It totally depends on the setting you are looking at as well. I have a halo ring and it seems that the halo makes the center diamond look even larger than it is. People often ask or assume it is 2cts or larger.

My ring is a size 6.5 and the center diamond is 1.5 cts Hope that helps!

I’m just under a size 5.5 and my hands are fairly small.  My ring is about .33 of a carat (I think)?  It’s the perfect size for me.

 

Sorry I don’t have a better picture that shoes my whole hand.

Mine’s a sapphire, so it measures at .35 ct. But as a diamond it would measure at .25 ct. My finger is a size 8, thought it might help ?

I definitely think it depends on the setting. More importantly, though, I think it depends on your personal preference. My ring is 6 carats total. (5 carat emerald cut center stone, with two .5 side stones). I have a size 4 ring finger.

@marinewifetobe:  I would say the halo add’s a lot of ‘size’ to my stone, i think often people think my ring is bigger than it is because of the gem stone color and the diamonds? Not sure, i have had people ask me if its close to 1 ct, lol when its not even 1/2.
