    It does look bigger but I really like the black centre stone with that band (bottom left)

    @bunnyharriet:  Yes it looks bigger and a round diamond with facets will look even bigger.

    I have a size 5 finger (because of my knuckles, so perhaps my finger is more like 4.5) so here is a picture of an 8mm ring and 9mm ring. I love 8mm! 9mm is too much 😉

    7mm cz- looks smaller in real life! Cameras add size somehow…

    9mm cz- Also looks smaller in real life…

    Wait, you literally painted it? lol Or you Photoshopped it…

    I think the white does look bigger. A well cut stone will appear bigger as well. 7mm is a good size for your finger.

    I really hope you didn’t literally paint your stone. I think it looks the same size in both colors.

    It does look bigger but imo it looks prettier in the black. Bigger isn’t always better, however either way you go it’s beautiful

    I think the bee who said that was right 😉 but I’ll maintain that color still doesn’t give the full story.

    Not sure why ppl are bugging you for painting it. Photoshop won’t help you get as much of a true, in-person idea of it. Unless your question is more about how big it looks in photos than real life, lol!

    Anyway, I got the impression you bought this ring specifically to get a sense of the size, and I’m sure the paint can be easily removed again once you’re done with it this way.

    @bunnyharriet:  Where on Ebay did you get the ring? I think that’d make a cute RHR!

    @bunnyharriet:  I was worried you used a more permanent paint and that it would be a pain to take off. I just didn’t want you to damage your ring. I got paint on my ring once and it was a pain in the butt to get it off in the areas near the prongs.
