We found a great diamond in our price range that fits all of the criteria but I am on the fence as to if it will look too pretentious. The diamond is a round and 2.7ct. I always had a 2 ct in mind and never thought I’d be in a position to be thinking if a diamond is too big! I have large hands (size 9 ring) and am 6 feet tall so I am thinking it may proportionate. What I am worried about is that it might look ostentatious or that it may look out of place with my "lifestyle" which is driving a Honda and rarely getting super dressed up. I wish I could try it on in a standard setting but won’t know how it looks until it is made since the rings in stores only go to above my 2nd knuckle.
