    I myself wouldn’t go higher than a carat

    My stone is 1.5c and I think it’s perfect.

    So I vote 1.5c.

    Where’s the 1.5-2 range?  I think my ideal would be 1.5-1.75.

    I love my diamond, it is 1.5, but I’d love 2.

    I think it really depends on finger size! what works for someone else may look too big or small on my finger. if you go by this chart, I like a coverage of about 35-40%.

    My diamond is .25 and I love it. I wouldn’t mind a little bit bigger but I voted .25 to .5 because I’m not really into a ton of bling either.

    1.75 – 2 cts. I’m a size 6.5 and my current ring is 1.7. I could go a little bigger but I like the way my current diamond looks on my finger.

    @patchy:umm..is it sad that that chart makes no sense to me, haha.  I’m an english major, so I’ll blame it on that!

    I voted 0.5-0.75.  Anything larger on me feels “costume”!

    Are we talking T.C.W. or center stone?

    If money were no object, there was a 2ct diamond ring in my favourite jeweller that I wouldn’t have said no to, but I’m perfectly happy with my 1.25ct ring (inherited, and huge by UK standards).

    I have a size 4.5 finger, and my 1.5ct moissy looks perfect on me. 🙂

    Two and above, I’m a big diamond lover…as if you couldn’t tell.

    Cool
