    I voted for .75 each because I think that seems like a lovely size for every day wear. No one would assume they were fake, and they won’t be so big that they’ll feel super heavy or look giant on your earlobes.  But I like my studs to be a little smaller, so that might just be based on personal preference.

    Can you go look at them in person to decide? I don’t think 1ct will look too big or compete with your ring, but you might see them in person and think otherwise.

    Won’t huge hair cover any sort of studs? Or is it an updo? I voted for 1 ct each.

    @PromiseRooster:  I agree with @Audrey2_sings 100%.  0.75 ct earrings would be lovely and elegant … Large enough to be seen but not so large that they draw more attention than your engagement ring or prompt a lot of questions.

    Well I love big studs but if you want people to assume they’re real and not get questions I would go .75 each. That’s still fairly big on ears but small enough not to draw stares and questions I think.

    I think it reaaaaaally depends on the size of your earlobes. The area where my earrings go is just 10mm across. Since a 2 ct stud should be a little over 8mm, that means less than a mm on each side would be visible, which would look like the bottom part of my ear had been eaten by diamonds. I personally can’t go bigger than about .75 ct in each ear for daily wear, just because I have small earlobes. On the other hand, I know women who wear real 2 ct diamonds in each ear daily and that looks totally fine and proportional on them. On me, it would look like I had gigantic suckers on, but their diamonds are about the same size proportionally on their earlobes as .75 each/1.5cttw would be on mine.

    I don’t make jewelry decisions on how it can match my ring so much as what looks best on me by my standards.

    On a different note, I have a diamond right hand ring that has been passed down through my family for a few generations. The centre stone is half a carat but the surrounding diamonds make a pattern that takes up almost the width of my finger. It was given to me last year and it feels like a part of me, I never take it off.

    My fiance and I were showing off my new 1 carat engagement ring to a friend of ours we hadn’t seen in a while and she said she abosultely loved my ring! Unfortunately, she meant my right hand ring, she thought that was my engagement ring. (Both this friend and I come from cultures where wedding rings can be worn on the right hand). I felt so bad for my fiance. I love, love my engagement ring andI took off my right hand ring for a few days because I didn’t want to somehow hurt my fiance’s feelings! That felt strange too, so I’ve put the ring back on and hope that doesn’t happen again.

    I have never posted a picture before so I will try to not mess this up! The first picture is of mybeautiful engagement ring and the second is a picture of my grandmother’s ring that I wear on my right hand.

    I wonder how earrings can be a bad match with a ring when it comes to size? Your hand isn’t close to your ears the whole day!
