    Bigger is bigger….I get it. But there is already enough finger coverage happening. I say leave it as is.

    I agree that thats more than enough coverage for a round. But if you’re second guessing, go with your gut

    It really depends on the mm of the stones. Even though a 4 carat weighs more it might not have much of a difference in mm, visual size, to justify the cost to the bigger carat. It looks like a big beautiful stone as it is. Remember cut is the most important C. ☺️

    As diamonds increase in carat size it takes a greater increase in carat size to see a visual difference.  3.64 to 4 should be under a 10 percent increase in face-up area so you wouldn’t see a difference.  I don’t think it would be worth the premium you’d pay to not see a noticeable difference.

    In terms of the outside world, I think anyone who sees that is going to think “holy crap that’s giant” no matter what so no, they’re not going to notice a difference.

    But it sounds like it might be a mental thing with you to hit the 4 carat mark and if you’re going to regret it, then you should go for it now while you’re still in the return window.

    It looks great and also is very big imo!  I wouldn’t go any bigger.  Looks great as is.

    I think the difference is going to be minimal. And a 3.64 ct is already huge!  People are going to look at that and think it’s a 4 ct anyways as our eyes tend to look and round off for us.  At least I think so.  LOL.  But trust me, it looks really big.

    There is definitely enough finger coverage, and it looks pretty big IMO! I think it’s lovely! and you should leave it as it =)
