Can a diamond be too big?

1 carat diamond doesn’t seem too big for me...but if you're afraid the diamond'd look too big or ostentatious then choose an engagement ring setting that doesn't flaunt the diamond. What I mean is, consider a flush setting or a tension setting for your engagement rings, Flush and tension settings have clever designs that conceal the actual size of a diamond since these settings leave only a portion of the diamond (usually its table, or its top half) visible..
Here's a site I found where you can play around with the different size diamonds and settings and see what you think looks best.: zoara.com
but quite frankly I would have been happy to get a 1 carat diamond..:)
i think a diamond can be too big
it also depends are the design around it too...id prefer a classy simple ring of quality rather than this huge diamond which calls for way too much attention anyways
it needs to be wearable in a word setting...
A diamond can never be too big, as long as you can afford it. The bigger the better!1
a diamond is never too big
the bigger the better!
just look for the right style
style is more important than size. though a dismond is never too big.0
1 ct is not too big. I is the minimum. I would say 1 to 2 ct is good, anything bigger than 2 is just tacky imo0

1 carrot is fine. Something that can be easily seen.
Anything 4 carrots or more looks gaudy to me.
I would suggest that you get a quality diamond ring not just go for size. Look at it under a microscope. ( they will have one there) DO NOT use a jewelers loop that thing that you hold up to your eye.
Look at this link or look here link
I would try to stay away from a store at the mall. Honestly fly to Chicago "Jewelers Row" on Wabash ave. They money that you save & the quality of the ring you get will by far be a hugh savings over the cost of the plane ticket.0
