I’d keep wearing it. As you say, it means the world to you, and it sounds like it was expensive to him.

My fingers aren’t as small as yours.. but they’re pretty small (5.5) and I have a 1.33 carat diamond in a halo… I don’t think it’s too big.

You sure you’re not overthinking this? Your ring is average sized… not too big, not too small.

@MrsViolin:  I have a size 4 finger… I dont feel my e-ring looks or feels too big or unpractical.

I understand feeling too showy or what not.. but this is YOUR ring 🙂 It will always be the ring he proposed with. Dont feel that way. Wear it and love it. When I first got engaged in November 2012, I stared at my ring non-stop. Thought about it non-stop. Now at almost the year mark- It has become more normal. Hopefully how you feel will wear off and your ring will just feel “normal.”

@MrsViolin:  i would keep it, take it off when you’re in the lab, and remember – soon you’ll have the band, and you can wear that when you’re in the lab! 

i’d hold on to it – you will get used to it and it sounds like you love the ring and what it represents.

@canarydiamond:  her ring is likely average by american standards, but by german standards is probably quite generous 🙂

@MrsViolin:  Could you talk to a jeweler about incorperating the gold from the ring and the stone into a necklace?  It might not feel as odd to wear that size stone as a necklace and might actually get worn more often since you work in a lab.
