Diamond Size on Hand of a 0.35 Carat Diamond
The ring shown in the picture is a US size six; this is the same as an L 1/2 ring size in places like Britain and Australia. The woman's hand pictured has quite long and slender fingers - which may not be what yours look like - if they're not, bear in mind that a diamond engagement ring may present quite differently on your finger. The apparent size of the diamond and ring can be affected by whether you have thick or thin fingers, and also depends on their length. If you are stressed about the cost of diamonds but are still really set on getting one, here's one piece of good news - the diamonds often appear bigger once put on a woman's hand, especially in cases where her hand is small and petite.
