I wouldn’t change it. I think it looks perfect as it is! It’s beautifully proportioned to your hand. I also think that all the pave gives it a very glamorous sparkle! You picked this ring for a reason, don’t second guess yourself! Now it’s time to enjoy being engaged! Congrats!

If you already bought that ring, I’d stick with it since it looks gorgeous!  If you haven’t bought a ring yet, I’d go for bigger carat size only because you can get used to how a ring looks on your finger and shrinkage sets in.

@Daenaria727:  Congrats!! I think it’s really pretty, but if you guys are second-guessing it, it couldn’t hurt to go out and try on different rings and then make a decision!

Personally, I would get a larger center and forgo the side stones if I had to make a choice.  A total carat weight for a ring is a meaningless stat to me… for me, it’s all about the center stone.  But for your own ring, it’s really up to what YOU like.  Don’t forget you’ll be adding a wedding band too, so that’ll add even more bling.

@Daenaria727:  looking back on my ring, i would have gone with the bigger center stone in a less expensive setting bc the setting is always cheaper to upgrade 5 or 10 years down the road.. i am fortunate enough that my fiance has offered to upgrade my center stone and let me keep the same setting once he gets his bonus next year. go with what you feel is best!

I got the large stone and pave. You can do both. Your ring now is very pretty.
