No I think it’s a great size. My fingers are 6.5 to 7 and a carat to 1.5 carats depending on the stone is my sweet spot range for jewellery on my own hands. I drool over those 2 or bigger carat stones that other people have too but when I try them on me it doesn’t look as nice 🙁 probably better for my husbands wallet that way anyway lmao.

This is a 1 carat center stone on my size 6.25 finger. With the halo I feel like it is huge, and personally wouldn’t want it any larger.

I think 1 carat is a great size on a size 4 finger. This is my .96 round on a size 6.5 finger I have short stubby fingers. I think my ring is a good size. Keep in mind the 3cs as well,  cut an clarity play a big part in how big a diamond will appear.  A well cut diamond will showcase better an appear larger then a diamond of the same size. I love my ring an would never go bigger. I say go with what makes you happy. An get the best cut an clarity you can  on your budget.

I wear a size 6.25 and I have a 1.1 carat round brilliant with .3 pavé on the band. I think it’s very pretty and classic. I certainly wouldn’t mind a bigger center stone lol, but my fiancée chose this all by himself and I wouldn’t change a thing because it’s what he picked for me 🙂

Well, I really hope 1 carat isn’t too small because my center stone is .87 (the sides are about .33 each). I’m a size 4, for reference:

natashagill :  thank you so much! I love it too! I really don’t know the band width. I could measure it. It’s defi not too dainty or delicate. It’s 8 Stones and .3 carats so whatever width that might work out to!
