@avamacbeth:  Haha I was thinking they looked very similar! But the center stone looked like two different shapes so I wasn’t sure.

@avamacbeth:  Thank you 🙂 I love the detailing on your setting, and I love rounds 😉

@avamacbeth:  That’s a beautiful setting!! I love the simplicity of it but then a little extra fancy on the sides hehe Mine has similar side detail and I love it! I have a 0.58 on a 7 finger and it doesn’t seem too small at all! 

 

Adding a couple pics to show the similarity and size reference even though mine isn’t round 🙂

@avamacbeth:  I wear an 8.5 and a half carat would be too small for my personal taste. You should go try rings on because it may change your opinion!!

I agree with pp. I am a size 7 and half a carat would be far too small for me. That being said I think it’s hard to judge from photos online. Go to a store and try on different sizes. Even go to Nordstrom rack or somewhere and try on fake costume bling and see what sizes you like. I wouldn’t put too much stock in making decisions based on photos.

It could probably work depending on what type of band or bands you get with it. I wear a size 9.5 and my finger would suck up .50 carat.  It is almost sucking up 1.01 caratsbut the bands I have chosen make it work.

Sorry it’s not a nice picture…I only have my cell phone. Mine is a 5mm (.5ct equiv) round brilliant on a size 4 finger.
