A single diamond that’s 2ct, slightly warm or whiter and eye clean is a big rock imho.

a composite, cluster or quad is a big look In My Humble Opinion.

I feel like on any size finger, a 2+ ct stone is a big rock.  But any size gemstone is gorgeous in my eyes ๐Ÿ˜€

Hm…. to me, it’s more a  percentage of finger coverage I think more so than actual size, although that is noticeable too! 

50-60% finger coverage *looks* big to me. 2+ct (or roughly 8mm +) is big to me, but REALLY big doesn’t start until either 80% coverage or more, or probably 3+ carats.

I think this thread is so interesting! Most of my friends have between 1.25-1.75 I’d say and I think that’s a pretty solid size! I think anything over 2.5 is like woahhhhh for a round stone. I also think the size of the finger matters.

I tried on a 1 carat of my friends and my chuby sausage fingers dwarfed it lol

Over 2.5 carats is what I consider BIG.

My mom has a 2 carat, I have a 2.31, friend has a 2.7, so my frame of reference might be skewed a bit…

My stone seemed ‘huge’ the first time I wore it but the shrinkage thing is real. Mine is 2.23 so i’d think 3 and over would be ‘massive’. 

One day…

For me, anything more than like 50% finger coverage is too big. I think the sweet spot is around 1/3 for finger coverage – but that’s just personal preference!

It depends.In my country (Italy ) I’d say anything over .40/.50 points is considered big,a little less here in the north maybe.Anything over .75 is HUGE and almost tacky.That is the general consensus.Even colored stones are not big.

Now,for me,as someone with a passion for rings and stones…I think anything between 1 and 2 cts is a good,plenty big stone.over 2 cts is BIG.And I used to wear an 8.5 mm OEC moissy xD

I think times are changing now that diamond alternatives are way more popular people are choosing bigger and bigger stones. I think maybe 5 years ago a 1ct would be a BIG ROCK! now Its shifted a little and I would consider a 1.5-2+ ct to be a big rock. That also depends on ring size. I think for a 7+ ring size then you’d need a bigger stone to have that wow HUGE factor. 6 and smaller ring size could get away with .75-1ct still being significantly big.
