    I think the diamond is a good size, the setting is just a little too chunky for me and takes away from the diamond. But that’s just my opinion. If you love it, that’s all that matters! 🙂

    I definitely don’t think it’s too small, regardless of where you live. It’s a beautiful ring!

    I think the size is perfect! I also agree with PP’s who said that the setting may obscure the diamond a bit.

    isabel49 :  Then why bother asking other’s opinions?

    I also think that the carat size is fine but that the chunky prongs square off the centre stone and overwhelm it when viewed top down. 

    Here is an image of a similar design with smaller prongs where the 0.5 centre stone has more definition.

    As fellow uk bees have said, that’s actually bigger than average uk diamond size. As 

    Drizzle :  had posted there are ‘different’ settings in your style that would show off your diamond better. But it sounds like the setting isn’t a worry for you, just the diamond size, in which case you’re bigger than average in the uk as I say.

    I’m a UK bee too and to me the size is perfect (I also have a 0.50ct equivalent stone). I agree with others who have said it’s the setting that’s probably making the stone look smaller than it is but I actually really love it.

    isabel49 :  Dear, stop listening to others and think about what you like. If you love your ring, then screw everyone else! I think it is beautiful and dont listen to anyone else.

    I like it.  I have a 0.5 carat and love it.  It’s the perfect size for me.  Personally, I’m not a huge fan of your setting, but that’s just because I’m a solitare fan.

    your ring is beautiful. I live in Toronto and often my 1.5 is dwarfed by some of the massive rings at my work place.

    For some people it can never be big enough
