Maybe it’s just me, but I love larger pears. I think a 2 ct would look fabulous. Now, if you said you were upgrading to a 5 ct I might hesitate and ask your ring size and where you’re from, etc. But 2 would be fine. Sorry I don’t have any pics for you. But I’d love to see if anyone has anything to share.

I know a bee that has a ring that fits that description…kinneybride. I know she’s posted a few photos of her ring.

@mixtapehearts: Unlesss we are talking Kim Kardashian range here it isn’t too big or too much. You and your BFF probably just haven’t different tastes, I have the same situation here. My BFF has a very simple ring and its lovely…I have a larger diamond and love it. To each their own. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a photo of mine since you said it didn’t have to be a pear, it is an oval halo over 2 carat center. It takes up a considerable amount of my finger because of the halo but I wouldn’t say it is too much (for me anyway).

I think a 2ct is a great size!  Could your bff be a bit envious?  I always advocate purchasing just shy of the size your around, you save a fortune and it doesnt look any bigger/smaller.  Obviously, thats just my thing.  Have fun shopping! 

My ring isnt 2 carats so thats why I didnt share.

@MASPA: “I always advocate purchasing just shy of the size your around, you save a fortune and it doesnt look any bigger/smaller.”


I had always heard the same thing but Darling Husband said it wasn’t true.  He said when he was buying my ring and looking at loose diamonds, there wasn’t a more significant price jump to cross the 1.00 ct than any other size increase.

ETA: Mine is 1.01 ct which is how the discussion came up.  I’d indicated that I was surprised he’d taken the price jump to go just over a carat instead of just under a carat.  He said there really wasn’t a price jump.

Eh, I don’t like “tacky.” Everyone’s tacky is different. My mom thinks any stone whatsoever on any ring is “tacky.” Just because she thinks it doesn’t mean it’s universally accepted. What do you want? Because I’d think if you didn’t get it simply because one friend didn’t care for it, you’d regret it. She’s not the one that has to wear it. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you really don’t feel hot about it, don’t get it. But I wouldn’t base your decision solely on what she thinks is tacky or not tacky. ๐Ÿ™‚

You should go try some 2-2.5 carat rings on & see how you feel about them. If they feel to big or just right!

Mine is 2.04 carats for the center stone; definitely don’t need a halo around it!

I agree with Mrs.Estep, you need to try some on! ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t listen to anyone else’s opinions, the decision is yours.

My mother’s ring always looked enormous to me, I could never imagine wearing such a big rock. She has a 2.25 carat looks like an emerald (old cut). Well about 2 weeks after I got my ring, I was at her house and we traded for a few minutes and wouldn’t you know, it didn’t seem so big anymore. In fact they were very similar in size.

Here is my pear, the center is only .86 but the finger coverage with halo is equal to the size you are looking at. By The Way I’m a 7.5

@Mrs.KMM: really? i found it to be not a huge jump but a substantial one, made a difference.  maybe it varies on shape?

@MASPA: Maybe shape does matter.  My ring is a round brilliant.
