I am a size 7, and for me i’d say 3-4. So, I would say 4-5 for you. And that would be the ULTIMATE SIZE. I Love 0.10 carat diamonds aswell 🙂

chelsey0707 :  There’s no perfect size.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.   Here’s what the different carat size in different shapes look like on a size 6.5, so maybe a little smaller on a 7.5 finger.

I am an 8.5 and my center stone is between 2 and 2.5 carats. I think in total, my ring is right under 3 carats with all the diamonds. Hope that helps! 🙂

My ring is a 7 1/2 (but needs to be sized down to a 7) and is a half carat

Sorry, don’t have mine yet so I can’t show you any pics, but I am a 7.75.  After looking at TONS of pics online, I was convinced that anything below 2 carats was going to look tiny because of the size of my hands.  When we finally went to he store and I tried on a few rings, I realized that I actually preferred the 0.5 – 1 carat range because anything bigger felt like it was too clunky.  (Super pretty, don’t get me wrong, but I was really worried about clunking it on things because I play a lot of sports and do crafts and am relatively klutzy.)  Aside from budget, I think the right size really depends on how you want to have it set and what your lifestyle is like.  So, yeah. I think the most helpful thing to do would be go to a store and just try different things on, then consider what you like the best and feels comfortable enough to be able to wear everyday.

My ring has a center diamond that is about 2.75 ct and the pave halo and band make the total ct weight a bit over 3.0. I have a size 7.75 finger and feel like the size of the ring suits my hand well. Since my hands are on the larger side I like that the stone is a sizable but still looks proportionate.

What shape stone are you looking at? My perfect size is right at 1.5ct. But it is really down to personal taste.

I have size 8 fingers, and mine is a 1.5ct round. I think it’s perfect!

I’m on the opposite side of the spectrum from most Bees. I have a a .40 TCW princess cut halo Ering and I love how it looks on my size 8 finger. I work in a warehouse and beat the crap out of my hands, so I wanted something a little more on the dainty side. I did however get two wedding bands, so I can jazz it up when I feel like it or leave it a little more low key for work.

This is a 7.5mm (1.5 carat) Moissy on a 7.75 finger. One close up and a further away for reference 🙂 I find it to be the perfect size for me personally.

Oh, thinking about it, I would not mind sporting a 5-6 carat rock either! 👌🏻👊🏻
