I've been reading this forum and getting better educated for some time now--thanks everyone. I have a very subjective question and was wondering what people thought was better for an e-ring, a 2-2.3 carat solitaire or a 1.6-1.8 with nice size sidestones for a budget around 25k. Opinions please. I've noticed that when comparing apples to apples there is a huge jump in price from 1.6 up to 2.0--almost double. What's more impressive?
