Haha! I find that when I stop looking at rings on wedding websites, mine seems to look bigger because I guess I’m not comparing 🙂

I feel like mine has been growing lately, too!  Here’s my theory: because it’s colder, it’s spinning sideways a lot and falling into my pinky finger quite often.  Thus, I’m catching a side view and my ring has a high setting.  I LOVE the side and underside views of it, and they totally make the diamond look bigger!  I’ve always liked catching a side view of my ring for this exact reason.

@Brielle: Just wanted to say I absolutely love your name! I am considering using it if I ever have a daughter someday and never hear it too often. Lol, little off topic but I had to say it! Wink

I don’t have a diamond, I have a sapphire but I really don’t notice the size at all.

@HappilyEverAfter54: Mine seems to grow and shrink depending on the light, my company and my mood. On here it seems minute, around most people I see in person it seems pretty huge. Sometimes I wear my mother’s ring for a while to make mine seem bigger again when I put it back on.

@Brielle: Maybe THAT’S why DH loves it when my nails are painted red…

@SpecialSundae: Same here!

I always think my ring looks bigger when I view it in the mirror!  Good on days when I start having shrinkage issues hehe

My Fiance told me one day that my e-ring looks better when my fingers are painted. hehe!  I love this thread.  I noticed that my e-ring looked bigger today for some reason.  There are some days where I think its just big and sparkly.

@HappilyEverAfter54: It definitely made me feel good considering I’ve only got a 0.59!

@CaptainSpaulding: You are so right! But it’s like I can’t stop looking anyways!

LOL I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks it goes back and forth…I certainly notice a difference when it’s clean or in certain light.
