We all visualize the perfect jewellery piece for us, but sometimes we have to adapt our fantasies. Gemstone sizes are frequently under or overestimated, and many people often reconsider what they want once they see the different sizes and settings in person. We always recommend going to a jeweller to view different options before placing an order and choosing stores that are able to show you a range of your preferred gemstones. Not every jewellery store has diamond alternatives of 1 carat and over, so make sure you do your research beforehand.
Sometimes, it isn’t feasible to go to certain jewellers in person, or you may need to make specialist bookings before making your journey. In that case, make the most of the vast resources on the internet to be as informed as possible on gemstone sizes and settings. We, like many other sites, have a library of video demonstrations showcasing different pieces worn on models with measurements displayed, so you can compare them with your current jewellery. In our latest video, you can view a gemstone set in a ring, with sizes ranging from 3mm to 9mm. The model wears a 53 (European)/ 6.5 (US) ring size, which in our experience is the most common one. Many online jewellers are able to provide you with videos and photos on request, so don’t be afraid to contact your preferred stores if you'd like a viewing.
We believe that our video helps you to choose the correct size and find the perfect size for you.
