A carat? Just over?

ETA: also, doesn’t look small at all!

I’d say it’s around 1.25 ct.

Around 1ct? Maybe a tiny bit below or above, 0.9-1.05 or so

@g456:  0.9 ct? Definitely doesn’t look small – it suits you really nicely.

@g456:  I’m terrible at guessing stone sizes. I would guess your center stone to be somewhere from 1.25 to 1.5ct.

I don’t think your ring or stone looks small by any means. I think it is a gorgeous stone and setting. It looks really well proportioned for your hand and beautiful on your finger.

It looks about like the size of a chocolate chip maybe? Or smaller than a pencil eraser?

@g456:  I had a 1.24 ct round diamond on a size 6 finger and thought it looked similar!

I don’t think it looks small on your finger, but it does look small for a 1.23ct diamond in the pics, but it is hard to tell size in photos.  I would have guessed it was closer to 1ct (about 6.5mm).  A well cut 1.23ct round should be around 6.9mm.  If it faces up significantly small than that (the info should be on the lab report or you can measure it), it may be cut deep, which is a common technique used by cutters to retain carat weight at the expense of spread (carat weight has a greater impact on price over spread).  The issue with deep cut diamonds (aside from the possible decrease in performance of the diamond) is the buyer pays for a 1.23ct stone that faces up small, whereas a smaller, well cut stone could generally be had at a lower price point.  It does suit your finger nicely! Congrats!
