WHY oh why does my .75 carat solitaire look so tiny? Can I see yours?

Oh I don’t think it looks tiny at all! I think it looks very classic and elegant and you have slim fingers, so that works out great. Here is a picture of my Nana’s vintage engagement ring, it was also her mom’s from the 30’s. My nana passed away two months ago, SO and I have been talking about getting engaged, so I’ve been wearing it off and on for the past few months. The center stone is actually .41 carats and the TCW is .50. It’s small, and I have bigger fingers (somewhere between 5-6), but it looks dainty and feminine. I think your ring is gorgeous!

@nicole1276:  it’s prob a combination of ur finger size and the setting that makes it look “off” to u

I have a .96 on a 6-6.5 finger (my hands swell) and sometimes it looks on the small side and then sometimes, I’m like woah! sparkle time! I think the band makes a difference, mine is channel and it’s wide (more diamonds! lol) so it makes the center appear smaller. Personally I like a smaller center stone, it looks more delicate and feminine to me.

I tend to think mine looks bigger than .75, but I have teeny hands and a size 4 finger (that should probably be a 3.75 if not for my knuckle)
