I love bling, *but* the largest solitaire I’d wear is a one carat. I might up it a bit for total carat weight, however…depending on the look. My engagement ring is a size six and a half, but it spins a little and I might have it resized. Anyhow, I have a .50 solitaire and I find that it’s plenty for me. I always thought I’d prefer more, but my ideal is anywhere from .25 to .75 now. I’ve read about “shrinking” (lol), but I don’t see it changing.

I honeslty wouldn’t want any larger than the 1ct i have. With daily wear and getting it caught in my gloves etc etc, i just wouldn’t want to deal with it. 

But i am totally not much of a blinging person. My solitaire is plenty sparkly for me.

The smallest carat in the world be perfect for me.  If I remember correctly mine’s a 1/4 of a carat and while I love it I still would have preferred a smaller carat.

@lilsweetie:  5.5 finger, I probably wouldn’t wear larger than 3ish carats every day. I’d love to own larger diamonds but I doubt I’d wear them as often.

My finger size is 7.  The stone we picked out is .7 carats, they showed me a few larger but they just didn’t seem right to me.  I couldn’t imagine anything over 1.25.

I do think I’m in the minority but .75 carat. Size 6 ring.  I was married before, and that’s what he proposed with.  I loved it, a heart shaped solitare, but it did get in the way sometimes (pockets, sleeping, etc).  It’s annoyances were just little enough it was more happy reminders (at the time lol).

I’m a tomboy and wanted a 24/7 ring this time that wasn’t at all pointy/stabby/catchy on things.  I’ve got a sideways set marquise .47 carat and it’s absolutely perfect.  I didn’t even think I liked marquise but we were given his mom and dad’s ring (which his mom had reset with plenty of gold) to reset how we wanted. And did this:

Size is great and all, and I can really appreciate big rings on other womens’ hands, but not mine!

I would love a huge blingy ring, but for everyday wear I would probably go a max of 3cts, but I would be more comfortable with something around 2

I think a 3 ct would be my max, on a size 8 finger.

I personally prefer the dainty look of a smaller diamond, so I’d say maximum 0.7 carat for me. My finger size is 5.

Probably a one carat, max. My finger size is 5 and I have fairly small, delicate hands and don’t like the look of big rocks on them. I am also on the clumsy side and am constantly flinging my hands into things. I love them on other women, just not me!
