It’s beautiful, very classic!

I think my ring is pretty average. It’s bigger then my mom’s and my SIL’s, so I always thought it was a good size. But I still had a friend tell me, “Oh, I thought it would be bigger.” when she saw it. People can say dumb things. But it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of it, as long as you love it!

Thank you for the stats.  Okay, here is my answer, please nobody slam me for this.  I wear a 5.5 ring size too, and for me .33cts would be too small.  I have a friend who has a 2ct soliaire e-ring, and I would find that too big.  Kim Kardashian has a 20+ct. e-ring I would find too big and I am quite sure she would find my 1ct solitaire too small.  I guess the point I am trying to make is if .33ct is right for you than it is right.  If it is too small to you it is too small for you.

My ring is the same carat size, but princess cut, and I was really self conscious about mine, too. Nobody has made any comments about its size, and lots of people have said it was beautiful/gorgeous.

I love it, though, and I never really think of it as “small” anymore. It’s simple and classic and beautiful, and yours is, too.

I think your ring is gorgeous. ๐Ÿ™‚ And as long as YOU like it, be happy!

So I’m not original here in saying this, but your ring really is classically beautiful. Have you purchased your wedding band yet? I love love love the look of solitares with diamond bands, so I think that’s a great idea. 

And your ering looks great on your finger- you should be proud of it, you’re very lucky ๐Ÿ™‚

My diamond is a little over 1 carat and people don’t really say it is gorgeous either, so don’t feel bad.  Size doesn’t matter; it is the thought behind it.  I also wear a size 5 ring.

I do think your ring is really beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s a smaller ring, but why is that a bad thing? Size is just one aspect of a diamond. I really don’t understand being offended by “cute”. Since

when did that word have negative connotations?

Why do we care so much about what others think? If you love this ring and the guy who gave it to you, no one else’s opinion should matter. At. All.

Don’t let other peoples’ comments make you second guess what is yours. My ring was my grandmothers because we could not afford a new one. Guess what? I have friends with giant rocks, but it does not make them any happier than I am ๐Ÿ™‚

I love your ring.

A lot of PPs have said it already but it’s a very classically beautiful ring – rock it!

I do have a tip for your band! We are getting my band (pave diamonds halfway around) made by a local jeweler. He is making it for literally $200 when at Kay’s or something it would be well over $500. So what I recommend is scouring your area for local jewelers who do custom work. They are really affordable – and your ring will be custom made! I actually got my recommendation from another bee – so maybe try that out in your area? ๐Ÿ™‚

Question for you: why are you asking? What are you going to do when I say “yeah, it’s tiny- get a bigger one”.

i think its stunning AND gorgeous! and i not just saying that to make you feel better. i love small solitaire rings. i think your size is perfect. i think mine is too small sometimes because it is 0.25, and i had my heart set on a 0.33 carat. we might upgrade mine one day.
