Newly engaged, we picked out an antique setting and are trying to decide which stone to put in. The specs are pretty much identical except for the size. Both J as I wanted a warmer glow, VSI for the smaller, VS for the larger.
I’ve been a lurker until now, but I need your advice bees!
It’s a 2mm wide band with a blecher setting.
Here is a photo of it before we received it
Part of what I like about it is the delicate prongs and the bletcher setting. I think that with the larger stone, some of the delicateness is lost. I want to pickout a forever ring though, so I’m worried that if we go for the smaller stone, I will want a larger diamond at some point.
Thanks for your help bees!!

The pics are too small for me to tell the difference! Do you have bigger pics?

I prefer the smaller diamond because it shows off the unique setting and it looks better on your hand.

I think the smaller stone compliments both your ring and your hand better. But I do agree that having a closer shot would make it easier to tell.

sorry! It’s my first post.
Are these better?
Ok these are huge, but I can’t figure out how to make them smaller or how to flip them.
Also they look a bit odd because the diamonds are just sitting on top of the setting. He ordered them from blue nile. My fiance is bring it to the jeweller tomorrow so I need to decide!

@franklyn: I don’t see much of a difference in size- maybe it’s just my tired eyes?! If there is a large difference in cost, I’d go for the smaller. If the prices are comparable, I’d go for the larger!

@little_d: There’s a bit of a difference, but not enough to make it a factor in the decision!

@franklyn: Ok then- larger gets my vote!

I can’t really see a difference.

I would go with the larger, since specs are nearly the same. 🙂

I’d go with the larger one, it fills up the setting better, IMO. That’s a very unusual ring, btw! Antique jewelry is so cool 🙂

Thanks for all the help. I’m going with the larger one, with the condition that our jeweller will change it for a very low cost if I feel its too big for the setting. Neither of them are huge stones, 1 carat isn’t for me budget wise, but I’m ok in that. This suits where we are in our lives now, and I have prety small fingers (4.5) so there is decent coverage.
