As all of us ring fanatics know some cuts and settings make a ring look smaller or larger than it actually is. My ring is 1 ct. Does it face up exactly right, a little bigger or small? Feel free to post your rings and have us guess as well!! Here are 2 different views of mine.

that looks right, the bezel makes it look bigger than it is! lovely ring.
Mine faces up small for its size. for reference the stone in my wedding band is a .14

Hard to tell but I would have guessed based on those pictures it was closer to 1.25 ct. Just my opinion.

Looks about right, though I agree the bezel makes it look slightly bigger. Mine is slightly over a carat, but it faces up smaller than my friends’ who have rounds or princesses.

@LilMsMicro: I looked at it and guessed it to be 1ct, so it seems to be normal sized to me. However, I did have to think about how the bezel affected its appearance.
Great ring, btw!

I don’t know the carat weight of mine, so I’d be interested to hear what the guesses are 🙂 Size 6.5 finger.

@LilMsMicro: I’d say it appears to be a ct.

I love your ring! I think the setting does make it look a little bigger. Mine is just over 1 carat but it’s a cushion so it looks slightly smaller than a round 1 carat bi love it though!

@LilMsMicro: Oh, I forgot to say that I think yours looks bigger than a carat!

@sarahbabs: I’d guess just shy of a carat, maybe .85 or something. Here’s my 1.1 carat (e ring, band is 1.4 with 11 smaller stones). I’m also a 6.5 rin size.

@LilMsMicro: I guessed that your ring was at minimum 1.5 carats. So–there goes my assumption that a bezel setting reduces the size of it in looks.

I think they look different depending on the size of peoples fingers. Mine is cut correctly but looks small because I have a size 8 finger…

@LilMsMicro: I think we have the same ring..
Mine is 1 carat, but people think it’s a lot bigger because of the setting.

@LilMsMicro: I would have guessed 1.25-1.5 the bezel does make it appear larger. I am starting to like bezels more and more after seeing them on this site.
