I think the Tiffany setting is usually around 2.5mm, and that width looks great on everyone.  It’s stilly dainty, but not so dainty that it looks ready to snap in half.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  As for the being lower set, i don’t think the size difference will be much; if that style looked huge in 2 carats at the store, it’ll still probably look huge.

I would prefer the Tiffany setting. 2 carats is quite a big stone! Why don’t you set up a poll?

I say go with the 2ct since you’re considering it. A lot of bees (myself included) have felt “diamond shrinkage” as time passes. I think you are virtually guaranteed to feel it if you are aleady considering a larger stone. The lower setting does make a slight difference, but not much. If I thought I might want the two, that’s what I would go for. As far as the setting, I don’t like thick settings either. I’ve always wanted the thinnest setting possible for the reason you described and because I think it makes my hand look smaller/thinner (I wear a 5). If you like the look of the thinner setting, I would choose it. If the prongs are bothering you, contact MoCo and let them know what you don’t like about it. They can often make small custom changes like that.

I also think I have somewhat short, stubby fingers, and wear a 5.5, and I think 2-3mm bands look lovely (you can see photos of my fingers on the last post I started, if you want to compare haha). A band doesn’t have to be uber skinny to look flattering on small hands. 

Have you seen this BTD post? Might be helpful. Also, have you spoken to Moissyco about  making the knife-edge band thinner? I know they were able to do that for another Bee’s bezel ring.

Wrt the size, totally a personal preference. I think the 2ct is way too big for my own hand (but pretty sure I’m gonna go for the next biggest in a 1.5). If you like it on your hand, though, go for it!

i have a 1.5 center in a halo and i wear a size 7.5

i think a 1.5 solitaire would look amazing on your size.

Personally, I don’t see a big difference between the heads of the two rings, but, if it bothers you, I completely understand. There are tons of little details I obsess over that no one else would never notice. Also, I think the prongs and head of the setting are less noticeable when there is a larger center stone in them. If you go with a 2ct, these things may be less noticeable than they are in the MoCo pictures (it doesn’t say for sure, but I think they use a 1.5ct for their pictures).
