Do you girls ever judge your own e-ring?
I know what I have a very good quality e-ring, my friend who also love diamond always tell me I’m fine and my e-ring have a lot of fire that I should not worry about it
But when I look at it recently, I always found it doesn’t appear as big as it should be. Or it doesn’t spark the way my friend told me so. And in a bad lighting room, I found it’s not white enough. I know I shouldn’t doubt it and I picked the ring myself… but that feeling just keep growing stronger. I found the only time I see it spark is when I’m pumping gas or under the LED light in my washroom.
I think it all start from a comment from a common friend when she asked me if my center stone a .75 cart… when my stone is a 1.02. I start questioning my choice ever since in my brain. Did I choose a setting that make my stone look too small? Also doesn’t help when my FI told me the band is too thin and it would look nicer with a thicker band… ..
And the more I look at others e-ring photos on this board, I found my ring is very boring compare to all the beautiful setting you bees have….. ai..
How do you bee found love on your e-ring again? Please, I’m not bragging at all… It just this feeling grow stronger each day…

@gpiglet: I’m the same, i have a love / Meh’ relatiopnship with my ring. Sometimes i really like it and other times i don’t as much. I think in the long run i will be replacng my oval sapphire with a diamond. The center stone has never been my favourite in my oppinion its too dark and there’s a flaw in the center that drives me a bit bonkers. DH works at a diamond mine so were talking about replacing it next year possibly.
my ring for reference:

@gpiglet: I wouldn’t be too bothered by the .75 comment.. A lot of people have NO IDEA what carat sizes really look like.. And I think some people just know 1 carat is “big” and assume something that is probably 2+ is a single. When I got my loose 1.2 I thought it looked TINY and was shocked.

@MrsHoneyC: No No No!!!! You’re sapphire is soooo amazing!!!!!!
I have quite the love/not love relationship with my ring and I was honestly never bothered by it until I joined the bee. Everyone IRL has nothing but nice things to say (for the most part) but coming on to this site has made me realize that most people apparently just hate the style or ring that I chose, that being said I try and stay off of threads asking what people like/don’t like in erings.
What always makes me fall back in love with my set is not wearing it for a few days. I travel for work and do not take it with me because I’m far to petrified that I will loose it. I have a stand in set that I wear, but when I get home and put my actual set back on it feels so right.

Sometimes, I do! A teensy tinsy bit. But usually when it’s gross and I haven’t cleaned it in months, and I’m like “Eww… Why does it look like that?” Then once the stone is clean, I love it again!

Yes an no. Only cause sometimes I wish we went just a little lower in quality (esp since my husband told me he didnt’ really see a difference between a F & G or H, and a eye clean SI would have been just fine) for a bit more in size. But then no, because that tiny bit in size I could have got wouldn’t be that visually different anyways, so I should be happy with the quality.

Please don’t worry too much about the .75 comment, people who don’t see rings all the time are always surprised at their size in real life! I LOVE jewelry and I worked at a jewelry store for a bit in college and the first time I saw a 1 carat round solitaire (gorgeous!) I asked if it was a 1/2 carat! *facepalm. Luckily it was one we were selling and not on someone’s hand/someone’s ring, I would have felt TERRIBLE! Now I have a MUCH better idea, but really, most people don’t see rings that often and she probably felt bad for guessing wrong (and lower), it happens!!!

yeah, I know she dun meant it but it *ouch* me…. especially when I todl her it’s 1.02 ct. She asked again, 1.02 as for total cart? 🙁

I love my ring and have never doubted and likely will never doubt my love for it. I have no idea what the total carat weight is, and I’ve only received compliments from others.

ohhh, I love that idea. Maybe I will stop wearing it for a week or two to love my ring again.

Your ring is beautiful, don’t change it but if you really want diamond, maybe have your hubby source out another diamond for… hmm anniversary ring? :p
I must be nice to have a husband work in diamond mine, hahaha, my FI will be in trouble if he works at diamond mine. I just love diamond too much

@MrsHoneyC: no don’t replace the sapphire!!! or if you want to replace it, replace it with a sapphire that you like better. Your set is one of my favorites on the Bee and helped inspire me to get a sapphire of my own!
OP sometimes I stare at my ring and it’s little flaws will bug me, but at the end of the day I love my ring. Don’t let other peoples’ comments make you feel bad about your ring!

I obsess over stuff, but no, I love my ring.
I do sometimes examine it because I’m paranoid I somehow chipped my diamond or a pave stone will fall out… but other than that, I am happy with my choice. I second guess everything, though, so I am actually quite impressed that I don’t nitpick my ring haha.

I love my ring, but it also drives me crazy! It sits way to high and I sometimes regret the blue diamond side stones. I also don’t think the setting showcases my diamond as well as I would like. I always wanted a halo, but my mother talked me out of it when ring shopping. Sooooo more than likely I’ll change my setting. But I love my diamond to death and wpuldnt change it for the world.

I’m on the same boat with you. I love my center stone to death. It’s a 1.02, F, 3X None stone…. and yeah, my friends and family talk me into getting my current setting. I wanted a fancier setting but was convinced that it’s hard to be everyday wear. Plus, the setting itself is free of charge from the store owner. so I suck it up.
