We are considering upgrading my center stone, a 1.75 round brilliant, purchased from ritani. Based on their upgrade policy, we are looking for a diamond around $13,500. I am very pleased with the performance of my current specs (J, with blue flour, ideal cut, vvs2) but am looking to go up in size. I would love to hear opinions on this stone: https://www.ritani.com/diamonds/round-diamond-2-28-Carat-J-color-GIA-certified/D-J03SSF , and any other stones in the $13,000-$14,000 price range. Again, I am comfortable with my J currently, but nervous I may have "lucked out" with a J on the better end of the spectrum. I would also be interested in hearing from those with more experience than myself as to whether this size difference would truly be noticeable. My current ring size is 6.75-7. If anyone has any hand shots with a diamond of this size I would love to see those as well!

Yes, the size difference would be noticeable, but I don't love the numbers on that stone. Here are some parameters below to help you have a better chance of getting a good one. I think some of their stones are in-house, and I'd recommend looking at those first (Reserve Ideal). I really don't advise buying blind.

table: 54-58

depth: 60-62.3

crown angle: 34-35.0

pavilion angle: 40.6-41.0

(Nevermind, I don't see any in Reserve Ideal that are close to your specs and budget in I or J color.)
