Okay?  It’s all about preference.

@Supersleuth:  Larger diamonds/stones complement my hands rather well. 

As @abbie017:  said, it’s all just personal preference.

My size 8.5 fingers dont quite accomodate a “delicate” stone lol! I agree with PP that it is all about personal preference!

@Supersleuth:  Oh! Interesting. I think a large diamond can also look youthful, delicate, and not take center stage on a hand. I like them much better than small diamonds. (As in 1ct+) also as pp mentioned, I have large hands with long, large fingers so anything less than about .75 would look like a promise ring on me, and accentuate the bigness of my hands.

I like both, although I prefer slightly smaller for my fingers. I am a size 7.5, was a size 6 when we got engaged, and I have a 0.61ct ring, I love it 🙂 But I would love any diamond size that FI got me 🙂

Agree it’s personal preference. I prefer the size of my ring (.51 center diamond, another .5 on the band) on my small hands, but I have size 5.5 hands with shorter fingers. It’s the perfect size for me. I think larger stones are fitting on those with larger or longer hands if they want them. To each their own!

@Supersleuth:  I’m really weird. Some rings, I liked BIG, eg gem stone rings, and my engagement ring, which is a cluster.

But when it comes to a diamond solitaire or halo I prefer smaller rings; had I gone with either of those styles I’d have gone with something in the 0.5-0.65 ct range, as I love how delicate and classy they look. Bigger single diamonds just don’t do it for me.

@Supersleuth:  Umm… smaller than what? Some people think anything under 1 ct is small and others think anything over 1/2 ct is big. I think it depends on your finger size and the quality of the diamond.

@Supersleuth:  …..It makes me feel superiour that Im not a material person and dont need a rock to show my wealth and have spent the money on more important things like expanding my mind and helping starving children. Innocent

Or I just like all the diamonds. The little ones are prettier becuse they are like fairy dust and the whoppers are prettier because they are full of fire. They all look good on me. As do all the other gem stones. Surprised

I guess it is just preference Wink

I love small diamonds because so many of them look vintage!

But I also love big ass sparkle bomb diamonds.

@Supersleuth:  I’m one of those people that love ALL the diamonds! 

I don’t even have a preference on myself, the second ever ring SO bought me had a 0.02 diamond chip, and I still wear it.
Like I said.
Love ALL the diamonds.

@Supersleuth:  Not sure how they would be considered “youthful”.  I know plenty of women of all ages who have smaller stones.  Not just the young ones.

@Supersleuth:  I love relishing in the fact that my 0.82 carat, VVS1 (one step below flawless) diamond is much more valuable than many of the “big rocks” you see out there.  Quantity does not necessarily equal quality.
