@Amani2:  Yes, it’s pretty small compared to a lot of rings these days, but that’s not a bad thing; a lot  of people prefer a dainty look. It looks great on you!

@Amani2:  oh bee, it’s gorgeous!

My best advice is to get a sparkly wedding band and then just give it time. When you first get engaged, there’s soooo much hype about THE RING, but that dies down. You’ll get married, might have a kid or 2 or 5, and life may get so hectic that you won’t have the time or energy to worry about what size ring is on your finger. And if you still have a burning desire to go bigger, then you may be better situated to upgrade. Or you might find your priorities have changed and you’d rather buy a Peloton or redo your kitchen lol

In the meantime, just love it for everything it is and try not to compare. It’s a beautiful diamond (that I personally think looks amazing on you) from a fiance who loves and adores you.

It’s a gorgeous stone and cut. I have a small stone so I got a ring wrap. It adds some more sparkle. I think I might someday get a larger moissy so that I can have an option of a bigger stone for some variety. Either that or I’ll some day take advantage of the trade up option offered by my jeweler.

Ahhh bee I know it’s all personal choice and I can’t force you to love that ring but OMG it is perfection! I absolutely adore dainty rings – I think they are so much classier than a big rock. Pure understated perfection <3

@Grid:  This!  I’ve been married for four years and since quarantine started, I’ve barely worn my engagement ring in favor of being more minimalistic generally.  I love my engagement ring, but as all-consuming as it is when you first get engaged, the importance on all the specs fades over time, at least imo.  

OP, your ring is lovely.  I would just enjoy it now and if you want to get a larger stone in the future, that’s something you and your D.H. can discuss.

I totally agree with previous posters, it just takes time. At first when I got my ring, I was just so excited to have a ring. Then looking at it for a couple weeks made me think that the basket was just hideous and I wanted something with a less prominent one. Then, my wife got really sick, so I obviously wasn’t thinking about it anymore for a long time, but I still wore it. While I wasn’t thinking about it, it became the thing I fidgeted with when I was nervous to remind me that even though things were bad, I still had her. She’s since gotten better, and every time I look at it now it reminds me that even if things get tough, we’ve been through worse and we’ll get through this too. I could never get rid of it now.
