That round morganite is amazing, especially against your skin tone. I’d go for it, especially since you mention that you are comfortable wearing giant rings. And while there is tons of finger coverage, it looks fine on your finger. So don’t worry!

I think the key to making gemstone engagement rings not look like cocktail rings is to have a very classic setting (mine is a six-prong solitaire with a plain shank) and a wedding band accompanying it.

Fair warning: there will always be close-minded people who think anything that isn’t a 1+ carat diamond solitaire isn’t a “real” engagement ring, and when you have a gemstone ring, you’ll occasionally hear them voicing their unsolicited opinions. If you really love your ring, though, it shouldn’t matter what others say.

Well I think a stone can be too big – for me. Doesn’t mean I don’t like it on someone else. But I wouldn’t get that particular stone, it has a very large “window”.

I’m all about the big stone. But you have to love it. One more item to think about is how heavy that ring is going to be on a daily basis. I have a 10mm wide 7cttw in white gold and its heavy. So what did I do? I bought another ering but this one is a 2mm solitaire. And while I love my ring the solitaire is the easy answer most days. Good luck!

They’re lovely stones. You have to choose what’s best for you, regardless of what anyone says or thinks. My main concern is that a morganite of that size is bound to get knocked and they aren’t the hardest stones. Otherwise, I’d say go for it!

Anything over 3.5 for round and 4 for anything else is too big imho. You gotta think about everyday wear.
