I have heard that your ring will seem bigger if you look at it in a mirror………never really tried that specifically!

Beautiful ring Bee!

futuremrsspin :  Do you and your friend have hands of a similar size? I know I have pretty long fingers and relatively large hands. When my tiny dainty friend put on my ring it looked GINORMOUS on her, but looks a lot more proportional on my hand. 

Either way, your ring is an absolute classic and gorgeous. Your Fiance deserves a round of applause 😀

The center stone will look bigger or smaller based on the finger size.  I’ve got a 9.75 sized finger and I think my 1.5 ct looks nice on it, but not large.  I see others with the same ct size and smaller fingers and it looks huge.  But I think if you really try not to look at your finger and just the ring, it can look bigger.  I also heard the mirror thing – I always think my ring looks bigger in the mirror. 

Gorgeous ring, btw!

20sparklingyears :  This works! I think my ring always looks HUGE in the mirror.

OP – I feel you, I think seeing it on someone else’s hand makes it look different all together and you are seeing it from a different view point. I’ve been wearing mine almost 3 years now and it never gets old.

It looks like a great size to me on your hand!

I think cut and finger size/length are factors with perception. Like I didn’t care much for princess cuts, except this one. 😍 I have short, slender fingers so there was significant coverage and sparkles galore. The center is only .5 but it looked so much bigger on my finger than the .5 pear, round and emerald cuts. Should have taken pics. Beautiful ring, congrats! 😊

It’s all about perspective. I like to see my daughter wearing my rings because she has small hands and they look great on her. Superstitions fon’t exist in my world. I’ve let others try on my rings.

It’s a lovely ring OP!
