    There are some bee’s here who have lofty budgets and aspirations, there are also others who say rings are too small with unnecessary critiques that aren’t even engaged in any capacity so I would ignore those comments and just focus on how beautiful YOUR ring is, because it is. If you are insecure based on some one elses opinion but love your ring I would tune out all negativity. BUT if you truly think you want to change the stones to something clearer/etc then do what makes you feel happy.

    @daisymae900:  ….and as a side note, a word of advice about emerald cuts in general….the light refraction that makes step cuts dynamic and different requires that light come in from the sides and the bottom more than the top or the pane….your stone is way down in there and the prongs along with the shank are hogging all the light and that may be causing the stone to go dark…if you take that thing in, tell them to put thinner prongs on it and hoist that bad boy up, you’re going to see a whole new gear out of your stone that you never saw before!

    No, i wouldn’t think it’s small. It’s smaller than some rings, but it’s not small.

    @daisymae900:  I think you’re overthinking it. Your ring is bigger than mine and I don’t think either of ours is small. I think they fit our hands just perfectly.

    I think it’s a great size for your finger.

    @HisBride515:  I assume this was targeted at me, but you didn’t have the courage to tag me. I was just answering OP’s question in an honest, and hopefully helpful, way. YOUR comments about ME are really “negative”, unneccessary, and frankly, against the TOS.

    I think it’s a really classy size.  It’s not big or ostentatious, but I wouldn’t call it small by any means.  It looks perfect on your hand.

    @SomedayHisBride:  Didn’t you work out a timeline with your SO, so you’re technically engaged? I didn’t quote you so I wasn’t referring to you, you quoting me complaining is harrassment and against TOS. Do you have some sort of guilty conscious or something? Stop and get over it, you know what they say when you assume things.

    @daisymae900:  No, I would not think it’s small. I think it’s medium, but very sparkly (because of the pave band). It looks very pretty on you!

    I have the same worry about my ring, and I would not be surprised if people think my ring is small when they look at it. It’s about 0.5 ct, 5 mm across, brilliant cut. 

    I think Weddingbee produces skewed ideas of what a normal gem size is for an engagement ring. Many people on here have pretty big stones (over 1 or 2 carats) and a lot of sparkle– halos etc. I’ve had the same yucky feeling that my ring is too small after spending too much time looking at ring threads here. Embarassed

    @daisymae900:  I don’t think that this ring is small at all. It’s lovely. I think that if you raised the diamond with thin prongs, you would probably feel differently. Is that a possibility? but hey! If you want an upgrade and have the means.. go for it! Ultimately, it’s up to you and what you love. I think a lof of us (myself included) have pangs of ring regret/ stone shrinkage from lurking in the ring boards here. Comparison really is the thief of joy. Once i got into that mindset, i love my ring!
