    the 1.5 or the 1 both look great on your hands.

    Given similar specs, I would definitely choose the 2!

    The 1ct. looks good, and I think the 1.5 is fantastic. But I think if you go over 1.5 it might be too much. I vote for 1.25 ct. lol!!! Laughing

    I think a 2ct would look to big, I think a 1.3 would look the best

    I think the 1.5 looks great. It’s hard for me to estimate what a 2 would look like on your hand without actually seeing it, but the 1 is a little small since you can go bigger (though, really, it’s lovely too, but since larger sizes are on the table and you have a size 9 finger, I think larger would be great). I always think solitaire rings look best when the stone takes up 1/3-1/2 the width of the finger when viewed from above the hand.

    I voted 1 carat.  But I like small unobtrusive rings! So take that for what it’s worth.  The bigger it is the more it’s a hassle in pockets, purses, sweaters, coats, gloves, etc.  BUT that also depends on how high the stone sits and what YOUR preference is (and what weather gear you need)!  You should go with what you want and you guys can afford.  You could have at 2ct ring that would drive me batty but be perfect for you!

    1.5 or 2 are both good. If you don’t have budget concern, take 2. My friend is size 5 and wearing 2ct. It looks so good with her wedding band.

    What i am say so is because after a while, you’ll start to think the stone is too small. 

    After 6 months wearing my less than 1ct e-ring. It just look not big at all, just fit, and can be better if it’s bigger on my finger.

    My 2 cents.
