Oh no please don’t get disheartened! I am new to posting on the boards but I have been hanging around the ring board for ages – have a browse through former threads or search and you will find lots and lots of long threads where people have posted up their engagement ring pictures of all sizes including those below .5. 

Do it and you will see an absolutely astounding array of the most beautiful rings in so many wonderful and unique settings. It will cheer you up in a minute. It’s not the size of the ring that should be important it’s the man that gave it you and the dreams of the married life that are coming your way! Don’t let petty jealous people tell you ridiculous crap about your ring. YOU love it and yours is the ONLY opinion that counts when it comes to the ring that symbolises your love.

Mines .48 so just under a half. We are getting it reset *today* into a halo so it has a little more “oomph” but I love my stone (almost as much as the man who gave it to me!) Remember what it stands for! When I first came on the bee I had serious ring envy too – I got over it pretty fast though.

Yup, mine is reeeeally teeny tiny. It’s about 0.25 tcw. I love it because it’s so unique, and vintage. Sadly, most people who see it in real life tell me it’s not a real engagement ring, whatever that means :/ Too bad for them I guess!

Mine is actually .49!  I always refer to it as half, but to be honest, I simply forget that it’s not, lol.

Mine is around .45, not really sure because it’s a family heirloom (it was his grandmother’s engagement ring) and we haven’t had it appraised. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

@missmess:  That is SOO pretty! I love those style rings that look like they have marquise side stones. What era is it from do you know?

@frommisstomrs.:  WOW your ring is breathtaking!!

 

i’ve always found it crazy that people consider a full carat to the “the standard” from which you can upgrade or downgrade.  maybe it was because my mother’s ring was only a 1/3 carat, but i’ve always thought 1/2 carat diamonds to look plenty sizable.

I don’t get why it should be disheartening to hear someone has a bigger diamond than yourself to be honest. I love my ring and I wouldn’t love it any more or less if it was bigger or smaller. It’s a beautiful ring, and anyone who has made you feel inferior is ridiculous!

@JustLove25:  Thank you!! The side stones are actually 3pt rounds in marquis shaped settings, I love how delicate they make the whole thing look. I’m not totally sure about the era, but I’m going to guestimate it’s from sometime around the 50’s because this one is pretty much identical and it says it’s from the 50’s: http://www.turtleloveco.com/Diane_Vintage_Diamond_Engagement_Ring_circa_1950_p/vn-35021.5.htm
