I wear a 2.5 carat ring, and i wouldn’t go much bigger with a round stone. I would go to 4 carats if it was an oval though.ย

I thought I would want a 1.5-2 ct but after trying some on I was REALLY surprised how big it looked on my finger and I just didn’t like it. My ideal stone sits at 1ct for an engagement ring. (A right hand ring/cocktail ring might be a different story, for a different stone especially). I think emerald and oval stones can stand to be bigger (maybe up tot 2cts?)- but for rounds and cushions 1 ct is about right for me.

0.85-1ct looks perfect on my size 4 finger.

My ring is a 1.1 and I actually feel it’s a bit large. I could have gone down to maye a .9 on my finger.

I wear a 1 ct emerald cut on a 5.5-6 finger. ย The biggest I’ve tried on is a 3ct asscher. I think that is the max I would wear. Anything bigger looks like costume jewellery.ย

Congratulations! I hope you’ll come back and post pics after your reset.

My sapphire is almost 3 carats but faces up more like a 2 carat round diamond. When I first got it I thought I could handle something larger but while it’s setting was being created, I wore a moissanite stand in that my sweetie got me. It faced up like a 2.75 carat and that was actually too big for me. I think my ring is the max that I would wear regularly and on a daily basis. I feel as though I’ve got perfect coverage on my finger.

But a larger ring for occasional rhr wear- absolutely!

I wear a 2.21ct emerald cut and I would absolutely swoon over a 3.5ct emerald cut for every day wear.  I live in NJ so I could easily get away with it not standing out too much.
