I would personally go for the smaller one, and maybe just spend a little extra on the quality of that stone ๐Ÿ™‚ I think that looks nice on you, but it sounds like you’re leaning toward the smaller one anyway. I wear the same size as you and my center stone is .80 ct equivalent and I love it, I don’t think I could go much bigger without feeling like the ring was wearing me vs. the other way around.

However I think it just depends on what you love! ๐Ÿ™‚ Is there another jeweler that carries the smaller one so you can see what it looks like on your hand?

I think the size in the photo looks perfect on your hand and not “too big” at all! I think if you end up getting the smaller size (when you can afford the bigger one and you have already tried it on), you run the risk of having regret that you possibly settled for something less than you could have gotten. I’m not saying 1 ct is small or anything less than perfect because it’s not! Just saying that you might want to really really think about what’s important to you in a ring in terms of size, cost, clarity, etc. so you don’t end up wishing you got something different. Hope that makes sense ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, I think that since the band of the setting is plain and the main focus is the center, you can go a bit bigger without fear of it looking gaudy.

I love how it looks on your hand!

I just PM you back with my advice on getting the medium if you can, but you can still put a fairly small (well.. I guess it’s not small but compared to 1.5 ct) stone in the centre.. Like 1ct or just under to help with budget.

I can’t see the photo (my work computer blocks them sometimes) so I’ll check back into the thread later and have a look.

I have the large basket with a sapphire on a size 8 finger and I dont think it looks big at all.  The nice thing is that the setting makes your stone look bigger anyway so I think a 1ct in the setting would look bigger than a straight solitaire.  I’d say look at a 1.25 solitaire on your hand and see if you like the coverage of it.
