    The 2ct looks huge!  I have size 8.75-9 fingers, and my stone is just over 1/2 ct, though, and I think it looks just right, so…  No need to break the budget!

    I know jewelers that have said once the ring is set it will look about 20% larger .

     I love big diamonds so go as big as you can afford is my advice ๐Ÿ™‚

    @GiantJelly:  A 1.5 carat round on a size 6 finger would be 45% coverage.

    To get the same 45% coverage on a size 10 finger, the chart suggests a 2.5 carat diamond.

    If you go to a 3 carat you will end up at 47% coverage (or a 1.75 on a size 6 finger)

    I think the size you chose looks great!!  I prefer a little less finger coverage than some with daintier hands may have In the same proportion. 

    I’m a size 9.75 and my feature stone is 6.5/1.4 carat equivalent Cushion.

    @GiantJelly:  thanks!  Your stone will look great once it has it’s permanent “home” setting. ๐Ÿ™‚
