    I’m in Pittsburgh, Pa and around here the size can vary greatly! Just depends on what area of the city you’re from. I’ve seen rings bigger than 3 carats. My best friends ring is a .5 solitaire, my dad’s fiance’s is a 2 carat halo. My ring will be a 1.5 ct equivalent moissanite solitaire with moissanites along the shank. My grandmother’s engagement rings was a .20 solitaire with little idamond chips on the sides. It’s all over the place here.

    @wrkbrk:  People are much more into bling these days. Consequently erings are bigger now on average than they were in the 80s and 90s.

    I voted for 2ct+ because living in Los Angeles, that isn’t unusual.  However, for myself and my circle of friends, I am blessed to have my gorgeous 0.91ct. 🙂  Most important of all, it came from my wonderful FI!
