I get what you’re saying!  I love mine on my own finger but sometimes my FI will put it on his finger (it doesn’t go all the way down, not even close) and it looks HUGE on him!  I think it’s just seeing it from a different perspective, or seeing what it looks like when it’s farther away.

lol, no. Though sometimes I’ve had that experience on my own finger. sometimes I’m like “man, we should have went bigger” (he wanted to, I didn’t). And then other times I’m like “man, it looks so big!” 😛

I have a size 5 finger with a .61 carat

this happened to me yesterday. I had the girl at the jewelry store try on a band so I could see it from farther away. I thought it looked HUGE on her. But on me it just looks normal.

It’s starting to look bigger actually! My first had a halo, and the ring shrinkage was real. But when I switched to a solitaire, it looked small and now that I’m getting used to it, it’s looking bigger. I have a size 4 finger, but really short fingers. I’ve noticed that rings on long, thin fingers tend to look bigger.

I have days where I think mine looks giant, other days it looks tiny.  It’s a 0.5ct with a halo tcwt is 0.79 – today’s a day where i think it looks on the smaller side – my hands are also puffy today and that’s probably part of it.

I think mines looks a lil small on my hand. But when other people comment on it, they always say how big it looks.

I find when I look at my hand, sometimes it can look small. But if I look at my hand in the mirror (like when I’m brushing my teeth or something) I always think “Wow my ring looks huge!”

I love my ring, but sometimes I look at it and think it looks giant and other times i’m like “it’s kinda average or small sized” it’s .76 carat with a halo on my size 4.5 finger so it’s in no way small for my hand. I think maybe we just get used it and sometimes it looks larger or smaller depending on the how the light is reflecting off ot it?? maybe? I guess it doesn’t look small because whenever I mention to someone its under a carat they are really shocked

I think mine looks small even though my fingers aren’t big, then I see a similar size on others and feel they look good. I guess that’s a ‘shrinkage’ issue.

I think my ring is way bigger than what I imagined. But the wrap makes it seem bigger, and it’s a higher setting. And then when other people try it on, it seems really little. Perhaps that’s because my hands are shorter than theirs see.

I think it’s a case of the grass always look greener on the other side. The same size ring on another person may look bigger than what you have on your own hand, all things equal!
