lovelifelove :  I like the second one best. I like the extra bling. Also, a 1.5ct will likely attract a lot of attention in the UK (depending where you live). 

Of the solitaires the first is my favourite.

I’m a UK bee with a moissy too! I think there’s more of us than you’d think 😉

I’d say whichever setting you go for, go with the 1ct unless you’re able to go to a store to try on different size moissy/diamonds. I went to a few stores to look at some 1ct diamonds, but I dont think I appreciated how much bigger they would look once in a setting, and mine is quite a tall setting so it makes it look even bigger (this is something you should think about too – how tall your settings are). It’s not very common to see 1ct rings in the UK, let alone 1.5ct, so people might question how you can afford a ring like that if they assume it’s a diamond. I’ve got a 1ct moissy and sometimes I worry it’s too big, especially when everyone around me has 0.25-0.50ct rings, but then I remember I love it and idgaf what anyone else thinks…We could’ve afforded a 1ct diamond but decided to put the extra money away for the wedding and i’m so happy we made that choice.

ps – congratulations! x
