Alessandro :  Hi! It sounds like your SO is already a bit involved in the process. Are they also on the fence about the centre stone same as you? If you don’t know what shape they want for the centre stone I would just ask. It wont ruin your hard work or surprise.

The 14k vs 18k gold question I will leave for other Bees. I don’t know which is the better option.

Alessandro :  Makes sense! I misunderstood your post. Cushion cut either way, but just the actual cut-cut is of issue. Sorry! I am no diamond expert, but I’m sure that is clear from my message. Sorry about that! 

As for finger coverage, there are a bunch of ring posts on the Bee that you can both use to look at, as well as https://www.diamdb.com .

A lot of the ‘shrinkage’ phenomenon is how you feel. Ask her about the engagement rings she sees in real life. Do they seem huge or do they seem small/moderate? If everyone elses engagement rings seem large, she is on the fence, and the cost of the additional 0.5 mm is not prohibitive, I would go with the larger stone.

Another thing to keep in mind is- with the larger/smaller stone, what is the difference in how high the setting will be off her finger. Does she think that she will notice this difference? Will it tug on her clothes, is she clumsy (like me) and will whack it off everything, does she have a hands on job, etc.

It is so personal but I wish you both the best! Congrats on your engagement 🙂
