There are threads for bees with big rings and small and in every thread bees seem to know exactly what caret their ring us, cut etc and I am mystified.
No offense meant it’s cool if you know and care but honestly, I have NO IDEA what caret my ring is at all and i don’t care either way. The ring was bought by my FI and the meaning is enough for me to cherish wither it cost him 1.00 or 1,000,000.00 I never asked him for details all I know is it’s diamond and white gold, it sparkles and is perfect and that’s enough for me.
So bees are there any others out there who don’t know or care about caret of their diamond?

Well, I didn’t care, but I helped my FI pick it out. He knew exactly what I wanted, and he delivered!
Otherwise, if he had picked it himself, I wouldn’t have any care of what the specs are..

@babydollgirl: Even though you don’t care, you should still have a spec sheet, so you can get it insured in case it gets lost or stolen. I can never remember the specs on my rings, but I do have the spec sheets; just in case.

I do know mine, but I don’t “care” what the carat weight is. Mine is much smaller than most bee’s & its perfect for me either way! 🙂

we were watching big bang theory the other night and howard bought bernadette a half carat ring and hubby asked me if that was good – i’ll be honest i told him by todays standards i didnt think it was but then bernedette (the character that is) is a tiny person so it would look much bigger on her hand than my hand, im nearly 6ft so petite im not
hubby is clueless to my ering stone size even though we bought it together and he pays the insurance on it and its going to be upgraded by christmas (im still deciding what type of band i want) to at least a 2ct because i want bigger sparkely shiney thing because i can

i dont even know. i have 5 small diamonds and i think colllectivly it might be 3/4 carat but since its a series of diamonds idk for sure. i know my wedding ring has a carat ruby but i picked it out based on the color not the size. i wanted a RED ruby and since im slightly color blind it had to be a RED RED ruby since most reds look pink to me.

I have no idea how many carats mine is either, and it really doesn’t matter. FI does have the paperwork with the info and the only thing I wanted to know off of it was the metal (14k white gold) just so that we could get my wedding band in the same metal. I want them to match but I am just happy that he picked something that represents us and suits my size 4.75 finger 🙂

i used to work at an auction house and have handled 100’s of diamond rings.
Some women are really into diamonds – Marilyn Monroe even sang about it – I get it, they are incredible. Sadly, many people lost their lives getting these darn things out of the earth and I wish they weren’t a fashion. Had my fiance now husband ask me, I would have declined getting a diamond ring but he didn’t and now I wear one. Feels weird.

Nope, I have no idea either and I don’t care in the least.

i don’t know either, and i don’t care. But i am CURIOUS. FI doesn’t know anything about the ring he bout me except what the stone is called, haha. I asked him about specs (and honestly, if he would have told me, it probably wouldn’t have meant anything to me be cause i don’t know what’s “good” and what’s “bad”) just because i’m curious by nature and i like to know EVERYTHING.

My ring is TINY by weddingbee standards. I also have no clue about specs as we bought it from an antique shop- even though it’s a modern white gold solitare ring- but to guess I’d say it’s under a third of a carat, over a quarter. I think it’s perfect for me (skinny fingers) and I love it because it is the ring we were engaged with, not because it was expensive or flashy. Before my grandfather died he gifted me and FI a big chunk of money for the wedding- and I actually thought about upgrading to a beautiful halo ring, but when it came down to it I just couldn’t. This is MY ring, and no other ring will do!

Well, I know all the specs on mine. Only because I researched diamonds for about 9 months lolI wanted to be an informed consumer instead of having FI walk in and say, uh I think she wants round. FI likes to have all the info available before he decides to make a big purchase and seeing as how he was too busy working I took it upon myself to get educated. I wanted to make sure that he was going to be buying a quality stone for the best price possible.

I’m curious, what are weddingbee standards?
I know what mine is, but only because we had it appraised so we could insure it. It’s not the size that matters to me, it matters that my DH got it for me.

I know mine because I picked it out. I can’t say that I don’t care, but I can tell you why I do care :). It’s a third of a carat, which is the same size as the diamond my dad proposed to my mom with. I think it’s super cute that they’re the same size.
stellablue5997: It seems like many bees have one carat rings and over, but it may just be that those are the bees who choose to share.
Also, weddingbee ate my post last time, so I’m putting text down here 🙂

I don’t know mine either. FI and I shopped together, but he bought (and insured) it himself. I have no idea what he paid for it either, and I prefer it that way! I’d get nervous if I knew it was thousands of dollars (which I’m sure it was, but I don’t want to know!) It’s gorgeous and I love it, so that’s all I care about! It’s actually a bit bigger than what I was looking at, but FI is always sure to remind me that the ring isn’t all about me! He wanted to be proud of what he chose when I show it off 🙂
