    lilsweetie:  your words mirror my own experience exactly! I am a (fairly knobbly) size 3.5 and my 2.02 carat often looks quite small to me when I look down at it. However when I see it on my hand in the bathroom mirror it looks big again! Also when I see 2 carats on other people on the Bee or Pricescope they always look much bigger than mine does to me.

    Rationally I think my diamond is probably pretty perfect sizewise – but I still think I could have rocked anything up to 3 carats. I swear my diamond shrinks and grows!

    Your hands are very pretty. Mine aren’t great and look worse on photographs, wide, bent and wrinkly. Yuk!

    Drizzle:  I am so glad I am not the only one who feels like that. I often feel like my thoughts are spoiled and ungrateful, but it is what it is. 

    To me your stone looks HUGE and much larger than 2.02 carats. Looks great on your tiny finger, but I know you don’t see it that way because I don’t see mine that way either.

    I used to think I could go up a size but today I was in Walmart (don’t judge me you know you go there too) and I actually felt a bit self conscious about it. So yes my 1.25 carat diamond center with .5 on the band is just perfect for me.

    I’m a size 4.5 finger and my e-ring is a white sapphire that’s about 1 carat in size, which covers the majority of my finger (as you can see in my user picture).

    At first I loved it, but couldn’t get over how huge it looked to me. I still love this ring and have it, and the stone is beyond remarkable so I will continue to wear it, but my fiance and I looked into smaller stones.

    We got really lucky recently on ebay and got a ridiculous deal on an amazing .3ct diamond ring. This size looks so much better on my finger! I know a lot of people love bigger stones, but I guess they’re just not for me! And now I have two lovely rings ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am usually all about “bigger the better” lol, but, since my reset, I can honestly say I would not want my diamond any bigger.  I think with my setting, which is my dream french cut setting, it would not look good to go bigger.  So I am going to go with it feels just right. ๐Ÿ™‚  2.8ct (8.6mm) with 1.45ct of french cuts  on a 6.5.

    I loooove all of these! I think my “IDEAL” stone is like a 3-4 carat stunner hahaha but I just love bling! I do love my diamond and I’m obsessed with the setting and my bands, but because it’s a cushion it faces up small which kind of stinks. I had thought about a halo but when I tried them on I just loved the look of the diamond standing alone with a delicate band. The RB’s I’ve seen with the same carat weight as mine always look much larger – by at least a half carat – but I really loved the elongated cushion cut soooo that’s what we went with, luckily it’s an excellent stone ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe if/when we upgrade I’ll do a RB but I’ve been loving pears lately too, and my heart always sings for elongated cushions. Luckily I have quite a few years to decide, LOL! I see all these amazingly huge rings on here and drool a bit (or a lot) but I do love my ring ๐Ÿ™‚ mine is a 1.8 carat (center) slightly elongated cushion and I’m a size 5.25 ring.

    I think mine is pretty large for me but I like it that way . So I think it is perfect for me and my taste and the life I lead . 1.03 ct elongated cushion center with .67 ct in shank and halo for TCW of 1.70 I have soaked the boards with this ring .. So hopefully the bees aren’t too sick of me yet lol .. Oh and ring size 5.25 sized for summer swelling though . 

    With and with out my WB
