@alyssa.christine1:  WHO CARES Laughing LOVE IT UP HUNNY I had the same question about a month ago too. my ring is about 1.25 tcw with a 1ct center and my Fiance still plans on adding to it. I was totally afraid that people where going to look down on me like I was a gold digger lol but my mom told me something that totally made me not care what people thought. she said God blessed you so be happy and tell those bad thoughts where to go. Soooo love it girly.

I think it has more to do with the age/occupation of Fiance and the region in which you live. I was 23 when I got engaged and I was finishing my BA (aka broke), but my Fiance is older (35 then) and is a business owner. Since he is the one buying the ring, the only thing that really determines the size is his budget. My ring has a 2.25ct center which is quite large for my “age bracket”, but standard amongst our married/engaged circle of friends.

I am 18, but Fiance is 29 and has a full-time job/savings/more financially stable.

That has nothing to do with how much money was spent on my e-ring. Mine is a 1 carat center, but it’s moissanite, so it wasn’t as expensive. (And he had the money for diamond; I didn’t want it…I lose things a lot…lol).

I think the carat size doesn’t depend on age as much as financial stability! You can be 22 and have a lot in savings and have a stable job and be able to afford a 1-2 carat ring. It all depends.

The average that I’ve SEEN is around .5 all around, just because I think that’s a pretty basic size that isn’t super expensive and isn’t small or big IMO.

My best friend (and MOH) got engaged on her 21st birthday and her e-ring is a 2 carat round diamond.  My sister got engaged at about age 22 and hers was probably less than a carat.  Just depends on what your FH can afford!

I got engaged when i was 19 (20 now). and i got the same reaction. I dont know every diamond weight. But TWC is i think 1.34? And my wedding band adds another carat. But i also agree on the location where you live, around here my ring size is normal.
