What shape solitaire are you thinking of going with?  Shape makes a big difference in how big the diamond looks on your hand.

I think whether something looks nice or “big enough” is really in the eye of the beholder. It depends on what you’re used to seeing and how you feel about the stone size… I don’t think it really matters what size your finger is. I see you’re in the UK? I’ve heard that the average stone size is smaller there than in the US so 1/2ct would maybe seem average to large there?? Not really sure. Have fun shopping though!

Marquise cuts look larger due to their shape, I have a 1/5 carat which is obviously under 1/2 carat lol & on a 7 size finger.

I’ll show you a few pictures including on my finger. 🙂 (Oh and to answer your Q no I do not think 1/2 carat will look small on a 6.5 finger) But if you want it to look larger marquise and pear shapes look larger.

& Some on my hand, front view & side view.

@Anne b- what about something like this http://www.uniquecelticweddingrings.com/page/322738211

I am biased because I love this company but the quality is amazing. And I love side detail. Not sure if this your price range and this 1/2 carat. But it’s a unique ring and it’s very likely you won’t see it on anyone else’s finger:)

Also, if you don’t like my suggestion, still check out other Celtic jewelry sites (and no, you don’t have to be Irish:) because there SO many unique rings that are wfrom priced. And a change from more traditional, common styles. Good luck:)

What about a solitaire with side accents?  Or maybe a 3 stone ring?  That will make the diamond(s) look larger.

I have 0.45 carats on a size 10 finger. I think you’d be fine. Solitares are easier to take care of because you don’t need to worry about small stones getting loose.
