Many of you probably know that I am looking to upgrade my 1ct round moissanite solitaire to a 2ct, but I was wondering if anyone had a 1.5ct? or any pictures of a 1.5ct and a 2ct side by side? Of either diamond or moissanite, doesnt really matter. I just want to know the size comparison, because if there’s not much of a difference when looking at it then I might just go with the 1.5ct. If you could help me out that would be great! 🙂

Here’s my 1.5ct lovely. (Sorry the pic is huge.) How big are your fingers? I wear a 5 and a half, but my fingers are also kind of short. I felt like anything more than 1.5 might be a little too blingy for me. But it sounds like you like bling, so maybe 2ct is the way to go. Good luck!

@McVerde: that’s gorgeous! I wear a 4.25 so my fingers are really thin, but kinda long. Here’s a pic of my 1ct.

@agirlwithdreams7: Someone had a link the other day to show the different sizes of a round solitaire on an actual (well, virtual) hand. I have the link at home and can get it when I go home later tonight (at work now). Trying to remember the post so I can find it for you…

Go for the 2! Mr. Tattoo says that I can upgrade to a 2 on our 5 year anniversary. It’s like an incentive. lol
I have a 1.25 Ring Bearer moissanite in a halo right now and the halo makes it look so much bigger than it already is.

I have a 1.71 princess cut solitare. Personally, I can tell the difference between a 1 carat, 1.5 carat, and 2 carat. My husband told me that sometimes the quality of the diamond goes down with the bigger carat at the same price, so people end up spending a lot more on the bigger diamond to not lose quality of cut and other features. For me, I wouldn’t dream of switching out my diamond for an upgrade. I know someone whose not married yet that wants to upgrade from an 1.8 carat, round brilliant to something even bigger. We’re thinking of maybe doing a diamond anniversary band or someting like that since I have a plain white gold wedding band. Here’s my 1.71 carat stone.

personally It’s not a huge difference. one thing I’ve heard is that if you went slightly below the 2 carat, such as 1.75, There would be a significant price decrease

These are based on an average size 7 finger. I wear an 8 and they look very very close. I have a 1 ct diamond and I wanted to upgrade to 2 cts but I thought 2 looked a bit large for me personally so I think I’ll go for 1.5 =) hope this helped ya a little.

My finger is a size 4.5 (ring is a 4.75 because my fingers swell) and I have a 1.5c cushion cut. The face up on the cushion cuts are smaller than round, so a 1.5 round will look bigger:

@HappilyEverAfter54: AH! This was the website!
I personally can tell a difference. Both are huge in my opinion, though. 🙂

@FrozenFeet: I thought that may have been what you were talking about 😉
I can definitely see a difference but with half sizes I’m always willing to save a little cash and go smaller… I still say 1.5, maybe bling up the band.

Once on a hand the difference is pretty nominal and the size is mostly something only the wearer and people looking for it would notice. But then maybe I just don’t pay that much attention? I’d go with what makes you happy! no one else when u go out will probably care or be as critical as much as you do about your own ring.
