I don’t think there will be a very big difference between the 1.5 and the 2 ct.  I love your ring and I think that it looks stunning on your finger 🙂

@mvmvang:  You should keep it as is 🙂 That’s a beautiful ring!  I think the proportions are perfect for a halo.  I would normally suggest to go for the bigger one, but this size is perfect for your setting.

We have about the same finger coverage, and I CONTANTLY get people gushing about my “big ring”! If you want a 2, go for it! But what you have is STUNNING!

@mvmvang:  I don’t think there is much size difference between the two, but if you want to upgrade so you can tell people you have a 2 ct, then go for it.

@GelaMac:  yep….to my opinion the ring is already a bit big on your finger.

Don’t go bigger! The ring is the perfect size for your hand I feel like if you were to upsize it would be overwhelming and a little like costume jewelery. It looks absolutely stunning as is!

1.50ct looks great on your hand. if u did end up getting a 2ct..it might overwhelm your side stones. either one would look gorgeous.

I like the look of the ring with the current sized stone. If you go bigger, it will alter the look. Maybe that’s what you want, but it’s so absolutely decadent now, I would think twice before changing the diamond.

Amoungst my friends, my ring is big, and I’m pretty sure it’s less than a carat. 

I say enjoy what you have. Bigger is not always better.

I think you should stick with the 1.55. It’s an amazing size and from what I found with anything bigger than a 1.5, I feel like it starts to become a bother when you’re wearing it because it snags, or it constantly needs to be twirled around if you’re putting your hand in a jacket pocket or something.
