So it’s official I’m a brat so don’t bother calling me one I own it! Lol so my new ring I’ve tried as some of you know to get over the fact that j am unhappy with the size……I can’t I want it bigger. Same style same everything one size bigger. I am embarrassed I probably should be but we didn’t know how the half carat would look in the halo and we picked it out together. My fiancé wants me happy doesn’t care that I want it bigger but is worried about how is friend will take it. He sold us the diamond and I was already Bratty I changed my mind about the design ect so question
should I go to a different Jareds lol
should I wait for an anniversary and upgrade
should I just tell the truth we didn’t realize what the half carat would look like with the halo and he want one size up .70-1carat
mean bees fly away lol

If the only worry is about “upsetting” the friend do it now and go back to him. If you go to another branch and return it the friend may lose his sale (because it was “returned”) and now a new person helps you.
I would go back to the original friend have a bigger stone put in it.

I guess I’d just go back to the original friend. He already knows you were indecisive/bratty or whatnot before, so he already thinks whatever he thinks. May as well go back again if you think it’ll make you happy.

Don’t worry about the friend, in the jewelry business people change their mind all the time… so they should be able to handle it.

Good luck. If the ring was designed around the center stone you might run into a lot of issues. I’m not being a bitchy bee, just warning you they may tell you that setting can’t take a larger stone, so prepare yourself for that possibilty.

mylittlebees : I’d just go back to the friend who sold it to you and explain you couldn’t visualize the finger coverage with 0.5carat and you realized when you put it on that you would prefer to go larger. I doubt that they will care because a bigger diamond sold to you equals a bigger commission. Rings are a highly emotive purchase so I’m sure he gets it.

You’ve had a few posts about this and have be given great advice. Why not take some of the advice given?

mylittlebees : Just curious, are you going to size up the ring (halo) to accomodate the bigger stone or will the halo remain the same? My thought is that even if the center is bigger, is it going to look bigger, because the amount of finger coverage won’t change if the halo is the same size? Just something to think about before going through the change.

mylittlebees : How to go about doing what? Purchasing a bigger diamond? Bees gave you legitimate advice in the last thread that boils down to: if size matters, focus on the diamond not the setting because you can change the setting later. Get a bigger diamond in the simplest setting.
Are you going to be increasing your budget significantly? By significantly, I’m talking thousands of dollars. If not, I’d return the ring and use basically the entire budget to get a larger stone in the simplest setting available. And I would comparison shop for the stone so you find one that is a good price. Usually stones are cheaper through Blue Nile from what I’ve seen, but I would look around really hard to see if you can find a better price elsewhere.
By the way, in your last thread I legitimately gave you a bunch of options that are around 1 carat marquise stones and cost around 3k.
