I’m in love with the conceot of this gorgeous engagement ring my fiance picked out for me. We’ve already purchased the setting and have a 2 ct center stone ready to get set. It is quite pretty, but after trying it on, I feel it sticks up way too high and not only that, it’s quite large in diameter, even on my size 6 finger (I also have pretty big/long man hands lol). It sticks up 11 mm and is 15 mm in diameter. But now I’m having doubts of it being too gaudy 🙁 I am grateful for the ring, but at the same time am worried about the reactions I will get when wearing it. I want to be able to wear my ring everyday, but I feel this is more of a cocktail ring for special occasions. The semi mount setting can be returned, but I just feel bad because of all the work/time/dreaming that went into making this ring. Here’s a youtube video of the ring:
Any reassurance/constructive criticism is appreciated.

Well first of all I think it’s a gorgeous ring. Beautiful, lots of bling and unique to boot. For me, I would have a hard time with it only because I am super awkward and would bang it into things all the time. However, if you have a modicum of grace (which is more than I have) you’ll be fine :-).

@693bee27: i think it’s a beautiful ring, just stunning. i love it.
based on the size and shape of it though, i don’t think it’s practical to wear every day. i do love bling, lots of it and i would only wear this on special occasions as a cocktail ring. it depends on your every day life though.
may i suggest that you set your 2ct diamond as a solitaire or other suitable setting and put your favourite gemstone in this flower setting as use it as a cocktail ring for special occasions.

It’s definitely a stunning ring, but I would find it much too large to wear on a day-to-day basis.

Thanks guys (for the compliments)! I do think it is really pretty, just wish it was appropriate for everyday. That being said, knowing the “hands on” type of person I am, most likely I won’t wear it every single day when I’m burying my hands in kneading pizza dough (maybe during the honeymoon phase, lol). I’ll post pictures when it’s finally set with the stone. And maybe get some suggestions on wedding band ideas? Thanks!

That ring is gorgeous, its even prettier than the video. I see what you mean about not being able to wear everyday, especially if you are gonna have your hand in dough. But it is really pretty, especially the side view!

OMG. That is beautiful!!! Can you do a really thin band on either side? (I’m a sucker for balance.)
