I think 1.5 on my 6.25 finger.  I’m pretty active and a casual dresser, so a bunch of bling wouldn’t fit my lifestyle at all.

@lilsweetie:  nothing more than 2 carats. i’m a size 6 but for my personal taste, 2 is enough. 🙂

I think my 1.32 carat stone is my max. Looking at other women’s rings at work, my ring feels huge. It also just wouldn’t be practical since I’m a nurse. I tried on a few 1.5 carat stones and they felt way too big and out of place on my finger.

My max would be 2 carats.

My engagement ring is .75 (my setting minimizes it, frankly, so it looks smaller), and I think that’s pretty great for an every day of your life-type ring. I wear non-precious jewelry that’s much larger, so I guess 2-2.5-carat sized stones would be fine; I just wouldn’t want it in an engagement ring.

1.5. I specifically asked for a 1 carat diamond. I thought it was the perfect size.

So I’m going to be honest and say I’d rock a 4-5 carat diamond. I wear a size 6, but i have long fingers (like… long. Palm a basketball long) and have no issues with bling. 

My 2 ct is pretty perfect, in my opinion. But if money were no object (read: if we could wipe our bums with 100’s) yeah, I’d go big.

I’d say max would be 3 carats. I’m a size 7. My Fiance hasn’t told me the size of my ring, but my guess is probably somewhere between 1.5-2. For the most part, I think it looks pretty big, but I have my days where it feels smaller. But I wouldn’t want anything ENORMOUS.

Probably 2 ct, MAYBE 2.5. Any more than that, and it’s just ridiculous to spend the money, not to mention that people will probably think it’s fake anyway. I have a good job and a nice car, but not 2.5 carat good!

For me, no more than 1 carat. A poll would have been cool to see too!

I would say a 2 carat on my size 5 finger.  I currently have a 1 ct center stone and its plenty big!

@JaneyDcat: I respect your opinions.  I have a 2ct center that my FH chose all on his own , would you consider me a show off?

I have 1 ct and I think anything bigger than 1.5 would be too much for me personally

If I was a millionaire maybe 3-4 carats but that’s probably the ONLY way I would be comfortable wearing that much lol On an average middle class-upper middle class income, I would say 2 carats. I wouldn’t want to spend more than the cost of 2 carats on something that would be on my finger unless I was super rich =P

ETA: My fingers are huge, I’m an 8-8.5 so the 3 carats wouldn’t look near as huge on my fingers!
