@bkm0826:  Don’t upgrade.  It looks fantastic.  You Mother-In-Law must be gutted that despite her money manipulation your Fiance still managed to get you the perfect ring. 

Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better.  You want a ring to complement your hand not overpower it.

Do I have insecurities about my ring?  It is tempting to want a bigger diamond or a more flamboyant setting, especially as there are many lovely rings on this site.  And diamond shrinkage can set in if I look at it for too long. 

But really my ring is perfect.  It’s a gift from my husband and daughter.  Great quality stone, great setting.  Understated but sparkly – just like me.

We tend to < (and I use that term loosely) have smaller E-rings here in the UK And I worry that my ring doesn’t have a large enough centre stone. I see some really HUGE diamonds on here which I totally love by the way!

however I did choose it myself so I must love it really. Also pave setting can be a little delicate and I worry about the stones fallong out.

I picked out my ring and do I love it, but I do not get as many compliments on it as I thought I would. 🙁 I worry its too dated or “strange”

@missodie:  Thank you!

 

This is my engagement ring. I had to have the bezel shaved down a little yesterday because it came out uneven in some areas. Still a spot on the bezel that bugs me, but it’s significantly better now. Other areas of concern are the orientation of the stone in the setting (I wish I could rotate it like 25 degrees) and some of the milligraining isn’t as crisp in some spots as others, though I realize this is unlikely to bug anyone but me. That said, I do love it (apparently I have a “thing” for art deco halos) and it’s completely right for me.

I wish I’d known more about alternative stones and spent more time shopping. We bought my ring the first time we went shopping. I love it, I don’t wish it was bigger or smaller or brighter or less bright. I just wish I’d considered more options.

But then, I’ve been wearing it nearly 4 years, I definitely went through a phase of thinking it’s not big enough, when seeing everybody’s rings here. I’m way over that.

I don’t think I have any insecurities about mine! Sure a bigger diamond would be great but the size of mine doesn’t make me insecure about it. And I love love love my unique setting. I would be ok with wearing this ring as is forever without ever upgrading. No ring insecurity over here!
