@FannyFanners:  loveee it!!!!!! i like e-rings that are 2cts and under. and I also love cushion cut. ( i have one too minus the halo)

For me anything over 2cts is too gaudy (for me) I am a less is more person

I agree! My engagement is 0.75 tcw with three side stones and I absolutely love it! It’s of really good quality and my fiance was so proud that he picked a super sparkly ring that was a style I would love. I’m not really over-the-top anyway, so our engagement and my ring is just our style, but it’s funny, a coworker of mine who has a huge ring couldn’t stop gushing about how beautiful my WAY smaller ring was!

@FannyFanners:  Me too!!! When FI started talking about marriage and he asked what kind of ring I wanted, I said as long as its a cusion cut, I don’t care what size it it. 
My center stone is 1.25 and i have graduating pave diamonds-idk the tcw. I went to Tiffanys just for fun with my girlfriend and tried on a .85 and .95ct e-ring and I thought it was a 1ct! So when I told FI that he doesn’t need to get a 1ct–he just rolled his eyes and said, let me do the shopping. You just sit there looking pretty, you will get your ring and proposal when you least expect it. LoL

The other thing is, some women prefer a bigger diamond and not care about the color, clarity, cut, etc. I may have a “small” stone, or a “standard” size stone, but I will tell you this, I think its absoltely perfect for me. I love the size, and its pretty much a flawless diamond!

@mypinkshoes:  For me its gaudy. I don’t like the way they look on me. 

I have a few friends and know of a few people that have rings that are over 2 and they are pretty, but its not ME. thats all im saying.

If I say something is gaudy, or if anyone says that, I/we are not calling it ugly. 🙂

I didn’t mean to offend.

Same with halos, I think they are pretty, but its not me…its not my personality

@FannyFanners:  do we know the same person lol?! I know a girl who did that–i think it was like a 4 ct ring but you look at it and you can seeee all the flaws. Its one thing for a stone to have flaws, but its another thing when those flaws can be seen with the naked eye

@Daizy914:  no problem.   i just read “gaudy” and i was like Frown.   i know that not all sizes and styles are for everyone.  i am not offended.
