It’s beautiful! Go with what you like, you’re the one wearing it… not them.

The ring certainly looks gorgeous, and I would not worry at all about the size.

HOWEVER.. I would be concerned about buying it sight unseen as the diamonds are low in clarity (I1-I2) and you may be able to see very visible flaws. This may not bother you, but I know for me it was a major issue.

Some I1s are fairly eye clean from a distance, others have horrid carbon spots that spoil the whole look of the ring. If you have tried it on, all well and good, but if you are ordering online make sure they have a good return policy in case you cannot cope with any inclusions.

Sorry to sound a bit of a downer, I love the look of the ring you have chosen very much.

It looks gorgeous and not to small at all. Just like someone mentioned above maybe do some window shopping around first & look at rings with that same clarity. Then buy them if you still feel good about it. My ring is 1/5 carat and its a solitaire. But I don’t ever feel like its to small its perfect for me, the wearer! πŸ™‚ As long as YOU love it then that is all that matters!!!!!! πŸ™‚

It’s funny that you bring this up…

Last weekend we were visiting family and surprisingly we ran into a guy I used to work with and his new fiancee at a garage sale. I had never met her before, but I knew they were engaged because he and I are friends on FB. I, of course, immediately asked to see her ring, which was absolutely beautiful. Even though it was significantly smaller than my ring, I did not look down on him or her or think I was better than them because we chose a larger diamond. I was just thrilled that they are engaged and in love, and very happy that she has a ring she loves. 

Get what you love… A ring is a symbol of your commitment to each other, not a symbol of your bank account… Anyone who judges you or looks down on you because of your ring isn’t worth you time or your worry.

It’s gorgeous!! go for it! As I’ve said before, I’ve longed for both, bigger rings and smaller rings than mine…  I consider my ring to be very big, but it’s actually small compared to what many bees seem to have, lol… However, what I think is what count.  My SIL has a tiny engagement ring and I can’t help but stare at it all the time! seriously! It’s a very thin band with six or seven tiny diamonds forming some sort of flower.. It’s absolutely gorgeous and sooo sparkly and delicate… Also. in my country is kinda dangerous to go walking with expensive jewelry anyway…  truth be told, I’d be happy with a bigger ring or a smaller ring, as long as I love the style… but to be absolutely honest, to everyday wear, I would have love smaller (I don’t use my ring for work, or daily shopping) Bigger stones most times mean more expensive, sure, but that’s all it means. I can love the same a small ring or a big one…

So don’t worry about it. The ring you like is absolutely gorgeous!
