    I think if is proportioned perfectly! And very pretty- I could look at emerald cuts all day long!

    I also have a .75 ct, but a cushion, and we have about the same size finger, and I think yours actually “looks” bigger in the picture than mine. Nope, not a small ring at all!

    I don’t think it looks too small, but it’s on the smaller side. I don’t think you should switch to a round stone, the cost of switching to a round will be substantial and I don’t like them better than an emerald cut. Maybe if the setting were raised slightly, the diamond would look more “showcased” if that makes sense. I do think the stone looks like it needs a good cleaning, then maybe it would sparkle more and seem bigger. I think having a thicker setting also makes the center stone appear smaller- I have a 1.11 carat diamond on a 1.8mm band and I think the thin band makes the stone pop more.

    @daisymae900:  I’ve experienced ring shrinkage, too. I have a .60 carat round stone on size 4.5 fingers, so very similarly proportioned to what you have. Some days, it looks teeny tiny, and other days, it’s like WHOA! I’ve noticed my ring looks biggest from a 45 degree angle rather than a top or side view, so if you’re feeling a little little, look at it that way ๐Ÿ™‚

    @daisymae900:  Why do you care if people think it is small? I think that is really the question you should be asking.

    If you loved it when you chose it, then don’t stop loving it because people have bigger rings, or you are afraid of people’s opinions( opinions are like belly buttons…everyone has one and there is no getting away from them). If you genuinely want a different shape stone, then I say go for it! But I think that ring is really classy and beautiful. You could always consider getting a moissy too, if your heart really is set on bigger bling ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think it looks like the average size diamond ering that I tend to see on people (mine is average size, too). I think its beautiful and looks great on you!

    But no, I wouldn’t classify it as small. I actually think it looks really good on your hand.

    @lionsheart:  I have witch hands, too lol. I was hoping Fiance might go for something bigger than he did because of that, but life goes on, and he doesn’t think it is weird to upgrade, so maybe we will do that down the line.

    That’s definitely not a small ring! If anything, it’s quite big (but I’m from Continental Europe, slightly different standards here). It’s lovely and looks absolutely perfect for your hand. And I love that it’s an emerald cut, they’re sooo pretty!

    I don’t think it looks small at all. also, regarding comments about the color and clarity: other people can’t truly judge that based on a snapshot. ignore those comments.  you were asking us about size anyway. 

    I love the design, and it’s a very good size, IMO. not small, not big. I really love it!

    I would describe it as dainty and delicate, but not small. I think it suits your hands very well! And once you add a wedding band it will all feel much bigger. I love emeralds, don’t go round just because you think it’s small!

    @daisymae900:  My Fiance would be irritated if I chose a ring and then wanted to change it, especially if it incurs additional cost in addition to the time to exchange it and such. Check the trade in policy.

    I assume you’re talking about table – step cuts face up smaller than rounds, so that might be why you’re seeing shrinkage. That setting also looks pretty solid, so you might not get light refraction, which makes it look bigger. 

    I wear a size 3.5 – 4, depending on how bloated I am, and have a 3/4 ct. RB. It looks bigger on my finger than it’s total tcw in real life (thanks to short, stubby fingers!) because of the quality + my physiology. 

    You just need to try a bunch of different cuts, settings, etc. on your hand and stop comparing it to others. Someone will always rock a rock, but it doesn’t mean that everything is awesome.

    I would put it in the small category but not tiny or minuscule or anything. I think “small ” is just relative to your circle. There are always bigger/smaller rings just get whatever you can afford that woos your sparkly heart.

    I think it’s a nice size for that shape & setting
