  2. Wisely Choose Your Stone Shape

    You can also opt for an elongated shape like oval, marquise, or emerald to make your engagement ring look bigger than its actual carat weight. These shapes tend to cover a larger area of your finger and hence make your engagement ring look bigger.

  3. Go Clever With The Right Prongs

    Choosing the right prongs puts your stone in a focal point, it not only highlights your stone but also makes it appear bigger and better. A 6-prong setting is considerably helpful to make your diamond appear larger. You need to choose slim prongs in the right number to amplify the stone size.

  4. Trick The Eye With Colored Stones

    Recognize which color stone will suit your partner’s personality as colored gems appear larger than a diamond in size. Blue, green, yellow, or pink, you have ample choice in colored stones. Choosing colored stone always helps if you are restricted to a certain carat weight.

  6. Cluster or Halo Which Is Better?

    Both ways you can make your engagement ring appear bigger without increasing the carat weight of the ring. In a halo setting, a center stone is surrounded by petite pave stone and creates a look as a whole.
