There’s NO WAY a 1ct ring could be small. If that’s small, my 0.36ct e-ring is teensy-weensy. Hell, my wedding band and e-ring put together is still under 0.50ct, so DH has some grovelling to do, lol.

@Kissme0408:  There you go…. I agree with you, dainty probalby wasnt a compliment because our society has this “GO BIG OR GO HOME” mentality.  I think your ring is absolutey beautiful and it fits your hands very well and I bet it sparkles like crazy….. Where your beautiful ring with pride and ignore, “ignorance on iceskates”.

As PPs said,

– There is no size diamond that’s “too small”

– Dainty doesn’t mean small. and certainly not “too small”. Its a compliment tmeans something delicate, elegant, feminine… like a dancer. The opposite would be clunky, awkward, unrefined, overbearing… like an orc.

I don’t think she mean small, like other pp said, she may mean delicate. 

That’s exactly why I choose not to comment on others engagement ring, not even close friends or family Any comment may lead to negative feeling

I’ve had a friend call my ring dainty, and it’s a 1.11 center stone on a thin band. I think she said it because the setting is delicate/thin with microprong set diamonds…but, who knows. It may have been said in a negative way…but what difference does it ultimately make?

@gelaine22:  we can look up the definition but does the person who made the statement actually know what it means?

@creeative1:  My point was why assume that she meant something negative? I NEVER mean anything negative with the word dainty. I wouldnt want my ring to be seen as bulky or huge…

But to each his/her own. I still dont need others to tell me if my ring is big or small or nice or not. As long as you love your ring nothing else should matter.  

Also, I am not the only one that is assuming she didnt mean it negatively.
