1.5 looks great on you but if you have the means to go bigger then go for it! Oval is a wonderful shape on your hand and personally, I like the symmetry more than the pear gives off.

Also, hand models need to have perfect hands for a living and I’m sure many of them are airbrushed, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it πŸ˜‰

I have an oval and I love that it elongates my fingers! Are you planning on getting a halo, as pictured? If so I think a 1.5 would look great and have more than an adequate finger coverage! I have 1.7 carat oval solitare, and it definitely has good finger coverage. I’m a 5.5 ring size (but wear size 6 rings all the time).

I think it looks perfect, and if you went to a 2ct, I would say drop the halo.

Looks beautiful on you and I agree with previous poster that if you go 2ct drop the halo. It’s a beautiful ring, I wouldn’t change a thing and it gives great finger coverage!

Shrinkage is real.. move up if you have even the slightest hesitation about the carat size you initially chose.  Changing it out later will be much more costly than bumping it up now.. good luck πŸ™‚

I recommend a Solitaire 2ct oval.

Any pics of pears on your finger. I think the oval pictured gives you great finger coverage but if you worry now that it may not be enough, then I say go bigger πŸ™‚

I think this looks great on your hand! I agree that if you go 2 to try out in a solitaire. I prefer oval over pear, but I’d have to see it in you to really know 😁
