Mine is 0.9 ct centre, but it’s a split shank!

Here is my .50 carat , split shank e-ring. My finger is about a 6.5 but my e-ring is a size 7 and my wedding band a 6.75  but my fingers tend to swell throughout the day and I hate right rings. 

One picture is close up and the second is further away so you can get a better idea of the actual size. my ring is set pretty low so I think that makes it appear smaller too.

@tarapaul2016:  Don’t go to Kay’s…I’d avoid a franchise jewelry store at all costs, you get so much less for your $$! What specs were you looking for exactly and what was your budget with the stone/setting? Can you just get a solitaire setting for now and upgrade to a split shank w/pave after? With a round you could probably get away with an H color and I would try to get VS2 clarity. Here’s a .75 true hearts/arrows, H, VS2

Here’s a G, VS2 excellent cut for around $2,300

I would also try to set the stone elsewhere, and just order it loose from James Allen. Their 14k gold settings are literally the same price as my platinum setting-that’s outrageous. 

Good luck and don’t give up hope! IDK if possible, but if you’re able to go to NYC our jeweler there is phenomenal (not a grimey diamond district place).

@kimmo416:  Thank you! I think your ring is gorgeous too! i love your side stones . I went from not really seeing too many rings like mine, to two ring twins in one afternoon. How cool. Any ideas on what you are going to do for a band? I really like the split shank sides, they seem so feminine to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

@tarapaul2016:  I am a size 6 and center diamond is .75. Total ct is 1.5. Are you planning on getting a solid split shank band or diamonds on the band as well? I think smaller center diamonds look great on split shanks. Your ring will be beautiful!

Loving all of these split shanks, ladies!
