    @Btrfly:  lol don’t feel bad.  I upgraded my diamond about a week ago because I wanted a better quality bigger center diamond before we got married and because I didn’t get that girly excited feeling when looking at my diamond as I do now.  My Fiance was totally cool with it and helped me pick it out, 🙂

    I’d always go for the bigger diamond.

    I would DEFINITELY go with the higher quality Tiffany, but I’m VERY quality over quantity (My centerstone is 1ct and cost 7700 just for the rock!)

    However, I think you said you cared more about finger coverage than diamond quality, right? So then the bigger one seems like the natural choice for you! And I don’t think you have to worry about passing it along to your grandkids–I’m sure they would be thrilled to get either one!

    I said the 2 carat before I read your update. If the quality is that different I might lean toward the Tiffany. I would probably vote for the third option of 1.5 ct in a similar quality to the Tiffany stone though

    @MissFireFlower:  This.

    Both of them are beautiful, so it’s really down to what you love. I don’t believe in “diamond shrinkage” at all, so it’s about what you want.

    I would never go with Tiffany’s.

    Heres my no name 2.52 center J diamond. She is pretty and I love her and no yellow apparent in her color. Tiffany’s was on our list but we decided to get more bang for our buck.  I would go for the bigger stone because shrinkage does occur. 

     

    Good luck in your decision; they both sound like they will make a beautiful e-ring.

    @Btrfly:  I wouldn’t think “oh man that color is terrible, it must be a J”, but I might think

    “Oh what a pretty ring. it looks really warm. Probably a J or K”.

    I know my fair share about diamonds, and my ring is an H. Even though I am only sort of color-sensitive, I know that there are many people out there who would think that my H has a lot of warmth. Many people wand a D/E/F stone. I would have loved to have one, but I compromised on color and clarity to get an excellent cut and SIZE.

    Here is my 2.4 carat Round Brilliant, H, color, SI clarity, Excellent cut.

    I think it comes down to what ring you prefer.  Honestly, no one ever once asked me what store my ring came from, so unless you told everyone “It’s from Tiffany’s,” it’s likely the name won’t matter to anyone but you.
