For what it’s worth, here’s my .5 CTW on a size 5 finger. The halo adds to it, for sure, but it’s plenty big at fewer CTs than yours.zalesbluediamond

meganbesler:  I think that .71 ct on your size 4 finger will look plenty big enough. My marquise diamond is .71 ct and I’m a size 6.5 and I think it’s the perfect size to complement my bony fingers lol

Idk if this helps or not but princess cuts are very “deep” cut diamonds meaning, from up top they may seem a little smaller but from the side (which is the angle most people would see it anyway since no one is a bird to fly over you haha) princess cuts look big because they’re set so much higher than shallow diamond shapes (marquise, ovals, rounds, pears etc…). And honestly its much betetr it have a good quality 3/4ct diamond that sparkles like crazy than a dull big diamond with no luster. Plus, think of the meaning behind it, the love of your life is giving you that ring bc he thought it was perfect for you. That alone is worth a million times more than getting a big diamond just for the size. I’m sure once its on your finger you will LOVE it.

If it’s what he / y’all could afford, then it’s not too small; in the real world, finances limit our options, and that is just something we have to accept.  Don’t worry about “ideal finger coverage” – that’s just silliness.  If it’s a cut you like, and the price was right, and the man is right, then the ring is right.

Mine is .75 and I am a size 6.5.  With your little fingers it will look way big I think it will be beautiful especially if you are going for the delicate look like you said.    What kind of setting are you getting? I got a really thin band 1.5’m and I think it makes the diamond stand out more- just something to consider

Here’s my 0.7 on size 4 finger. I think the size suits my finger well.

meganbesler:  I have a .31 ct princess cut on my size 4 finger, and I never feel it’s too small, so I think your ring will be plenty big and beautiful!!

Mine’s somewhere between .7 and .75 carats on a size 6 finger. It’s a old mine cut, though, so it appears smaller than a more modern cut diamond of the same weight would. On a size 6 finger, you can expect a .75 carat to cover about 1/3 of your finger.
