slomotion :  interesting. I didn’t know that. Good to hear it’s a reputable seller.:)

Well, from what I understand, the ring has already been bought by op’s boyfriend. I hope she loves it.

No such thing as too small and you should punch anyone who tells you differently. Just kidding, don’t go to jail. But seriously. Jewelry is just a “thing.” At the end of the day, what matters is that 1) you’re marrying your best friend and 2) *you* love the ring. That’s all. 

FWIW, that is a gorgeous and unique set. I love vintage rings — it’s cool to have something that no one else has.

lex98 :  it has a small diamond in the center of a large reflective plate ie an illusion setting. Vintage 60s or 70s. Unique!

lex98 :  all that matters is that you like it. Smaller rings are nicer anyway, they don’t get in the way, you can still used your pockets and wesr gloves, and imo they just look better. I dont like big stones myself. Based on a ct to mm chart and the measurements provided the e-ring would be about .13ctw and the band .16ctw, for a total of .29ctw for the set. The is nothing wrong with that. My e-ring is .2ctw  (I thought it was like .27 for the longest time but searched for it online one day and found the original retail listing and it said .2ctw) and my wedding band it just metal. I haven’t experienced the shrinkage phenomenon so many post about on here and I think it may only happen to those who prefer large stones and focus on size. I also don’t believe color and clarity ratings are even worth looking at when buying a normal sized ring, I think what matters is what your eyes see.

It’s super pretty! Love the retro style.

The illusion setting will make it appear bigger than it is. I think it will look fine!

For me, the style is so much more important than size, and I love this style. If you like it too, it doesn’t matter how big it is. 🙂

“Small” and “large” are relative, as well as subjective to each person. Whether or not you like these rings is the only thing that matters. Personally, I think they look quite elegant. Congratulations!

lex98 :  personally I think it a lovely set, unique and matching each other. However it’s not vintage unless it’s over 100years old. It’s looks very danity and feminine. If you like it go for it.

doglovingwife :  Actually no – if it’s 100+ years old, it’s “antique jewelry”.  Vintage can mean mere decades or eras.

It drives me nuts that women nit pick a diamond their loved one got them. It’s rude and materialistic. Stop thinking what other will think and just enjoy it.

I think it’s a lovely ring! It’s definitely unique and I think it’s great! I love older jewellery:D  Besides if later on down the line you decide having a bigger diamond does matter you can always ask to upgrade at a significant anniversary but it’s not something I would worry about just yet. 

Enjoy your beautiful ring!

lex98 :  well said, your ring is beautiful and at the end of the wedding ceremony you will be married regardless of what size the ring is. It is beautiful and I love the idea that no one has a ring just like yours. Congratulations bee!
