My bf and I have been together for 10 years and we’re having a look at rings and designing it together :)!
I need some help from you ladies. Could you please post your (roughly) 0.5 carat solitaires on a 4.5-5 finger and also include the band width.
I love the Lauren Conrad style engagement ring (and also Natalie Marie signature solitaire style) on a <2mm band but am having trouble finding that style with a smaller size carat!
Also, do you ladies think a 6 prong low setting is risky with a smaller carat size as there’s more metal and would block out more light than a 4 prong?
Thank you and all opinions welcome pls!!

Uhn. I always want to participate when I see someone asking for pictures of my ring size, but my ring is neither a solitaire or .5 ct, blah. My comment will bump your post up though and hopefully you get the pics ypu are looking for ☺

I am a size 5 with a solitaire, it’s a 1ct though so a bit bigger than what you’re after. I’ll post anyway.
I also found some half carat or similar solitaires in this thread:
I’ll consolidate them into this post for you!
Here is mine: Size 5, 1ct, 1.5mm band:
melody910101‘s 0.64ct with 6 prongs:
alysiaandpetter‘s 0.5ct pear solitaire, 4.75 ring size

Mine is 0.42 and size 4-4.5. I think the band is 1.5mm or 2mm at the most (I know I didnt want more than 2mm)

thank you that’s so helpful to get an idea of size and exactly the style I love! What setting did you go with, and do you find it sits quite high?

I didnt want anything too high either and this is perfect for me. I wanted some detail incorporated but couldnt work out how. This is not exactly what I had in mind (though I didnt really have any clear idea in mind!!) but when I saw it in store it was as close to perfect and I teared up so took that as a sign lol. I am pretty ure I have some pics on pinterest of similar settings if this is the kind you like 🙂

My ring is a .054 solitaire on a 4.5 finger. Sorry, I don’t know the width of my band. The first photo is the engagement ring alone, and the other two is with my wedding band. Married on May 22, 2017! 🙂
