Do you think I should get a bigger center stone or is this too blingy? I have been married a little while now and I have acclimated to this quite nicely. Do you think this is a small setting? Thoughts Please!

Why would you want to change it?

Maybe make the center stone bigger? If I did that, would it be obscene? I am just surrounded by bigger rings and it makes you insecure you know.

Your ring is lovely the way it is!

If you want a bigger stone (because of your own tastes and preferences, not just because friends/coworkers/neighbors have bigger ones), then you should be open to an upgrade. It’s quite common for brides to upgrade their stones — this is why most jewelers have “upgrade policies” regarding trading in your diamond for something larger, or higher color, etc. in the future.
Try not to let others make you feel insecure. Your band and setting seem to have substantial width and thickness to them, and that could be creating the illusion that your stone is smaller than it is.
Recently someone made a comment on another thread to remind us that a wedding ring is “a symbol, not an accessory.” Food for thought! 🙂

I think my answer depends on your reasons for wanting to change it…
If it’s bc you feel badly, like your center stone doesn’t measure up to those around you or something, then no, bc your ring set is gorgeous as is…
However, if you have the financial means to change the center stone and you want to do it just for you or for aesthetic reasons (e.g. think it would look better with a larger center stone) then I vote for yes, go for it! But that’s bc I always like a thicker setting with a larger stone, personally.
In short, I think your set is really gorgeous but adding a larger center stone would not detract from anything in any way and I only think you should do it if it’s for the right reasons…
Hope that helps!

I agree with Trailmix, only do it if you want to and can but not because other gals have bigger stones. I think the setting is really pretty and like that they match nicely. 😀

The ring is gorgeous the way it is. If you are just looking to add more bling…you might consider adding another band like your wedding band and sandwich the erin between them. I am planning on doing that, but I am all about the bling and I dont want my ring to look like everyone elses
