I actually don;t have my ring yet. But I know how you feel. I fell in love with a diamond just under the half carat mark. Ladies I know that I tell, look at me, as if I am trying to be frugal, or that I am just trying to be “different”. Really there is nothing wrong with either. But that just isn’t the case. I truly fell in love with a small diamond. Is there anything wrong with that?!

I have a large .75 because for me it’s all about the cut and how the ring looks.  I’m sorry I don’t have any pics of mine but I was intent on finding something vintage looking and something that fits my finger.  So that’s what he did.  It looks awesome and has a ton of sparkle but it’s not huge so when I go out in the daytime I don’t feel gaudy.  

I tried on some bigger rings and I felt gaudy and self-conscious.  The weird thing is I will wear other stones bigger.  I have two huge sapphire and topaz rings but diamonds are “too much” for me.

It’s your wedding/engagement ring.  You should wear something you absolutely love because you are planning on wearing this for a long time.  Just make sure it passes a gut check and it looks amazing on you.  Also keep in mind smaller people, smaller fingers, smaller stones look better.  Unfortunately, i am not a small person so my stone looks reasonable on me but any smaller might make me look kinda big.

Here is my ring! Center stone is a little over 1/3 of a carat. It’s a perfect size for a 22 year old 🙂 Couldn’t be happier!!

I can’t imagine having something bigger than I do. The middle stone on mine is seriously probably like .05 or something and I’m still always scratching myself and Darling Husband and I feel like it gets in the way, lol. I’m just not really a jewelry person. Even my plain band feels too thick on my hand sometimes. Maybe I’m just a freakin weirdo. I have no desire for a large stone outside of halloween and dressup.

My ring is made of several very small diamonds clustered together. It’s pretty and sparkly, but not a big raised solitaire or anything. I like the sparkle, but didn’t want something so big. I have gotten a lot of compliments on my ring and it fits my taste perfectly.

My ring has a center stone of .60. The TCW is 1.35. The floating halo in conjunction with my size 5 finger makes my ring look huge, IMO. We are on a budget but even if we weren’t, I would have picked this ring 🙂 

SO just put down half of the $$ for it yesterday 🙂

Mine is a G brilliant cut VVS1 .45 ct center stone diamond with 68 other small brilliant ideal cut pave diamonds in the halo and band (.75 ctw). I have small hands (my finger is 4.75) and I tried bigger diamonds and decided they weren’t for me. This one is a very high quality stone that is smaller but set in 18 ct gold so was still pretty pricy. My sister thought it was over a carat because the cut is round and large on the face instead of wasting carat weight below and the setting and halo adds to the size. It is as large as my mom’s 1ct and it also has a profile like a larger diamond. 

My band (not pictured) is another 1 ctw micropave so my ctw is just distributed differently and better for my hand size.

my ring is perfect and I wouldn’t choose any other diamond or change a thing!
