haha so true. I asked my mom what her e-ring was the other day (actually just asked her to describe it to me because it was stolen and I don’t remember ever seeing it) and she had no idea what the ct weight was. Even the ring my dad got her for their 29th anniversary which is a 3 stone oval cut that I would guess is AT LEAST 2 ct total weight (prob a bit more actually) she had no idea. Pretty is pretty. πŸ™‚

Funny, my mom asked how big my ring was, too….then i told her….and dad upgraded her with 2 more carats. Oye.

Moms are funny. But you’re so right…it’s the symbol and what’s behind it that matters most. Most of the people in our families in very long relationships (30+ years) don’t have ginormous rings by any means, either!

good post! My mom’s diamond is even smaller, she has what is called a “chip”…my parents have been married for 38 years…Dad didn’t have a lot of mone when he proposed. Mom’s ring has never left her finger (except to do dishes) She’s happy with her ring… I have a .5 carat and I’m just as happy with mine….

Very good point! Sometimes we get caught up in the not so important things, and need a little perspective πŸ™‚

I love this story! My parents have been married for 40 years and I know that my mom has no idea what size her diamond is and doesn’t care. I guess I am a lot like her (as much as I hate to admit it) because I have no idea what size I have either and like her I could care less. =)

Thank you for sharing!!

Yep!  My parents have been happily married 32 years and my mom had no idea how big her diamond (which she lost a few years ago was). Dad said it was .25 carat!  It didn’t matter to her.

Here! Here! That is definitely something to remember. Extremely well said and a very valid point.

Oh, and my parents are hitting 35 years in June and my mother doesn’t even have a diamond in her ring. Food for thought.
