    TrueLove407:  get the upgraded band and stack it with your original set. Or swap it out with your original plain band. But do keep the original size engagement ring. 1.5 is plenty large enough, IMHO, and looks great on your finger!

    I agree with the PP. I think the 1.5 looks really large and an even bigger stone might not look fantastic. Go with the blingy band!

    I voted for the blingy band because your stone is big as it is.  A blingy band will jazz it up.

    I would go for the band, then if down the road you truly decide to upgrade you can, but I’d go with a band to do the stack and see if that changes your mind about your stone.

    You’re suffering from ring shrinkage.  We all contract it at some point.  IMO, go for the band.  Then you can stack your plain wedding band with your new blingy band.

    Blingy band for sure!! Once center stones start getting too big, they start to look gaudy imo. Your stone looks beautiful right now, and would be highlighted by a beautiful band.

    I like your e-ring at its current size; it’s beautiful. The band is a better idea.
