It’s lovely, but it seems like you feel it’s too small for you! 
you should absolutely love your ring and be 100% happy with it, you’re going to be wearing it all the time! You should do whatever will make you happiest! If that means upgrading, then you should do that, if that means find ya ring guard to add more to it, then do that! You need to love it!

l think your ring is STUNNING! It looks perfect on your hand. You’re the one who has to wear it though & if you’re not in love with it I say go for the upgrade.

I completely understand you… I have/had major ring regret as I pushed for a halo within our budget instead of just going for a whole stone. So instead of having a whole carat center, it’s a .5 and it bothers me but not as much as it did when I first got it .side note:I can’t upgrade it to a bigger center stone without buying an entire new ring. :/

 

what helped me overcome the feeling is the wedding band. It added more sparkle! If it really bothers you I would consider a ring wrap as pp mentioned

@Amani2:  

I could have written your post – I felt the exact same way! 

I agree with everyone else that your diamond and the quality looks stunning! And to not pay attention too much to the finger coverage talk on forums (I am guilty of this though haha).

If I were you I’d see how you like it once you get your wedding band!

In my case the band I fell in love with looks so much better with the new setting I chose, but you might fall in love with your ring again paired with your band. But ultimately if you do want to upgrade, I think you need to do what will make you happy as you’ll be wearing your ring.

I think the stone is so beautiful that its the center of attention! It all balls down to your preference.

l think it is a lovely elegant ring. Tiffany jewellery is, as you know very highly priced compared to others and you obviously chose the prestigious name knowing this. So own your choice and be bold about it. You could have it reset as a three stone or have a halo added l guess, or pay Tiffany’s huge price to be ‘upgraded’, but to my mind what you need to do is go with it, flaunt it , and do not succumb to envy of others bigger stones.

@Amani2:  The diamond is small but the overall ring is very beautiful, bee. Bigger is not always better. Your look is classic and timeless!!

Name brand rings always come with a difficult decision – go with the name brand and get a smaller diamond within your budget or go with a non-name brand and get a larger diamond within your budget. I’m sure your fiancé bought the largest diamond he could afford at Tiffany, and given it was so recent, you probably don’t have the money to invest in an expensive upgrade. I would either trade it in for a similar non-Tiffany ring that’s larger or wait until after you get married to upgrade for an anniversary or something!

I love the idea of a band wrap. You can do a TON of things with that to enhance the overall space on your finder.  It would give you more ring space and I think thats what your wanting. So many possibilities! You could do custom or etsy. You could go the vintage or super modern route… I do however, think your stone is really beautiful. Try a band wrap. They come in all different shapes and sizes. 

 

Bigger is such an american thing as well. I heard the average stone size in europe is under .5. Untimately if your unhappy with it and a band wrap just isn’t cutting it then girl, go ahead and get a bigger stone. But I honestly think the wrap will add more coverage. 

It’s really lovely though truly. 

 

I would also just like to add that I now have two rings. I’m obsessed with low set rings and my original ring was never as low as I wanted it. Even though I designed it, I wanted it lower and the place that made it just wouldn’t do it. Fast forward to now, I have my second ring and its basically my dream ring in the low department. So, my point is, if you really want something its usually always going to be in the back of your mind. So, if a ring wrap doesn’t cut it nothing probably will until you upgrade to what you want. No harm in going and trying both options at the very least.
