Definitely not too big for a size 10 finger. I think 3 carat cushion would be amazing on any size finger!

I think that size would be great for your finger! My finger was an 11 when I got engaged (now down to a 9.75 because I lost some weight) and though my stone itself (a moissanite) is only about a 1 carat equivalent, it’s in a setting that provides coverage equivalent to 3 carats/maybe a touch more, and it feels perfect! Basically imagine that the rose petals on the setting were just more stone haha Perfect coverage, I’d say!

Unfortunately for you I don’t have very traditional rings so I’m not sure how much this will help, but my ring size is a 10 and my engagement ring is a .87 carat pear shaped salt and pepper. I wish it was slightly larger for more finger coverage but I honestly feel it’s a decent size. 

This next ring is my anniversary ring I wear as a RHR and it’s a sapphire, but the center stone is a little over a carat oval with a halo and I feel like this one is a pretty perfect size

I have a size 8 finger and a 2.5CT stone, so might be similar coverage to a 3CT on a size 10? Not sure how these things convert lol. But here’s an example that’s close enough!!

Cushions have a lot of weight at the bottom of the stone, so they face up smaller than a round, oval or pear. I have a couple of 3.2 carat cushions (actually one of them now belongs to my DIL to be) but I’m not a size 10, just a 6.5 or 7. They don’t seem too big at all to me.

@lieeleei:  This is an N color cushion. Warm, but not yellow.

This is yellow:

Both are 3.2 carats. Dont be afraid of a little warmth. Top photo is an antique cushion aka old mine cut, and the yellow is a modern cushion.

@lieeleei:  I am a size 8 and got a 2 carat center (I color according to IGI so more like J) and have a halo which does show contrast sometimes but I don’t mind. Here it is in some different lighting conditions in case you change your mind on halo. (you can also request jeweler to do lower color diamonds for halo – I personally love how much high quality diamonds sparkle and shine white even when it does show color contrast to center stone) and yes a cushion will face up much smaller than round or oval. 

I do not think 3 carats will be too big. If I didn’t do halo I would have done 3-3.5 carats.




you can really see the contrast here and the warmth of my center stone but i dont mind

Random question, but did you have a jeweler size you? I only ask because all my “fashion” rings are all size 10, I think my claddagh ring is an 11. But when the jeweler measured me for my engagement ring, I was more like a 8 to 8.5, we ended up doing like 8 3/8ths (I know it’s weird but platinum can’t be sized as easily) and with the winter, my ring has been super loose. I think style wise, if you have the money for a larger stone with simple setting go for it! But if you are just looking for “coverage” you could look for a nicer smaller stone and add embellishments or set east west. Or go for a different cut that is shallower and has more weight at the top of the stone. I have a 2.04 ct natural ruby that is shallow and set east west. Like I said my fashion ring size is a 10. Good luck!
