Mine is 1ct, i think its a perfect size, but sometimes i think it being a little smaller would not be a bad idea either! I see some rings that are .5 and they look perfect!

Thats a very personal question and what is too big or too small is going to vary for each person.

I have a .5ct center stone in a low setting and it is perfect for me and my lifestyle.

Mine is 1.25 and I think that is awesome! I don’t think there is any perfect size, it’s whatever looks best on your finger, and whatever you can afford.  I think that quality also helps make a ring because it determins the sparkle factor!

I am a woman who loves diamonds.  All shapes and sizes!  I can’t help it.  But I also love my Fiance and I’m glad he didn’t go overboard and spend more than he could comfortably afford.  So when he proposed, the ring was perfect.  Its a one carat cushion cut with .5 on the band.  Its great for me (although I wouldn’t of turned down a larger diamond lol).

My center stone is .25, with two slightly smaller stones on either side. It’s perfect for me and comparable to center stones of other girls around where I live. But I live in a pretty rural area and people around here have less money/spend less on “luxury items.”

My center stone is a round 1.26 carat diamond, surrounded by small diamonds – 121 diamonds altogether. I don’t think there is such thing as too large (hehehe) HOWEVER, I will add that every day when I get home from work, one of the first things I do is take off my e-ring and put it in its place. It is always either on my finger or in it’s ring holder at my house. Having said that, I can see why some people might lean toward a slightly smaller stone and/or setting for their e-ring.  We are leaning toward an eternity band that I can wear at all times and be comfortable that I’m not going to dirty it up or bang it around too much while doing normal daily activity at home.

my center stone is .5 carat with two .10 stones on either side. I love the proportions and if I got a bigger center stone I’d get bigger side stones because the ring just looks perfect. I would like a bigger stone though bc I have chubby fingers but the dainty rings are worthy in their own right. I live in Seattle and I see small stones, no stones, gemstones and huge rocks so I fit in with the mix.

My center stone is about .3 carats. Its smaller than the stones a lot of people have, but its a good size for me. I love it! I have always loved intricate bands, and Fiance did a great job of paying attention to what I liked when he bought my ring. I think if I had been more concerned with stone size, he would have focused on it, as well- but I just wasn’t concerned about it.

My ring is a .81 solitaire. I have really tiny hands so the stone looks like a larger carat weight

Am I the only person who has no idea?  Granted, my center stone isn’t a diamond, but I haven’t a clue what size it is.

@teaadntoast: There’s a nifty chart here that can tell you what the likely carat weight of your stone is for different cuts and gems. That’s how I figured out the size of my garnet. 🙂
