J SI1 XXX 0.8 carats. Massive guessing going on from me though as I’m crap at even telling diamonds from moissanites on here. 

Ideal cut diamonds often face up smaller than other diamonds at the same carat size because they are cut for performance and not size. Lots of purchasers value face up size above everything so the market provides, even though scintillation and even light return are compromised.

Oh cool – I was going to guess 0.9/ and I or J color. My stone is an I and I love it! It’s a really beautiful, classic ring – and doesn’t look smaller than its weight at all to me! You may be comparing your stone’s proportions to the images of 1 carat stones you see on pinterest and instagram – but most of those models have size 4-6 fingers. I think it looks beautiful on you!

britnee814 :  I was off by 0.01ct, lol.  I guessed fluorescence because your second picture had a great white glowy look to it, and you definitely have the sparkle factor. I am cursed with the 7/7.25 finger size too and I feel like it just eats ct weight, visually.  Yours has great finger presence. I think you picked a great stone with great stats to value ratio. Someone did diamond education homework!

We are diamond twins (kind of atleast πŸ˜‰)! I think the size looks pretty spot on. My diamond is a .91 XXX, I color, VS1 and my size is a 5.75, so I think it looks about right on your finger! It’s a beauty!

I think your fiancé made the right call prioritising cut over face-up size, it’s so sparkly and who wants a big dull diamond?

My ring is a GIA J  and I have no regrets on the colour either. It a beautiful ring!
