I would like to change only the size of the bullet not the text of item as mentioned in the question. I tried following approach but it changes the bullet size as well as text size. Thanks in advance for your help.

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
  {\large
   \begin{itemize} 
    \item Item 1 
    \item Item 2 
    \item Item 3
    \item Item 4
   \end{itemize}  
  }
\end{document}

Bigger or smaller? – egreg Mar 26 at 18:29
    
@egreg: I would like to see for \large size. – user3669801 Mar 26 at 18:32
    
The reason why {\large...} doesn't work (well, it works, but it changes anything) is that the scope of \large is restricted to the itemize environment, but since there is no other font change (usually) this has an effect on all typesetting. – Christian Hupfer Mar 26 at 18:48

The optional argument of enumitem can be used with label={\large\textbullet}, but this will not produce the best result always, perhaps, tiny bullets may have to be raised a little bit.

As can be seen, the font size of the normal text isn't changed.

There's the font=... option as well, meant for the label font (which can be 'any' command, from font size change to complete font shape change)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

{ Tiny bullets: \tiny \textbullet}
\begin{itemize}[label={\tiny\raisebox{1ex}{\textbullet}}]
\item Item 1 
\item Item 2 
\item Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}  

{Normally sized bullets: \textbullet}
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1 
\item Item 2 
\item Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}  

{Large bullets: \Large \textbullet}
\begin{itemize}[label={\large\textbullet}]
\item Item 1 
\item Item 2 
\item Item 3
\item Item 4
\end{itemize}  
\end{document}
