I don’t think it will look bad.  2cts is not THAT huge, it’s not like you’re walking around with a crater on your hand.  What size finger do you have?  I am a 6 and getting a 1.5 round with a halo, it looks big but also fabulous Wink

While I wasn’t really in your situation, I like small rings.  I have a problem feeling too showy and I work in a low-income area, so I would feel awkward with a large ring.  It helps that my Fiance and I are also grad students and couldn’t afford a large ring.

I bet you’ll love it once you see it.  If it is too big to wear all of the time, could you get a modest band you could wear if you were going somewhere you didn’t want to be showy?  Big rings sure are beautiful, and I LOVE drooling over them lol

You also have to take into account “shrinkage”.  Just like a big tv, once you get it home it tends to look smaller to you

What size is your finger! I have a 1.44 round center stone in a cushion halo on a size 5 finger. I know it’s smaller than what you’re looking at, but rounds face up larger than princess cuts, so it might be comparable. I haven’t really felt judged about the size of my ring, but it does draw a lot of attention. I’m a shy person, so sometimes that is uncomfortable. I wouldn’t change a thing about my ring, though. I love it! Fiance has mentioned that he wished he could get me a bigger ring, but I couldn’t be happier with it.

I wouldn’t worry about it. If you love it, that’s all that matters.

I rock a 2ct with halo on a size 4.5 finger. I think you’ll love your ring and it will look beautiful on you! =)

2 carats is not gaudy. It is not even all that large!

 

Don’t stress. You have not even seen the ring yet- I am sure it will be lovely.
