If your worried about the size of the stone looking small and your not set on a solitaire, you’ve got tons of wiggle room! Cluster rings are gorgeous, antique settings are usually bigger and more intricate, 3 or even 5 stone rings will give you a more substantial look! If you’re willing to look outside of diamonds, check out, even for setting ideas. Maybe an awesome saphire or something similar will fit the bill.

Happy window-shopping!

I wear a size 7.5-8. My ering is a custom desgined three-stone set in a yellow gold twisted pave band. The center is a .75 carat lazare and the sides are each .5 carats. The great thing about three-stone or halo style rings is even with smaller diamonds they can “fill out” larger hands. I was afraid my hand would dwarf a smaller diamond. Also, I have noticed that higher quality diamonds (excellecnt cut and color) can make the stones look bigger as they reflect more light. My friend has a 1 carat poorly cut solitaire and our diamonds looked the same size. She was shocked when I told her it was a .75. We held them up and the difference was barely noticable.

This is my ring not sure on carat rating. I have the UK equivalent Size O finger which is kinda big as I have large knuckles!I love the dainty look of it 🙂

.68 carat center stone (princess cut) with an extra .70 carats in the band, 14k rose gold on an 8.5 finger! There is a finger sprint on the center stone that smudged it a little.
