    thats my ring above. About 1.78 on a size 4.5 finger. I think a 1.5-2c elongated diamond would look great on you! Perfect finger coverage

    i have a 0.4ish carat princess cut solitaire on a size 5 finger. I think it looks proportional to my hands. But i agree with others. its going to depend on your style, lifestyle, budget. etc for what you should get.

    You need to choose something that fits your lifestyle, your budget, and what you feel comfortable wearing. Don’t buy 2 cts just because your friend has 2 carats. If you’re used to big stones then 2 cts might feel fine, but for another person 1/2 a carat might feel huge. 

    My diamond is 1.09 carats, which is perfect for my size 4.5 finger.

    Here’s what a 1.00 carat on a size 4 finger looks like.  I could not be happier.  I completely agree with the above- go with something that fits your lifestyle.  I’d try on diamond shapes and sizes in store.  The higher in the 4 C’s you go, the bigger it will look too- especially in rounds.  Because your fingers are long, I think an oval would be beautiful on your hand.

    Hi! It really is a matter of preference. Go for whatever size looks or feels good to you. Also keep in mind different cuts carry weight or face up differently. So a cushion an oval and a round diamond can appear very different but be the same carats. I have a size 5 ring (although my finger is really a 4.5) to get over my wider knuckles. My stone is a .8 H&A Gia certified stone. Also you should look at some examples to show you some side by sides to get a better sense of the differences.

    I think it really depends on where you live and what your social circle is like. -where I live anything bigger than 1ct we just assume is cz. Not that people can’t afford it, but priorities and life values would rather invest in property and family (school, vacations, etc)

    nowmarriedgirl :  I agree with others who have said to try on various sizes and see what you prefer. I do think you could pull off a huge range of sizes, so it just comes down to getting what you want. 

    I have a 4.5 ring finger and I wear a 2.2 carat black diamond.

    I also have this ring, with a 2 carat radiant cut center. I do love how elongated stones look on smaller fingers.

     I think ovals look really nice on smaller fingers — I have a 4.25 ring with a 2.1 carat solitaire, rose gold.  I just got it last week and love it!
