My coworker said today that “anything under 0.6 carat is like a speck on your finger”. I know she wasn’t trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, but my boyfriend and I have been looking at half carat diamonds and I was a touch offended. I think my ring is going to be beautiful and perfect! Anyone want to share your half carat beauties and get me excited again for my (hopefully coming soon) ring?

I have a 0.5 carat solitaire and I love it. I have small hands and its perfect.

I would write her logic off as silly! Just shop around here on the bee I have seen so many amazing rings in that size range. I personally love smaller more delicate rings. You should wear the ring, rather than the ring wearing you!

She wouldn’t be calling it a speck if I punched her in the face with it…

I think 1/2 carat is a lovely size. That’s the size myself and my SO were looking at when we were considering a diamond. However, we decided on an alternate stone.

Here’s my .50 centre stone. It is absolutely perfect, wouldn’t want it any bigger!!!

as someone with a smaller (it’s about .15 ct) stone, comments like that just piss me off. not everyone wants a big stone.
if i ever upgrade, i won’t go bigger than 0.5 ct. anything bigger looks weird on my hand, in my opinion.

katza: I never understood women who continue on the judgement about e rings. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about having something that you love! Here is my .50 carat center double halo. Your ring will be beautiful and I hope you get it soon!

Here are my rings (and DH’s)! Center stone is just over .5 at .51 (no real difference) with another .5 on the setting. Wedding band is right at .25 tcw. Love it so much! It so does not appear to be a “spec” on my hand.

BohemianGirl: I don’t usually like halos, but something about your ring is so stunning! Love the .5 Round Brilliant center with the round halo.
