stephygb92:  Thank you for sharing your story. I love the part where your husband came to the aid. He also has great taste! It does flatter your hand, and you’re absolutely right about the classic design.

This! IRL my ring is perfect for me, but the internet ruined my reality. I have a 1.16ct center stone on a size 7. It’s perfect

Great reminder about what is important! Also, your ring looks perfect! When I was at the jewelry store, the people there were trying to get me to get a bigger stone. It’s lab-created sapphire so measured in milimeters vs. carats, and there actually wasn’t even a price difference, so it wasn’t an issue of money. They thought 7mm looked better, but I really wanted 6mm because it just looked more proportional with my small hands (size 4.5). It is custom made and I don’t have it yet so no picture evidence for this posting. 🙂 A big stone is just not my style, and I’m totally comfortable with my choice.

The internet really skews reality! 2 carat stones started to seem small to me when I looked at them on WB. When we picked out my ring, I thought a ~1 carat would look so small! It definitely doesn’t. I think your ring is the perfect size.
