We found a great diamond in our price range that fits all of the criteria but I am on the fence as to if it will look too pretentious. The diamond is a round and 2.7ct. I always had a 2 ct in mind and never thought I’d be in a position to be thinking if a diamond is too big! I have large hands (size 9 ring) and am 6 feet tall so I am thinking it may be a good fit but I am worried it might look over the top. I wish I could try it on in a standard setting but won’t know how it looks until it is made since the rings in stores only go to above my 2nd knuckle.
Thanks for your your opinions!

2.7cts sounds good to me! Is it a modern round brilliant or an antique sort of cut?

Order one of those adjustable stone holder rings, that way you can see what the stone will look like on your finger, they are super cheap and can be found on amazon. Yes it is a big diamond, but I don’t think it will too big on you. I bet you will love it!

For a size 9 finger, 2 ct. sounds just right!

has a great suggestion, but you can also guess-timate based on finger coverage percentages!
So a diamond that size on a finger your size would be around 48% coverage, so that’s comparable to a 1.75 ct on a size 6 or a 1.5 ct on a size 5. You can google for ring pics with those specs to get an idea of how it will look. I have a 1.5 on a size 5.5 so I am biased, but I say go for it!

I think a 2.70 will look perfect on your size 9. I’m a 9 too and the stones that ideally fit me are always between 2-3 ct (8-9mm).

I would totally rock a 2.7 ct stone, and I only have a size 5 finger!
If you think the stone is pretty and it makes you happy to look at it, wear it. I don’t think it’ll look too “showy” at all.
