that looks right, the bezel makes it look bigger than it is! lovely ring.

Mine faces up small for its size. for reference the stone in my wedding band is a .14

Hard to tell but I would have guessed based on those pictures it was closer to 1.25 ct.  Just my opinion.

Looks about right, though I agree the bezel makes it look slightly bigger. Mine is slightly over a carat, but it faces up smaller than my friends’ who have rounds or princesses.

@LilMsMicro:  I looked at it and guessed it to be 1ct, so it seems to be normal sized to me. However, I did have to think about how the bezel affected its appearance.

Great ring, btw!

I don’t know the carat weight of mine, so I’d be interested to hear what the guesses are 🙂  Size 6.5 finger.

@LilMsMicro:  I’d say it appears  to be a ct.

I love your ring! I think the setting does make it look a little bigger. Mine is just over 1 carat but it’s a cushion so it looks slightly smaller than a round 1 carat bi love it though!

@LilMsMicro:  Oh, I forgot to say that I think yours looks bigger than a carat!

@sarahbabs:  I’d guess just shy of a carat, maybe .85 or something. Here’s my 1.1 carat (e ring, band is 1.4 with 11 smaller stones). I’m also a 6.5 rin size.

@LilMsMicro:  I guessed that your ring was at minimum 1.5 carats. So–there goes my assumption that a bezel setting reduces the size of it in looks.

I think they look different depending on the size of peoples fingers. Mine is cut correctly but looks small because I have a size 8 finger…

@LilMsMicro:  I think we have the same ring..

Mine is 1 carat, but people think it’s a lot bigger because of the setting.

@LilMsMicro:  I would have guessed 1.25-1.5 the bezel does make it appear larger. I am starting to like bezels more and more after seeing them on this site.
