    @SoonToBeMrsTa:  I’m not even going to vote.  Why would you ever think an engagment ring is too small whether it’s .25 or 2 carats?

    I don’t think there is such a thing as too small…it’s the meaning that counts

    Your fiance purchased it for you, and got what he could afford, so I vote no.I would focus more on what the ring represents,not how big it is. Congratulations on your engagement! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No I don’t think it looks too small. You have nice petite fingers and I think the proportions look excellent. Now if you mean “too small” for your area I’m afraid you’ll have to make that judgement for yourself as I do not live in Dallas, Tx. I think it looks nice though, regardless of your location!

    No such thing as too small or too big. It’s all about what you want. If YOU think it’s too small consider adding a halo or getting a blingy band.

    OP obviously knows her ring isn’t small. 

    But lets not be mean… its the presentation – not the goal – that is creating some snark here. 

    Lets be real kids, we are ALL fishing for compliments when we post pictures of our rings.

    The difference is, if you title a post “zomg ring pr0nz!”, you’re not trying to be all hinty and subtle about it.  These kinds of posts get eye-rolly because the intent is very clear, but is quite poorly disguised as something else (obviously a 1ct ring is not “small” by any standard…so yeah…).

    So, OP, if you just changed your post to “holy shizzzzzzzzzzz look at my hand candy!”, no one would have given you a snarky response.     ๐Ÿ™‚

    Girl.. first off, your ring is gorgeous.  Your ring puts my ring to shame for sure.

    My ring is cheap and small but I love it.  My fiance asked me to be his WIFE, his life long partner in everything even after I gone through a surgery that pretty much killed his dream of ever having a child by me.  He still chose me so the ring doesnt mean nearly as much to me as his choice of wanting me to grow old with him.

    I think those who will comment on anyone’s ring being “cheap” “too small” “too big” or anything other than “congratulations” is materialistic and shallow.

    I can understand sometimes society puts stress on petty things such as this, so I understand why you asked what you did.  As far as those who posted nasty remarks, shame on you. 

    As far as everything else, CONGRATS, and WELCOME to the Hive.  You can post your crazy questions anytime, I will surely respond to it if no one else does.  Or just PM me and we can chat ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m just across the street anyways (Louisiana) haha

    I think PP have covered it pretty well. When I was proposed to, I was very excited to hear about my fiance sneaking off from a trip with his buddies to visit my parents and ask for my hand (they live 4 hours away from us) and I had lots of questions about how he and my son picked the ring out….never asked how big it is.  I still couldn’t tell you how “big” it is. I am certain your’s has more size, but with those stories, mine seems to light up the room and I cannot look at it without smiling.

    @mandypop:  I don’t think it’s the presentation so much as the question itself. Suggesting that an X-sized ring is small is a bit of a dig at anyone whose ring is smaller than X. There are a LOT of bees with under a carat rings, so this question is bound to ruffle a few feathers. (mixing metaphors there, bees don’t have feathers, but you get my drift!)
