|A 1.5 carat diamond is a wise choice because it is difficult to distinguish from a 2 carat diamond, which is much more pricey. Ritani has a large selection of diamonds in the 1.5 carat range in a variety of shapes. Round cut diamonds are the most popular diamond shape, followed by the princess cut and the cushion cut. If you are looking for a 1.5 carat diamond that appears larger, choose a marquise cut, pear cut, or oval cut diamond. These trending diamond shapes appear bigger than they really are because of their large surface area. A halo setting can also enhance your 1.5 carat diamond ring by making it appear larger. Or let your 1.5 carat diamond be the star of the show with a simple but elegant solitaire setting. All Ritani natural diamonds are certified by either the AGS or GIA – the two most respected independent grading labs in the world. Remember, carat weight isn’t everything. Make sure to prioritize the cut grade of your 1.5 carat diamond - cut is the most important of the 4 Cs. Choose a premium cut grade, like Ideal or Very Good to ensure a sparkling, beautiful diamond.
