How a ring is percieved is also heavily dependant upon ring size.  If her fingers are tiny, the stone is going to appear larger.  Can you ask her ring size?

Her finger’s probably a 7-8. 

I think the ring is around 1 carat

It’s not that rude to ask her. I think it’s more rude to post her photo online on a public forum.

It looks like a 1 carat to me too.

Her finger looks bigger than mine and I have a 2 ct that sits similarly in terms of finger coverage. I do not think it’s a 1 ct. I would say likely 2.

Why don’t you go to a store and try some on? I went to a bunch of mall stores to just try on rings and see how the different ct sizes looked on my finger, even though my FI went to a jeweler (that I had never been to) and got it custom made.

I would say closer to 2. Maybe not 2. But def. not 1.

@chloechloe:  i would suggest going to a few jewellery stores and trying on a few different sizes and shapes.  you need to do this.  rings look different on every hand and what looks good on this particular girl, may not look the same on you.

@chloechloe:  That is fine and dandy. I just think most people would be taken aback if they saw someone else reposted a photo of them… like if she stumbled across this board, she might be like WTF. lol maybe that’s just me. I don’t know if she’s a friend of yours or some random woman.
