    Sure. Not everyday. I would want an oval or cushion cut. I have round diamond now and can’t imagine wearing a bigger round than I have now. A stone to take up more length would look nice though.

    No way! My finger is a size 4 (really more of a 3.75) and that would just look so overwhelming on my hand. I just don’t think that would be flattering on me. I think the most I could handle would be maybe 2ct. Really though I’d probably cut off at around 1.5. Right now my diamond is just over 1ct.

    I would want an oval or cushion cut colourless diamond if price was no object.  3 carats would be my ideal.

    I have a 1.8 carat center stone and I think that’s the biggest I would ever get, as I have tiny fingers- my ring is already a little much so that would be crazy!

    @ladyamalthea  I wouldn’t. My finger is a size 5 and I have tiny hands. It would look cartoonish on me. Big stones aren’t really my style anyway. I said under 1 or 1-2, but I think I would go with 1 ct center stone as my max.

    I currently have a round brilliant, I’m not sure of the exact carat weight but its a bit over 2.

    If I wasn’t working in my current job, I’d get a 3 ct. I have large hands and didn’t think I’d be comfortable wearing over 2 but I see 3 cts and think yeah, I could get down with that..

    @ladyamalthea  I have a two carat that I prefer aesthetically on my large fingers, but I don’t think I’d go larger. I LOVE my ring but sometimes with putting my hands in my pockets and sleeping with it on it gets in the way a little lol

    So I imagine a 3 ct would only be in the way MORE although I do love the look!

    @ladyamalthea  I’d always go with diamond, personally, and I’d go with under 1ct (0.75ct max for a solitaire; 0.65ct max as a centre stone in a halo/similar) unless it was a cocktail ring in which case I might go up to 2ct for fun.

    I would go as big as possible! I’ve never tried on anything huge, but I always admire it on other people. I have a small finger too, but please believe, my fingers are strong! I’m sure they can handle it!

    That’s kinda what’s happening for me!!! My BF plans to propose with his grandmothers 2.1 carat diamond solitaire. I have a size 4 finger. Without the ring we would have like a 3k ring budget! I feel so lucky! I love big stones and would never be able to afford one on my own

    I’d get one, probably oval or elongated cushion, but I wouldn’t wear it daily.

    Sometimes I catch clients staring at my small ring (I work at a pro bono legal aid clinic currently) and I feel really terrible, so I would absolutely not want anything that’s more eye catching.

    I really like the way my ring looks on me. It’s a 1.25 center with a chunky halo. The width across my halo is 10mm, which if a round diamond were 10mm wide it would be approximately 3.5 carats. So I think I would be comfortable with a 3 carat stone as long as it was in a low setting.

    However my sweet spot is around 1.75-2.25 and if I had to replace my current ring I’d probably get another ring that had a halo of canary diamonds and a 2 carat OEC diamond.

    @ladyamalthea  I’d be making my way downtown and buying me a huge ass asscher! 
    I’d rock a 3ct, or a 4ct, I don’t know if I would actually be comfortable with anything bigger, I mean that literally, I have small hands and chubby fingers, it may be uncomfortable to wear anything larger!

    I’d get a diamond, as you said, it goes with everything and sparkles!

    @ladyamalthea  I’d rock something proportional to my hands. No more than 1ct as I’m so small!
