[quote=Blingaholic] If you buy thinking you have to keep it practical carat-wise, you'll only wish you went bigger later on. It happens to all of us, trust me on this one.
Totally agree with MD666 on this. On average I guess I wear a size 8 on my left finger.
It really varies from 7.5 to 8 but I decided to get 8.25 for stacking the ering with other bands.
My first Asha is a 2 ct (remember, 8.25 ring size), my second is a 3 ct. less than a year after. So yes, I am on the same boat.
I am know longing for a 3-stone ring for better finger coverage.
Here are some pics for reference and comparison: 2 ct cushion/top and 3 ct Asscher (step cut)/bottom.
