    @agirlwithdreams7: Hello date twin!!! =)

    I love bling, and wanted 2 bands as well, but ended up with just 1 because my finger felt too constricted with that many rings on.

    I wouldn’t change the stone mostly because then it wouldn’t be the ring he proposed to you with anymore. I’m a sucker for sentimental value.

    I think it’s mostly about how the ring is set. When we were looking at E rings I tried on some really beautiful 1.5 ct and above rings that were set in a really beautiful way. I also tried on some much smaller ct rings that just looked really strange on my hand because the setting had a really high profile.

    I never wanted a very big diamond since I’m a violist and I need my fingers to not be too fancy haha. I’m easily distracted. Anyway, I ended up with a really lovely .75 ct ring and it is perfect.

    That is such a hard question to answer! I have a 1.1ct cushion and I went into a jewelry store because I was thinking about changing my blingy set to a plain solitaire. The lady asked if I wanted to down grade because she thought the 1.1ct looked too large on my finger!! I am a 5.25 but I have tiiiiiiiinnnnnyyyy hands. So its different for everyone, and I do think it depends where you live as to what is the average size.

    All of my friends and family think that my 1.1ct is huge, but to me 1.5 – 2 ct is huge.

    My center stone is a carat, and that’s big to me! My total weight is 1.5 (see avatar.) That said, I voted 1-1.5 because to me 1.5 is really big. It would not be my taste to go larger though my fiance was looking at 2 carat, I talked him out of that because I would be afraid to wear it around on an every day basis. My finger is a size 6 (though if I lose much more weight it will end up being a 5.5)

    @EffieTrinket: WOW what a bitch! hilarious though, the joke’s on her!

    to answer the question, I consider anything over .7 too big on me. I’ve tried on a bunch of sizes, but the bigger ones just don’t look good imo. I have small fingers and prefer an accessory rather than a statement. still fascinated by other people’s big shinies, but not for me!

    anyway, according to the following chart, the size I like on MY finger is equivalent coverage to a 1ct on a size 6 finger. imagine getting a rock that covers over 100% of your finger! haha

    Looking at the photo of your ring 1ct is really big, any bigger and it will be to large for your finger.

    Mind you Im from NZ anything over .5 is really large and over 1ct is unheard off, mind you we dont have moissonite here, so it would have to be a diamond.

    When i was trying rings on i tried from .5ct  right up to 1.5ct,  and to me,  anything above 1ct  looked too big on my fingers. 

    Yes i think 1ct is big enough……for me at least.

    this is my 1ct on a 6.5 finger
