@MarquiseBee:  I will tell you that a 2+ ct will look gigantic, especially if you have a smaller hand. Marquise cuts tend to look bigger than their actual weight due to the large amount of surface area. I fell in love with the Marquise because it’s so unique and I’m a francophile so it just seemed to fit. 

My ring size is about 5.75 – 6, the center is .38-.4ct, I feel like this is the perfect size for my hand and please ignore my gross nails – they’re polish stained and really need to be cut. :/

I agree that bigger carat marquis look unappealing to me. I do like marquis, but in the half carat or so range with side details. That’s not your preference, though, and there is nothing wrong with that.

I would like to see some marquis rings as well. I have committed to a round solitaire, but I originally wanted something like chouette posted.

I agree with the others that 2 ct will probably look over the top/almost cocktail ring-ish unless that’s what you like!

Mine is almost .7 cts with .7 cts of smaller diamonds around the whole band

My finger is a size 5.5

(best picture I have is with my wedding band too)

@leahlou:  I just had to say that your ring is BEAUTIFUL, I love vintagey looking rings. I also have a band that curves around my ring but not like yours, very unique.

2 carats will not look like costume jewelry! It will be absolutely gorgeous! Sorry can’t contribute but I’ll bump this for you 🙂

Not the greatest photo, but it’s a 1.27 ct on a size 7.5 finger. The band width is 4mm.
