Difference between 1.5 Inch and 2.5 inch Rings?

Sorry for the second post today, but I was getting ready to order my new bit, when I saw that there is a choice between a 1.5 & 2.5 inch rings on a full cheek mouthpiece. What difference do the sizes make? The mouth piece size I am getting is 4.5inch if that makes any difference.
Thanks!

I've not seen this before on a long cheek snaffle but I'd want smaller rings on a pony sized bit (probably 13.2hh and under/5" or smaller).

I can't see any mechanical advantage using smaller or larger sized rings on this bit so it's likely just cosmetic.

Not sure if that helps or not

I hadn't seen it either. This was the first I've heard of it, but went with the 2.5 ring because that seems to be the standard as far as I've seen. If I hear any difference in the size later on I might try the smaller.
Thanks for the comment!

I'm thinking if your reins are wide you'd want the larger ring. Half inch reins would be ok with either.
