For the ladies in their mid twenties (or were engaged in their mid twenties) how many carats is your ring?
I am just curious what the average carat size for someone around my age. None of my friends are married to even ask them.

I got engaged at 25 and my engagement has a 1 Ct equivalent sapphire centerstone. And I think the side diamonds are 1/4 Ct each.

Mine is a Neil Lane 1 ctw double halo. Center diamond is a .33 princess cut.

Boyfriend or Best Friend and I just picked out a stone and it is a 2ct radiant.
Radiants have more going on at the bottom than a round brillaint, so has the same mm coverage as a smaller carat round.
Amongst my friends (26-28) those engaged generally have just on or a bit less than a carat. One exception is my bestie who has the most stunning three stone oval ring at .25, .5, .25. She only wears very dainty jewellery and it’s on a 1mm band and is just breathtaking.
Point is there is no real “average” – just different preferences and priorities.

Engaged at 28 with 1.25ct round brilliant diamond. The band is maybe only 0.11tcw.

forthesoul : I got engaged at 25 with a 1.5 carat cushion.
According to a quick Google search, the average age of marriage is 27 for women and the average carat size is .9 carats, so I would expect women getting engaged in their mid 20s to have around that size. I do think it depends a lot on where you’re from though. Hope that helps!

Engaged at 21 and a ring of 0.7 tcw with a 0.5 center, I’ve wondered about this question too cause I literally don’t know anyone else who is engaged! I hope you don’t mind a little ring porn haha I can’t help it, I just love this thing too much!

mrscb2bee : Can I ask what the width of your band is? Your ring is so beautiful. I’m currently trying to decide between diamonds in the band or plain. Thank you!

forthesoul : Excuse me but why do you care about that? Your future husband is not going to love you more because of that, nor your marriage is going to be any happier. So, you shouldn’t care about the carats in your or in other people’s rings.

I got engaged at 25 with a 1.2 center radiant in a halo. TCW is a little over 3 carats.

When I got engaged, I was 26 yo. I have a Tacori Dantela in platinum with a round cut center diamond and cushion-shaped halo (I couldnt decide what shape I liked more, so I guess you could say I technically got both lol).
With the center being 1.7 carats + customized pave setting, the TCW is just over 2 carats.
