I picked my ring, and it’s total weight is 1/2 carat, but that includes all the diamonds not just the centre stone. I picked my ring because it was beautiful, I love the halo and the antique look. Plus I’m a no frills kind of girl, I personally didn’t want something huge and I didn’t want him spending a fortune on it, otherwise I could still be waiting while he saved. What I love about the ring is that we decided to upgrade it over the years were together, so on our 10th anniversary were going to swap out the small centre stones for a larger one.

I hsve a .5 ct, and I know what you mean.  The bee has definitely made me self-counscious about it, whereas before I never doubted its size.

Most people I come across day to day do tend to have what looks like under a carat. I think this site attracts those who love to show off their massive rocks. Although in NY, especially Manhatten, I hear that 1.5+ carats are the norm.

I have a 1/2 carat ring, but it is so freaking sparkly that lots of people notice it.  My man is so meticulous, he would rather pay money for a smaller stone with fewer imperfections, in fact, he said he even looked at up to 2ct stones.  I love love love my “small” stone!

It’s not the size of the rock but the love behind it.  This is my engagement ring and I love it! I’ve been told that my ring is not an engagement ring because it is a Sapphire and Diamond Claddagh ring not a normal solitaire. I love my ring and I wouldn’t trade it in for anything else ever!

Mine is not even 1 ct. but I am a cheater because I have a halo.

Don’t worry about how big other rings are; that’s great for them… Guess what!? Those people who have massive rings?… There are others out there with even bigger ones!!

Your ring is YOUR ring, as long as you love it screw what others have to say!

@frommisstomrs.:  Love those nails! And the ring!

OP, have you seen the stone in person yet? I’m just wondering because you said “I’m worried I might end up not liking it”. If you have seen it and you already know you love it, don’t second guess yourself just because of the size!

You are right, in everyday life I don’t see many huge rocks either. Your ring will be beautiful, don’t worry. Anyone who would judge you on the size of your ring has their own problems to deal with.

 @frommisstomrs.:  I think it is gorgeous!!

it makes me sad that us small stone girls feel self conscious! Our rings are just as lovely and mean just as much as a large stone ring!

Mine has a 1/2 ct center stone and I LOVE it and have no plans to go bigger!

@starla

Thank you guys!  I love it too, but even though it’s real, the Fiance and I have been talking about maybe going to a 1ct moissanite..

@missbluesky:  Post a picture of yours!  I’d love to see it – emerald cuts are so pretty!

@MeelaMay:  I live and work in Manhattan, and there are definitely some rocks here!  That is just not my taste, though.

I love my ring just the way it is 🙂  I don’t know the carat size, but I think it is gorgeous:

Size isn’t all that matters. I think colour is way more important. A fancy pink diamond at .4 carats is FAR more impressive than a blah white 1 carat. Smaller stones look more dainty and delicate anyway.

honestly, I thought my .5ct ring was perfect until I started stalking weddingbee.  whenever I’m good and can keep myself away from the ring boards for a while, I fall in love with my ring all over again.

one suggestion: get yourself a blingy wedding band, that will really add sparkle.

@frommisstomrs.:  honestly if you love it, don’t let others sway you! I’d stick with your diamond girl! (Not saying moissy isn’t great)
