huge in an awesome way!
huge in an awesome way!
It’s a beautiful ring, but I don’t find it to be large.
It’s really pretty, but definitely not “huge.” In my area it’s maybe average, but it could be considered huge in a more rural area perhaps?
i agree with all posts! its super pretty but not overly HUGE!!! i had a similar issue when i showed a friend a pic of my ring on my phone ( i wasnt wearing it) and she was like OH MY.. is there like 4 lil diamonds in the middle.. you mean you got 1 carat JUST in the center? I wasnt sure how to take it..but i decided that its a compliment.. and ive taken all the rest the same!
However, in other circles my ring is Average!! my FIs family is old world itailan and my twc 2.25 ring is SMALL compared to half his cousins!
your ring is a beaut… and id be just happy with that!
I think if a carat is big in your area-and your friends were lead to believe your stone is a diamond they are completely blown away. Maybe even iNtimidated. Many men think they need to match the size of friends stones and if a 1ct diamond is way out of the budget they may think their own engagements will be delayed.
I think it’s beautiful and looks wonderful on your hand. Someone is always going to have something to say one way or another so just brush it off and look at your gorgeous ring 🙂
I think its silly to be worried about such a thing, if you like it that’s all that counts and what other people say doesn’t matter. I think 1 carat is pretty average, I don’t know anyone you has less than a carat. When I think of huge I think 3+ carats.
First off, your ring is stunning and timeless. I wouldn’t be offended if the only “compliment” I got was that my rock was huge. It’s also a completely relative term. For example, in my area a 1ct is considered the standard starting point.
I think it’s beautiful, but it’s not Kardashian size! That’s huge. Lol
My center stone is just over a carat and I’ve gotten a whole spectrum of comments from, “that gargantuan stone” to “you can get bigger after you’ve been married awhile”.
It will definitely stand the test of time, it really is a lovely ring.
Now that i read though the posts I see that it’s a moissy. If they are lead to believe it’s a diamond then they are probably thinking about the size and cost and guessing Fiance spent $10k when he really spent a lot less. I’m not saying there’s anythng wrong with this, but if you guys are financially in a place where spending $10k on a ring would be a big deal then that’s probably why they’re commenting on the size. If I showed up with a 5 carat diamond on my hand I know my close GF’s would be asking if I just won the lottery b/c they know where we are financially in our lives (have mortgages to pay etc) and it would be unlike us to spend $50k on a diamond.
I was expecting 3 or 4 carats or something. My ring is the same (although my ring size is 4.75). I think it’s the perfect size. It looks great on you, and is a pretty stone! I’ve had a few people say mine is huge. . . . mainly my mom. I sometimes feel self-conscious about mine as well, but in the end I love it. Sometimes I wish it was bigger, sometimes I wish it was smaller, therefore it must be the perfect size! Maybe you can show off how it sparkles or call attention to some of its other qualities when people mention it’s huge.
Er… sorry about this… I think it is beautiful, by the way, and solitaires are always a tasteful choice… but…
When I saw that pic, the first thing I thought was “**** me, that’s HUGE!!!” LOL!
You have tiny fingers so maybe that’s making it look bigger than it is? I have a 1 carat princess cut with size 7 fingers and I’ve had a few “wow, that’s a ROCK” or similar comments. I even had some girls at work joke about starting a little rock club since they were jealous of my ring. Take it as a compliment!
I think it’s beautiful and classy! I love it. It reminds me a bit of mine. I have a .75 carat round cut diamond on a cathedreal setting. 🙂
