    I would say since that is a pretty busy ering that’s probably why they went with something on the smaller side. I love a good thick wedding band with a solitare. The busier the setting I prefer the simpler the band.

    My ering has a little over 1 carat diamond center and another 1/2 carat in 2 diamond side stones. My wedding band is .40 carats. I found that anything bigger made my ering look smaller and didn’t conpliment it as much. I would wear a 1-2 carat anniversary band on my other hand though 😉

    It’s really up to you. I would try some other options if you’re worried that the .2 carat band isn’t enough bling for you. Also, if you have short fingers anything thicker may just accentuate their shortness.

    Good luck!

    0.47cts, but my band is three-sided, and it’s a 2/3 eternity, whereas the one you posted looks like 1/2 eternity.  So, if I take 0.47 and divide by the three sides, then factor in the 2/3 vs 1/2, mine would be about 0.08, so I think with 0.22 you’re doing ok!

    I’m pretty sure mine is 3/8ct. It has diamonds across about 1/3 of the band, 12 diamonds in total. I tried on bands with bigger diamonds but they looked weird to me because they didn’t match the size of the diamonds in my wedding band.

    The band is 1.4 carats (equivalent – it is Moissanite). It has 11 channel-set princess cut moissanites, they go about halfway around the band. I love it!

    My engagement ring is a 1.1 carat princess solitaire moissanite, so total of 2.5 (although honestly that sounds big to me, it really doesn’t look huge since the band is channel set).

    I think that’s the petite version on MoissyCo? If so, it’s meant to be tiny tiny. Here’s a real life picture of it from another girl on betterthandiamond.


    EDIT: Oops, wrong one.
