I think it’s an absolutely lovely ring! Classic and dainty and elegant. Personally, anything larger than that would make me self-conscious. Heck, mine isn’t even a diamond-it’s sapphire-which is what I wanted. I felt a bit uncomfortable at first as well, because I wasn’t sure how people would react to a completly non-traditional engagement ring, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised, and now I happily flash it. And when it comes down to it? As long as YOU love it, that’s all that matters! :o)

I think it’s very lovely! I’d wear it. 🙂

I think it is absolutely beautiful… a classic! A plain band or maybe a filligree band would look great with it!

I have a small diamond and with my small fingers, it works. I know it seems like everyone wants a big rock on their finger, but bigger doesn’t mean better. A lot of smaller diamonds are better cuts than the big ones. Also, I think a big rock on one’s finger can be annoying. Do you ever put your hands in your pockets or put on gloves? Because a big rock will get in the way of that.
I think my fiance was more self conscious about the ring than I am. He was out of work for a long time and didn’t have the money to do much. I told him that what was important is that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and that is what the ring stood for. Maybe later we will upgrade, but if not, no big deal, because I love what it stands for.

It’s not the size of the diamond that matters, it’s what it symbolizes. Most people are probably just jealous because you have someone who loves you enough to marry you and they don’t. Simple is beautiful.

I was just looking at your ring pic, and my fiance looked over my shoulder and said “that’s really nice.” I agree!!

If you love it, and its perfect to you, then that’s all that matters. I don’t make any judgement on anyone elses ring or personal items. But for me, I would say its small, but who cares what my taste are!

On my size 8.25 fingers, it would look too small.

size is relative. It’s the thought that counts. Maybe you will have a bigger down-payment on a house because of a smaller diamond?

Just an FYI: Every woman I work with has a smaller diamond than me and mine is about 3/4. Not once have I thought that theirs were too small or they wish for a larger stone, in fact I always assumed they just preferred smaller stones. There is something to be said about an understated classic that shows confidence unlike a big flashy ring.
So in my opinion you should wear it with pride!

To be quite honest, I think that ring looks absolutely stunning on your hand. It’s a beautiful solitaire! (I love solitaires, hence my Fiance got me one!) 🙂 Secondly, I find that solitaires are the traditional classy look, too. If you’re feeling self conscious about the size, get a wedding band with lots of bling! But don’t change a think about the solitaire because it’s beautiful!

No one says mine is gorgeous either, and it’s around 3/4 carat. Don’t worry about it. People are random.
My ring was under $100 fora plain gold band. If you want pave diamonds in it, you can still go under $200 at some stores (local jewelers in the mall–not the bigger ones) or overstock.com.

It is very beautiful & .33 isn’t to small at all. My ring is .20 something, its marquise shape though. I got a 4mm plain solid white gold band for 60 bucks and some change after tax! I’ll post a pic of it on my hand. 🙂 Ill add some links of some under 200 bucks bands, that I think will look lovely with your e-ring! 🙂 Oh & be sure to check the diamond color/clarity of the wedding band I left below in a link to make sure it wouldn’t look bad with the diamond you already have on your e-ring. http://www.amazon.com/White-Gold-Ladys-Wedding-Band/dp/B001W8MEBW http://www.overstock.com/Jewelry-Watches/10k-White-Gold-1-8ct-TDW-Diamond-Wedding-Band-J-K-I2-I3/3181186/product.html

I think youre ring looks lush! To be honest, in the UK we are do not seem to be so self conscious about size; perhaps we have more problems finding a nice man to marry to begin with! I think it is much more classy to have a simple and elegant ring – can you picture a queen with bling, no, they would have classic and tastefull. Obviously, commitment is the main reason for you getting engaged, but after that if you want a ring to last the test of time, classic appearence, cut, and quality are the most important thing. To a ‘normal’ British Person, a 33point ring is huge! My ring is .25 and I am really proud of it – that is a good diamond size, and the diamond is clear and reflects light well. x
