    For comparison, this is a 1 carat center stone on a size 4 finger. Pears appear larger than other cuts, so people often comment on how this ring looks bigger than 1 carat.

    Mine is smaller than you are looking at, but it is rose gold so might be helpful. It’s around 0.55ct and it is a size 5.25 because my fingers swell.

    Mine is all white gold .63 ct H VS2, my ring size is 5.5, I initially wanted a .80-.90 ct but I felt them gigantic on my hand for everyday, try to find a good sized pear a lot of them are cut beautifully and weight less that they appear like mine.

    Just want to add pear looks larger than other stones so on her slender finger, 1.5-2 ct is going to look huge, especially with a halo.

    I am dreaming up redoing my original engagement ring with a larger old pear cut moissanite, and this is a 12x8mm CZ I got to play around with for size. Obviously not set, but if she likes big I say go for the 2+ carat.  I am a size 4, my original engagement ring was a 9x6mm (roughly 1.25 carats) in a 14k white gold bezel.
