    I have a 1.5 carat round heirloom diamond that was given to me by dh’s grandma right before our ceremony abroad. I only wear it on special occasions or when I see my in-laws. However, I regularly wear my 1 carat round brilliant that I got legally married with in the states.  I feel like in my area the range is .50-2 carat diamond solitaires and halos.

    I have a 1.02 carat diamond, I think in my area the most common size is about a .7 for a solitaire. Among my friends and family though 1 carat is the norm 🙂

    my diamond is 1.06ct (my original diamond was .50, it is now set as a pendant). I would say in the UK the average size is around about the half carat mark but I am increasingly seeing bigger stones. I feel that in the UK it is more common to buy from high  street jewellers and they are very costly for what you get.

    Mine is 1.75ct round brilliant F colour diamond.

    where i currently live, people dont really have big stones rings, mostly smaller diamonds put together. Average size would be around 0.5-0.75 🙂
