Hello Bees! I am getting engaged soon and trying to pick out the right size diamond! We are on a budget, so although I would love to get 1+ carats, it’s just not gonna happen. I have a size 7 finger and I’m concerned that anything less than .8 will look very small, especially since I really want princess cut and those tend to look smaller. I’d love to see pictures of your princess cuts with carat size and finger size included. Thanks so much!!

@lilylily: you can do size comparisons on diamdb.com 🙂 princess cuts face up smaller than rounds … the website is really helpful to compare dimensions to see how you can get the most finger coverage for your money, lol.

My ring center is 1/3 carat on a 5.75 finger. (Well finger is probably 5.5 but my stupid knuckle is 5.75!) and I don’t think that it faces up too small! I actually would have guessed it was 1/2c if FI hadn’t shown me the certificates that go with it.

@lilylily: Yay! Congratulations! My fiance and I never discussed the type of ring I would like, but I told my best friend to sneakily tell him I wanted a princess cut! There was no other cut for me! 🙂
Mine is a .75 ct center, 1.01 tcw.
Good luck! 🙂
