I’ve looked through the threads, if you haven’t posted before or even if you have i’d love to see yours. My solitaire looks freaking tiny to me. Even though I have small fingers (size 4, more like a 3.75 though) and it looks like a .5 carat to me.
I don’t care about the numbers, I just want the finger coverage. Am I crazy or does this look small to you guys? it’s not a deep cut or anything, and it is set pretty low…but it just looks like a baby to me. I’m kind of dissapointed. 🙁 (In myself…I picked it not my husband lol)

@nicole1276: mine is .73 and my ring size is 4.5. This may sound strange, but I find that my solitaire looks bigger from a distance rather than close up. It may just be me though.

Maybe if you tried on a .5ct solitaire, comparatively you’d feel better about the size of your stone? It’s a lovely ring, certainly not tiny. 🙂

I think all bees go through this at some point. I have days where it feels like my ring shrunk…like it was a little bigger just 2 days ago, what happened? Then after a while, days or weeks go by then I notice my hand and I find myself thinking “WOW! I have a ROCK!” lol
It happens. I usually stop looking at ring threads and ring photos and then my ring looks “good” again. It’s a perception thing, I guess.

@nicole1276: It doesn’t look small to me at all! Mine is a 1/2c center and it’s definitely smaller than yours! I wear a 6.5.

I don’t think it looks tiny…looks pretty healthy to me

@nicole1276: Don’t let other rings make you question yours! It is beautiful and classic and you obviously chose it for a reason – it may not be a whopping great big 3ct rock but I certainly wouldn’t think of it as small either, especially as you have small fingers, it’s very nicely suited 🙂

My center stone is I THINK .78 (I don’t remember, though – it’s definitely between .75 and .8). I always think it looks big, but everyone I know has small center stones.

@nicole1276: I think it looks perfect on your finger! Mine is also a .75 ct round, but I sometimes wish we went larger because the setting seems to belittle the diamond.
Here is my ring on my size 5.5 finger:

Sigh, I’m with you. I have a size 4 finger and 4.5 ring, and I feel like my 1 carat (ideal cut and proportions) looks much smaller than similar sizes I see on the bee.

@StL.Ashley: whoa, I have a 1.01 carat on a size 4 finger and mine looks tiny compared to yours, despite having very good proportions (almost exactly 6.5mm). What size is your finger?

I have a .75 carat and I am a size 4.5. It will seems to look a little bigger though since it is a marquise and they are decieving. Silly things. Your .75 carat looks like the normal size—no worries!

LOL I have exactly the same problem…my center is a little over 2ct…and every time I look at the pictures of other 2 ct rings on the message board I think that mine looks smaller….I even got paranoid that our jeweler scammed us..and gave us a smaller stone with a wrong gia certificate….

Mine is a .75 (give or take .01, I’ve forgotten) and my finger is a 5.

@TaurianDoll: this is totally true! I go back and forth from being “omg this is a huge stone!” to…”hmmm, should it be bigger?”
I think my problem is that I used to wear a lovely blue topaz ring on my left hand middle finger, and it’s fairly large. My purple sapphire is slightly smaller (just shy of 7 mm, while the topaz is 7mm cushion cut), but the ring itself is super gorgeous and elegant (also my middle finger is larger (size 6, compared to 4.75 for e-ring), therefore needs a larger stone!)
