I have a 2 ct diamond center stone and my finger is a size 4.25 , I usually don’t wear any other jewlery… just a necklace Fiance surprised me with recently.. and I don’t think my ring looks gaudy at all.. with the size difference between our fingers I think that a 1.72 will look beautiful and not “too large” at all, plus, it sounds like thats the one you want 😉

I don’t think a 1.72 is going to look gaudy. I have a 1.71 Asscher, wear a size 6.5 and I’ve had people tell me how “dainty” my ring looks.

I think 1.72 will be the perfect size for your size finger. I have a 1.2 on a size 6 finger (with halo) and it is PERFECT in terms of “finger coverage” (for me at least) so the bigger stone you are considering will fit you nicely 🙂

That’s a 1.6 ct princess cut on my size 3.5 finger.  I don’t think it looks too big on me, and my fingers are ridiculously small, so I say go for the bigger stone!

go for 1.72

honestly, I think setting styles have more to do with a ring looking gaudy than stone size alone (unless the stone is gigantic). not that I think your setting is–what you chose is very classic looking.

I do like the setting you chose, and I do think you should go for the 1.72 ct!   I, too, have simpler tastes and I secretly yearn for a 2ct stone myself 🙂
