One of my good friends from high school’s (whose dad is ULTRA wealthy) step mom. I think it was 3-4 carats. I’m guessing 3 on the centerstone and 2 or 3 more around the band?

My former boss has an engagement ring that is 3 2 carat diamonds & it stretches across 2 fingers. It’s one of the ugliest rings I’ve ever seen.

The woman who did our appraisal was rocking a 7ct round brilliant solitaire. It was the size of a boulder, I swear. 🙂 I couldn’t stop staring at it.

one of the nurses at the hospital where i used to work rocked a 6ct diamond ring. it was massive! i heard that her and her husband invested in the ring instead of the wedding and eloped. not a bad idea although she only wore it occasionally to work since it was difficult to put on gloves.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything larger than 1 carat. Big rings just aren’t common where I live.

between 8.5 and 9 carats. i grew up living next door to the daughter of a jeweler. her mother had a round solitaire set in platinum. i believe it was either 8.5 or 8.75 carats. it was huge (i used to call it “savta’s headlight” (savta is hebrew for grandmother, fyi, it’s what the kids called her- the family was jewish), and it looked fake. it was kind of cloudy, but still sparkled like mad under their shop’s lights.

she only wore it on holidays, and when she was in the store. the rest of the time, it was in the shop safe or their safe at home.

I’ve seen tons of women with 2-4 cts, it’s pretty common where I’m from!

There was a girl in my class last year that had one that was about 2 carats plus a halo. That’s the biggest one that I’ve seen that stands out in my mind.

When I was in the diamond district I tried on a 12 ct pink diamond. It was over 5 million dollars.

There was a woman who worked in the same field as I did but for a different organization. We both were active in the same professional association, and I used to attend meetings with her and would admire her stunning, three-carat solitaire from across the conference table.

My older friend has a 3ct! It’s massive and is super sparkly but to me it’s too big I like my 1ct!

One of the women at my daughter’s swim class has a 2.5-3 carat round that is excellent cut and clarity. My stone is just a little smaller is a 2.36 sapphire cut like a 2 carat diamond.

my SO’s step mom’s diamond wedding set… the whole set is over 8 carats with the center stone at 4.5 ct. It’s two 5-stone wedding bands with a 5-stone e-ring. the thing takes up her whole finger and the center stone legit looks like an ice skating rink. it’s INSANE!

A 10 CT marquise on my finger.  It was at one of the jewelers where I was browsing for wedding bands…
