Mine isn’t pear shaped but my center stone is equivalent to the size of a 2 carat diamond and then of course the halo adds quite a bit of size. I was really worried about it being too much on my size 5 finger but I don’t think it is. I think a 2 carat pear will be stunning!

@mtrl01: I LOVE YOUR RING!
@mixtapehearts: i would love a 2ct! 🙂 but i have a size 4 finger so that size would look ridiculous on me. what finger size are you? MAYBE your bff was coming from that angle…MAYBE?

I’m a 5.5 so pretty small and my fingers are long too. 2 carats+ a halo might be too much. I think I need to go back when the store isn’t so busy and really spend time looking and thinking about all the aspects.

My 2.2 marquise (or 2.3, I can’t remember)

Center stone is a little over 2, and my ring size is 4.5 if this helps at all!

I think it is going to depend on your taste. I would go to a jewelry store and try them on! I know when I went to buy mine, they let me see the diamond losely in the setting before I chose it. Pears will also seem a little bigger depending, then some of the other shapes.
In my opinion, pears are one of those shapes that you can go a little bigger on and it won’t look too gawdy. Good luck with your decision!

@AshleyR83: Love it! We are almost ring twns but your is bigger!
To the OP, ignore what she says! If I had the chnace for a rock that size I would jump at it in a heartbeat!!!!

i don’t think an upgrade is going to be too much. it all depends on your personal style and preference. like another bee said, go and try on a bunch of different sizes and styles to see what fits you the best.
here’s a pic of my ring. the center is 2.5 and and the halo/split shank add another .8 carats. for reference, my finger is 6.25

Here’s mine! It’s a 2.14ct Radiant cut, 5.5 finger.
And I wouldn’t worry too much about what your friend says, she’s probably jealous. I personally think that 2ct+ would look stunning, *especially* on tiny fingers as it will have that ‘wow’ factor.

I definitely wouldn’t listen to her. It’s YOUR ring. My ring, at 4 carats, is on the larger side and I love it! I don’t think it looks too big at all. I have a thin delicate band and I think that keeps it from being guady.

You should check out Mrs. Champagne, one of the bloggers. She has a beautiful pear engagement ring, around that size!

I agree! Definitely go for what you prefer 🙂
My center is 2.24ct and the total ct weight is about 2.74 i believe. Ring size 6

I don’t have a picture but my sister has a 2ct. pear solitaire (with a wrap, a blingy band AND an anniversary stacker) and it’s amazing!! She wears about a 6.5 and has short fingers, and it has always looked perfect, even though no one we know has anything close to that size (or shape). It sounds like your friend might be a *wee* bit jealous, but that’s just my opinion. If you like it and can afford it, then go for it!!
FYI, there’s a 2+ carat post on here I saw not too long ago with a TON of ring porn!!

Heres my 2.25 carat emerald cut surrounded by 1.8 carats on setting and band(diamonds go almost all the way around so not quite an eternity band). Its technically called a CrissCut which is cut more times than a traditional emerald cut so it sparkles a bit more. I wear just under a ring size 8. Love everyones rings!!!!!!!
