    I have size 9 and wear a .5ct. It’s lovely. Sometimes I think we get too caught up in our insecurities. I think I have man hands. No ring is going to change that

    carat size is not the important factor here. you need to think about stone setting and band width. 
    I am 186cm tall and tried on many engagement rings. the solitaire style did not suit as large diamond looked lost.

    2 carat center, size nine finger, with a small halo. 🙂

              I wear a size 11 and my ring is 4ct. I would recommend anything between 3-4cts. Rings generally look bigger in photos so don’t hesitate to go with a little bigger than what you inital think to get. Another alternative is to get a ring with a halo or double halo!

    My ring size is 10.5 and this is a 7mm (1.8 equivalent) cushion cut moissanite. I ordered an 8mm stone, then last minute changed it to a 7mm. I’m so happy I did because sometimes I feel like this stone is too big! I’m very happy with it, but every once in a while I think I should have gone a bit smaller.

    I am a pianist so I’ve always had bigger hands than all of my friends lol 😂 and luckily my Fiancé got me a decent sized ring. I asked for more of the graduated band setting. I thought a very thin band wouldn’t work for me. 

    Ring finger size : 8.5?? Might be 8.25. 

    Carat : 1.65

    Just thought I would add this here. Pretty much all of my fingers (except for my pinkies) are between a 9.5/10. I have this ring on my right hand middle finger (which is a size 10) and it’s a 4-5 ct DEW. If you took away the druzy side stones, I’d have between 55-60% finger coverage with the center stone. Hope that helps!

    Ive got chubby fingers on short hands. My ring finger is only 2.5″ but my ring size is 9.5. I have a .5-.6 carat bezel set solitare and I honestly love it. The bezel setting definitely adds “bulk” to the setting of the ring. That being said, I’m not a bling type of girl at all so I never was looking for something bigger than this.
