No pics to show, but it is definitely huge! May be a bit crazy for thinking it looks small, yes ๐Ÿ˜‰

That is a beautiful stone!  A very classic shape too! I think it will look a little larger once you set it.  Here are a few inspiration pictures I found on Pinterest:

In My Humble Opinion, Verragio has stunning solitaires with gorgeous details you’d never expect. For example:

This is my 2.4 on a 5.75 so slightly smaller diamond and slightly larger finger. I definitely thought my diamond looked bigger once it was set. I had a setting custom made in brushed white gold with a hammered yellow gold band (to match my husbands.) Adding these small details to an otherwise pretty standard setting really made all the difference to me. I think Lauren B has some really unbelievable settings though most are a big glamorous for my taste. You could add emerald cut diamonds as side stones for your e ring or use some of the $$ saved to get an emerald cut temerity band  I think that would create a nice contrast

I was in a similar situation.  Had my heart set on emerald cut but was gifted an OEC.  I ended up getting it set with baguettes so I still have some of that step-cut vintage look.  I love it!

I’ll attach some pics of mine (which is much smaller than yours!)  another I tried on and some internet pics!

A solitaire would be fabulous too and so classic but wanted to show you another option if you’re a step-cut lover like me!

my vintage ring is only 1.8, but from the late 1920’s and I LOVE the art deco setting. (also it’s a size 8 so a 2.5 on a 5.5 will be HUGE)

Mine is a 1.5 OEC moissanite so it’s a little smaller than yours and my finger is a 6.5 so that’s a little bigger. I love the simple look because it lets the stone shine and is so sophisticated looking imo. Excuse the awful nails lol I was waiting until today to get them done for wedding haha
