It’s lovely!  Especially on your hand, it works really well.  I don’t have a stone that size, but my best friend has about .35 for her center stone and her rings are just beautiful.  If people get weird about it, you can always tell them that you had really high standards for the specs of the stone like you mentioned, and people totally get that.  But I would be surprised if anyone said anything negative or shady.  It’s really very pretty.

taylance :  I love your ring and think the size is perfect!  Makes me want to go check their website!  I’m not a fan of big rings either.

taylance :  Your ring is beautiful! Weddingbee is the only place I see really big rings, I don’t see them that often in “my real world”. When I first joined, I had the same thoughts. Congratulations on your new ring. Wear it with pride!!!

ladyartichoke :  I think diamonds and gold are definitely more expensive in the U.K., but £2200 for a 0.35ct solitaire seems really expensive to me. Is it super high spec?

Well— I went for a ring with no gemstones at all! And my husband and I could have afforded large ones if I wanted to go that route (I very much didn’t—-I find the industry highly off putting) So don’t assume that everyone thinks the size of your gem is merely a reflection of your financial status and not your choice. My ring is a silver band—-it cost $60 and it’s perfect.

 

Your ring looks lovely. Enjoy it without insecurity just as I love my band

I think it looks very classy!  My previous ring was a .6 mounted above the halo.  It looked great.  Diamonds don’t have to be huge to be gorgeous. Yours is very high quality from the specs. Enjoy the moment!

It’s a lovely ring, congrats!

Mine is a 0.41 carat stone, and it’s really perfect. I don’t like how big diamonds look on me, so it’s pure personal preference that dictated my diamond size. We were in our early 30s when he proposed and weren’t bound by a budget, but spending a ton on a depreciating asset just wasn’t a priority for us. In fact, I just wanted a classic gold band with no stone. I love that look, it’s so elegant.

I think your ring is beautiful! We see so many large rings here on the Bee but I don’t think it’s very representative of most rings out there.  I tried on larger rings (1+ carat) and always prefered something more delicate.  My stone is about a half carat – it’s an heirloom so don’t know much about it but its 5mm.  IMG_8129

I think your ring is beautiful, and it’s the perfect size for your finger. I don’t think large stones look good on small fingers. Yours is just perfect!
