I have large fingers (size 9.5), but small hands, and I find that I prefer smaller diamonds, and I’m just curious what it looks like in real life; please post any and all cuts, settings, etc. on size 8 or larger fingers with 1ish carat or smaller diamonds (including 3 stones, where each stone is one or less carat, and halos with 1 carat or smaller center stones).

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 moissaniteco.com, even for setting ideas. Maybe an awesome saphire or something similar will fit the bill.

Ring size 9, 1 carat center stone:

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.
