    If you do like more dainty settings/rings…. then this definitely isn’t it imo.  It’s “big”, but not too big to me and I’d wear it…. so it’s really up to your personal preference.

     You would have to change the whole setting in addition to the center stone to make a smaller stone fit, right? As PP said, definitely a personal choice, but I think your ring is beautiful and looks great on your hand!

    Your finger seems be able to carry it OK, but since you like dainty… if the halo stones were not as big, maybe you would like it better since that would give it a more refined / dainty look.

    changing the centerstone wouldnt change the overall size of the setting. Youd have to have the whole ring remade, with smaller stones in the halo too. If you love it I wouldnt bother! Just wear it and enjoy it.

    I don’t think changing the center stone would make the ring more dainty, it’s the cluster/halo that’s large.

    You can find some dainty victorian rings on etsy and ruby lane for a small sum. With that setting you would need to totally redo the ring to make it look smaller.

    I think it looks great, but agree that I would leave the center stone as is and make the halo stones smaller if you want to keep the same style ring. Otherwise, if you’re ready for a change you could move the center stone to a classic solitaire where it would look more dainty.

    Since the center stone isn’t large, removing the chunky halo would make it much more dainty. Same with replacing the halo stones with smaller ones.

    Really any option other than replacing the center stone with something smaller will have the desired effect.

    I’d keep the center stone as is but have it set into a daintier floral halo setting.  It’s the pointers in the halo thats adding bulk and finger coverage.

    I think your ring is lovely, and I love the floral motif! I do understand what you mean about “too big” though, the coverage is almost the entire width of your finger. If you change out the center stone, you’ll also have to change the halo to make it look smaller.

    Perhaps asking the jeweler if you could size down the halo stones? A little reduction would make the whole ring seem daintier and still keep the floral feeling.

    IT definitely reads more ‘cocktail’ style than ‘engagement’ style. But its very pretty.

    I do think it looks cocktail, as well.
