!.5 over 1.2 definitely, you won’t be able to tell the difference between D and F

I think I’d prefer the 1.5, IF the 3k wasn’t a major player for your budget (which for me, it would be!) But all things being equal, 1.5 for sure ๐Ÿ™‚ Although either way, you’re gonna have a beautiful ring!!

Well cost aside, I would prefer the 1.5 as the difference between a D and an F is not at all noticeable.  However, I’m not sure that .3 more carats is worth $3k!  That seems like a lot!

I’m with meowkers. I don’t think you can tell between a D and F so I wouldn’t be worried about that… but 3k does seem like a lot for .3.

i would prefer the clearer diamond, the difference between 1.2 and 1.5 at that size in minimal

This is a tough one!  I would say if the budget is not an issue the 1.5.  Although you won’t be able to tell the difference between the color the size is nice!  But then again is a 1.21 and a 1.5 a huge difference in size? I mean I know it is, but can you really tell..  Keep us posted!

I’d get the cheaper.  The weight (~ 1/2 mm) & color differences are negligible.  The thing that will make the biggest difference is the cut grade which you don’t mention.  Save the $$$ and get a “bling”ier setting.

Good work on the cushion – I love that cut!

I’m going to go with the group and vote 1.5 as well.

I’d prefer the smaller D diamond, personally… I have to pull gloves off and on a million times a day and I’m not a very showy person ๐Ÿ™‚

I would go with the 1.21 Cusion Cut, D, VS2! Like the other posters mentioned there isn’t much difference in the color and the extra .3 I dont think is going to make a huge difference either. Yes it’ll be bigger but it’s also 3k more and I think your Fiance might appriciate your suggestion of using the money you save toward the wedding. The ring pic you posted before is beautiful and I wouldn’t change a thing!!

Are you having second thoughts?? If so don’t you made a great choice!

I would probably opt for the one visibly larger. A carat weight and how a diamond faces up might not be that much difference. A smaller weight might face up the same size as a larger diamond its size depending on the cut. a

Also, most people can’t tell the difference in color between D and F. Also what ist he cut like? Maybe the cut isn’t as good on the D as it is on the F. Really, there are many, many factors you could base your decision on because it’s more than just color and clarity.

Get what you can afford and which one sings to your heart. That would be my advice.
