So I snoop around here every once in a while and have posted a few times. Now, I finally have a ring to show off. I want you all to guess the carat size of my RB... and I am asking for a reason (trying to win an argument with my fiancee ;)) . Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. We still need to take some pretty shots of my ring!

What size ring do you wear? I am guessing 1.25 ct. It's very pretty BTW.

Can I tell you that? That might be cheating haha. Thank you, the stone is from High Performance Diamonds which I had never heard of before.

I would guess the same...about 1.2ct. Looks like you have very slender fingers. Lucky you! It's a beautiful ring!

No, no. Nobody's going to say anything negative about your ring in SMTB, regardless of where the setting came from. No need to worry there! No criticisms in SMTB.

My guess is the outlier, so apparently I have no idea what I'm talking about!

Who knows? Maybe you are the closest... or maybe not...

I would also guess 1.2 on an average size hand (5.5-6.5) but your hands look small, so I say .9-1.0. It's very hard to guess carat weight from a picture without knowing ring size. It's a beautiful ring--congratulations!

So coy and sneaky, I love it!

Now I really want to know how much your stone weighs! I guessed so low because your hand looks TINY!

I'm going to guess a little over a carat - maybe 1.15? Hard to say without knowing ring size, since that affects finger coverage. It looks substantial on your finger, whatever the carat weight, and looks very pretty on you!

Thank you :) I think it looks bigger in pictures than it does in person.

1.35....but you really should post your ring size, otherwise it's a shot in the dark.

Ring size 4.5
Ok, then I say 1.12

I forgot to say how pretty it was the first time! :))

On a 4.5 finger which is below the average ring size, since it appears to be a 1.1-1.2 on the average finger, I'm guessing its 0.8.
But no one in the real world judges in that sense, so if this is an argument between you and your fiance about it being or looking too small, don't worry because it looks great on you! If I'm completely wrong and you found this offensive, please don't take it the wrong way. You have a gorgeous ring and I'm sure I speak for the PS community when I say, take more pics!!!
