My centre stone is 1/2 ctw and then the total is 3/4 ctw. I wear a size 6. I love it, although it does come down to personal preference πŸ™‚

Mine is a .70 center stone, at first I kind of felt the same way but honestly I love my ring, Fiance did an amazing job picking it out.. and now we share money anyways so I’m kind of glad he only spent 2000 on a ring cause now we actually have money to put towards more important things πŸ™‚

laura2979 :  Thank you πŸ™‚ It is a cushion cut. I’m not sure what the actual size of the halo diamonds is. I know there are 28 stones. The center stone is .75 carats and the total weight is 1.25 if that helps. It’s a Henri Daussi ring so the center stone is cut in a way that makes it appear larger.

Mine is .72 carat on a size 7 finger.  Also, the ring is from the 1940s and the band is from the 20s.  I think 3/4 carat is a great size!  Big enough to feel substantial, but also dainty at the same time (if that makes sense!)

I think .75 is huge and incredible personally but I also think maybe your partner took your dainty hand size into consideration. Looking at all the lovely rings posted in this board, it shows how huge they look on this size!

I also wear a size 5.5, and my solitaire was 0.56 carat with a 1.8mm band. Personally, I wanted a dainty ring that wouldn’t swallow my finger! But everyone has their own taste. Just don’t get caught up on comparing it to other rings. It’s not a competition! πŸ’•

c4rr134nn :  It’s beautiful! That’s actually my dream ring. 3/4 carat round solitaire on a plain band. I’m 90% sure I’ll be receiving it this month. My boyfriend has been asking a LOT of questions. Lol πŸ’πŸ˜

The next question will be what wedding band to pair with it.. I’m clueless! 😩

What did you think about your ring before you found the receipt? Was it big enough then? You say he was a jeweler before- sounds like he used his knowledge and got you quality over quantity within his budget.
