0.81 to 1.34 ct Asscher - worth the upgrade?

Hi everyone!
I'm new to the forum and hoping to get your advice on a possible upgrade. I have a 0.81 carat Asscher e-ring currently, and a band that's 2mm thick - which makes the Asscher look smaller. I'm keen to get a bigger stone that would show the steps a bit better, but also keen to have it not look over the top. My finger size is 3.75 hence why I picked out the 0.81 carat in the first instance. I was thinking between 1.3 and 1.5, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of size difference between the two even if price-wise there's about $3000 difference.
My current Asscher faces up at 5.1mm and the 1.3 that I was considering on JA faces up at 6.1mm. Would there be a visible difference or should I go for bigger (honestly worried about having a stone that's too big cos I'm a fan of dainty jewellery)?
Would appreciate some advice thank you! :pray:

OP, to answer your question quickly - yes, there will be a visual difference. Can you please let us know what is your total budget for your new upgrade?

It would certainly be a noticeable difference.
I’d suggest posting a few that you are interested in to have their cut assessed because a good cut with nice light return also helps a diamond look larger ;)2

Oh yes, that will definitely make a noticeable difference on your hand. At under a couple of carats or so, I'd say it's worth the trouble and expense if the new diamond is at least half again as large as the current diamond, which yours would be.

Also, I wouldn't worry about getting a diamond that's too large because it probably soon won't seem like it; you'll probably just quickly get used to it. So I'd go more by what you can comfortably afford. Also, as you've mentioned, what shows is the diamond's surface dimensions, not the carat weight. Good luck!

I think your current ring looks lovely :) but as we all know here on PS, DSS (diamond shrinkage syndrome) is a real thing ;-) :lol: so many would agree with the Bigger Is Better approach! :D

Have you tried different sizes on locally (while not getting sucked into buying whatever the jeweller has in stock)?

Do you know if you like modern cuts or vintage cuts? Check out gemconcepts.net for the latter :) and look for Jimmianne's thread on her 'Mildred'!
