“Small” is a matter of preference, people like all different kinds of diamond sizes. I think it is a great size and looks substantial and proportionate on your hand. I love the diamond shape too! It’s a beautiful ring.

That’s such a beautiful stone! I think it looks great but I can 100% sympathize with your feelings- you need to feel good about it.

When my fiance originally asked me what kind of ring I would want, I just said solitaire round or oval without actually trying on any rings to see what size stones would look good on my 7.5 size hand. The solitaire he got me is beautiful but compared to the size of my hand just looked disproportionately small. I kept fixating on it and everytime I looked at my ring I felt disappointed and knew the feeling wouldn’t go away.

I ended up getting the stone reset to a different setting with some side stones to even out the proportions of my hand. Would that be something you’d want to explore? I’m also planning on a blingy wedding band, so you could always do something similar!

It is stunning! Don’t let forums skew reality for you. Reality is that it’s beautiful and looks lovely on your hand. Elegant and classy without flashing your wealth around. I don’t believe in this “coverage” theme we have on this forum. Rock it girl!

That is a matter of personal taste. Plenty of women prefer smaller stones with or without a budget and regardless of ring size. Others prioritize quality above all or carat size. I disagree that there is such a thing as one right size based on the size or shape of your hands. 

That said, you pay a huge premium, totally unnecessarily in my opinion, for the Tiffany name and will therefore take a hit on size. But the other specs are there and it takes the work out of doing your own research if you value quality. People usually accept that going in.

Don’t upgrade. Your ring is perfection. 

Focus on looking at bands, there are so many options!

I think you’ll regret swapping the stone out if you do it now.

@Amani2:  Have you considered a ring enhancer or wrap? It might add more presence or character to the ring. You also want to think of how the ring will look with a wedding band.

I think it’s absolutely beautiful. I agree with PP about this whole “coverage” thing. But it’s all a personal preference. That is a beautiful diamond and shape and looks great on your hand. That’s what I notice 😊

Also feel special that your diamond cut is a piece of art. The Tiffany True cut is exclusive to the brand. It’s the mix of a cushion and an asscher, and it’s to die for! I love this cut so much and it looks beautiful on you!

@Amani2:  Ok, so, for what it is worth, here is my opinion, I think it is STUNNING. Bigger is not always better. I think your diamond is gorgeous and you chose it because you LOVED the setting and the brand. Its a beautiful Tiffany’s diamond. That right there makes it something of its own breed. For me there is something wonderful knowing that when you go to Tiffany you know you are getting something fabulous and genuine. Outside of the Tiffany world you really do need to put in a lot of work and time educating yourself and finding a jeweler you trust. There are many benefits to Tiffany’s. I think your ring is absolutely stunning! I think it looks gorgeous and sparkly.
