    Why don’t you just measure it?? Just take a ruler or a measuring tape and you use the smallest lines on there. Those are mm.

    Also, since you asked, and since I happen to have a 7mm stone in my e-ring… here ya go! Mine is a cushion cut, so it will look a little different from yours. mine is a size 5.

    Let us know if it turns out to be a 7mm when you measure it! 😉

    @bunnyharriet:  then measure it in inches and use an online converter to convert it to mm! Google will do that itself actually

    Mine is like 6.93mm, size 4.5.  That one looks pretty close.

     I agree that seems a little small. My diamond is a little less than 1.5 carat (1.48 I think?) and from what I recall it is 7.2 mm or something like that. My finger is 5.5  I wouldnt be shocked if the eBay measurements were a little off!

    It could just be an illusion because it’s a darker stone. I do see what you mean though questioning it being 1.25… It’s very pretty though! =)

    Carat size is not just dependent on the measurement but the cut of the stone as well. It could be a deeper cut stone which would mean that more of the stone is in the point leaving less for the face of it.

    If you want to get a realistic idea of what different sized stones will look like on your finger, there are sites that have printable guides. Moissaniteco.com has a downloadable stone size chart, just as an example. (not saying you want moissanite, but it will give you carat equivilents)

    I’m pretty sure it is the size advertised. My stone is 7 or 8mm and 1.5 ct and it looks about like that.
