I have a .85 carat Tiffany setting ring. I realise I could have got a bigger carat had we got it from a diamond dealer and not from Tiffany 🙁 I have attached the pic, do you think it looks really small? Someone at work said if its not 1 carat or more its not worth it and now I feel conscious. I am getting a bigger wedding band with diamonds so maybe that will jazz it up more?
i wish we hadn’t made the mistake of going with Tiffany as you get ripped off.

I have one question : lets pretend peoples opinions didn’t mean anything… do you like it? Dont let other ppls fucked up pre-conceived notions determine your style.
And your rock is twice as big as mine

It looks lovely.There are pros and cons to purchasing in both places. With Tiffany’s you are guaranteed of the value and quality- not always true of all diamond dealers.
One would hope that by the time we are old enough to get married, we are mature enough to be hapy with the ring we have. If size is that important , we can always upgrade when we can afford it.

Also don’t ever tell anyone your carot size. Because nothing will ever be good enough for some ppl. All that matters is that it is good enough fof you

@MsW-to-MrsM: +1. I don’t have words. Not appropriate ones anyway.

There is nothing wrong with your ring.

Who cares what you coworker says? She sounds like a jealous b—-. Like did she really say that?! Talk about no tact whatsoever. .85 to 1.00 isn’t a huge difference, anyway.
I would not say that you get “ripped off” by Tiffany. Yes, you’re paying for a name.. but surely you knew that going in. It’s really like any other luxury brand. And I bet it sparkles like crazy.
I think it looks lovely on you. And yes, you can get a blingy band because you have a classic, elegant setting.

I think it looks great. It doesn’t look “small” at all and a diamond wedding band will definitely jazz it up more. Congratulations on your beautiful ring!

Do you like it? That’s what matters.
More than anything, though, it bothers me how PPs are getting their feathers ruffled over her insecurities. OP’s feelings are valid, especially soon after the negative comments from her coworker.

That person at work sounds like a jerk.
I don’t think it looks small, it’s actually a very nice size on your hands. It definitely wouldn’t get mistaken for a promise ring… Plus you can have confidence in the quality of the stone and setting and they will help if you have a problem. If it reeeally bothers you, and you think your fiancé would be amenable, you could bring it very gently. I think the ring is gorgeous and would probably leave it, but I do think that you should get to love your ring.

your ring is really pretty & i’d be happy to have that size ring (though i’m happy to have my ~1/2 ct ring, too). you are going to probably get some responses you won’t like by posting this here, just as a warning. this kind of thing doesn’t go over well here.

If you go through life letting others’ comments make you self-conscious, you will go through life feeling insecure all the time. What your co-worker thinks has no bearing on a gift given to you out of love.
I think your ring’s beautiful. The Tiffany Solitaire’s gorgeous, the size looks great on your hand, plus it’ll look awesome with the blingy band you’re considering.
