That is very very good advice in general, but we are re-creating the "proposal" ring with just a larger center stone. Same style setting, same baguettes. This will be my 3rd MRB center - the first was pretty badly cut, but still sparkled, and it was a G, the second was a 60/60 H that had NO sparkle - just white. I want something that will throw rainbows. With the bright H white I was never that excited about how "bright" it was all the time so if this one appears optically more complex and dark at times I will not be broken hearted.I don't have a larger ring size but I do have large hands so I get what you mean about a three carat looking like a one carat on you. Just a thought in case you don't know, maybe you'd rather consider one of the elongated fancy cuts instead, since they appear larger on the hand (pear, marquise, radiant, oval...). That's why I got a marquise. It looks half again as big on my hand as my 3 carat cz does. Also, the fancy cuts average about 25% less expensive than the rounds.
