slw0546340:  1.5 carats + a halo is going to look very large, unless you have really big fingers.  I personally would find it much too big, but it’s really a personal decision, and no one else’s opinions really matter.  I don’t know if I agree that people’s opinions would differ if you were older–a big ring is a big ring, regardless of age.

Your e-ring is not too big. 

Your friend just doesn’t like large stones, apparently. Other people may think it’s too big, but they’re not wearing it, so their opinion doesn’t matter all. If you like the ring, that’s all that matters

The only reasonable advice there is when it comes to something like this is to accept that everyone isn’t going to like your ring, and that there isn’t anything that needs be ‘done’ about it. They said what they think, you heard it, you don’t agree and aren’t going to change your ring.

honestly, who cares what people think? if you love it, he loves it, that is all that matters. I do agree that if you were older and more established, people wouldn’t blink an eye. But they probably don’t know that he inherited the diamond. But it’s not really anyone else’s business. I have a 1.5 carat round with a halo. And it’s not too big on my hand. 

ETA: I am sure everyone would love to see a picture of your beauty!

I go through the same exact thing! I have a 2 carat in a halo setting. I made sure to Instagram my ring with the official GIA certification in the bg haha, which I do NOT advise doing because yes, it’s tacky, although it did make me feel 1000x better at the time. People will always say things, but if you love it then who cares 🙂 I’m a size 5 and I have never thought “this is too big”. Obviously if you work in a field where having a big ring would get in the way, I’d re-consider. But otherwise, wear it proudly and enjoy it 🙂

I’d need to see a picture, but it don’t think 1.5 with a halo is too large automatically.  everyone has opinions. Listen to the people you trust and your own judgement. Plus, this is an inherited stone. I have a few, and when anyone comments on the size, I just smile and say it belonged to so and so.

slw0546340:  I don’t think that’s too big at all. I don’t even really like that style of ring, yet I think yours is absolutely gorgeous. 

Your ring is fine. Others can dislike it all they want — it’s not on their finger.
