    My center is a 0.43ct champagne diamond. I’m turning 31 in two weeks and have had my ring for a year. 

    It’s an interesting thought that older (30+) might have more carats since we might have more finance stability. But I also think priorities are different when you are around 30. My husband and I have everything going well for us. We own our own business, have lots of savings, own our own house, no loans etc. We could definitely afford a big rock for my finger, but we priorities other things. When I was 20-25 I would probably LOVE for my boyfriend to empty his bank account to buy me a huge diamond. But now, I would actually be disappointed if my (now) husband would spend our savings on jewellery. Just because you can afford something, doesn’t mean you need to spend it. We (we had joint finances several years before getting engaged) paid about 34 000 SEK ($4000) for my set which was about $3000 more than I originally had in mind, lol.

    Lovely rings ladies! I am amazed how many ladies get engaged/married so young in the other thread. In my twenties I was concerned with school, getting a career, traveling ,volunteering and buying a home. I was setting my life up! Lol not knocking it …I am just surprised. I am glad I dated and found the one later in life. Here is my ring ring! ☺️

    Oh and my center is 1.75 cts tw is 2.83.

    Reading my post I realised that I might have come across as judgemental and that was NOT my intention! English is not my native language and I sometimes lack the “touch” to avoid sounding harsh 😀 If a man wans to spend a lot on an e-ring I don’t judge. I just wanted to add to the whole ring/carat thing that couples in their thirties might have other priorities than 20-something couples, even if they have more money.

    Not my engagement ring, so I’m not sure it still counts. But this is my “post-30” ring (15th anniversary gift … I was 45 & DH was 46)

    It has a .9 center, around 2.4 TCW.

    I got engaged at 30 (FI had just turned 31)! I have a .54 carat G SI1 center stone and .5 ct of pave in the halo/band. I never want to upgrade. I picked my ring out and it’s perfect for me.

    I was married a while ago with a smaller ring, but DH upgraded it. I am now… over 30! It’s a 1.71 ct GIA ex/ex/ex, I colour, SI1 and rates under 2 on the HCA. It is set in an 18K YG cathedral setting.
