Welcome to the hive!!




So you’re looking only at cushion cuts? The first thing you need to check are the actual dimensions of the stone. A deep 1.5ct stone can face up smaller than a shallow 1ct so if its face up size you’re comparing, get the dimensions rather than the carat weight. My cushion stone is a 1.23 with 67% depth and for my 6.5 finger it was good coverage for me (still waiting for the actual ring). Its 5.8mmx5.8mm.




Also, are you concerned about clarity, colour and cut? If the stones are graded then you should be able to compare these readily and consider then depending on your priorities. 



What I did though when we were choosing because we bought online was made little paper cut outs of the dimensions of different stones to compare on my finger 🙂

 go try some different sizes at a store!  It’ll help when you see them on your finger.
