Hi all, first time user here. I would love to get your thoughts on this ring we bought for our anniversary. It’s 2.5 carats with an 8.5 mm diameter. With the bezel setting it’s 10 mm. My ring size for reference is 4.25. I was surprised by how large the ring turned out and think it’s actually too big for my taste. Before I head back to the jewelry to see about downsizing I would like to here what others think. Too big and flashy or tasteful? I would love to see your rings if you have a similar bezel setting. Thank you!

TBH, bezel is not for me. It looks a little tacky.

I think it’s beautiful and doesn’t look too big at all! The clean simple lines of the bezel are perfect for that stone!

Its very large and bit chunky for my tastes.

I really like it, it’s too big for me personally but I think the bezel helps it to not be too overwhelming.

peggysuewedding : It’s incredible and I love it. Classic and tasteful but also bold and blingy. It looks great on your finger.

I think if you’re questioning it, then it’s not right. Internet strangers’ opinions matter very little when it comes to a type of setting or size. People have very different tastes when it comes to those two things.
I didn’t question the ring he picked (with guidance).
I don’t think you love this ring.
Personally, I think bezels need a smaller stone to lay closer to flat with the band. The bigger the carat, the more height (with a round). The cone effect seems odd to me.
If you like a big stone, then a different setting. Big rounds have height, so if you don’t like the height, a different cut may be better.

It sounds like your gut instinct says “too big”. What size did you have before? I love bezels and have the same finger size. I would probably only wear a ring that size for special events. It would feel too clunky to me(but I prefer smaller rings).
Do you have some time to wear it and get a feel for it?

I LOVE IT! I love bezel set rings. Mine is a 1ct white hammered gold. Would loooove one the size of yours.
