    Difference between 1.25 and 1.5 carat diamond.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll look into altering the setting a bit.

    Difference between 1.25 and 1.5 carat diamond.

    I understand what you're saying. I'm the type of guy that does a ton of research before I drop big $$ and I've been educating myself on diamonds for about a month. The reason I'm zeroing in on a size is my fiance has very big fingers (size 9.5) and the desired setting band is VERY thick. I was at a local jewelry exchange and they placed a 1.09 carat emerald cut on top of the setting and it did look a little small. They then placed a 1.5 carat princess cut on the setting and it was spectacular.
  3. I'll be purchasing an engagement ring in the near future. The setting will be white gold with baguette accents down each side. It's a very thick band. I'm aiming for 1.5 carats, but I don't want to sacrifice quality for size so I'm wondering what the visual difference is between a 1.25 carat center stone and a 1.5 carat. Is it significant? If I have to, I'll spring for the 1.5. I'm looking at either a princess or emerald cut. Do either one of those appear larger then the other? Also, my fiance has big fingers, size 9.5 so that's certainly a factor (lucky for me).
