Would you be able to tell the difference in size between a 1.20 and a 1.40ct round diamond once set in the setting? Would there be a very noticeable difference? Thanks in advance.
using this rule, and looking at the chart, i think it will definitely be noticeable it also depends on the size..a .3mm difference on a smaller stone is likely easier to see than on a largerthbmok|1311541710|2975917 said:In my experience I need at least 0.3 mm difference in diameter to see an outright size difference, without the aid of side by side comparisons.
Ditto to all of this! You don't need the extra size if it is going into a halo, IMO. Or you could split the difference and get a diamond in the 1.3 range, too. Be sure to stick with ideal/excellent cut.Gypsy|1311581850|2976210 said:With a halo? I'd go for the 1.2. I think you'd be much better off investing your money in a platinum setting. And I adore that particular Beverly K.
