My partner and I have almost completed our search for the perfect diamond. We’ve narrowed it down to two options that we’re super happy with – there really isn’t a bad choice!
The only real difference in the two diamonds is the size and the price (they are exactly the same specs). We’re purchasing online so I can’t see the diamonds side-by-side in real life to see if there is a noticeable size difference. So I’m here to ask your advice!
Do you think there will be a visual size difference between these two round brilliants?
1.02 (triple X)
Diameter: 6.54 x 6.56 x 3.95
1.15 (triple X)
Diameter: 6.7 x 6.72 x 4.16
Thanks in advance!

About a 5% difference in visual size, so not much.
Up to you if the difference in price is worth it!

I don’t think there will be much visual will difference. May be the price is different because one of them has better specs on the 4 C’s.

Honestly I would say you probably won’t really see a difference until it’s a 30% difference. Carat weight is distributed across the width and depth, so a lot of times, you won’t see the difference. Will be important also if you’re planning on upgrading or anyone planning on upgrading that if you want to see a difference (and other people to see a difference), you’ll probably need at the very least a 25% increase in size for it to appear much bigger.
