Size Does Matter...But Not Exclusively!

Although diamond size often takes center stage when considering engagement rings, it should not become the sole deciding factor when picking out one for yourself or someone else. A perfect engagement ring size depends on several considerations such as

  • The style preferences of partner(s)
  • Finger size preferences of yourself/the wearer of the ring
  • Budget considerations
  • Overall design considerations of engagement ring

Navigating with a Carat Compass

what size diamond for engagement ring? Traditionally, one-carat diamonds were considered the standard. Today, however, more diverse diamonds with smaller carat weights are becoming popular as per modern trends:

Subtle Sparkle

Diamonds below 0.5 carats, like those featured in our Delicate Halo Engagement Rings, offer sophisticated yet charming sparkle. Perfect for minimalist aesthetics or budget-minded approaches.

Achieve The Golden Mean

Half-carat to one-carat diamonds such as those found in our Cushion Diamond Side Halo Engagement Ring Gold are an elegant balance between elegance and sparkle; making a timeless statement at once. They create the ideal setting to make this timeless statement!

Make an impression

For those wanting a bolder look, diamonds of one carat or greater - like our Halo Diamond Engagement Ring White Gold collection - can make a powerful statement of brilliance that demands notice and appeals to those who appreciate beauty in all forms. They demand attention while satisfying those seeking unrivaled splendor!

Beyond the Carat Constellation

Keep this in mind when purchasing diamonds: diamond size is not only one element to take into consideration; here are other indicators:

  • Finger Size: A smaller stone might look larger when set onto a slim finger; conversely, an excessively large diamond could overshadow petite hands and become overwhelming.
  • Setting and Style: Certain designs such as halos or side stones may make smaller diamonds appear larger; take into consideration what aesthetic you desire when considering this option.
  • Personality and Lifestyle: Select a size that reflects both of these aspects for optimal results. If your partner works an active job, for instance, selecting something smaller may prove more suitable.
