  • poll: What Size Stone To Get (ring size 5.5)

    1.5 ct will look great, rock it!

    Stick with 1.25 ct, no bigger

    Go smaller, don't be gaudy!

    I got a larger-than-average stone & I couldn't be happier

    I opted for smaller (we could afford bigger) & I'm so glad I did [please explain]

    Mine is a 1.25. I was a little uncomfortable at first bc people would make comments. That went away and now people just say how beautiful it is. I hae completely adjusted. You might be a little uncomfortable at first, but will probably LOVE the ring so I would not suggest going smaller!!!!

    Also, not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but you should look at the diameter of the ring when comparing the size of it on your finger. mine is a 1.25 diamond but may look larger bc of the diameter of the ring…..it can make a significant difference in how it appears. With that being said, I would stick with the larger stone if it is eye clean and all of that.

    I think if your Fiance wants to get you a 1.5 ct and you like it. I am sure its a sense of pride for him to give you nice things.

    After reading your previous comments.. if it’s an anniversay ring, rather than an engagement ring I don’t think I’d go with 1.5 to be honest. Everyone is going to assume it’s an engagement ring, and then you’re gonna have to explain to everyone that asks that it’s not. That’s just my opinion, but personally I wouldn’t want to explain to everyone that sees it that you aren’t engaged. And then they’re gonna wonder why he’d get you such a giant diamond if you weren’t engaged.. and then they’ll probably ask if you if it’s really a diamond, which is another question I’d want to avoid. Maybe I’m crazy and wrong, but that’s just what I’d see happening..

    @october22:  I disagree. This is not exactly uncommon for people to do during a marriage as circumstances change and I cannot imagine that many people questioning her about it. They will just assume it is her ering or wedding set. And if they ask if it is her ering, a simple “yes” or “we got a new ring for our anniversary” would suffice. They are married, are people really going to question why she is wearing a ring that looks like an ering? Um, since they do not do this to people who did have an ering originally, and still wear it, I doubt it.

    I never had an ering originally and got a centre stone  after we were married. No one has questioned it and just assumed it is part of my set. Which it is.

    My ring is a 1.26 stone, which I absolutely adore.  But would I turn down a 1.5?  No way.  I don’t think it’s a HUGE size difference, but do what YOU are comfortable with.  If your husband can afford it and picked out a beautiful 1.5 stone for you, I say go for it.  However, if you downsize a little, it could leave a little more money to put toward your wedding band.  

    Here’s my ring.  My ring size is somewhere between 6.25 and 6.5.  (I have a 6.5 and it wiggles all over the place, but a 6.25 is too small.)

    I say go for it! Even though my ring is a .25,  I think that it looks good on my 3.5 finger. But of course, I HAD to buy myself a larger looking ring. Lol.
