    rdtobee :  I voted for 2 carats because you said you wanted it to stand out and be the center of attention! I have a 1.5 carat oval diamond on a size 5.25 finger and I feel it’s juuuust right. Mine is a very nice size, but I would def be standing out if I had 2 carats ๐Ÿ˜„. Perhaps in the future as an upgrade ring ๐Ÿ˜Œ. Keep in mind, my fingers are short so my fingers look a little stockier, and that’s why a larger size would have decent finger coverage on me.  If you have long fingers, it might look different!

    This one is the Charles & Colvard 8×6 oval moissy, which I think is about 1.35 ct diamond equivalent?  (close to that anyway).  Size 5.5. I put several shots so you can see it with bands, far away, etc.

    rdtobee :  Depending on size of finger I think you could easily go up to 2 carats if not larger.  I have smaller fingers and could probably handle a 1 carat with a halo but no larger.  There is one bee on here I don’t know her stats but she has the most gorgeous oval and it’s pretty large as well.

    I think 2 carats is a great size! Not too big but big enough to get some attention ๐Ÿ™‚

    Depending on the ring, I think 1ct is a perfect size. I have a .8ct dew moissy, and find it stands out lots. Especially if you don’t wear a lot of jewlery, a 1ct will stand out plenty. So bascially, get whatever of these sizes you like best and don’t worry too much, it will stand out lots ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think mine appears slightly larger because it’s an elongated oval (l to w ratio of about 1.5)

    I said 1.5cts but it’s your hand… go nuts! Ovals face-up larger than rounds so even a 1ct stone will appear nice and large.

    mrsttobe2019 : I recently tagged you in another post asking about you ring specs. I just had to comment again here because you have the same band I have been dreaming of! Your set looks almost identical to the one I sent my SO.
