This may be a tough comparison – remember that most gemstones DO NOT come in a round setting. If they did, they would sit very high like a marble.  This is why most precious gemstones, like saphhires or emeralds, are cut in cushion or oval shapes.

@google:  I know that face up a 1 ct round looks bigger than a 1 carat cushion. Not sure about how it compares to other cuts. I think the elongated cuts like radient, emerald, marquis, and oval all appear bigger than a 1 ct round… but that’s just going by what I’ve seen as they happen to be longer and take up more finger space.

I dont have a ring to comment with but I do know of a great websit that you can compare stones on. http://www.diamdb.com

You can pick any stone of any carat weight and it compares to whatever other stone you choose. You can even adjust ring size, finger length and finger width. You can also change the color of the metal on the ring. It’s the best website!!!

This is my 1.5 carat pear. Pears face up a bit larger than most shapes. It’s 9.7 x 6.55 x 4.09. Edit: Oh…just noticed how old this thread is. Sigh.
