Hi all, this is my first post here. I’m not engaged yet, but have a ring that my boyfriend and I will likely use for our engagement (resetting the stone). I don’t know how many carats or even the cut (maybe cushion??), but I’m wondering if it looks too big on me. I have a 4.5 ring size and have modest taste in jewelry so I don’t want to have anything TOO blingy! What are everyone’s thoughts? Thank you!

Welcome! I don’t think it is to big, I think it is a very nice size. Do you know what setting you are going to use when you reset the stone? I would love to see your ideas!

I think it looks perfect. A substantial and beautiful looking stone!

@Inlove86: I think it’s the perfect size. The center stone is beautiful. It will look amazing on a thin band! If you’re concerned about being too “blingy”, steer clear of halos and just set it as an elegant solitaire.

Oh wow, I love that. If you have the stone already, use it!!

As long as it’s a solitaire setting, you can avoid the “too big” issue.

I think it is beautiful! If you like modest jewelry, put it in a simple and “lower” setting and it will be perfect. Stones tend to shrink as you get used to them, so it will probably grow nicely on you : )

Thank you everyone for the comments! I’m really glad to hear everyone’s opinions. I love the stone and was also thinking a solitaire on a thin band, probably white gold. Here are a couple links of what I’m picturing might look nice.
some of these have little side stones but don’t seem to blingy. I’ve also thought about a 3 stone ring because I think they’re gorgeous, but again I’m not sure sure if it would be too much. Here are a couple links:
And thanks again for all the comments! Definitely helpful! 🙂

Great choices! It will be hard choosing just one. I am kind of partial to three stone rings, as I have one. However, your choice of solitaire settings are gorgeous. I really like the first and third tacori setting. When you find out the carat weight and cut, please update and let us know!

I like the first Tacori you posted. Simple, with just a little somethin’ extra! The stone is lovely!
