Yep, don’t worry bee, it freaked me out too! It’s definitely more the norm to have smaller rings in the UK – I only have one friend with a 1ct ring, and I thought it was huge! My OH and I have been looking at 0.3ct ovals and they suit my hand perfectly IMO.

To be honest, no idea what my E Rings carat weight is by itself.  The center stone is 0.33 carats and the total carat weight of the set is 1 carat.  It’s a ring I never would have picked for myself (Back in the day I was pushing for a 5x7mm radiant moissanite with a halo) but as soon as he put it on my finger it was perfect <3

Your ring is beautiful! I really love it.

I too think the forums here distort the ‘average’ engagement ring. I read yesterday that the average size is 0.53 carats. I’m not sure if that’s in the US, or worldwide. I had a 0.1 carat for years (I’m in Canada), and for our anniversary upgraded to just over a carat. I saw one post here the other day of someone saying they had upgraded from their tiny 1 carat to a decent 2.5 carat for their 1st anniversary. It’s hard to hear that a 1 carat stone is considered ‘tiny’!

There’s always going to be people with bigger or smaller stones – so enjoy what you have. It’s absolutely gorgeous – and that’s the important thing

I couldn’t believe the size of some of the rings when I first joined this forum, and was shocked again when threads for “tiny rings” were mainly between 0.75-1ct size!

Mine is 0.33ct total weight with a 0.23ct centre stone in platinum. Absolutely adore it. I was never much of a solitaire fan (for myself, still beautiful rings!) but this one just leaped out at me and my Fiance and we knew this was the one.

mishybear :  Thanks! I love it because it has such a gorgeous honey colour to it and sparkles like mad 🙂 I wished my ruby sparkled this way too but it has a different personality, but my ruby set is so easy to wear. It’s nice to have some options 🙂

Your ring is gorgeous, congrats!

This is mine which is 0.33ct total so I guess the middle is 0.2ct? No idea really as it doesn’t matter to me. I’d hate to have a huge diamond bumping into things all day!

While in theory I often adore the look of big stones, like previous Bees, I’d just be bothered by something sticking up high – and let’s face it, the bigger the stone, the higher it has to sit. Plus, we were on a budget. I originally wanted a 1/4 ct moissanite, but couldn’t find any that I like (it seems most people buy moissanite to go bigger than they could with diamonds…) and ended up with a 0.15 ct used diamond ring in white gold. I love it, I never feel out of place or too flashy with it. The only problem is that it doesn’t sit flush with most wedding ring types, but I have decided on one shaped like a bowtie with tiny diamonds in the bands to add some sparkle. Haven’t bought it yet, though – not yet married either.

My ring is 0.35 carats. Big erings aren’t the norm here either.
