I also didn’t want a huge ring! I was sure to make that very clear when we went ring shopping together! I tried on some larger rings, but they were too much. I’m a teacher working with young children, I can’t picture myself wearing something like that to work! I ended up with a 1/2 carat three stone ring with round diamonds and I couldn’t be happier! 🙂 AND, it didn’t break the bank as it came in at around $900. 🙂

I have small hands too, and I love my delicate ring. It suits my finger better than a large ring. 🙂

I don’t really care about the size as much as the style and how I feel about the ring when I try it on. I’ve tried on $500 rings that I like more than $5000, and vice versa. There’s such a variety out there it’s so hard to choose!

All your rings are beautiful and I dont want a big ring either but he thinks that he has to spend two months salary. I told him that it does not even have to be a real diamond. Especially because we just bought a house and I know we cant afford it. I think he is going to propose tonight becasue he made a reservation at our speical place we only go on special occasions. It is not like him to take me to this restaurant because it is expensive. He has also been really interested in my ring size, I have so much anxiety and I hope that I am not just assuming he is and the I will dissapoint myself. I have so much anxiety because what if it is really only a date. 🙁 Did any of you ladies experience this?

I’ll admit it – I want a relatively big stone on my ring but that’s due to my personal aesthetics. However, I don’t want my SO going into debt (nor do I want to go into debt for his watch) so now I’m eyeing up gemstones as opposed to diamonds (thank you WeddingBee for introducing me to gemstone rings) so I can get the size I want without the overinflated price (which usually happens with diamonds) and having to compromise too much on the quality, Also, we’re looking at getting the rings custom made by a local jewellery manufacturer so that way we can get what we want within our set budget as I was told by a friend that the main jewellery stores in NZ do large mark-ups.

I definatley don’t want a big ring. Between me being a klutz, working in a lab with gloves and personal preference, small is the way we are heading.
But what is your definition of big and small? And are you just refering to the center stone or the total carat weight? For me, I’m not even looking at rings with center stones. The ring that is becoming more and more my favorite is a very low profile fashion ring that, if we choose it, will have both tiny diamonds and tiny sapphires set in it.
