So, I’m thinking about proposing to my girlfriend of 2+ years in February (her birth month and I’ll have my tax return by then) and I’ve been shopping around for a ring. I found one that I absolutely LOVE but I can’t find any pictures of it actually on a hand to give me an idea of scale.
Here are some pictures of the ring itself:
I don’t know what carat the above one is, but they offer a .5 carat, a .75, and a 1 carat ring and I’m not sure which would be best suited to her hand. She’s a 5.25 and doesn’t like huge jewelry, so I’m leaning towards the .5, but I’m concerned that it will be too small/look odd.
Below is a picture of our hands (we got promise-type rings for our second anniversary), for reference. Hers is on the right. The rings in the picture are both size 6 (we had them resized after the pic was taken) and the diamonds have a tcw of .25, I think.
Any thoughts? Does anybody have the ring in question and would be willing to share a picture?

How big are the ones in the promise rings? I have seen a few rings that look like yours posted. The twig styled ones. I would personally like the carat size but if your worried about .5 looking too small get the .75. There are plenty of bees that have .5 on there finger and it looks fine. Here’s a chart with finger coverage for a RBC.

Ah, I’d love to see this ring IRL. It’s my dream ring and I’m obsessed with it. I showed it to my SO but there’s no way he got it. I told him to keep the ring under 2000 because we’re buying a house. If you end up getting it don’t forget to post pics 🙂
I think a half carat would be ok. I actually have to same size finger as your girlfriend and I think a .5 to .75 looks awesome. I might be a little more into flashier rings but I think .75 looks a wee bit better, but seriously it’s personal preference!

That ring’s a beauty. Your finger looks like it is about a size six from how the ring in the pic fits you, so not that much bigger than hers. If I were you I would go to a local jewelry shop and tell them you are looking at stone sizes, and see how each size looks on your finger to get an idea.

Bumping because I’m still looking for IRL pics of this ring, especially with a .5 carat stone.
Girlfriend definitely wants around half a carat, but I’m not sure if that would look odd with this setting, as the band looks a little thicker.
