I’ve been looking around on several boards but I want to get a little more specific.
Would you ladies be able to show me your round solitaire (or Tiffany setting) rings…any carat weights, on a size 4-5 finger?
I am trying to get a better visual of what the size differences look like and I hear that finger size or ratio makes a difference. [Please list your carat size and finger size]
Let me be an excuse to show off your ring porn!! 😉 Thanks!

rubysky726 : my finger is a little bigger but I have the setting you’re looking for. This is just under 1 1/2 on a 5.5 . I think all sizes look great in this setting- just go for a stone with excellent cut/polish/symmetry and it will be glorious.

rubysky726 : .80 carat on 4.5 (well evidently a bit more than 4.5 on this very hot day!)

Mine’s a little smaller. A 0.7 on size 3 finger.

0.6ct on a size 4.5 🙂 I think anywhere from 0.5-1ct is a perfect size diamond for that sized finger! 🙂

sassybeee : Just wanted to say that your ring is STUNNING! It’s the perfect size on your finger, IMO.

rubysky726 : do you have a set budget? What are your thoughts on colour in diamonds? I say decide those two things then get the biggest eye clean one you can within those parameters – and – this is important, with good light return. The folks at pricescope will help you with that if you post on the forum there. There’s no point getting a big but rubbishy big diamond in my opinion.
generally bees seems to regret too small, rarely too big. Unless you have particular practical reasons to keep a smaller stone (and setting plays a role in practicality too), then go bigger while keeping an eye on your chosen quality parameters. Diamond shrinkage is real.
