Head to jewelers row on Wabash, expect to see so many damn diamonds you'll want to crush your eyes... but when you're ready, you'll be fully educated and will know the exact diamond you want... and the price for that diamond. Don't feel bad saying something like 'I want your best price, if it's still the best price 2 hours from now, I'll be back to buy it'.
I know when I bought my wife's ring, I was looking at 1 ct, ended up with a 0.85 ct. As it turns out, it's still almost too big to look right on her hand. I decided on the .85 when I couldn't tell which was larger... .85 or 1.01 when they were 8 inches apart.
Bigger doesn't always mean it'll look good. Go for the one that accentuates her beauty, not one that makes her beautiful.
