if you can measure the size in millimeters, you should be able to get a ballpark size. holding it up next to a dime doesn’t show much.

Honestly, that’s hard to tell. In the first pic, I would consider guessing 1ct. In the second, I’d consider guessing closer to 2.

/edit – Damn, I’m tired and dizzy from wine; I first thought that coin was a quarter, but it is a dime.  In that case, .83c stone.  Which is close to the size of my stone.  Love those .4 to .9 ranges.

have you tried measuring it with a ruler?

There’s a great free Android app called Smart Ruler. You can place the diamond directly on the ruler on your phone and see how many mm’s it is.

Or, a physical ruler, yeah. A magnifying glass or loupe might be handy too.

I’m going to guess smaller, like .4 carat. My diamond is 2 carats and it would take up roughly half the width of a dime.
