My engagement ring is a .33 ct diamond in platinum and my wedding ring is 18k white gold.  I have really small hands so dainty rings are my best friend 🙂

Not my original, but this is my grandmother’s ring. Half carat marquise center, but that’s all I know about it

.23 champagne diamond in a white gold setting. Set my Fiance back $300 and I couldn’t be happier with it.

   I think my ring is small by wedding bee standards but I love it, specially with the other bands.

My ring is is a 14K rose gold halo with a .25ct center stone (just had to look the specs up on the Jared website). It’s “small” by contemporary standards but I love it and it suits me.

My modest ring, we chose the ring together, and he was happy to go bigger, but I don’t wear rings often, and preferred the more petite look. 🙂

Oh jeez I just saw the little fuzz on it sorry lol. Anyway mine is just .47 carats in the middle. My fancier than me husband really wanted a halo and band stones so this is what I got lmao. Its modest but sort of not all at once. I love my centre so much now. Even if it’s not big compared to so many 🙂

Love this thread!! Was starting to feel very lonely with my gorgeous dainty ring! I don’t know the specs apart from it’s an emerald cut diamond (my favourite) on white gold!

What a gorgeous thread! There is something really special about smaller stones. I have a .54 carat oval diamond and I love everything about it!

Mine is a 0.33ct heirloom that we placed in a 2mm rose gold setting. I have a size 5 finger. I love the detailing of the setting and how low-profile it is (I’m a Physio so that was super important to me). I’d say mine is slightly smaller than most of my friends’ but it’s so very “me” and I love it to bits!

My engagement ring center is around .53, which some people consider a big stone size and others consider small. But overall, the setting is thin and has a dainty sort of feel to it. I’ve always thought of it as a modest ring, in a good way. I have a size 7 finger, so I’ve had lots of people, including my mom, tell me it is “too small” and not pretty on my hand. But I still love it! I have a few different sets (been married a long time — ha, ha!), but I still enjoy wearing my original.

It came to me with all diamonds — a mix of baguettes and rounds — set in 18K gold.

For our 17th or 18th (can’t remember which) anniversary, I had my engagement ring setting redone. I never liked the diamond baguettes, so I had them replaced with blue sapphires.

I love my unique ring! It’s a 1/2 carat pear halo. 5/8 carat tw. I think it fits me beautifully!
