Here’s a link to the ring I want:
I can’t decide between a 1, 1.5, or 2 carat. I wear a size 9. I don’t want it to be so big that it looks fake, but I also don’t want it to look tiny. Which one do you think would look best on me?
Would anyone care to post pictures of what their ring looks like (especially round cut) and their ring size? (Does size make a difference in diamonds, CZ, or cut lab made diamonds?)

heatherdanyel: I feel like any of those sizes would work for you. I’m a size 7 and have a 1.7. I feel its a nice size for me. Its a little big, but definitely doesn’t look fake at all. Of course, I love sparkly things, so I say, if you can afford it, go HUGE lol.
I’ll post a pic, just for size comparison.

Wow that’s some seriously misleading advertising bordering on lies – a lab diamond for $99. Oh wait – a “stimulated” diamond lol. As long as you know that what you’re getting is a cz, (despite the seller’s claims to the contrary) it’s all good. One carat is a very good size.

I’m a size 8 and wear my rings at size 8.5, so I’m fairly close to your finger size. My ring isn’t a solitaire like the one you linked, but the center stone is .90 — so just under a carat.

My mother wears a size 10 and a 2 carat stone I feel is the perfection size for her. However, it’s your personal preference that really matters 🙂 If you can afford it, I usually say go big or go home 😉
Here’s a chart you can use as a guide to help you choose if you’re looking for a certain amount of finger coverage. I love this chart and it helped me to decide what carat weight might look best on my hand. The percentage tells how much of your finger will be covered by the carat (round diamond, in this case) and the color of the percentage will tell you that it might be too small (black), just right (orange), too big (blue). Obviously, it’s just a guide, not a rulebook! Hope this helps you 🙂
