SO, I am trying to decide between getting a 8mm or an 8.5mm stone. ALL other things considered which would you chose?

My ring size is a 4 and I want to set it in a solitaire. My hands are VERY small almost child like. I LOVE BLING though, but I don't want it to look absurd.

Would you really see a visual difference? Especially if you aren't seeing the stone side by side

thanks for any help or input

just give you a visual my diamond is approx. 7.7mm the Metal type halo around my diamond makes this a total of 9mm, my ring size is 4.75. I don't think this looks too large at all... You'll find that you'll get used to the size very quickly. so if 8.5mm is in your budget I'd go for it :love: but it also depends on how you want to set it, I might feel personally that 8.5mm might be a bit too large for me, if I were to diamond halo it (but that's just me) others feel just fine wearing their 4 ct with a halo. Its all about how comfortable you will feel wearing it.

I vote 8.5 mm, hands down. I wear a size 5 (more like 4.75), and I have a 9.8 mm -- not too big at all! [emoji4]

I've read that anything wider than the your ring finger nail is when a stone starts to look "too big"... I don't know if I agree with that, but whatev. [emoji39]
