forthesoul :  I was engaged at 24 and my ring center stone is a little over 1 carat. My side stones equal about .25 carats in total.

I got engaged at 26 and my center stone is just under 3ct, 1.5 ct sidestones – it is a family ring, not something he purchased. My ring is not typical for my friend group, though, and I don’t wear it every day.

Is 28 still considered a young bee haha

My center diamond is 3.2 carats, total weight of about 4.2. The ring is definitely large, but given the fact we live in a big city like SF, I don’t think it’s that rare. When we vacation, we get a lot more stares just because I know diamond rings aren’t that big in Europe or Asia.

In our friend group, I think I generally see diamonds around 1.5 carats.

The cost wasn’t beyond our means, and I truly love it

haghenveien :  she said it in her post, none of her friends are married, this is a wedding forum. Ever consider it might just be fun to gab about wedding stuff with women who are doing the same? Sheesh, grab a glass of wine and chill a little. enjoy life!

Mine is a 2 carat center weight oval diamond with 1/4 diamonds on the side and a small halo…I love it, I think it’s the perfect size for me personally, but it truly all depends on your preference!

I was first engaged at 20, and my ring was 0.5 carats Canadian diamond VS1, G color… then we broke up.

I was next engaged at 27 with a 1.5 carat diamond, which I later upgraded to a 2+ , but I still have the original e-ring he proposed with 🙂

Engaged at 23 and married at 24. My diamond set is a little over a carat total (.5 carat stone), but I also have a 1.5 carat equivalent moissanite set that I wear every now and then since I don’t always want to wear something pave. I think they’re both good sizes.

Im very amused by all the late 20’s Bees with 2-3 carat rings posting in this thread. 

I was engaged at 24 with a 1.2c diamond center ring.
