I am quite happy with my ring (1.5 carats). If price were not an issue, the largest would be 2 carats, but even then I’m not sure I’d go for it. For my main job, I don’t wear my engagement ring probably half of the time any way (I do my wedding band for sure).

I recently purchased a 2ct blue sapphire that sparkles like no-one’s business…if only my fiance had let me pick my engagement ring! I like larger coloured stones, but larger colourless stones just look silly and cartoonish to me.
I’m planning to set the sapph in a delicate diamond halo 🙂

No way, that is too gaudy for my taste. I would get a 1.5ct radiant!! To me that would be perfect on my size 6 finger!

Ack, can’t see where to edit my post…I wear a size 5.5 🙂 a 2ct sapph is 7mm (smaller than 2ct diamond, it’s denser) and that’s the biggest I’d go

I would actually get a smaller centre stone than I have now (1.5ct radiant). I just feel like it’s too big for my 6.25 finger and I would probably go for a 1ct or 1.25ct.

I think my future engagement ring will probably be around 0.5 carats. The maximum size I would want would be a 1 to 1.5 carat. To me quality is far far more important that quantity.

My jewellry tastes tend to run either minimalist or vulgarly large. I love my ring and wouldn’t go any bigger as even a 0.5ct was starting to looked gawky and garish on me. That being said, I’m currently shopping for a vulgarly large RHR in either a sapphire or emerald. I don’t do rings often but if I’m going to – you may as well know it was there in both colour and size :P. As for diamonds, if money was no object I’d pick a brooch, earrings or even a tiara over a ring. I’m just not that into large colourless stone rings for special occasions.
