Mine is a 1/2 carat and I love it. It did get annoying with the saleslady trying to reassure me that we could upgrade the diamond later if I ever want to. I don’t think she understood I WANTED something this size.
Your ring is gorgeous!
I love this thread! Here is a photo of mine- .5 carat.
When my husband and I were dating, friends of ours got engaged, and he sneakily asked me about rings. I told him I definitely would want less than a carat, probably closer to a half, which is what he got. I love it! It is absolutely my style. However, I have felt a little self conscious at times in regards to others’ opinions. Strange that no one seems to think a person could actually prefer a small stone. I always wear dainty jewelry. Why would my style suddenly change when it came to this? Everyone seems to think bigger is better- something that I never realized. Big rings are pretty, just not my taste. Oh well! So many beautiful rings on this thread 😊
Congratulations on your engagement!
Mother-In-Law was very rude to say that. Everybody has different tastes, and what one person considers too small, another considers too big. The only appropriate response to seeing a woman’s engagement ring is “How lovely, congratulations!”
If anybody else makes that sort of comment, I would say, “That’s very rude. I’m embarassed for you.”
Your ring is gorgeous! Half carat is more than enough to me.

I love your ring! It’s beautiful and it looks perfect on your finger.
