    I actually really love your ring the way it is!  It is a great amount of finger coverage, and very cool.  I feel like a 2 carat in the beszel would be too much.

    I really like your setting, it has a clean, modern look and I love the way it looks with the other two rings there. It’s hard to picture what it would look like as a 2ct but assuming its similar, I think its unique and beautiful!

    I think that size looks great on you. I hadn’t seen many bezels until I came on to this site and I actually like it. It is different and unique. I love your set.

    Your ring’s lovely!  It’s got great finger coverage, and is a really nice style of bezel (it’s delicate, as opposed to bulky).  I love your ring; it’s got the great mix of sleek & modern, stylish, and practical.  A little ring regret’s normal, don’t worry.  My 2 cents is keep your current ring, then when the Amora Gem comes out in 3 years, get yourself that Tiffany knife edge as a nice Anniversary present.

    I really like that bezel! But I do think that a 2 ct in that setting or same style setting would look ENORMOUS.

    your ring is really stunning as-is!  if you are going to upgrade, why not keep this one, and get a new 2ct one that is a completely different style, such as that Tiffany one you mentioned? that way, you can change it up depending on how you feel.

    No don’t change the setting, yours is one of my favorite settings on the bee! I like your ring as is and I think it’s a great size for your finger as is, but if you’re considering upgrading to a larger stone I think bezel settings are great for larger stones too. The JbEG Julia Bezel is one of my all times favorites, here it is with a 2.68ct OEC.

    2ct would be way to big IMO! I really like bezels and really it probably is a good idea to protect your stone.

    I have a 2 carat with some small side stones and love it! Its not to big and as much as I love bezels I do kind of agree regarding some of the wow factor being taken away.

    I love your ring as is but what I think doesnt matter…what do you want to do? It is up to you. Maybe buy a cheap costume ring to wear in the size you are wanting and see if you like it before you change your setting or go bigger. Then you can still have a play ring and not spend too much money on something you might not like 🙂
