It looks beautiful! When I first upgraded my diamond for my 25th I thought it looked so big and weighed so much. Now, it doesn't!! LOL

I just got engaged a few weeks ago and I love this ring so much. I’m just worried the size of the diamond doesn’t fit my hand. Am I overthinking this?

Oh, for crying out loud -- if it were any smaller, you'd think you had chicken fingers. Enjoy the size and when you can, upgrade to something a little bigger to show off your lovely hand.

Congrats! As long as you love it, enjoy! But if you want, you can get another smaller solitaire or diamond band, for times when you don’t feel comfortable wearing the big diamond! ;)2=)2:cool2:=)2

Its beautiful. I will attest to the diamond shrinkage syndrome. Mine is about 0.9 carats and it feels like it gets smaller each year. You ring is stunning.

Definitely not!! And I agree with others, you are asking the wrong group of people hahaha. If it’s 10 carats or more maybe but for some that’s not even big enough .

It’s the largest of anyone I know and I feel a little self conscious wearing it. I’m hoping that feeling will go away.
Don't you fret, do you love your diamond- yes? That's all that matters. Yes Diamond Shrinking Syndrome is real.

A 3c (9mm) on a size 5 finger is AMAZING! Your stone looks like a great performing diamond too. Please post the specs of your diamond and more pictures of your ring.

....and thanks to all the comedians who posted on this thread...needed all those laughs today!

I wear my 3ct (size 6) shamelessly. Started off with smaller than a carat, then 2 carat, then 2.5 carats, and now just over 3. Don’t you worry; it will feel smaller over time.

If people tell me “that’s such a huuuuge diamond,” I don’t deny it, I just say “yes it is.” And it usually ends there. If people say “your husband must be so rich!” I’ll say “he’s a very generous man.” Nobody has ever asked me how much it cost and if they do I’ll say “enough for us.”

Your ring is beautiful and I hope you can find a way to wear it as proudly as you feel about your engagement. Congratulations!

I like it too and I’m not always a bigger is better for daily wear. I actually slightly downsized a stone.

Read through this whole thread and still don't understand the question. :confused: :D Haha!

But really: I think your ring looks perfect. It's classic, elegant, and timeless. It absolutely does not look "off" or otherwise like it doesn't belong on your finger. Not even slightly. I hope after a little more time, you become comfortable and can enjoy it completely. Congrats on your engagement! :appl:

This is 3 carats on a size 5.25.

I’m still worried it looks a little too ostentatious.
I can attest that last year we upgraded to a 3.6ct and at first I was even a bit embarrassed by it. Now, just a year later it looks average to me though I still get comments on how "big" it is. I do now see how some say I may even desire bigger one day now, though last year briefly I thought it may have been a mistake!
