I think it will look great, I love that second one!

I have a 0.61ct on a 7.5 finger and I think the ring coverage is perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

@avamacbeth:  How pretty! 

I don’t think a half carat looks small on anyone, no matter how large their hands may be. Tasteful and classic, sure, but not too small at all.

I really like the second one. I have a size 7 with a .53 carat solitaire with side accents and it has the perfect amount of finger coverage. Plus there is enough room for two sparkly wedding bands or a anniversary band.

My ring is a .75 equivalent and my ring size is 7.5. When I first got my ring I thought the stone was huge, and some days when it’s sparkling like crazy. I still think it does look huge, haha.

@avamacbeth:  A half carat is not small and I love the two rings you posted!

I have 0.43 carats on a size 10.25 hand. It’s on the smaller side, but it’s not tiny. I still really like it five years later.

I don’t think so! Mine is a .40 carat solitaire and my finger size is (according to the jeweler) a 4.5. I think a half on a size 8 would be a great size.

@avamacbeth:  I think it will be fine, here is my rhr .42 ct solitaire diamond on size 7 1/4 (left hand) finger. Lots of girls have large simulants such as moissanite/Cz/Asha, you could get a bigger look for much less if it doesn’t have to be a real diamond. Not advocating that as think quality over quantity is better but just throwing the idea out there.
