@LilMsMicro:  Going from a 1.00 to a 1.75 will absolutely be noticeable.  But…if you’re even considering going with a 2.00 carat, you should go for it.  The price of diamonds is going up, up, up!  (The retail value of mine went up $1000.00 since last year.) You should have no regrets when it comes to your ring so I say “Go for it girl!”

yes you should definitely see a difference, especially with a round diamond

@LilMsMicro:  I think the rule is that you can see anything over .25 ct difference but it will depend on the spread because some diamonds are cut shallower than others. I would say to price the change of your setting and then decide from there!

You need to go up about .25ct to notice a size difference. So your 1.75 will be noticably smaller than a 2ct. But it will still be very noticably larger than your 1ct.

The difference between 1 and 1.75 is huge and you’ll definitely notice the difference. The difference between a 1.75 and a 2 is pretty sizeable as well but on your tiny hand it may not be necessary because the price jump is pretty aggressive. I’d go for the 2 because that’ll probably satisfy you enough to never had to do it again. For reference, here is my 1.82 on a size 5.5 finger:

 

EDIT: My friend has a 4.75 ring size and when she tries on my ring, the stone looks huuuge. My Fiance even noticed the difference and he’s not all that involved in ring stuff – AT ALL

Here are some pics. I’m a 4.75 size, 1.85 stone on platinum setting. A little blurry but hope this helps!

It will be a big diff!!! here is a .55 to a 1.02ct it shows how much a half a carat diff looks. Dont mind my finger I tried on alot of rings that day and it was sooooo sore and swollen
