SarahTee:  I am in the same boat as you. My center is. 5 but the tcw of both my rings is almost 3 ct. My Fiance proposed with both the wedding band and E ring. He wanted me to wear both because they really set off together. I get questioned about this still.  I will be getting another band to wear close to my heart on the big day. I was down for a while too, thinking that other people’s diamonds were bigger. But my quality is waaaaaay better. Would rather have the bling than a dull bigger stone.

ladyamalthea:  Hmm… there’s nothing about my ring I don’t like that’s anything to do with the design or diamonds. I still love what I chose and I think it’s just enough right before the point of being too much hehe. The only thing I don’t like are the scratches and one or two deep grooves in the platinum – TOTALLY MY OWN FAULT THOUGH. Not my ring’s! They’ll be polished out soon though ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the only change I would make to my ring is to have prongs holding the center stone. Fiance has said the same thing. But I do love it just the way it is since he designed it all on his own ๐Ÿ™‚

I love my ring, and I picked it out, but my only regret is that the prongs that hold my solitaire in place make the center stone look like a princess cut instead of RB like it actually is. I originally wanted a six-prong ring but the setting I fell in love with only came as a four-prong. And I think part of the reason it looks more square is because my center stone is I think .45 carat, so it’s pretty small. But I love how sparkly it is overall, and I love love LOVE the milgrain detailing!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my ring, but if I could change anything I would make the band thinner & more dainty with more pave.  Change the prongs to the claw type & maybe put a ring of stone around the basket.  Yep then it would be perfect— until I see more rings and get more ideas in my head

I love my ring and truly feel like it’s the prettiest piece of jewlery I’ve ever seen. I like it so much more than anything I’ve seen in person. But I was a little insecure that people would judge my SO for choosing a ring with small diamonds, especially given the industry he works in. I actually posted about this worry here, and I feel much better knowing it’s largely unfounded. My family and friends knows that my SO is an amazingly generous guy, and that he didn’t get me a small ring out of stinginess. He just picked what he thought I would like best and that ring happens to have small diamonds. He also gave me a pair of 2 carat diamond earrings (1 carat each), just in case, but obviously, I don’t mention the earrings when people ask to see my ring. So if they judge, well, thats just too bad.

I love my ring, and it’s basically everything I wanted; my center stone appears a tad yellow to me, but is overall clear and very sparkly. I have white gold which is pretty classic and I like it, and on the underside there is a little peekaboo diamond with a filgree, which I love. <br />Sometimes I wish the setting was a tad lower, because I do smack it on things from time to time! I have big fingers, too, so sometimes I wish it was bigger – but when I tried on larger stones, I didn’t like the feeling. 

My fiance gets wayyy more compliments than I do, and her ring is .04 carat, but rose gold, so dainty and elegant.

I adore my ring, and I would never choose a different one. I get insecure about the center stone choice, as we went with a white sapphire and I feel like people who know what the stone is are very judgey. It’s a near-perfect, naturally mined white sapphire though, which is actually one of the rarer stones in existence- most white sapphires are lab created and heat treated. I feel weird explaining that to family members who give me judgey eyes, though. It’s very beautiful and has a unique, icy sparkle that’s all it’s own. 

I also get insecure sometimes about the style. All of my college friends are in love with halos, but that is totally not me. Some random girl in my class the other day asked to see my ring and was like, “oh, that’s cute.” I know that most women my age are into the thinner bands and engraving around the band is not really in style right now, but my ring suits me perfectly. I feel so special because my fiance picked this out especially for me, knowing it would look perfect on my hand, and it is completely handmade, from the cutting of the stone, to the hand-engraving around the band. There is truly not another ring like it in all the world, despite its simplicity. I definitely wouldn’t trade for a diamong.

Im the first to say I love that my ring is different from the average, but I havent actually recieved any compliments apart from one ‘hmm pretty’. It does tend to make me a little insecure, especially seeing as this ring was picked from three that I narrowed it down to. Someone times I wonder if I should have waited and let my Fiance chose something a little pricier. My other worry stems especially from the fact that we’re eloping And not having a wedding,mi do wonder if its not very bridal, like if people dont even realise it’s an engagement ring. 

@choachhw I love your ring, it’s dainty and elegant and I think it looks really timeless.

Your ring is gorgeous. If anyone tells you it’s too small, that’s just ridiculous. People say things to be just to be jerks.

I kind of wished that we got the 1 carat instead of the 0.75 carat ering…however the price jumped A LOT and I still wanted a pretty sparkly wedding band too… After all the huss and fuss of planning a wedding…we decided to elope (which was the best decision for us for sure) and because of that i was able to get a beautiful eternity wedding band. Couldnt be happier ๐Ÿ˜›
