    No your ring (diamond size) is not small. If you compare it to bigger stoned rings then yes it is smaller but to everything under .75 it is larger.

    If you are the kind of person who feels that the concept of finger coverage is important then you may want to go bigger because you will always be comparing your stone size and how much of your finger it covers to those who have bigger stones And how much their stones cover their fingers.

    I am a size 5 1/2 ring and I got a single natural blue diamond pear shape that was just over .75 carat.  I told my fiancee that I didn’t want something huge because I didn’t want to perpetuate this idea that you need a huge rock to feel good about your ring and yourself.

    And like I said, I had ONE diamond and a plain band.  GURL, you got diamonds all up on that thing! LOL!  And it’s beautiful!

    And if anybody says anything, just ignore!  I even had one of my husband’s cousins deliver an oh-so-devastating “oh.” when she saw my ring.  (She changed her own setting and added all kinds of bands encrusted with diamonds after her wedding!!  Originally she had a modest setting with one diamond.)  If anyone has an issue with your ring, it is their own insecurities, not you!

    OWN IT! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hey all! Just a friendly request to keep this one on topic and try to avoid the back and forth. ๐Ÿ™‚ (P.S. Happy Friday!)


    @daisymae900:  I think your ring is gorgeous and so not small!

    @daisymae900:  I have and love emerald cuts, and I think your ring is a great size! I agree with other PPs who have said maybe you can thin out the prongs and raise the stone up a little bit out of the setting. Can’t tell for sure from the pictures, but it looks like you have bead/post prong? Switching to a claw prong might make a big difference!

    I think it looks fine on your hand but also agree with some PPs about swaping out a different setting that would be more flattering for an emerald cut diamond.

    Your ring is beautiful!  These boards are bad for ring envy…..happens all the time.  My original e-ring has a one carat round and honestly when I first got it I thought it was HUGE…after having it a while “shrinkage” (yes, it’s a real thing) set in and now it doesn’t feel so huge anymore…still beautiful and I love it though.

    Don’t get sucked into the bigger is better….because that’s not the case.  I love how your diamond is set and wish I had something like that…it would be more comfortable to wear daily. 

    Keep your ring as is….it’s lovely!!

    This is so true. It doesn’t matter how big your ring is; there will always be someone with something bigger to compare it to. Or a blingier setting or a different cut stone. I guarantee that if you continue to compare your ring against others (especially online), you will always be disappointed or second-guessing your own. Your ring is beautiful and looks great on your hand. Don’t let the comparison ruin how you feel.

    I think it looks nice on your finger, its the perfect size.  My ring is smaller than yours and my finger size is bigger so maybe thats why i dont find it too small

    First- I think it’s lovely!

    I remember seeing rings (like any other female age 5 and up who cares) and thinking big and sparkly is normal. It seems too like practically speaking a carat or smaller really works well for a ring you would wear all the time for the rest of your life. I don’t see a lot of people wearing the larger ones regularly after they’ve been married for several years.

    You’re asking if *I* would think your ring looks small. And yes, I think it looks small. That doesn’t mean I don’t like it, it doesn’t mean I think you have no money, it doesn’t mean I think your fiancé doesn’t love you, it doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s gorgeous, it doesn’t mean I pity you, it doesn’t mean if my boyfriend gave me that ring I would say no and be disappointed, it doesn’t mean you wanted a bigger ring, or I think you should get a bigger ring, it doesn’t mean I think it is “too small” for you, but the question is, does it look small, and my answer is yes. I just think it looks small. Again, small and “too small” are different things, I don’t think it’s “too small”.

    I am divorced. I had a .8 flawless round. It was gorgeous. I thought it looked small on my hand. And all the things I said above applies, I am not saying I wanted bigger, I am just saying finger coverage wise, it looked small on me. I would see women with smaller carat rings and the rings looked so big on them, mine didn’t. I have a size 4 ring size but gigantic long witchy skinny hands, like Angelina Jolie, so on me, even 1 carat just looks small.

    @HisBride515:  She asked for an honest opinion and I don’t think there is anything wrong with giving her one. Every one is entitled to their own and when you post something that asks “do you think this is small?” you either are fishing for compliments asking people to tell you how they think it is big or perfect or are wanting people to respond with their thoughts.

    My center stone is .75 as well so of course I don’t think your ring is small. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yours is super blingy!

    I don’t think I’ve EVER seen an engagement ring and thought “gee that thing is small” might have something to do with my small engagement ring but even before that.

    I second (third? Tenth? I dunno) everyone who said they think “woah big” before they thing “gee small” so I wouldn’t worry too much if I were you!
