    I color, SI1, XXX round brilliant. It does NOT look yellow.  If you’re getting a RB that is cut well, you can get away with lower colors.

    The center stone is 1.6 cts.  There is an additional 0.4 cts in the setting.

    For this ring, my size is a 4 because the band is SO tiny.  For other rings, I normally wear a 4.25.

    Also, when we were looking, the two main stones my Fiance and I considered were this one and a 1.3 ct RB.  There was DEFINITELY a difference.  With fingers this small, that bump in size looks like a lot.  You will have a LOT of finger coverage with a 1.6ct + halo.

    I don’t think there is much difference between 1.4 and 1.6 honestly. I also think H is still very white.

    I have a 1.6 center diamond on a size 5 finger:

    I have a 1.44 center stone, size 5 finger. I don’t think you’ll see a huge difference between a 1.4 and 1.6 ct.

    I really don’t think you will see a huge difference in 1.4 and 1.6. I mean, we are talking millimeters. And I have an H color, and it looks plenty white to me. As long as the cut is excellent, I think any of them will be just fine.

    I have a 1.57 oval on a 4.75 finger. I love the finger coverage I have. Hope this helps!

    emd014:  I upgraded from a 0.75 ct to a 1 ct and even that size jump was worth it.  I think you will love the upgrade in size.  Congrats!

    I would get the larger H.  With a well cut stone, it will sparke more and look bigger than one the same size with a lesser cut.  The difference between G and H will be miniscule.

    I would definitely get the larger H.

    And, if you’re getting a RB, you *might* want to look at an I color if you are getting an excelllent quality stone.  🙂
