Hey Everyone! New member here, and hopefully engaged soon!
I was “playing” with my mom’s rings trying to get an idea of carat size on my finger. Can any of you give me an estimate of the ct weight of these two rings, please? My mom doesn’t know for sure but she thinks the small, yellow gold one is about .5 and the larger white gold one is roughly 1.5. For reference, my finger size is a 5.5!
Any opinions on what size (it doesnt have to be one of these two sizes) would suit me would be great, too!
AApologies if the pic is ridiculously huge, and PLEASE try not to be jealous of my sweet mani 😉

the larger one looks like it is atleast 2 carats to me
ETA: Print this chart out for reference:

do you have a ruler handy? you can check the mm to get an approximation.

Thank you both, I measured the smaller one and it is just a touch bigger than 5 mm, which according to the chart puts it slightly under the half carat mark.
As for the bigger one, it’s on my mother’s hand right now so I’ll have to wait til tomorrow to measure 🙂

I would guess the larger one is like 2 carats

@Dell79: I agree, the larger one looks like more than 1.5ct. I’d guess 2-2.25. 0.6-.7 would be my guess for the littler one. It looks a tad bigger than .5

I may be off but the larger one looks to be at least 2 ct. I would judge the smaller ring to be .75 but then again I can’t tell how high it’s set (which would make it look larger from a top-down view).
