    I genuinely can’t imagine wearing anything more than a carat. Mine is .70ct and it’s plenty big enough. I have little fingers though.

    Depends on the hand, some people can carry a 2 carat like it’s nothing, and some ladies look overwhelmed wtih .5!

    I think over 2cts.  But the setting plays a part, High prongs, halos, anything that really adds to the stone will make me say “woah too much”, because its too much on the finger, not the stone itself tho.

    I think it really depends on the size of the hand/fingers.  My fingers are size 7 and I think my rings look the right size on me.  My daughter has delicate little paws and my e-ring looks much larger on her! 

    I think “huge” is a 3 carat stone.

    I have a size 4 finger, so anything over 1 or 1.5 ct looks HUGE depending on cut.

    Over 2 would look big on any hand imo.  I wear a 4.25, and think 1.5-2 would be perfect.

    9ct was definitely too big for me!

    @LilMsMicro:  2+ only?  I don’t think it’s enormous or huge until it’s over 3.5ct, so I can’t really vote in your poll.

    i think a solitaire over 4 carats is huge.  i would wear it though.  i love large diamonds and i only have a 5.5 finger.

    I think whether it looks bad depends on the setting.  My sister has a gorgeous 4-5 ct (not sure how big exactly).  Maybe 10ct would be too big? 🙂

    I’m a size 4.5 finger, and I have a 2.2ct Ring Bearer center stone.  Personally, I think it’s big but not huge.. looks a lot bigger in photos.  If I had a halo around it, it just might look huge to me.

    I think nearing 3ct for a center stone is huge… but not gonna lie, still very desirable 😉
