    librarybeenc :  8mm would be about 1.65 carat which will give you excellent coverage. I don’t think you’ll regret a slightly larger size.

    I voted 8mm, I’m a size 7 and have an 8mm asscher cut and think it’s great coverage. Here’s a pic for reference:

    librarybeenc :  When choosing our diamond and setting, they said it should have a slightly larger girdle, and that meant it would be very safe and there would be very little coverage of the diamond on crown-angle. Here is an illustration.

    On the other hand, if a diamond has a very, very narrow girldle, it is also recommended to use a bezel setting. It would ultimately cover more of crown-angle, but would be best protected. Bezel also is excellent if there are any inclusions on the side that a prong wouldn’t cover.

    We had an excellent jewelery consultant. Sorry for info overlaod! ๐Ÿคช

    I’d say go bigger if you can. Rings tend to “shrink” after wearing them for a few days. Haha. I was worried mine would seem too big but I’m so glad I went a little bigger now. Center stone is 1.75 ct oval (9.57mmx 6.69mm) with half moons and shields as side stones. (Band has 5 ovals)

    I voted 7.5. The bezel setting will not take away from the stone. In fact, it will magnify its size. I used to have an 8 mm solitaire in a bezel, and that thing looked like 3 carats. I never got comfortable with how big it was.
