I just had this feeling today for the first time and I don’t like it! I LOVE my ring and I think it’s absolutely perfect for me and everything I wanted: not too much, not too little and classic. However, a girl I went to college with recently got engaged and her ring is big and even though I would never have chosen that style or size, I find myself a little green with envy. 🙁 Tell me I’m not alone….

I’m pretty sure that’s a standard feeling! 🙂 I ADORE mine but my friend got engaged this weekend with a Tiffany. It’s not my style at all but I was still like “Wah!” for a moment 😉

Yes absolutely. I think it’s only normal. Ring envy is inevitable if you hang out on the ring threads. Everyone has such gorgeous rings.

Of course! I don’t necessarily want to switch with people, but I definitely find myself swooning over others’ rings.

Every now and then I drool over other’s rings, nothing wrong with that! In the end I love my ring and I would never trade it for another… but that doesn’t mean I can’t admire someone else’s! 🙂

Oh sure. I have more than one shirt, more than one pair of shoes, more than one purse. It’s totally normal to enjoy several accessories at the same time. After all, the ering is just an accessory with a memory attached.

I like eternity bands so when I see other eternity bands similar to my wedding band or nicer even I get that feeling… but I dont like e-rings so I never feel that way towards them

I adore my engagement ring. But my old college roommate’s engagement and wedding rings have the most beautiful and sparkly diamonds I’ve ever seen. And that’s okay. 🙂

My DH’s cousin was dating his Girlfriend for several years, they are a few years older than us and both make a lot of money for the city they live in. The last few times I saw them before they got engaged, both of them were sizing up my ring, either staring at it or asking questions. Then all the sudden they got engaged (great!) and low and behold, the girlfriend is sporting a ring JUST SLIGHTLY bigger than mine. Same shape, cut, color, etc. but about .25 carats larger. I really did admire her ring because it’s kind of fun looking at a bigger version seeing what it would be like if we had gone larger, but ultimately I kind of suspected that was done on purpose so it didn’t really bother me as much.

I love my ring, but I definitely get that feeling sometimes. Especially towards my mom’s for some reason. It’s not something I’d ever want personally, but I looove her ring.

I know what you mean! I am in LOVE with my ring but every once in a while I’ll see one on the boards that makes me DROOL. Even though I know the thing would look ridiculous on me because of my small hands, or that I don’t have the personal style/attitude to pull it off…
I think it’s normal. You don’t love yours any less, you just love others’ rings for different reasons!

Totally normal. I love mine, and sometimes think, ooh it would have been nice to have a beautiful halo, or a center stone just a little bit larger… but at the end of the day, mine is perfect for me and the perfect balance of the ring I dreamed of, and not spending too much on it.

Of course, I think its only natural to swoon over someone else’s ring, wedding, dress, house, career, whatever!
It doesn’t mean we are any less happy with what we have, we are creatures of opinions and will see things out there that we like better then what we have 🙂

Of course! Completely normal. I can appreciate all sizes and styles, & could look at ring pics all day. But above all else, I adore my ring because my fiance picked it out for me & proposed to me with it. I actually thought I lost the ring this past weekend for about an hour- I was a nutcase, already balling! Well, I found it and now have fallen in love with it all over again
