    I have a 1.01ct cushion diamond. I think it’s average for people my age in my area. My first e-ring was 1.8ct and I would get comments on how big it was all the time, it made me self-conscious.

    Mine is 0.5ct. I also have a 1.5ct moissanite and have tried on 1ct diamond as well as 0.75 and they just look really strange on me. Like a fake cz or something. 0.5 is as big as I’m willing to go. I like dainty elegant jewellery in general though. I live and work in a big city where people are fairly affluent but style here is very understated and it is seen as tacky to have large anything. Maybe it’s a European thing.

    I think the rings we see on here are often larger than is reflective of the general population – depending on where you are. I’m in a HCOL city, so most rings I see in person are over 1 carat.

    Many bees also have centre stones that aren’t diamonds, which may skew it higher than you would see if you were only looking at diamond centre stones.

    I think it would be interesting to have separate polls broke down my natural diamonds/lab diamonds/moissanite/other stones in .25 increments.

    I think wedding bee definitely skews larger. I have a 0.8ct dew moissanite, and I actually find it a little large compared to most of my friends/family/aquaintances. I have only ever seen one diamond bigger than 1ct on one person, whos FH comes from a very affluent family. I would say most rings I have seen IRL are more like 0.3-0.5 total, with most have pave or melee or something

    Why is there no option for no carats? The assumtion that an enagement ring has gemstones doesnt have to hold for everybody.

    newbee5 : I have always admired the classic round solitaire and am planning on getting a 1ct Tiffany-style for an anniversary or something when finances allow ☺️ Also, I like your username by the way! 😉

    My E ring is 1.01 cushion cut, and my wedding ring is a 3 ct Aquamarine & band

    My grandma had a similar aquamarine when I was little so we got a replica of it!

    Mine is a 1.02 carat princess cut with 6 tiny diamonds on both sides. Wedding ring is the matching set with about 14 diamonds the size of the tiny diamonds in the enagagement ring. I definitely think it depends on age and area. My first diamond when I married at 27 was an etermity band. My ring now is from my second marriage at age 44. Plenty of people have big rings in my city (Washington DC), although most of my friends are not into rings and have either nothing or alternatives to the tradition setting with center stone. One carat would by no means be considered out of range here and I bet the average ring size is bigger.
