Oh thats great! Ring envy can make a girl crazy…

I’m not 100% satisfied with my e-ring band (it’s split shank w/ diamonds- it gets really dirty, really fast) & I’m still trying to figure out how to get a new setting out of my FI. lol

Yep, I used to think I wanted a 2ct round brilliant stone on a simple band ala Tiffany’s classic engagement ring. Then I realized that 2ct looked kind of silly on my hand, but when I said that 2ct center stone was too big for my hand, the salesman at Cartier nearly swallowed his cufflinks in shock. Apparently the ‘less is more’ camp is uncommon among brides-to-be!

At least if it is covered with diamonds you can’t see the scratches in the metal! I think there is no great solution to keeping your ring clean!

@cheerful–I have little fingers, and whenever I said that “the one carat looks too big on” I had one jeweler tell me I was stupid!

So glad you figured out that what you have is indeed what you wanted – that’s exciting! Sometimes it’s so nice to have a moment where you realize you have exactly what you want right then and are happy where you are … yay for that!

@cheerful, stacy marie, and jewishbride – it just depends on the market.  I work in high jewelry and in Japan brides prefer very small (like .2 carats) but perfect quality, in Europe they tend to prefer mid-sized stones of good quality, and in the US they tend to prefer very large stones of so-so quality.  You ladies are just not in line with your market’s tendancies.  In the end though, it’s your ring not the jeweler’s, get what you want and don’t give in to pressure!

I was floored that some rings I liked in the display I did NOT like the way they looked on my hand and vice-versa!!  That just goes to show you that while you think you may know what you want, it could definitely change when it’s “THE” ring!! 🙂

I love trying on rings at the mall! And I have found out that some of my “dream rings” actually look horrible on my small fingers, too.

Lol – they looked at me crazy when I told them I was more concerned about the BAND than the quality of the diamond ;-0
