    Preference of carat size really depends on the person.  I am a size 4.25 and wear a 1.72 carat.  I voted size .9 – 1 carat for a size 5.

    I voted 0.9 – 1ct because I’m partial to a larger stone. Having small hands makes the single carat look much bigger! 1.01ct on my 5.25 hand:

    The bigger to better for me! If you can afford it get as big as you want. My ring isn’t a diamond but it’s about 3cts.

    I have size 5 hands and I have a 2.6ct sapphire. It has a halo and I don’t think it looks too big at all. However, I do admire smaller stones all the time! What you prefer depends on just that: what you prefer! Everyone will think differently.

    I personally think smaller stones are more elegant and beautiful, but have you tried on any rings to see what you like? It’s one thing to see how different people where certain carats, and quite another thing to see it on your own hand.

    (for reference, I have a size 4 finger and .66 diamond)

    I voted 1ct . i am a size 5 and you can get way better finger coverage with a smaller hand .

    I have a 1ct. So, I like a little bit bigger stone. I doubt I would go much bigger.

    Here’s my 1.72 carat on a size 4.25. I love big solitaires!

    I have a size 5.5 finger and I found anything over a carat looked a bit big on my hand (as a solitaire) but that is just my taste. I would love a .9, but will likely end up with a .5 or slightly bigger due to budget, but I would not want anything less than .5 as .5 looked good but any smaller I think would look a bit small and disproportionate on my finger.

    It is all in the personal preference for your personality and what suits you. I have always worn “big” rings for as long as i can remember, small petite rings just get lost on me even though I have tiny hands…so i went with “big” and “blingy”. Dont listen to those who say small and dainty is “timeless” and “classy”….. for who??? Yes, perfect for some but definitely not for others, you will know once its on your hand if it is for you , good luck

    I voted 1 carat because there was no option to vote larger. However it just comes down to personal preference, you could go up to 5 carats before it would start to look like a cocktail ring for occasional wear and less than 0.25 carat would also look absolutely beautiful, it’s a personal choice…
