@chloechloe:  is she on your facebook? Is that where you got the pic? If so I don’t think it would be odd to ask her. I, sure she’d be flattered. I asked someone their diamond size when Fiance and I were looking and she loved talking about her ring. I’ve had people I don’t know ask me on my Instagram and I never find it odd or offensive. Then again I am obsessed with rings!

@chloechloe:  looks about 1-1.5- ct. I’d be pretty pissed if someone posted my pic online without my permission…

I would be weirded out if anyone asked specifics about my ring other than where he got it.

Price, size, clarity, color….would all irk me. Even if it was my sister.

@thenewmrsmax:  I agree. I think the best thing to do is research on your own by trying on different sizes and styles. I think asking about price, size, the 4 Cs, etc. is like asking someone’s jean size! Laughing

I think it is closer to 2 carats

Looks similar to mine, in terms of coverage – which is 1.3 carats. I wear a size 6 ring.

Even though she seems to be a petite girl, her fingers appear to me to be size 7-8. I’m guessing her diamond is around 2ct.

I would be more worried that putting her photo on a public site is more offending that actually asking her what size her rock it.


“I’m looking around for engagement rings but I’m so confused about the different sizes of the rock, I really love your size and think it’s perfect, do you mind me asking what size that is?”

@mypinkshoes:  I agree.

Also, in the meantime, let me share a website with you that another bee sent me – I LOVE it and it’s so good for seeing finger coverage! http://www.diamdb.com

You can choose the stone shape that you want, then size, then you can change the ring size/metal/width as well as finger length to match your own!

@chloechloe:  Have you seen the charts that show actual carat size? Of course, it’s going to be dependent on how the stone is cut. I think it goes by ideal cut proportions. Print this out to the specifications, cut out the sizes you like and try it on your finger. A one carat is going to look different on a size 3 finger than a size 8 finger, so unless your hands are close to the same size, the comparison won’t be accurate.http://www.moissaniteco.com/download/Moissanite-Comparison.pdf

1.25ish? It depends on her ring size

That is not 1ct unless her fingers are a size 3.  Her hands look tiny though, like maybe a 4.5-5 and 1.5-1.75ct…  OP what size is your finger??  I find 2ct is the size that looks good on pretty much everyone.  It is never really too big or too small.

Her fingers look similiarly sized as mine – 6. Definitely not a 1 carat. Maybe 1.5 – 2.

Yeah, even if I posted my picture on a blog, I wouldn’t want to see it plastered somewhere that I didn’t know. It’s a bit creepy.
