    I vote 1.8 F! I think that it’s pretty hard to tell between a 1.8ct and 2ct ring. If you were deciding between 1.5 and 2, I might’ve voted the latter. But at the 1.8-2 range, I think the color difference might be more noticeable than the size difference. I have 1.8ct and it looks “big” to my eyes..

    Personally I prefer warmer diamonds, but if you are really colour sensitive and going with white gold (not rose or yellow) than maybe you should go with the F. I didn’t answer your poll because your post and poll question are different!

    I would go with the 2.0 H, but I chose a warmer, larger diamond for myself so I am biased :).

    What are the measurements? It could be a smaller than average spread for a 1.8 or 2.0.

    I would go with the higher quality, with such a small size difference I think the lower color will make the 1.8 ct look bigger

    I voted higher color. I’m personally very color sensitive and love icy white diamonds so I went higher in color and sacrificed size a bit. A 1.8 is still going to be plenty big. Here’s my F color diamond.

    With just ct weight alone it’s difficult to tell if they will look similar in size. The tool bellathefox posted will show you exactly what the stones would look like side by side based on finger size and then mm size of each stone (make sure you set the screen size to match your phones). 

    Have you seen the stones in person? You could have the jeweler show you what they look like in different colo settings. Also, depending on the cut of the stone, you may not notice the warmth in the H, which really color is mostly seen on the sides and bottom of the stone. 

    My stone is a G in color and a 2.03 ct but the mm is 8.14 so it faces up a little bigger so the mm is where it’s at comparing th sizing 🙂 My ginger is a size 7 so you can imagine that the 1.8 stone on your smaller finger will still have the wow factor you’re going for 🙂

    smarch8th :  Just chiming in to say I saw that you wrote that you were considering a silver setting? Silver is beautiful, but not terribly durable (usually). Have you considered palladium instead? Also, I voted for the 1.8 F color stone since you mentioned being color sensitive 🙂
