    Truth be told, no one ever asks. Apart from the occasional girl who’s gone wedding crazy herself, it’s not the kind of thing most adults discuss with one another.  I don’t think it’s so much a case of bad manners; more like, it’s a non-issue, like talking about shoe sizes.

    Not a big deal, we are fairy young & just starting out, so my small carat size doesn’t make anyone think too much of it.

    Mine is also a cluster so it looks bigger than what it is.

    On here it seems like the norm. But I have never had anyone in real life ask. If they did it wouldn’t bother me, esp. someone close. But even a stranger asking (which may catch me by surprise) I would still feel free to pass the information along.

    My stone is big (3 1/2 carats) and is a pink topaz. So getting asked what it is seems more likely to happen. But either way I wouldn’t mind. I do see how it could bother someone though.

    People always guess my carat size incorrectly,  they think its larger than it really is.  I don’t find it to be rude in the least, funny actually:)

    it kind of depends who they are and why they’re asking. I think it’s generally rude to ask, but I don’t care that much since I love my stone.

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  Thanks!!!  Which one? The solitare or halo? Your design helped me make the decision to go halo:)
