@tarapaul2016:  Yes it is.  I think the tcw is about 2.3.

Not .5ct but it’s 1ct center w/ .75 total on band. Size 6 (well… 6.5 with bumps) I don’t think it looks like a full ct..but that’s just me!

Try going for a cushion cut, or something where the band goes around the center stone. You can make the center stone stand out more this way. My advice is to get a smaller, higher quality center stone and get lower quality stones for your band…you can’t see imperfections that small.

And thank you!! I think the swirl around helps, like I said. Something like that will make the whole ring look bigger.

@tarapaul2016:  Thanks!  Not gonna lie, somedays I wish it was bigger but the halo really helps with finger coverage.  ….one day maybe it will be bigger…..
