@Melithehoneybee:  I don’t think there will be any way to make a 2.5ct diamond look small! The setting is gorgeous. But you can definitely simplify! Maybe even just thin the setting out slightly so the stone is more showcased?

If you have long fingers, ovals will give you great finger coverage! I have average length fingers but skinny/size 4 and a 1.5 carat oval was totally overwhelming. From the CAD, the setting looks really busy but the picture you posted is so beautiful and sparkly. You can also change your setting, so don’t worry. Just wait for your ring to come and I bet you’ll fall in love with it 🙂

I think it looks STUNNING! Especially if you have long, thin fingers… It will be incredible as-is!

I agree, it will look great for finger coverage! I tried on a 1.7 on my baby hands with size 4 fingers – it looked like a fake cocktail ring. I also agree with PP that if you want a simpler setting, that’s an easy fix.

gorgeous! What about just the solitare, no side stones?

@MichiganGirl24:  I agree! I’m a sucker for a classic solitaire, especially a large oval. Maybe with a little extra bling on the band? Some ideas…

 @Melithehoneybee:  YESYESYES to Blake Lively’s setting! One of my absolute favourites 🙂 Also Rebecca Romijn has a beautiful set.
