    Wow you seeM to be all about the size and looking big… Does it even mean anything to you or is it just to show?…

    Yep, I think you are being completely rediculous OP. You clearly dislike your ring. Maybe instead of just changing the setting, you should just get another ring. If all you care about is size, then get a lower quality, larger diamond. For the record, I think the plain gold setting made the diamond look the largest.

    This is ridiculous. No, your diamond is not too small. At all. This really doesn’t even need a discussion (again).

    Maybe you should think about the message you’re sending to bees with smaller rings than you have. 

    focus on something that is healthy, because this is not.

    Wow, your ring is super small, your Fiance must not love you, you should probably change that setting again to something more flashy before your friends and stranges see it and judge your small diamond. Im pretty sure if anyone sees this ring they will think you are either poor or not in a loving relationship. HURRY!!! ORDER A NEW RING!!!!

    SHEESH. Do you really need to validate your relationship based on the size of your diamond? Is there no sentimental value or is it all just for show and not a symbol of love for you?

    The ring I was given was nothing what I thought I wanted, but its the most beautiful thing to me and every day it gets more and more beautiful because every day our relationship is growing and getting stronger.

    If you can not see what your ring is truly about and what it’s a symbol of, I feel sorry for you and maybe you should reconsider what marriage is to you, and if the is the right ring and right relationship for you.

    Want to impress your friend with your tastes and bigger better and new diamonds every 2 months, get a right hand ring for yourself and show your love for yourself on that hand.

    Small for what? A person is just as engaged and just as married even *gasp* without any stone at all. If it is “too small” for your personal taste, change the stone (setting will only do so much to change the appearance of a stone a person is dissatisfied with). But you’re obviously hung up about this, so DO something and quit obsessing.

    Prettybird67:  Not sure if you are just trolling according to others who have seen your multiple posts about the size of your ring. Maybe you should look at some of these previous theards and search the bee for Small rings. I’d hate for you to see my ring and judge how small it is. I love my ring and the whole thing is 0.5 cts and my wedding band is 0.25 cts. I wouldn’t change it for the world as my fiance did an amazing job. I use to compare my ring to those on the bee but than realized we all come from different walks of life and there is always going to be someone out there with bigger and better. Maybe if you look at these threads it will make you realize what you have isn’t small in the least and be grateful for what you have. 



    Small ring pictures please!

    Stop being so vain and stop caring what other people think about the size of your diamond. Yes it’s gonna look/be small to someone who has a larger stone. And it’s gonna look huge to some people who do t have a stone, or one that’s smaller. 

    you really need to get over this and stop making posts about what STRANGERS think about your ring. No matter what we say, or how many times you change the setting… If you believe it’s small… Nothing will change your mind about it.

    Well I am new here and have not seen your older posts. So to me this isn’t frustrating, it is just sad. I think your ring is very pretty and I don’t think it is too small at all, but it seems you do. Maybe you should talk about it with your SO as suggested above, or learn to love it and then upgrade later. I think ring jealousy is common but there is no reason for it honestly. Your ring is only a symbol of your love. It is the love itself that is important! If you really don’t like it you can always upgrade later, but for now just enjoy eachother. This should be a happy time!! 

    I was looking on my jewelers website last night for bands that I thought would go well with my particular ring, and ended up finding my exact same ring, but in a much larger size. It stung a little but then I looked at my ring and fell in love again. It is not about size at all. I doubt I will ever even upgrade. This ring is sentimental to me. And yes its .7 carats, which apparently is not that big. But I didn’t know that when I picked it out, and now that I know, I could not care less…. your ring is beautiful, every single ring I have seen the last few days on this site are beautiful. You just need to appreciate it for what it is… A symbol of your love, your engagement,  and your relationship moving forward. NOT a status symbol.

    Your ring is beautiful and looks proportional to your finger size. I’m a bit confused why you keep changing your setting though. Have you picked out every one and then changed them or was it your FL who picked out setting and your unhappy? Maybe if you get a bigger diamond and inexpensive, plain solitaire you will be happier. It seems that your unhappy with the carat size of diamond and trying to compensate by changing settings so often, which is giving me whip lash, lol jk. Anyways, you posted about which setting was better but I was confused because every picture looked to be the same setting. Anyways, I can understand changing your mind about setting type because that was me when we were ring shopping. And be refused to purchase anything til I was 100% sure on a type which may have prolonged the waiting. But my Bf would not put up with me changing my mind so frequently and we even got into an argument over it, so silly. Anyways, I feel sad for your FL for putting  up with with, unless he hasnt purchased or your purchasing. It’s the thought that counts and if he wants you to love it, then so be it but for me when my bf does propose, I wouldn’t feel okay changing it bc of all it means and being the ring he gave me when he asked. Plus my bf would have  a freak out of I did that to him. That’s probably why he encouraged me to help with picking ring diamond 🙂 lastly, I love all the settings but my fav was solitaire with diamond band

    I think your ring is beautiful. I haven’t seen your other threads, but may i suggest focusing on the reason for the ring instead of the ring itself? What I would give to have my ring on my finger right now. Try to enjoy the meaning behind it.

    Seriously?  No it’s not too small.  Get over it or replace it.  Just stop obsessing, whining, and complaining about the size.
