    Hard to guess with out knowing your finger size, but regardless: it looks really elegant on you and I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Practically impossible to interpret the correct tenth of a carat from a photo. Especially without knowing a finger size.

    Carat weight is difficult to determine.  A diamonds table, depth, crown angle, pavillion depth, girdle and cutlet all go into the total shape and carat weight of a stone.  As long as you are happy, it is big enough.

    I would have said 0.4 to 0.5.

    It does not seem small to look at.

    Oh, I love it! I voted .50, but on second glance it’s probably .75. It’s really difficult to tell carat sizes, even with finger size. It’s the cut of a stone and the length and width of a finger that dictates what a stone looks like.

    I’ve been told mine looks .75 by a jeweller looking at my hand – I have long fingers. It’s a 1 ct., so it can be deceptive.

    In any case you have a decadent look going on there!

    Yeah, I think it’s lovely, which should be far more important than the carat size!!!
