Your finger, your choice.

Having said that, my external moral compass about colorless gemstones is Queen Elizabeth: her royal finger sports a 3ct diamond so I’d stop at 2.5cts.

weddingbaby12:  Very rude and I don’t follow your logic. Why does liking the look of a 10mm diameter sparking stone mean someone is “over-compensating”? 

Should people only be allowed to wear diamonds or banned from wearing stones bigger than what they could afford in diamond? Are you are advocating something like the old Venetian sumptuary laws?

What’s it to you that she prefers a big old honker?

veronica.sampley.1:  size is 100% a personal preference. For me, 3cts is around my limit so a 4 is too big for me. It’s not that way with everyone else  though. I would keep in mine that the larger the stone the more color the moissy is going to hold. I am color sensitive so it would be a problem for me, but may not be an issue for you. Is there a store you can go to to try on a 4ct? What size finger are you?

weddingbaby12:  Speaking of overcompensation, typing mean anonymous messages on the internet.

weddingbaby12:  That was not my point. My point was you should not say rude comments about peoples rings.

If it looks like something you or your fiance could afford financially- go ahead.  If it is something that people are automatically going to assume is a CZ or think you robbed a bank to get- I’d say nay.

weddingbaby12:  Wow you’re rude. What are people overcompensating for by owning jewelry and what is it to you if she gets something big if that is what she likes? Are you buying it for her? What are you overcompensating for that you felt it was soooooo necessary to come to a board just to be an asshole?

veronica.sampley.1:  I don’t think 4ct is too big if that is what you want. I agree with MrsSparkleBee13:  that it would prob show a lot of body color. That is something that would drive me nuts, but a lot of people on these boards don’t mind it at all- this would totally be your own preference. Before you shell out that kind of money, I would either order a loose stone that you can return if you don’t like it, and go try on a bunch of settings to see if you are comfortable with that size.

Personally, I would save up and get a 4ct amora gem (or smaller if price is a factor).

it would be too big for me, but it’s your ring.

I think it would look cocktailish to most people unless you are well off.. The is it too big question is always odd.. too big for what exactly?

If you love it then you should certainly go for it.  It might look a bit ‘cocktail-y’ but that in itself is a style as some people really rock the full on look. I have a friend who wears beautiful stones – all kinds – they are always big but it’s so her and she always looks very styled. on the other hand, if you’d like people to perhaps think ‘ooh nice diamond ring’ then maybe go for something a little more modest. 

Personally I wouldn’t wear a 4ct moissy as my e-ring but I’d certainly wear a 4ct diamond if I had one! I like a big look.
