I had a 1.05ctw 5-stone for several years but I sold it to a friend who liked it. It was very pretty but I don’t wear rings on my right hand and it overpowered my three stone ring when I stacked them. Every time I looked at it I wished it were an eternity so I now have an eternity with smaller diamonds. I do think that the key is to get one that is low set. MGR’s is perfect, imo.

I bought a platinum vintage 5 stone band around 1 ctw several years ago from Ivy and Rose. I wear that ring often on my left hand instead of a wedding set. When I just need to run a few errands, it's so easy to slip on and wear. I like it so much that I really hope to make a new one with better and slightly larger stones such as .35-.40 in the relatively near future. The setting is my undecided aspect, but I am leaning towards the classic Tiffany low set basket setting. To me a 5 stone is far more carefree than a full eternity. I'd be concerned all the time about grasping something a damaging stones on the palm side of my hand, especially my right hand.

1.5 ctw. might work, but 1.25 ctw is nice, too, for smaller fingers!

Here is my ~1.75 ct 5 stone on a size 7 finger. I get edge to edge coverage with fingers closed. So 1.5 should be more than enough on your much smaller finger.

It’s from IDJ and my first foray into jewelry buying after finding PS. Diamonds are PS quality and I have no complaints.

The ring is low set, substantial and very comfortable. I’ve received many compliments and DH calls it a “wall of bling”.

now that I own a few VC pieces and a couple of CVB pieces, the finishing on the IDJ piece is really starting to bother me. The milgrain is a bit uneven and the bezels are not all perfectly round. From a distance it looks great, but I might reset for something a bit more refined. No real regret, though, given the price point. Any reset will be something low again.

Mine is 2.2plus. I admired a friend’s fivestone for years and finally got mine last year. I wear it almost all the time. Love it!
