Thanks for the link. But when I click on it, it is set at 90% for page visibility. Should it be set at 100%? Just curious Then it would mean the stones are bigger! hehe

mine defaults to 77.3. . . I think it depends on what you were viewing at in Adobe last time you used it.
I would assume it should be at 100%

This is a great link that gives you an idea of what each carat size would look like on your finger.

These charts can be good for getting a rough idea of carat weigh and how it translates to size, but bear in mind that the actual spread of an individual diamond can vary. For example, some diamonds are cut very deep or shallow and can look small or large for their weight. So it is important when choosing a diamond to take note of the diameter measurements, if you are buying a 1 carat diamond, you want it to look like a 1 carat diamond! With fancy shaped diamonds such as pears, emerald cuts or Radiants, Princess etc, this can be more difficult to judge as cut quality with fancy shapes can vary tremendously.
