I’m in the UK and you’re definitely wise to think smaller. I have a 1.25 and it is MASSIVE! seriously massive – people always comment about how huge it is. I’m lucky that I like it (and picked it!) but it’s hard to not look as though you’re showing off!

I get the opinion that large rings/showing wealth is admired in America – much like driving around in a fancy car. Over here, people with huge fancy cars tend to get looked down on because they’re being flashy.

I think it’s good to take that into consideration – either way the amount of effort you’ve put into this is amazing and she’s going to be very happy with the final result – regardless of what it is or how big it is!

Show her this thread – seriously, she’ll cry lots!

The last pic is gorgeous.  My thought – – pull the trigger, get the ring made, and propose!  I’m sure she’ll be so happy that you put all this work into getting it perfect that she’ll just melt.  Good luck!

@lookingaring:  I just came into this but I’m a bit confused, I thought your last post before said you showed her a ring with the 4 stones & she didn’t like it?

By The Way I LOVE that vintage 1950s piece
