i love all of these rings, although to be honest, they don’t look small at all! the settings really showcase the stones. they look awesome.

 

also, i know a few people have mentioned all of the alternatives to a new diamond. moissanite or asha are great alternatives if you want more bling and aren’t focused on a diamond.  gemstones are great as well!

All erings are beautiful, regardless of size and type of stone….what makes them lovely is the setiment behind them.

I recommend buying online…and looking at estate jewellry. You can get more value for money by way of size and quality than if you buy retail…thats what Fiance and I did.

Happy ring shopping!!!Laughing

IMO if you think it might be small or worried what people will say, why not get a.50 center stone in a halo i know its the opposite direction that you want to go but i think halos are nice and always add a little extra oomph to it, you should try both options on the pic below was my first engagement ring and it had a .50 center stone came with a band and tcw was 1.25. and Fiance paid 1700 for my set.

Mine was 1/4 carat. It looked like a sparkly white dot. I was in love with it, but I lost it on the beach when on vacation… It was a little loose and I was going to have it resized once I’m home from vacation. ๐Ÿ™

My DH is going to get me a new replacement ering soon. It will probably be around 0.5 – 0.7 ct, but I still miss this one so much…

It’s all about what makes you happy. If you will love a smaller diamond, then it is absolutely ok (even great). If it makes you uncomfortable or self conscious (I’m not saying it should), then I don’t think it’s ok. It’s a personal decision between you and your SO, and no amount of reassurance from outside sources can make it ok or not ok. You have to decide what you guys want, and absolutely anything can be “ok” if you both like it.

@iheartnerds:  My first engagement ring looked a LOT like yours and I loved it!!  .53 ct princess solitaire, but with the chevron prongs in yellow gold.  Still love it.  

OP, I only know a small handful of people with stones over .5 (one was a jeweler and got a crazy discount, and the rest are very lucky LOL).  As a matter of fact, a relative of mine has a 3 stone ring that I think all together is less than .5 and it’s still beautiful.  You don’t HAVE to have anything, whatever you are comfortable with is perfect…don’t let anyone tell you differently!!

And for reference, my center stone is .46 but it’s in a halo so it all looks bigger.
