You can get whatever size you’re comfortable wearing. It’s your ring.

I have a 3 carat oval and I love it! It doesn’t have a halo around it, which I personally feel makes it seem less flashy/over the top.

Lol what! No.

Nah, 3 carat should be decent. If you love your ring big, go for it. You wear it, not anybody else. If others are jealous, let them be. They don’t pay for your ring so who cares what they say! My mentality on everything I own. 😆

Nope get your ring girl !!

best advice I ever got was to just own it. Never apologize or feel embarrassed to wear it. It’s your life, your marriage. What you and your fiancé decide on is your business only. Yes, a large rock does warrant a new type of attention but there will always be people who will make comments or give judgey glances…but that says more about them than you!! Friends, family and work friends should be happy and excited for your new chapter. Enjoy the engagement high 💖

Mine is just under 3. For the most part, I just wear my band anyway.

No. Get and wear what you want. I have large diamond rings and substantial diamond tennis bracelets I wear every day. I believe in enjoying jewelry and I assume most people think it’s fake. I don’t ever take off most of my jewelry- easiest way to lose it or wear out the clasp

You do you. And don’t take any nonsense from others if you get a negative comment.

It’ll depend on how it compares to your fingers. 3 carats on slender fingers may look huge, but ultimately to each their own.

Got for it! I don’t think anyone would say anything. I completely ogle my managers ring, but it’s just cuz I know its a Tiffany and I’m in love. 😍

I don’t think it’s too flashy - get what you want. I would say make sure you are comfortable wearing a ring of that size. After getting engaged with a good sized ring I am def much more aware that I have a very valuable piece of jewelry very clearly displayed. Not sure what I’ll do yet when traveling, particularly out of the country, but my fiancé has indicated he wants me to leave it home. If you’d feel the same, it may not be something you enjoy if you never feel good wearing it out.
