Mine is 0.64ct and only 1 other person I know with a bigger stone is 0.75ct ( a girl at work) 

Most people here in my area have diamond cluster, gemstone cluster or solitaire between. 0.25 to 0.50

OP your rings are lovely

 

Here is mine

:  

my 1/2 carat princess centre. I also have a 1.5carat moissanite too.

I see a huge variation of size where I live! I don’t think 1/2 carats are small though!

aimerxoxo :  I love the swirly design in your ring! I would say that average where I live would be between .1ct and .25ct, .5ct would be considered big, at least among my circle. My ring is about 1/4ct with a .2 center and I wouldn’t want it any bigger, it’s incredibly low set and I’ve still managed to bump in on things a few times and give myself mini heart attacks. My ring size is 4.5 for reference.

1ct or less seems to be the most common around me.

 

Here is my 0.5ct

In my area I’d say anything under a carat is pretty common. Here’s my half carat.

I’m in a big midwest city. I’ve seen it all over the place. The more  affluent areas have 1CT and above. The more suburn are one CT and lower. Then middle class are ALL over the place. 

We are in the suburn area in the “richer” county, I have a 1ct moissanate.

I forgot to mention. I think my stone is a little smaller than average here. It seems like average might be more like .75 or 1 carat.

My ring is a half carat and I’d say that’s a fairly common size where I live. Here are some pics!
