The ring I am concidering getting is 3.4 carats in a yellow sapphire stone. I have no concept of this size, but it sounds really big… It’s a oval cut, does anyone have any pictures or a way that I could get a better concept of this size?

Can you get on a jewelers site and look?. My engagement ring is .75 carats and is a pretty good size for me! lol

Yes, it’s far too big… you should send it to me. 😉
I’m sure you know this already, but as a reminder, diamonds and sapphires have different densities and a 3.4 carat diamond will not be the same size as a 3.4 carat sapphire. You should ask the jeweler for the measurements of the surface to get an idea of how big it will be!
Also, I have a .91 carat oval (diamond)… it actually seems quite large; I think I would find 3.4 carats too large on my finger, but it depends on the setting and your tastes, of course. 🙂

Geeze louise! My SO’s diamond he is planning to use is a little over 3 carats (it’s his grandmothers diamond) And it is huge!!! I’m pretty sure with a sapphire it’s going to be even BIGGER!

haha well thankyou! The jewler i’m dealing with has actually given me an option between the 3.4 and a 1.2! Do any of you have pictures of a 1.2 carat sized ring?

I have a total of .84 and I think it is a perfect size. I thought a 1 carat was too big for me. I think 3.4 carats is a lot of stone! But it depends on what you like!

I just googled this. This one is at 3 carats. Not sure if it helps you get an idea since it’s not next to anything for comparison.

i second spaniel’s comment – sapphires are different than diamonds.
but honestly thats huge – iwould have to see it on your finger to determine though since different stone sizes and different finger sizes make a difference if something is big or not.
if you like it go for it because its YOUR ring and you have to like it, but i dunno how much i would wear a stone like that – i live in a big city and that just screams “mug me”! in some of the places i have to go!

My diamond is 1.77….maybe that will help give you an idea! Sorry the pic stinks…it was taken on my blackberry and I was wearing black so everything looks dark!

to be honest a carat was far too large for my hand, i have a .8 diamond (a little under a carat) 3.4 is enormous, but if thats what u want, go for it, girl!

This one is at 1.2 carats

Oh, and I don’t think a stone can be too big! I LOVE “jewels” and would wear 3.4 carat in a heartbeat if we could afford it! 🙂

This site has charts that describes the general size and weight of different gems in each cut. That may not do much to give you a visual, but it could point you in the direction of more reference pictures. 🙂

I have a 1.32 sapphire, and I think it is really big. If I had a 3, I don’t think I would like it because it would be huge for my hand. I suggest you go to a jeweler and try different sizes and shapes on, so you know what you like.
