow, your ring is so much more sparklier than mine, even we have the same size stone”.

(Dunno why half my message was deleted)
but my fiancé said the custom jeweler he used said way too often stones are cut to appear bigger than thier carat weight but just DO NOT have the same brilliance.
And now I get it. Ladies/gentlemen looking at diamonds, go with quality and I promise you will not be dissappointed. Bigger is not always better like I originally thought.

Pics!!! I agree whole heartedly! I have a G color too, an H that was a 1.3ct (mine is 1.11) was actually like $700 cheaper, but we went with the G and so happy we did!

Quality over quantity, every time. I’d rather have a fantastic small stone as opposed to a gigantic not so good stone.

Tay2210: It is great that you found something that you love! Another great thing is that there are 4 C’s and everyone gets to choose which one matters most to them. Everyone has different preferences and it is really awesome that we each get our own e-rings to reflect just that.

Yes if you could compare a good stone to a not so good stone, but larger, no matter what, the better quality stone will ALWAYS win!!
