I think .5-1 carat is a nice, large and tasteful size personally.

beefabulous:  everything is bigger in the US! I’d agree with PPs who said that 0.5-1 seems about average here. I think it’s silly to worry about whether your ring is “big enough” compared to others. If it’s the right size for you, it’s perfect.

I consider 1C big and most of my friends have 0.5 as they are getting engaged early 20s but I love my .80 c ring but diamond shrinkage is a real problem! Wishing I had 1 c since it seems smaller when you get used to it being on your finger

I’d say 1 ct or bigger. It’s all perspective though, I’m the first in my friendship group to get married and I have 0.1 ct so most rings look bug to me. Then again, my personal taste is not blingy, so I’m probably the wrong person to ask!
