Hope you return th diamond and find something you can see in person. If you have to buy online, pay attention to the measurements. You can compare them to the one you are returning to see how much surface area they have and help you get the size you actually want. 

To get the coverage of the one pictured on the size 5 hand, you probably need to be looking for at least 1.5-1.6 carats, and look for relatively shallow cuts. Keep in mind there is an ideal shallowness that will maximize sparkle and getting a diamond that’s much deeper or shallower will diminish sparkle. In the end, with diamonds, it’s all about figuring out your priorities. Each attribute is costly so you need to decide where you’d like your money to go and where you are ok   sacrificing.

I personally think the first ring you get should be your last unless something happens to the first. It appears to me that women seem to forget what marriage is meant to be, it’s not about how big the diamond is on your finger, the fact women honestly whine and cry that their ring is under a carat is pathetic to me, be happy the man actually wanted to marry you and spend his life to you. That should be more important then the size of the ring on your finger. 

 

*I totally get that since you wear it the rest of your life you want to “like” it, however a ring is just a symbol of your marriage and shouldn’t cause a person to get this upset over it.*

jeansaprincess:  I don’t think there’s anything shallow about caring how your diamond looks.  It’s an accessory.  It serves no purpose if you don’t care about how it looks. 

It’s different if its gift from the Fiance or Darling Husband and you’re upset because its too big/small/not glittery enough, etc.. since in that scenario “its the thought that counts”..

But you’re buying yourself a diamond, so you should get the diamond that makes you the happiest for the money you’re willing to spend, plain and simple. 🙂

 

Good luck

jeansaprincess:  after 20 years, it’s not shallow to enjoy picking out your upgrade esp when you both agreed! Good luck finding the right one, I’m with PP who suggested online as I know you’ll get a. Better deal that way, but maybe you just don’t want to stress and I get that.

dosen’t look small it loosk right on. my finger is 5.5 and my cart is 1.5. It looks similar. It really depends on your ring size. If you have bigger fingers obv it will look smaller. It looks great! if you want a biggr ring, you can add the halo setting around it ! it can easily make your ring look 2 or even 3 cart depending on how many halos you want to add.

I personally think “specs”can be misleading.Its all about how the stone speaks to YOU. To me, diamond specs are lke sale ads for horsses. Unless it is a halter horse (shwn nly for its coformation) you have to ride it to see if you click. Same with diamonds…..

Also, with diamonds (as with horses) most of us have to sacrifice something.  This is a 1.8 on a size 6 finger, so yours looks about right. This is not my “regular” ering. But, I do wear her from time to time. She is not a great stone…a lower color and has a cloud inclusion.
