Yes it looks about a 1/4 carat. Maybe even .15 since you said you have a size 4 finger. Was it necessary to refer to it as tiny though? You may not have meant it this way but your whole post is giving off a “hey how tiny is this little diamond (that my mom could afford in her 20’s) only worthy of being an RHR?” vibe. Many bees have Erings this size and below.

Measure it with a mm measuring tape and then use a diamond conversion chart.

leekissesme :  why does she need to describe its size at all? Isn’t that what she’s asking about with picture included? We can see.

 

Small solitaire sounds much less abrasive than “tiny.” Just saying..

Yeah, as Amb1030 said – it’s prob 0.15 – 0.2 – but I wouldn’t refer to it as ‘small’. Β I see this a lot as an ‘American attitude’ that anything under 1 ct is ‘tiny’. In most other countries 0.25 is a fairly decently sized e-ring. Don’t put your ring down just because it’s not gigantic. Appreciate it for what it is – a gorgeous diamondΒ

amb1030 :  perhaps she is a descriptive person or just a person in general that provides details. If I go get my car fixed land they give me a big ass bill I’m not going to just say I got a bill. And vice versa if they give me a super small bill I would say that too.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. For me I don’t see a problem with her being descriptive and this is coming from someone who used to have small diamond solitaire herself. Not everyone find the word “tiny” offensive unless penis size is being discussed πŸ˜‚

leekissesme :  Ok? It’s just the people tend to attach a lot of sentiment to an engagement ring and seeing someone posting about “how tiny is this TINY solitaire I’ll be wearing on my right hand” could be a little upsetting to someone who has an even smaller stone. By the way, her solitaire is NOT tiny and it’s rude to say so. .15.2 is not that small.

11stardustwanderlust11 :  I didn’t find it rude or hurtful. But on the internet there a ton of different opinions, personalities, thought processes, backgrounds, etc chiming in so just know that you can offend someone for just saying have a great day πŸ˜‚πŸ™„
