Yours is stunning!! Here is mine, I love mine too, we found it in the first store we looked, but continued to look at like 10 more stores just in case, but nothing we saw was as perfect so we drove 2 hours back to the store where we found “the one” πŸ˜€

my hand is really small (sz 4.25), so i never wanted anything big(this already looks huge)..instead, we were able to buy an AWESOME quality diamond πŸ™‚ my boss likes to say i need to buy sunglasses for the office because its so sparkly.

I apologize that this is a smidge out of focus! I never got around to taking better pictures because, well, I’m way too busy! 

Anyway, I have small but fat fingers (seriously, they’re kind of, er, stubby) that are a size 4.5, and our jeweler, who is my FSIL’s Father-In-Law, recommended a one stone ring because anything else would have wrapped around. I love my ring!

I have small fingers and little hands so a big honkin’ diamond would look gaudy and horrible on me. We went with my great-grandmother’s heirloom stone (which is I think .85 carats or something like that) with small side stones and a split shank engraved band. These pics kind of suck btw because I can’t seem to get a good ring shot.

It depends on what you call dainty! I love my ring but I’m not sure I’d consider it “dainty” πŸ˜‰

Mine is a .25 in the centre, with another 0.25 on each side with the small stones, and then .07 of a carat in the channel-set stones down the sides. I have tiny fingers (4.75) and tiny hands, so anything larger would look ridiculous.

Is it just me, or all these rings rather large? And gorgeous πŸ™‚

@littleaudrey- I think of dainty referring more to the setting, like a thin band or intricate scroll work, not necessarily the size of the diamond…

I like to think mine is dainty πŸ™‚

I think my setting is quite dainty… and I love the way it looks on my size 4 finger.  I can’t imagine wearing a huge/elaborate setting on my little finger. 

@trailmix, mine looks similar (but not exactly the same) to yours!  πŸ™‚

do any of you know what type of wedding band youre getting yet? i’m getting a very very thin diamond 1/2 eternity band..it’s only 1.8mm thick! i originally thought about getting one on each side, but it looked too bulky on my hand and i knew i wouldn’t wear the 2nd band. guess i’ll be having a dainty wedding band too! πŸ™‚

I believe mine is dainty! Definition: delicate, small, and pretty! I have posted this before, but it’s so fun to post on these threads!
