7/8 is basically a full carat. nobody will see that tiny of a difference. it sounds like you just aren’t satisfied with what you have since you keep adding and upgrading multiple times and you want to upgrade AGAIN.

I just think unless you’re upgrading significantly, it won’t be noticeable.

7/8 vs. 1.  I dont think anyone would notice a difference.

I agree with the other posters.  No one is going to notice that 1/8 of a carat.  If it’s saying “My ring is 1 carat” that’s important to you, then just round up!  My ring is .47 and I say it’s a half carat cause it’s just easier.

eh, quit adding now and just start saying the number you want to say 🙂 Then save your money for more jewelry down the line, if that’s your interest!

I think that the bands will add a lot of the zing you are looking for. I am going to add an enhancer wrap as my band and that will satisfy my need for extra spangle.

You’re definitely being pretty picky. I agree with Melissa, instead of making all these minor changes… why don’t you guys just save up for the next few years until you can afford a rock that will be more to your liking?? 🙂

Once you add the bands, your finger is going to sparkle!

Who are you trying to impress?  Your friends? Your parents? Other women?  I am also a small girl (0-2 petite) and my Fiance and are both about to graduate as medical doctors, so really, we could have spent a lot more on the rings, but i thought the 3/4 carat was the perfect size on my small hand and Fiance spent a good chunk of change making sure he got good color, cut, and clarity.  If you were initally happy with the size, what changed?  Did someone comment on it?

my ring is slightly over 1kt and my finger is a 4.5. it looks HUGE and i get comments on that. and i don’t have any side stones! i’ll be doing a .6kt eternity band for the wedding. we decided instead of going bigger, to get a better diamond.

to be honest, i think youre being too picky, but if you want a bigger stone–well, go for it! i just think bigger stones tend to look tacky on small hands (again this is MY opinion), especially if you have a wedding band with diamonds.

If you want more bling (let’s face it, some girls are bling girls) you have a wedding band with diamonds! Or you could add a halo setting to it down the road

Who’s paying for these upgrades?  If its you then I say do whatever will make you happy – even if it’s just for yourself.  If its him make sure that tiny bit is worth his love and upgrades of what he originally picked/could afford for you.  Just remember you have your whole life to pay for things, make money and upgrade.  My grandma upgraded her e ring after 50 years and its amazing.  They could never afford it before but now its really special.
