    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.

    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 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!
