I think quality is important over quantity. It sounds like you have a very good diamond… it’ll sparkle more and look bigger than some larger ones of less quality.

It’s too bad you’re starting to feel a bit self conscious about it, but if you truly love it, why change it?

If my FI were doing that, I’d be so annoyed lol. Buy me something and then criticize it making me feel insecure, so I go and find a new setting I love… and then get told it looks weird. Argh!!

I know some ladies on here have re-set their solitaires in halos and are very happy – try doing a search, there have definitely been a few posts on it lately.

I think you should just give it some time, make sure it’s what you really want. I’m in the camp of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Do you want to have your stone reset in a bigger setting , or have a larger stone put in your current setting/ semi mount?

Mine is a split shank with a double halo and .30 centre stone. Forgive the terrible pic. My centre diamond is of very good quality as well, VS1 and is just a little star on my finger :0) Is this the style you want?

if it aint broke, why make yourself broke trying to fix it!

Everyone I know has experienced some level of ring shrinkage – where your ring seems smaller to you after awhile.  If you love your ring now, I would keep it as it is.  It sounds like it is a great quality diamond and I am sure it sparkles like crazy.

Do you think your FI was feeling you out to see if you were still in the quality vs size camp?  He could have been looking for reassurance that you have the ring you really want. There are some who would love a big ring regardless of the quality and some that would love a good quality diamond and give up size.

*sigh* Its awful that he planted that seed of doubt. How unhappy are you? I would maybe wait and see if the doubt goes away… Plus, there is always the emotional part that you will be changing the ring that he proposed with 🙁

For sentimentality purposes, you are still keeping your original diamond. The men who love us only want to make us happy. If you would be happier resetting, I don’t see why not. We think we are going to hurt the man’s feelings, but only we put soooo much importance on the actual ring itself whereas our men put the importantance on what the ring symbolizes. I say, it’s a perfect compromise to keep your original diamond and reset it to your liking.
