I would have to see it on your hand and I also think lifestyle would play into it. If you come from an area where people wear big rocks, then it might not be too big. If you came from my town where a 1 carat is considered large, it would def stand out.

You’re upgrading over 8 carats? Wow, lucky you!

1) I would think it’s fake if I saw that on someone.

2) I would fear for my LIFE with that thing on my finger!

BUT if you like it, go for it.

Somehow I’m guessing she’s not really upgrading to this ring ๐Ÿ˜‰

COMPLETELY depends on what it looks like on your hand. Seriously. A stock photo is not enough by any means. It’s gonna be big. Now, whether or not it’s a “bad” big or a “good” big will depend on how it appears on your particular hand. I think that it will help that it’s elongated because it spreads some of that ct weight out over the length of your finger instead of plopping it all in one spot like a round – so you picked a great shape. 

How do you feel about it? (Because that’s what matters) Do YOU feel like it’s too big, or are worried it’s too big? Because you, first and foremost, need to be comfortable.

with perfect colour and perfect clarity, flawless, that stone would be over $1million.

@SuzySchmoozy:  Ha yeah I just realized this is probably a joke. Tone doesn’t translate well online!

@mypinkshoes:  Good point. 

I know you recently had a 4 figure budget for your wedding band. Granted, I OBVIOUSLY don’t know the particulars of your finances and if you can now pull off a 7 figure ring upgrade then, congrats and good for you! Seriously! ๐Ÿ™‚ But were you aware of what that kind of ring costs? I don’t mean that to come off wrong. Just want to be helpful. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a Belletaire diamond.  It’s been heat and pressure treated.  Thus the pricing structure is different.  From the site:

Although pricing is at the discretion of independent retail jewelers, Bellataire diamonds are usually sold as a value proposition compared to the cost of non-Bellataire diamonds.

Key words: value proposition

I think it’s over-the-top, too showy. If the wearer is not a duchess, it will be out-of-place.

It’s hard to say without seeing it on your hand, though I generally don’t think a diamond could ever be “too big”!

It’s way too gaudy for my taste. It doesn’t look real.
