Mine is around 1/3 ct, though we’re not absolutely sure. It was his great-grandmother’s ring. Before he knew that this one was left to him (his mom had it, and didn’t tell him) we discussed a colored stone. I didn’t want him to spend a lot of money that he didn’t have on a diamond,plus I wasn’t ever a huge diamond person. I absolutely adore mine. It’s not so huge that I feel someone will try to steal it, plus it’s so sparkly and beautiful. That, and the fact that his mom gave it to him for me means they approve of me, and he finds me to be important enough to give the ring that an important ancestor wore.

Just wanted to tell you ladies your rings are gorgeous!!! I’m so glad you are all happy with small diamonds and don’t get envious of others who have larger stones. But I seriously love this thread! That’s all I wanted to say. I almost ended up with a .50 carat ring before I found the one I have now; I would post but it’s 1 cttw (.51 center) and I want to keep this thread respectful of small, dainty, and beautiful rings.

Im kind of cheating this was my engagement ring 0.23 centre, it was so pretty, but i recently had it upgraded to 0.54c centre after hubby had bought a second hand ring v cheap with the bigger diamond but did not want me having a bigger diamond on my right hand so we swapped the stones, but i love seeing all your rings as i still have the diamond from ths one and will eventually get it made into a new ring for anniversary or baby.

Mine is 1/3 “promise ring” according to Zales but it’s what I wanted for my engagement ring and I love it.  I am currently looking for my “bridal set” which will be a slight upgrade but still without our budget range.

I’m a waiting bee but had to peek on the wedding boards! OP, your ring is EXACTLY what my dream ring would be! I’m not picky anymore though lol I’ve been waiting for years, I’m now at the point where I’d take a plastic ring out of a crackerjack box as long as it exists!

All your rings are SO PRETTY!!
