Mine is 1.27 carat but I think it is proportional for my finger. My jeweler said he wouldn’t even have recommended a 4 prong for that size. I wanted 6 anyway just for the rounder look. Can’t post pic from iPad. I’ll try to update tomorrow.

I don’t think the size matters. You should pick whatever size is in your budget and looks good to you on your hand. If the prongs are dainty and well done, it will not overpower the diamond. Just make sure your jeweler does good prong work.

My mom has a 1.5 carat diamond in a 6 prong setting, it looks great. Anything smaller than a 1 looks overwhelming to me.

Mine is half carat and while I do think it could sit higher/with less prongs and “pop” a bit more, I am more than thrilled with the profile view and the security of six!!

Mine is 1.01. My FI proposed with the diamond in a simple 4 prong solitare setting so we could design my ring together and although the 4 prong looked bigger, the 6 prong looks rounder and more elegant. I lost my pics of the 4 prong, sorry, but here’s the 6…

And before I got them to switch the orientation…

@dfutureNP:  Mine is just under (not sure exact size) a carat . It is set with 6 prongs and is very sparkly!
