My finger is a size 4.75. I don’t think there is a max for me. LOL. As long as it is tasteful. Like Beyonce’s 20 carat stunner and not Kim Kardashian’s hot mess.

Wow, much smaller.

It would be what I am wearing because it’s the perfect size for me (sometimes it seems a little large for me, but mostly I think it’s perfect). It is a normal size. I don’t mention my exact carat size bc I mentioned everything else about my diamond already on here, but let’s just say it’s less than half that size and I certainly don’t want bigger!! I am not a fan of honkers.

3-3.5 carat most likely on my 4.5 finger. Though, I’d be interested to try something on even larger. It really depends on cut and setting how good bigger stones look.

My max would be 1.5 carat center stone.


Anything more is “trying to show off” or “overkill”.

Personally, for an engagement ring I wear every day, I wouldn’t want more than 1 carat.  I have small fingers and am easily irritated by big jewellery hitting on things etc. in daily life.  However, I love the look of larger rings on others and would happily have a RHR up to 3 carats to wear occassionally if I could get that lucky!

My finger is a size 4. For a white diamond or clear/white stone I think 1 carat is my perfect size.

For a colored gemstone or black diamond I think 2.5 carats would be the largest I’d want.

I’ve just asked DH for a black diamond ring in the 2-2.5 carat range, so I hope it doesn’t end up looking too huge!

I’d say 2 carats for me.  But mostly because I love halos and would stick with a halo.

I think 2 carats in a single stone would be my max. I’m not a blingy person. I live in hoodies and yoga pants ahaha. The ring I have now (temporary) is a 1 carat center with a halo. My forever ring will be a 7.5mm moissy (1.5 carat)

If I wanted something I thought was huge, 1ct max. My actual ring will be 0.4ct, which I think is perfect size for me.

I dont know if I can answer. I want to say 3 carats would be the max on my 4.75-5 finger but I guess it’s bc I can never imagine having a 20 carat ring.

my finger size is a 7 ( a UK N size) and my E ring is a 1 ct solitair, and personally any bigger looked too ‘in yer face’ for me.

My ring is 1 carat and I wouldn’t want anything much larger… I’d say 1.25 would be my absolute max.
