2ctw diamond earrings too big or too small on my ear?

I personally love the 2 ct. ones! Very pretty and very dressy. :)

Edit: Now that I see the 1 ctw. ones, they dont really look that much smaller. They are plenty blingy! Maybe get 1.5 ctw., or .75 each if you think 2 cts are too big?

I have ear and lobe envy ;-) (mines are huge in comparison to your dainty ones). Both look great on you. If in doubt, go big!

2 ctw. pair looks good on you and seems proportionate to your ear size. Don’t go too small if your heart is set on a larger pair or you’ll be trading up down the road. Enjoy! Can’t wait to see pic when you get them.

The 2 ctw look perfect on you! They stand out beautifully on your lobs in an elegant way.

Love the 2ctw on you! Its such a perfect size that you can wear for years to come :)

I wear 1.5ctw as daily wear and it is also a great size for smaller ears. But I definitely see myself going bigger in a few years.

2ct makes an impact, but the 1 ctw will probably be more comfortable for everyday wear. I agree with splitting the difference and getting around 1.5 ctw. I’m biased cos mine are 1.66tcw.

You can‘t go wrong with either but I tend towards 2ctw (because of diamond shrinking syndrome) but wouldn’t go much bigger so it is a good piece for everyday wear! Looks great on you!

I agree that the size difference is not as big as I would have thought. I have larger lobes and bought 1.8ctw studs for daily wear. There was a big price increase to go from .9 to 1 carat each.

As long as you have lobe around the earrings they are not too big so my advice is go as big as you can and still have lobe surrounding the earrings.

And they all look great on you. You can wear any size @caribbeanbridetobe :appl:
