    Girl my stone is a 5.75mm round and I have a size 8.5 ring.  If you like the finger coverage on me, I think you’ll be happy.  Beautiful stone!

    noninferiorasecutus :  here is a tool to help visualize!×5.75/

    Also, I just have to say, make sure you love the color of your sapphire in lots of different lights as they tend to be shifty.  If you are not sure about this stone, keep looking and the right one will pop up!

    thank you for the ring love!  The stone will darken a little bit when set.  Below is a picture of mine before it was set so you can get an idea.  No filters on any pictures, sapphires are just chameleons 😝

    Beautiful stone and setting you picked. Is the setting from James Allen? I’m not sure they set stones that are not from them, but I could be mixing them up with a different online retailer.

    unicornwolf :  nope, it’s natural.  AGL Certified heat only.  The inclusions aren’t visible by the naked eye and the cutter did an amazing job masking it by his faceting.  You don’t want to know how many sapphires I looked at before I finally contacted Roger Dery and had him send me some in my budget.  🤣

    noninferiorasecutus :  hi bee just keep in mind sapphires face up a lot smaller then the average carat so you said it’s a .87 it will most likely look like a .50 like a round diamond would look. I would up the size if I were choosing a sapphire. You really can’t compare diamonds and sapphires when it comes to the stone facing up , although they may have the same carat weight the visual affect is extremely different. my jeweler told me this and just thought this would be helpful information and would help you decide to put it in that setting. I’m going to be the unpopular vote and say go bigger

    I think it will look beautiful. 

    Can you go to the jeweler near you and try on similar shape of rings with similar sized stones (just make sure to check the size of stones in mm not carats, as different stones of the same carats have different size in mm). Then see if you like the look, at least it will give you some approximation. 

    And as othet PP mentioned. Make sure you love the stone itself, color, shape, general feeling it gives you.
