Sigh

 

The stone does NOT look small. I don’t care for thicker bands but that definitely doesn’t make the stone look small. The wedding band is also on the thicker/larger side so it matches your e-ring IMO.

I’m with your husband, you’re crazy.  You’re engagement ring and wedding band look massive.

I love your ring! TBH I think it’s your wedding band with the large diamonds that takes away from your Ering….  That’s just my personal taste though.  

its like getting dressed. You can show the boobs or a lot of leg. If you do both its too “flashy”.

I think even if you change the band of the e-ring to be thinner, the wedding band would still overwhelm the e-ring.  I think you’d have to change the e-ring and get a thinner wedding band too to realy make the stone look larger and pop.

Could you take it to the jeweler and have them shave some metal off the band to make it thinner? You could change the head from 4 prong to 6 prong, that makes a difference in how a stone faces up, IMO.

Dainty wedding bands 1mm-1.7mm might detract less than your current band.

Both the diamond and the wedding band look huge to me. Yes, a think band will always make the diamond appear larger. So will a thinner wedding band.  Really I think the huge wedding band is the biggest culprit here.

I think the problem is more your wedding band. It eclipses the solitaire beauty and size of your 2+ carat.

I agree.  The ring by itself looks very large, but when you put the huge wedding band on it really, really takes away from it.
