It’s probably drawing a lot of attention because people think it’s a diamond therefore expensive. It’s up to you if you want people to speculate or tell them that it’s a moissy. Personally, it looks to big for me regardless the type of stone. It’s pretty though.

It is a gorgeous ring! 🙂 Ultimately, our opinions matter very little.
If you love it, then it is the perfect ring for you! The size will turn heads for sure. Some people will assume it is real, some will assume it is not, most won’t care. I personally LOVE larger stones but find that they look weird on my finger. You have lovely hands and it looks stunning.

It looks a bit big for my taste, but that’s a matter of personal style. I have a solitaire with an F1 of the same size of yours, but my finger is a size 9.

It’s very pretty! More than likely will be assumed to be a diamond simulant because of the very large size, and unique cut. I wouldn’t let that bother me though if I liked it.
I thought they had worked out the dark centre issue with the F1 type of mossanite but I see it in the first photo?

I would definitely notice a 3 carat ring on anyone’s finger. At 3 carats, unless the person was wealthy I would assume it is not a diamond. No one I know in real life has a 3 carat solitaire stone, or even past a 1 carat solitaire for that matter. However, if you love it, then rock it! Your ring is gorgeous.

I think it looks beautiful. I love large stones. I think you’ll get used to the size wearing it for a bit. Rock the rock! 🙂

I appreciate all your opinions =). I do wish i got a 1.5 or 2 carat i didnt realize it would look this large (silly spare of the moment decision) its also set very high which i didnt expect. I brought it online from America so to get an exchange i would loose to much money.

I think it’s beautiful! It’s a very classic setting. I think a smaller stone but a very ornate setting would draw more attention. There have been some threads here on “ring shrinkage.” It might appear giant now, but you might get used to it!

It’s stunning. Are you going to pair it with a band? If so, I would with something plain to your center stone rally shines.

I think it’s beautiful. I wear a 9mm OEC (~2.7 ct from my recall) and never get questioned. That may be because I am an older Bee and perhaps more financially able to have this size. I also have a larger finger size so I feel like I pull it off…If you feel uncomfortable after a bit, maybe downsize to an 8mm. Congratulations on your engagement!

I love it! I don’t look at that and see “look at me I’m wealthy”. I just see a beautiful ring and a woman who is clearly loved!! : )

Where are you located? In America this size may not be a big deal. I’m in Australia and 1ct is seen as a substantial diamond size and most of my family, friends, and social circles would notice the ‘large rock’. Everyone would notice and do a double take if you were wearing a 3ct sized rock – I know I would check it out!
If you feel very self conscious, perhaps order another with a 1.5ct and swap them out for different occasions? It is still a very beautiful ring, it is just understandle it will attract attention
ETA: I checked your profile and it says QLD. It is completely understandable it is attracting a lot of attention here. Most rich Australian celebs (think Jen Hawkins, Bec Judd, Jesinta Campbell) have around ~2ct centre stones and rings that are worth $75-100k here. It’s a lot of money to pull off.
