The pic is hard to see, but in short, no. I wouldn’t look down upon somebody just because if the size of their ring.

Bored6:  oh gosh no! Your ring is stunning! Don’t let anyone tell you it’s not. I love how delicate small rings are. plus, you don’t have to worry about it gettin in the way of daily activities or looking too gaudy. What I’m trying to say is having a “smaller” ring has it’s advantages and you should wear it with pride ! 🙂 hope this helped

No I would not, I think your ring is lovely. Personally, I appreciate a nice modest diamond over an ostentatious sim. any day.

Nope, not at all. Coming from someone who has a large-ish stone, I love smaller rings. Large stones are a pain to keep clean, they snag on things, etc. There’s just something so timeless and dainty about a “small” engagement ring.

No not at all! The Bee tends to bring out this kind of emotion because many threads feature larger stones but jewelry is personal and needs to be suited to your individual taste and lifestyle. You loved that ring for a reason so do not get caught up in comparisona . Enjoy it – it is a gorgeous ring! If u feel u want more bling get a diamond wedding band or anniversary band  to complement it but you have no reason to doubt yourself.

The best advice anyone ever gave me was “what other people think of you is not your business”. Some people judge, some people are rude, some people would kill to have a beautiful diamond ring on their finger. As long as you are happy, that’s all that matters, right?

FWIW, I think your ring is gorgeous

Do you really care if anyone looks down on you for the size of your ring? Do you have something to prove? 

Honestly, anyone who has that kind of attitude is status obsessed and not someone I’d be spending time with anyway.

Somebody will always have negative comments no matter what you do in this life. It is impossible to please everyone, so in this case you might as well please yourself. 

If people look down on you because your diamonds are small, they are idiots and not worth your time.

When my husband replaced my smaller engagement ring with a larger one, I received so many comments such as “I like this one better. The other one was too small.” Nice huh? I just shrugged it off.

Bored6:  of course not! Anyone who would isn’t worth worrying about. 

Only thing that matters is that you love it.

Bored6:  of course not!  That’s just rude for people to do such a thing and in general, it’s quality over quantity.  Yours is a sparkler.  My boss has a ring and the prongs are basically larger than the diamond and isn’t very sparkly either so it’s not a very high quality diamond from what I can tell.

Bored6:  Honestly before I got engaged I rarely looked at other ladies rings. You should feel blessed that you have found the love of your life, there are some people praying hard to find a man who will give them a ring.  Most people will not look down on you, and if someone does.. it just shows their character. Just keep in mind that someone could have the biggest stone, yet be very unhappy in their marriage.

No way!  Some of us don’t have the means to have even small rings.  I would hope that no one would look down on anyone.  Unfortunately,  it does happen.  By looking at your ring I see two things.  1. Someone loves you. 2. I see someone that shouldn’t worry what others thing.  Your ring is beautiful.   I love it.
