mel2 :  LOL I faced the same struggle when I was trying to look at others’ rings. It felt kinda weird to ask to see their rings randomly when they’d been married for years. From a distance, all rings looked pretty much the same and I am unable to tell one from the other without staring at it up close. Also, I didn’t want anyone to know about it until after I had the ring.

sinsyddy :  😂 I don’t normally tell things on my own unless I’m asked 😄 unless it’s a huge life event. I did tell people at work after I was “officially” engaged but until then, all they knew was that I was seeing someone (after I dated my SO for 6 months).

I think the proportions look great on your finger with the band.

Others have said it, but most regular people don’t pay any attention to rings.  I am obsessed with the ring boards, but even I never paid attention to others’ rings until it became relevant in my life.  Keep that in mind.  Also, who cares what anyone else has? Get what you like.  People have different styles, regardless of budget.  I had a moment of panic because I’m getting an 8mm moissanite because I love that size on my hand.  But everyone in my area has smaller rings of a carat or less.  I didn’t want people to assume I spent $30k on my ring!  But really, I shouldn’t care!  I went back to try it on again when I was worried and fell in love again.  So at the end of the day, it’s what I like.

That’s a beautiful set! And the stone is the perfect size for your hand. If the stone was any bigger, it would be too much, especially with that wedding band. If you want to make the center stone pop a little more, you could always have it set in a thinner band. It looks lovely the way it is though!

First, I think your set is beautiful, and second… I just want to let you know that 1 ct, of either a moissanite or a diamond, isn’t considered the norm usually. The average size people wear where I live really depends on their economic status and where they’re from. Most middle class people that I see wear anywhere from a 1/4 ct. to a 3/4 ct. at most. Upper class ladies usually wear 3/4 ct to 2 ct. And my engagement ring’s centerstone is 3/8 ct. Spending that much on an engagement ring isn’t even remotely in most people’s budgets. Consider yourself very lucky to even worry about this issue!

 

That said, I like your set and I think you should go with what you’re comfortable with. If you don’t enjoy wearing larger stones, that’s fine and the people in your workplace should be mature enough to respect and celebrate that. If not, you’re working with materialistic snobs. :/
