    FutureMrsBond:  That’s a gorgeous ring! One carat on your finger size will look amazing. 🙂

    FutureMrsBond:  I think that ring is beautiful.  But the only way to know if you like it is to try it.  Internet opinions aren’t really all that valid on something so personal.  

    Try it out and see if YOU like it

    I think a one carat would look lovely if not a little big on such a small finger size! I think it’s a little weird that you don’t want to keep the ring he proposed with and are upgrading even before the wedding, but hey, you have to wear it for life!

    one carat will look quite big on a 3.75!

    Emerald cuts tend to appear smaller than their round/oval counterparts of the same size. Though carat weight is one of personal perference, I think 1.5ct would like perfect on your finger size…but you may find it too big. I advise going into some stores to try them on or order some cheap CZ rings from amazon for sampling.

    FutureMrsBond:  So have you upgraded from a promise ring to this current emerald to possibly a new emerald? Just curious, do you keep them all or trade in?

    i think 1 carat on such little fingers might be alittle too much, but then I have a emeraldcut trilogy platinum ring, possibly like the one you are replacing, so I’m a little biased

    I just wanted to say I was measured as a size 4 by a jeweler, and 1 carat looks small on me because I have scary long skinny witch fingers, and overall giant skinny man hands. So I suggest you go to a jewelry store and just try on a few rings and see what looks good on you, that way you make sure you’re happy with it. What if you get 1 carat and still think it looks small? It takes no time and you don’t have to buy anything, it’s just shopping, go try some on 🙂

    It also depends on your definition of big and exactly how you want it to look on your finger. You can say you want (Insert size) all day long but it really depends on your budget. If budget isint an issue I think a 1.5-2 carat solitare would look amazing. Or what about putting a halo on the 1 carat?  I have a size 4 finger with 2 carat center with halo and think it’s perfect, but I’m sure many would think it’s too blingy for my finger size. It’s really a matter of personal preferAnce. Go try some on!

    Ive seen some gorgeous big stones on the Bee but they would look silly on my size 2.5 finger. I have 1/3 carat centre stone which on my finger looks more like .5 – .65 which I think suits my finger perfectly. You should definitely try a 1 carat on and see how it suits you

    If you want it to look significantly bigger, maybe go for a cushion or radiant cut? I will say that I have a friend who has an emerald cut and I think it looms bigger than mine. She has a 1.0 emerald cut and I have a 1.3 asscher. Its all in the cut. You can find an emerald cut with a larger table ratio. Look on http://www.pricescope.com for perfect specks for an emerald!
