Hi. Take a look at all the diamond ring threads. There will be a lot of them for you to look at. Happy shopping!

I suggest going to actual jewelry stores and trying on rings, it will give you a much better idea of what you like than pictures will. 

My ring size is also 3.75, and I thought I wanted at least a carat, but when I tried them on, I thought 1 ct looked too big, even fake (like costume jewelry), on my hand. Which really surprised me, because previously I had been 100% sure I wanted “1 carat”.

I then started looking for something between .5 and .75, the center stone I ended up with is .61 ct.

 

If you do still want 1 ct after trying on rings at the jewelry store, I suggest looking at diamonds slightly under. The “1.0” mark is a big price jump. If you get a .85-.9 diamond it will not really have difference in how it looks, but the price tag will be less.

 

This might be helpful too, it is a chart of “finger coverage” based on ring size and diamond size:

My finger is slightly bigger than yours. I have a 1.5c cushion cut and wear a size 4 1/2:

Sorry this is so large, I’m not sure how to make it smaller. The center stone is a 1.06 carat and I have a 5.25 finger. We just really liked the idea of turning the center stone 45 degrees. I’ve only seen 1 other bee with a princess cut in this orientation so far. Best of luck choosing a setting!

@mdserrano: I think the 1 ct would be great on your small finger!! I will show you my ring… the center stone is 1.03 and the band is .60 ct. (4 stones, .15 each) and I think it looks great! 1.25 might look great on me too… but that wasn’t in the budget, lol!

@mdserrano: Sorry, forgot to tell you I’m a 5.25 (but the ring is 5.5, it needs to be sized).

Not sure if you found something the other day, but here’s a photo of my ring. Size 3.25 finger, diamond is a .6-.7 (I can’t remember). It’s a round cut but the illusion setting makes it look bigger and more square.
