nyplay4life: Oooh that’s lovely! I think if anything, the thin micropave band will make the diamond look bigger. When my SO and I went ring shopping, even the 1ct stones we were looking at looked pretty large on my finger with a micropave band, so I don’t think you could go wrong with that setting.

And for what it’s worth, I don’t think 1.5ct is small by any means!

nyplay4life:  I don’t think that’s small at all and sure she will love it. My original e-ring was a 0.33 and my hand size is a 8.75! I would say not making the band too thick, helps with making it appear larger. What colour of metal were you considering? Rose gold could make it pop.

Here’s a thread with size 7 photos so you can see the variations. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/size-7-fingershow-many-carats-did-you-get/

 

With a 1.5 ct she’ll have about 40% finger coverage. Not bad!!

you may want to check out ‘illusion’ settings as that gives a little bit of a bigger look. 

if she’s not fixed on solitaire only, you could look at side stones to give more coverage.

nyplay4life:Β  beautiful ring!! Also, your diamond will look larger once it’s elevated in the setting instead of being right on top of your finger πŸ™‚ congrats!!

nyplay4life:  That’s a nice choice ☺️. Means she won’t need to get redipped. 

Personally I would say if she doesn’t like halos then don’t get a halo. Not everyone loves the look and sometimes it less for the setting than just  leaving it. Or maybe consider it later on, can always add it on. 

Wish I had one to show you, but sadly my 1.5 is a H&A Round Sorry.

Hi everyone! sorry to bombard your feed, i am new here and have a question – if anyone could please help!

my partner and i have just purchased a 2 carat cushion cut.. recieved it last week- it measures to be 7.54mmx7.54mm with a depth of 5.10mm .. it looked tiny when i rested it next to my ring finger.. my size is 4.5… not big at all so i was a bit shocked to see how small it looked on my hand πŸ™ is this because it hasnt been set yet?? has anyone else had this issue? any comments/opinions would be much appreciated! πŸ™‚

xx
