    Hypothetically speaking, if a ring was .25, should you vote for 0-.25, or .25-.5?

    I feel like polls like this would work better if based on stone dimensions, since stones like sapphires and even moissy have different carat weights than diamonds.

    I have a 1.01 carat diamond that’s in the 6.5mm range (like 6.52×6.55ish).

    @Najinc0122:  the poll will give you a broad idea, but I think the general consensus around here is that the average size on WB is higher than the average size in the general populatio.

    Hi @Najinc0122:  I see that this is your DEBUT post on WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

    I voted 0.75 to 0.99… as the Feature Stone in my ERing is listed as at 3/4 Carat

    BUT it is in actuality 80 Points (0.80 ctw)

    — — —

    You Poll is fine, as it stands…

    BUT as you are new here, you may not be aware of the following

    When Diamonds are talked about, they are often referred to either in points / decimals of a Carats as you have shown… or in Fractions

    The points / decimals that correspond to a Diamond’s Fraction (Carat Weights) are as follows:

    1/10 Carat = 0.09 to 0.11

    1/8 Carat = 0.12 to 0.13

    1/7 Carat = 0.14 to 0.15

    1/6 Carat = 0.16 to 0.17

    1/5 Carat = 0.18 to 0.22

    1/4 Carat = 0.23 to 0.28

    1/3 Carat = 0.29 to 0.36

    3/8 Carat = 0.37 to 0.44

    1/2 Carat = 0.45 to 0.58

    5/8 Carat = 0.59 to 0.68

    3/4 Carat = 0.69 to 0.82

    7/8 Carat = 0.83 to 0.94

    1 Carat = 0.95 to 1.05

    etc… so

    1-1/4 Carat = 1.23 to 1.28

    1-1/2 Carat = 1.45 to 1.58

    1-3/4 Carat = 1.69 to 1.82

    2 Carats = 1.95 to 2.05

    If you are NEW to the whole Diamond thing… you might want to check out the Education Pages on Blue Nile = http://www.bluenile.com/diamonds/diamond-education?elem=sub1&track=rotator1

    One of the better websites to start…

    Hope this helps,

    @medbride:  said,

    the poll will give you a broad idea, but I think the general consensus around  here is that the average size on WB is higher than the average size in the general population

    Agree, I believe I read that the average size is in the 1/4 to 1/2 carat range (so 0.23 to 0.58)

    Whereas most of the “Diamond” Rings shown here on WBee are above a 1/2 Carat

    — — —

    @letigre:  makes a good point…

    Many many women nowadays don’t opt for a Diamond at all… there are soooo many other GORGEOUS Options (be they natural or man-made)

    @Najinc0122:  My sapphire is 1.31 carats, but it faces up like a 1.2 carat diamond.

    @Najinc0122:  Fellow Cleveland area bee! Mine is a .86 round. She faces up a bit large. Like a PP, I think the boards are a bit different. I don’t see as many 1+ ct diamonds in our area as I do on here.
