I refer you to my weddingbee post on 50 ways to make your diamond look bigger.

Your diamond ring looks great by the way.  ๐Ÿ™‚

“my fiance convinced me against it because he thought they looked “antique” and “not classic”. So, we decided to get a more solitaire-like look, with a pave band. “

What’s wrong with antique, and why does your fiance’s opinion matter so much? He isn’t going to be the one wearing the ring. I wonder if he discouraged a halo because they can cost a good bit more.

I think you should get a halo added since that’s what you originally wanted.

Sorry in advance that I did not read all the other comments by other bees. I feel you and it is true when your surrounding circle is wearing something nicer or bigger that makes you feel insecure. Talk to your Fiance and reset it into a halo. A one caret cushion cut in a halo would look enormous! You ring is gorgeous by itself but if you are not happy with it, do somthing about it ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the ring is really beautiful but as other PPs have stated, I would wait for a milestone ig I were to get an upgrade and at the end of the day its what you want! 

Just food for thought though I think a carat is plenty big! I have a 0.77 carat RB that I think is just divine!  Also a cushion cut looks even larger! So if I were you I wouldn’t sweat it or worry what others think ๐Ÿ™‚

I am sorry but you sound like a brat. Your hunny has saved up money or even if he didn’t to buy you something that is gorgeous by the way and you are posting that you think it is too small because other girls in your circle have halos?! This can’t be real. Now lets say your friends are judging your ring and its not YOU who is actually judging you ring, then I’d say they are not real friends and the thing you should be worrying about replacing is them and not your ring.

You sound incredibly shallow! Life isn’t about keeping up with the Jones’! My engagement ring is a .73 ct princess cut and my SIL’s is about the same or a slightly larger round that looks a lot bigger and more sparkly than mine. I would NEVER ask my DH for an upgrade just because someone’s ring is bigger or shinier than mine. 

Also, the fact that you say that you don’t go crazy over your ring is absurd. The newness wore off..big deal! I’ve had mine for almost 2 years and it doesn’t always catch my eye like it did at the beginning. However, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world because my husband picked it and the meaning behind it means so much more than one upping someone else!

Your ring is really beautiful. I think whatever size stone you have it brings its own issues as if it’s big people can judge you for being materialistic, if it’s small people can judge you for not spending more and if it’s inbetween people can still judge you for it being too ‘big’ or ‘small’ according to their personal standards, being a diamond and therefore politically unethical, not being a diamond and therefore not being traditional etc etc. You can never impress everyone no matter what you do.  

The other thing to realise is that what is considered ‘big’ and ‘small’ varies greatly according to where you live, what crowds you mingle with and what industry you work in. My diamond is 0.8 carats but I have small hands, the stone faces up slightly larger and I live in an area where 0.5 is more like the norm. As a result I get comments all the time about my ring being ‘huge’.  You may regret upgrading to a larger diamond if later down the track you end up living somewhere where that ends up WAY bigger than the norm, as it causes its own issues.
