I actually thinks it’s a good size already, but appears smaller because of all the wedding bands. I bet it looks better as a standalone.
But hey, if you want to keep wearing it as a stack, like others have said you can definitely rock a 2 carat!

your finger is large enough (like mine) to support a larger stone and if you dont want it to get lost in your stack 2+ carats makes sense to me

if 1.25 is looking too small for you and 2 is too big for you … what about 1.75?
btw I like the current ring, and the 2 carat look as well.

I believe it’s the curved band thats making your main stone appear small. Can you post a picture of your stack without the curved one

The 2 ct size looks great on you, but once again – the stack is making the center stone look smaller. If you want your center stone to stand out more, my vote would be to move the 2 straight bands to the other hand as tight hand rings and try your engagement ring with the curved band only. I think if you do this your ring will magically “grow.” Either way, it’s a beautiful set. 😊

Very nice set. You pull it off very well.
I honestly can’t see much of a difference because the stone gets lost in all the blingy bands. Either size looks just fine.
Have you considered a colored 2 carat? That would pop

I also kind of think a 2 ct would still get lost in the stack. Initially it might seem a lot bigger, but with time, I wonder if you’d still feel it doesn’t stand out against your stack. If you want to go bigger, by all means, but I think switching out your current bands for a couple thinner ones would make your stone pop more. Then you could just wear your current ones on your right hand?
Either way, your current e-ring is gorgeous and super sparkly, and I think the whole set of sparkly rings together still is eye-catching!

Thank you for your responses and compliments ladies!
I wore my set yesterday just to see how I really felt about it and was in awe the entire day. It’s so pleasing to me. But I would like to see a bigger stone so I can see bigger sparkles.
im pretty shy and don’t necessarily want attention or questions. Generally I’m the only one who cares about my ring and I just want to be happy in the end. I don’t want to look down and think I’d like bigger. But I also don’t want to stand out.
honestly, if it got “lost in the stack” to others that would be okay. It would help me to avoid comments and questions!! I don’t think it would get lost to my eyes.

TBH I worried about the attention I would receive because of carat size. I quickly got over it when I realized mine and his were the only opinions that matter. Wear your ring proudly, you’ll learn to tune out the noise and just enjoy it.
