Honey, I have a 2.67 center stone carat with about 1 carat total weight surrounding it (custom design) and my sister has a 3.14 center stone (no idea on the ones in the setting) and my mom has a 2.4 center stone from her engagement and then for their 25th anniversary my dad got her a setting with a 5 carat center diamond. Let me tell you coming from a family of women that appreciate the big bling – GET THE BIGGER STONE if you have the option.

You have to wear it everyday – not him. I get compliments on mine all the time and when I am with my mom and sister people love to compare them and I have never once gotten a negative response on the size of my diamond. (The setting is a bit controversial but everyone seems to be in awe of the diamond.) And I wear a size 7 ring and it just looks good proportionally.

I would go with the sparklier one. Maybe he will "upgrade" it later after he is done with law school as an appreciation for chosing the smaller one.

ok so I know nothing about diamonds, cuts and sizes; actually I told my now Fiance at that time boyfriend ahead of time that I wasn’t a diamond kind of girl (I’m not into gold either) and told him that I looooved wood, and that is what we got metal and wood rings 🙂 That’s what makes us HAPPY!

So my advice to you is just talk to him about what you like and why you like it (maybe his parents will understand with no problem) the thing here is that both of you should be happy about it, after all is a symbol of your love 🙂

When my Fiance and I went “ring shopping” the first couple times we were definitely going towards the 2ct stone. However, when he went by himself to buy the ring he decided to get a stone that was a little smaller (1.76ct) but with a much better quality.

So my question to you is…what’s most important to you, the size or the quality? and By The Way 7K for a 2ct is a great deal, but what is the quality of the diamond? When you buy a large diamond, it’s always best to go for a higher quality, since the flaws will show more due to its size.

Good luck!
