Hello bees.i’m having some issues with my engagement ring/wedding set. Lately i’ve been feeling like the band of the e-ring and my wedding band overshadow the main stone of my e-ring. The center stone is 1.51cts and i dont think it looks that size. also i worry about the proportion of my rings against my hands. i think my rings have too much metal and since the band is close in size to my center stone, the center stone gets overshadowed. my ring size is 4.75 and my hands as a whole are very tiny (small palms, short fingers). What do you guys think? would my center stone be better displayed with a thinner band or am i just crazy? lol. thanks for your help bees 🙂

I am not sure about the smaller band question, but be it that your finger is so tiny, I do have to agree that it doesn’t look like it is 1.5ct
EDIT: The 2nd pic wasn’t up for my original reply. It looks that big and it looks good the way that it is.

It looks about right, size-wise to me. Are you only wearing the e-ring in the second pic?

Your stone looks HUGE! I think you’re over thinking it.. or maybe realizing that those rings we see in movies are ridiculously HUGE and we’ve been made to think they’re the norm! lol… I know I thought about that when I got mine.

the second picture only has me wearing the e-ring. AS i’ll be wearing both the rings together for the rest of my life i;m mostly worried about how they look together. i included the second picture as areference so you can see my hand size.

A thinner band will make the center stone look proportionately larger.
Do I think your rings look fine as they are? Yes!

Looking at the second pic, everything is fine and dandy!

I have a 1ct in a VERY thin band….sometimes I think it looks TOO big 🙂

I think it will look just as huge no matter what band you wear. It is gorgeous!

I think it’ll look bigger with a thin band, most stones do. But I love your ring as it is!

I think the engagement ring by itself still makes the center stone look plenty big, but I do see what you’re talking about with the full set. I think the stone looks pretty big regardless because it IS big, but if you want a bigger stone effect, a thinner band might do it for you. The only thing I fear is that you may miss all the bling from all the white metal and diamonds of your current set. So if you get a new set, it should probably be just as sparkly!

@eeestrad: I do kind of think the two bands are a tad bit thick when worn together. but that’s my personal preference, I like thin bands!
