I love my solitare! It’s a princess cut solitare with a white gold band! It’s a 1.71 carat size. I got a plain wedding band to go with it.

If you want a certain amount of finger coverage in that 1 carat, check out bluenile’s diamond carat size chart (http://www.bluenile.com/diamonds/diamond-carat-weight). Just rough estimates, of course, but a good place to start to see how shape changes appearance of size. Like my 1.51 carat princess cut, viewed from the top, is only as big as a ~1 carat round cut also viewed from above.

Mine is a .91 – so right around the carat weight you’ll get and I have a 3.75 size finger. Shown with a .5 carat, channel set band

Mine is none of the shapes you mentioned, but she is a solitaire so I figured she is worthy. 🙂

I had to do some searching to find a picture of just my e-ring 🙂 Mine is about 1 carat.

Mine is a round solitaire, 1.75 carats. Yay for solitaires! 🙂
I like round because they have a lot of fire and I like the symbolism of the shape.

I, too, have a round solitaire! Mine is something like .85 ct….just under the 1 ct. mark, which did save lots of money! Here are some pictures of my ring and wedding band.
