But we did go look at rings! I wasn’t really expecting a proposal. Wanting one, yes, expecting one, no.
This may sound dumb, but did any of you ladies go try on rings and the diamonds were smaller than you were expecting for the weight? Maybe it’s just my fat fingers. But I see all these posts of huge looking diamonds and everything I tried on looked so small on my fat fingers.
I just want my ring to be the center of my finger, and not to have to double check to see if I’m even wearing one. I don’t mean to sound greedy or anything. Just an honest question for you Bees.

@NotablySidedJP: Too bad about no proposal *hugs* but sounds like you’re on the right track.
I agree.. I think photos somehow make the rings look bigger! I was expecting a lot when I tried on 2 carat rounds and they really don’t look that big. My ring size is 5.5 and I have long, slim fingers and they still didn’t look massive.
I think I am going to go w. a halo because I like the finger coverage, LOVE the sparkle, and round solitaires (even the 2+ carats) just didn’t do it for me.

i have small finger (size 4.25) and I know some people will call me ggreedy and
I understand everyone has a very specific style he/she likes when it comes down to erings
but I do like my ring flashy and big.. hehe
but instead of driving my SO crazy, I decided to look into double halo
and thank god I fell in love with this vera wang total 2 1/4 ct princess cut engagement rring center stone is 1ct but on my finger, it surely covers my entire finger
i love it that way and I don’t care what people say about my ring
you don’t have to have a huge center to have a flashy ring

@canarydiamond: I agree! I tried the solitary ones! It’s just not me! I love halo! Especially double halo! For anyone who wants big and flashy ring! I def recommend it. The sparkle is breath taking

I kinda go back and forth with this. I have a big cusion cut sapphire halo with part infinity. It’s like 3 carats or something, very big ring, and I love it! But I get tired of it sometimes too. I work in a hospital and can’t wear it there, but I want something on that finger dammit!
Looking at bands now as I’m getting married in July and I think I’m going to end up getting a very plain band and just wear them separately. I love my e-ring but a change is nice sometimes too.

I like the 3 stone round ones with a larger center stone. We have a good budget. I just don’t know what is reasonable for size. I know I love this style though.

I think it depends on what type of ring you’re looking at. Something with a lot of side diamonds tends to look bigger than just a solitaire, in my opinion.

@NotablySidedJP: It really depends on your finger size. You should definitely go and try different styles! you might be surprised that some of rings you thought you like don’t look quiet the same as you picture! that’s what I happened to me! I researched all onlines and when I actually went and tried,? oh no. !
keep us posted what you end up choosing! 🙂

@Pam0927: My ring finger size is 5.5. But I have small hands and stubby fingers, I’ve always been selfconsious about them. I just want my ring to be the center of attention and not look like it’s trying to strangle my fat finger. Lol.
My SO will be picking out the ring, so I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be getting. He wants it to be a surprise. But he knows what I like now, so I know he’ll get me something nice.
