I have a princess cut in a Tiffany style white gold band with no surrounding diamonds, and love it! It’s a 1 ct, which is perfect for me… I probably would have gone up to a 1.3 or so if we could have afforded it, but no higher because I have teeny tiny fingers.

The center stone is 1.51 carats and the side stones are .33 each – total weight 2.18.  I have pretty normal sized fingers and hands and I think it is perfect!!  Kiss

I don’t think there is any “typical” carat weight. It’s whatever you and your Fiance can afford, and whatever you feel looks good on your finger. I would definitely recommend going into jewelry stores and trying on different styles and different carat weights, because what looks one way online or in a picture might look completely different on your finger.

I would go try on rings with different carat weight.  I tried on a one carat solitare and hated it on me (too big).  My Fiance got me a smaller, higher quality solitaire in a six prong crown setting. πŸ™‚

platinum is better than white gold

I really suggest trying on rings to see what size works for your hand. 1ct can look huge on some girls and 2ct looks huge on other girls. As to metals, pick what you like!

I know 1ct- 1.50ct is pretty popular and ideal for regular people….I have a 1.5ct and it’s perfect.  And I would go for the 18k white gold.

I researched the white gold versus platinum debate and I’m sure you can find more info here if you want. For me, white gold is preferable because I don’t like the idea of the metal darkening as it ages. But that’s just me.

I have a cushion cut, so I can’t speak to emeralds specifically… but I think that what you see online is a bit misrepresentative of what is actually out there. I think it depends on where you live, who you spend your time with, and what kinds of income you have to determine your “normal.” I’m an attorney in the midwest and my ring is 1ct… so I feel like among the people I hang out with my stone is pretty normal sized. If I was an attorney in NYC it would be considered small. If I was hanging out with people from my hs in the small town I grew up in, it would be considered big. Just depends who you’re with πŸ™‚
