bling204:  hello i know this feed is old but do you know the measurement of your 2 carat stone? my partner and i recently purchased a 2 carat cushion cut.. it measures out to be 7.54mmx7.54mm, but to me it looks so small.. maybe because it isnt set yet? thank you!

Candiceholly88:  cushions do generally face up smaller. Mines an old cut cushion so different facets and generally they are a lot deeper with a higher crown giving more of a ‘pillowy’ shape top rather than spread, but it’s 7.9mm x 7.4mm if I remember correctly and it’s a 2.4ct centre so you can see the different the old cut makes.  I’m a 4.75 size finger. Does this help show you a comparative mm size to yours?

 

the quality of your clarity, colour and cut counts for a lot, so if it’s got good light return it could be a real sparkler.

UK-bee:  thanks so much for posting that! see yours is a beautiful size! your finger is only slightly bigger than mine and your stone also, so i imagine it would look similar once set? i guess a stone on its own with noting else around it WILL look a lot small as opposed to when it is set up, and into a ring. your setting is gorgeous too!

im on the fence whether to have a halo setting or just solitare with a really thin micro pave band.. decisions decisions!

Thank you so much again! 🙂

Candiceholly88:  have you tried on styles? I thought I wanted a halo but turns out I preferred a solitaire. Halo will give you more finger coverage. So will an illusion setting. But personally if you have a good diamond I say let it shine as a classic solitaire.
