Is the size difference THAT noticeable?

What are the measurements on the two stones?  And what kind of setting are you putting it in?  If there is only a .14 difference on a stone that size and you’re doing a halo, bezel, 3 stone,  or other elaborate setting I doubt there will be a visual difference. 

That said, if you want the bigger stone, and it is equally beautiful… just get it.

I really DO NOT think H is too yellow. I have a GIA K realistically more a J and the color is very pleasing very white tons of fire. IDK. I would go with which ever one has more life, and more fire. Fire is EVERYTHING! Cant wait to see which one you pick. 1.9 will look amazing! mine is a 1.70 and the other day a JEWELER said to me “how big is your stone… 2.5 carats?” LOL I was like umm I wish lol, so truly get the one that preforms the best. Good luck!

@happy012:  do the 1.9!!!!!!! I really think you will be happier with it. I am size obsessed too so I GET IT! I would be VERY VERY tempted as well. BUT I promise you, the one with more fire/life/sparkle is the right choice! But then again on the flip size… 2 carats… I get it! lol

Why not get the larger stone and put it in a warm colored setting (yellow or rose gold)? What is your complexion/coloring? Are you warm or cool toned? I’d go with the stone/setting colors that look best with your skin.

Well $2000 sounds like a lot to me and if he is really keen on the less expensive one, maybe the reason is partly that but he doesn’t like to say They are both big stones and would, l should have thought, satisfy most women’s desire for size. 
However it turns out, l wish you both the best.

I’d choose the sparkliest one eventhough it’s hard to let go on size and still makes you wondering if you make the right choice (been there lol).. But 8mm is big enough IMO, don’t think 0,15mm would make a big difference once it’s set.

@happy012:  Right, I understand. But I’m saying to the naked eye, is the size difference even detectable? The answer, most likely, is no. Go with the prettier stone, regardless of carat weight. A well cut and lively smaller stone will always outperform a larger, but not as superior, one.

@happy012:  I’d definitely go with the whiter more lively stone, which is the smaller one in this case. My preference is: Cut is first, then color, then clarity, then carat. HOWEVER, it sounds like carat is higher up in importance for you. That’s the wonderful thing about diamonds…there’s so much to choose from! Get the one that makes you smile when you look at it!

.15 mm is nothing, and no one will know or care. Get the stone that performs better.
