How small could this engagement ring be without throwing off the look of the set

KrisMarch:  I think a half carat would look great with those thin bands. I stack a thin band with my .58ct ering and I think the proportions are delicate and pretty. Here’s mine:

I love Rosado’s Box, btw. They have such beautiful items! Good luck choosing!! 🙂

KrisMarch:  A half carat is a great size, it doesn’t get in the way and it’s still very noticeable IMO. If you get a colorless diamond, yours will look even bigger. My diamond is a warm champagne color. Sparkle is what I love most in a stone and you can have a small sparkler. My grandma’s ring is about a .35 and it out shines most of what I’ve seen in person with its intense fire. I’m talking flashes of red and green from across the room. Size doesn’t matter. “Cut” is king 🙂

KrisMarch:  What size finger do you have? The first number that popped into my head was .50 carat.  IMO,  I think that would still give you the look you like without blowing the budget.  It would look really nice with the 3 thin bands.  Great choice!

You can pull off a stack with most any size so. 50 will look great! Sorry no pictures I don’t have a stack yet!

I think a half carat would work fine with that set!

KrisMarch:  to be honest i really think it depends more on your finger size. That is the biggest factor in determining what will look good with the set. 

If you have a size 5 or under, a 0.5 would look perfect

at a size 6-7 you’d probably want around a 0.75ct

Size 7+ would be nearing the 0.9-1ct range to keep the proportions for that set!

drA:  +1 what finger size do you have? I have size 2.25 fingers and my 1/3 ct looks much closer to a .6!

I think .5-.75 would still look great

I think u can play with the thiness of the bands to maintain the proportion you desire, and a .5 carat will work
