Well, I was looking at rings and I tried on a whopper! After admiring all the beauties on PS, I had thought that bigger is always better. However, I tried on this insanely large radiant cut and it just didn't do it for me!

Thought I'd post a pic of it anyways :)




Do you ever find diamonds to be too big? Sounds insane!

I think that looks like a really good size! ;-)

When I was in Hong Kong a couple of years ago I tried on 20ct+!

I liked it so much I seriously considered making a run for it!

Wow, gigantic! Maybe without the side stones it would be more wearable? I wouldn't say no if someone gave it to me, though :lol:

Wow! I think this would be too big for my taste - I wouldn't wear it.

Was it really heavy? It looks heavy!

My friend has a 4 ct MRB... On me it looks ridiculous. I have small hands.

Too big...? What is this concept "too big" of which you speak?!

(I think it look fabulous!)

That's a beauty, but if it doesn't feel like the right one for you, you're better off not buying it.

Not at all. It looks just perfect size. It would be maybe even better without side stones.

I'm thinking without the side stones it would fit nicely on my size
6 3/4 fingers. But saddly, for my neck of the woods it would be too much. I'm sure with a little therapy I could manage though :lol: .

I have to say I think it looks a tad trashy. It's trying too hard to say 'look at me' for my taste. I think it's the setting, if it was just the main stone with a really thin simple band it would look much better.
