For mothers day hubby is getting me a 5 stone 2 carat moissanite band in 14k gold. He came up with the design and idea all on his own.
I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with the size. Ive asked him to have the carat size reduced, but its a no go. I don’t want to hurt his feelings. I feel over budget and I’m pretty sure I’m going to feel embarrassed to wear something that blingy.
Does anyone have a band in that carat size they can show me? Or close?

I don’t have one, but I’m eyeballing this design for myself. I currently have a 5 stone diamond and platinum band but no ER. This ring would go fairly well with my current wedding band. It’s not small though, 2 carats in he band plus a huge center stone.

These are diamonds but it might give you an example of what you’ll be looking at.
My ering ring is approximately 2.25 to 2.5 carats. The diamonds are old cuts, however, which means that together they face up (appear from above)closer to 2 carats. I have a size 7.5 finger.
I really, really love my ring but I also really love jewelry in general. It does draw some attention but never negative.

I have two 5 stone rings. One is Moissanite and one is diamond. The stones in both rings are completely beautiful! You’ll love the Moissanite. I post photos of my rings to encourage you to do a few things:
1.) Get the 2 carat band, you’ll love it. My diamond band is 2 carats and the size is perfect.
2.) Learn from my mistake and choose your setting wisely. Not doing so will result in discomfort. ***No prongs*** on the outer stones. I picctures this below on my MoCo Moissanite band. I had to stop wearing and now have permanent callouses on my middle and pinky fingers from those damn prongs digging into those finger for a few years. The prongs should be short (like in my diamond ring pictured below) and not long (as in the MoCo example below). The outermost stones should be set ***without*** prongs. Again, I’ve included a photo of how that would look. When I rub my finger over the top of the MoCo band, it’s bumpy from the prongs. When I do the same with the diamond setting, it’s smooth as butter, no issues there. The style of setting is key.
