nicole1276 :  I’m so late on this reply but from what the jewelers told me & my boyfriend  while we were shopping for rings, they say the 6 prong rings make the diamond look the roundest. In the picture, you have 4 prongs which is going to make your diamond give off the boxy look and less round than it actually is. I honestly don’t know if I can recommend getting six prongs because I’ve read that the four prongs are supposed to make your ring look bigger but to me six prongs a lot of the times will make a diamond look rounder/bigger.  I think your diamond looks perfect! Not too big or too small.

nicole1276 :  I believe your setting is doing your diamond an injustice. You need a higher setting with a thinner band, perhaps a reverse taper…and then you’ll see that baby POP!

nicole1276 :  maybe a higher set setting will bring out the size in you’re stone?? I would look into a new setting overall

It probably looks small to you because you’re on here looking at all these pics of rings and pictures make rings look much bigger. I have the same issue.

I agree with PPs about perspective from seeing rings on the bee making your ring appear ‘smaller’. I suggest taking a break from looking at ring threads for a couple weeks and see if that changes things. Another thing I’ve seen suggessted is not wear your ring for a day and then put it back on, I’m sure you’ll be shocked at how large it appears after not wearing it for a day!

If after trying these two things you still feel like your stone is too ‘small’ I’d suggest getting it placed in a setting with a smaller width band or even a knife-edge band. I have a 0.5ct stone placed in a knife-edge solitaire setting, I think the narrow look seen from overhead makes my stone appear larger.

I just got my ring, I love it!😍it’s .75 carat and my finger is sz 5.25. Someone on here said they think their stone looks bigger from farther away. Me too! People said specs make a difference in size! I didn’t believe it but now I see it’s true.  L think my setting makes it look bigger too which also wasn’t planned! So happy!

I think it looks beautiful and large! Mine is a .76 ct oval in a rose gold setting with platinum head and prongs. I too think the same thing after looking at huge stones on social media, but it’s perfect for me 😸 my ring size is a 6.25.

nicole1276 :  I do not think it looks tiny.  I actually think it looks fairly substantial on your hand.  Its beautiful.

Someone revived this thread so I figured I’d show my .72 caret diamond ring off! My ring size is 5.50 and I do believe that the caret weight is perfect.

I have a .75 and a size 5.75 finger. Yours definitely appears to be larger than mine and covers much more of your finger. I couldn’t be happier with mine though. It’s exactly what I’d always wanted.

Mine is a .70! I’m really pleased with the size.

I think it‘s the perfect size for your finger! Mine‘s even smaller – it‘s .7 and some days I feel like it‘s rather small (my fingers swell a lot) and sometimes it seems so much bigger 😀
