Omg so funny I was going to make this post after seeing the other one (super fun!) but I didn’t want to sound like I was complaining because I’m definitely not!

Anyway, my 1.5 looks like a 1.25 max to me because it’s a deep cut cushion. But I still looooove her! I chose the stone knowing this. Wouldn’t trade her for the world.

Ha! I was thinking the same thing! I have giant size 7 fingers, so my 1.71 ct doesn’t look as big as it would on a smaller hand.

2.2 ct cushion on a 6.5 finger.  Faces up like a 1.9 ct round.

Just an aside:

I’m amazed at how many people think size 7 is a “GIANT” size! I have always thought it was the average size for a woman, and it’s the one found in most jewellery stores. 

My finger is just under a 7 and I’ve always thought it was not too big or too small.

It is considered medium. I would say average as well.

Here is my 1.21 heart on a size 7.

I meant the size 7 is giant for ME. My daughter is ordering her high school class ring, and I pulled out my ring to show her. It was a size 4.5, which still isn’t as small as some ladies here with size 3.5 fingers, but looked just miniscule to me now. Osteo arthritis runs in my family, and I am NOT complaining because there could be worse things, but it certainly does increase the size of one’s fingers over time! My daughter is slim and beautiful, but is 4 inches taller than I am with a size 9 ring finger, and I don’t see her fingers as giant at all. I’m just harder on myself because my hands used to be so much smaller.
