    To give you size reference…. this is a 1.62ct (8.06 x 5.98) on a size 7 finger.  Mine is thinner and white gold though. It’s a “J” lab diamond and we spent under your budget.  I, personally, think it’s a perfect size…but that’s for me.

    I think it’s perfect! I have a 1.65 carat emerald cut and people are always complementing it and saying it looks big.

    I don’t think it’s a good idea to finance a ring.  Stick with what you can afford.

    Diamdb is quite a fun website where you can customize finger size, length and skin color, ring band color and width, stone shape and exact dimensions. That way you can see exactly what “coverage” she will get. 

    I agree with PP’s, it sounds like a lovely stone and you should never finance a piece of jewelry, especially if you have already selected such a beautiful ring!

    rstiv :  never, ever, EVER finance a luxury purchase. The ring you selected is lovely!

    I second what LilliV  said!!! No dimaond is worth going into debt for.  Get her what you can afford. You don’t want to be paying for the ring when you’re trying to save for your wedding/honeymoon.

    I think that is the perfect size for a size 7 finger! I have a 1.52 carat (7.3 mm) round solitaire (which would be comparable size to your 8 x 6 emerald) on a 2 mm band and I also wear a size 7 ring. I find it to be the perfect size for my hand, the perfect sweet spot between “too big” and “too small”.

    I honestly think she is going to be thrilled with what you have chosen for her. Lucky girl!

    Best wishes on your engagement!

    Mine is a 1.75 on a size 7 finger, don’t know the l/w. The ring you chose is beautiful and a great carat size for her finger. Hope this pic helps and congrats on the engagement!
