Does anyone else experience ring envy whenever they see someone elses engagement ring? Don’t get me wrong I love my ring a lot but then I see other peoples and I’m like man I wish mine was that big and sparkly. Does anyone else ever experience this or is it just me?

Idk if “envy” is the word but I definitly see some rings I adore on Wb! I would never trade mine for any other ring in the world though.
But sometimes I would love a bigger center stone but the exact same setting I have. I have a 1 ct, so it’s not small by any means. WB can alter reality though, sometimes my 1 ct feels little when I see the 2 ct + rocks!

There are some other Bees’ rings I’d love to borrow for a day! But in the end, I love mine.
I do get size envy; holy cow! Some of these ladies’ rings are MASSIVE! I don’t know if I’d be happy with a huge rock for long, though.

@mepayne: Size envy, that’s a good way to put it! Yes I get that too.

I’ve felt it before. One of my friends got engaged with a 1.5ct tacori ring, and I was instantly jealous. I’ve never wanted anything orante, however I think it was the size that made me envious! However, when I look at my ring, I know I could never ever upgrade or change it as it’s what my Fiance wanted me to have and I’m too emotionally attached to it. I don’t think I could love another ring (even if it were bigger) more than I love mine, just because of the story behind it 🙂
I think it’s only human to experience this once in your life!

Sadly, yes I get ring envy. I have a very special ring- 4ct of rubies in a band setting with channel diamonds on each side of rubies. I love my ring so much but I often think about atraditional engagment ring.
When Fiance bought it things were different than when he actually gave it to me. I regret making him buy the ring when we were not ready to get engaged yet so I often think that if I was more patient I’d have a more traditional ring that I want now. That being said after we are married for a whole I am going to be really happy toshave this ring to wear instead of a big engagment ring.
To top it off, One of my bridesmaids got engaged 3 months after me and has one of the most amazing rings I have ever seen. I gave my Fiance grief for a few days with my envy.

I look at rings constantly… but I remember how I picked mine out and it was perfect for me. Sure would I have expected a larger center stone if my husband could afford it, yes, but I feel you get what he can afford.

Nope – I picked my ring and I love it! We wanted one I’d never have to upgrade!

Yes I think that size envy is more like it. I wish my diamonds were bigger.

@Future_Mrs_Naugle: What size are they and what size would you like? If you don’t mind me asking.

Nope. My Fiance and I designed my rings together. I had some very specific things in my head. After 6 months the first designer gave up said it was impossible. The second one made it happen. I love that we designed it, I love that its not traditional and that it pushed boundaries that some jewelers didn’t think could be done. I just am scared that if i post photos anywhere there will be copy-cats. But its perfectly symmetrical and the rings lock in together perfectly. I looove mine. <3

More than anything, I guess, I get envious of girls who a- got proposed to after a year or two while I had to wait almost 5, and b- guys who drop a pretty penny on their girl without hesitation. Both Fiance and I are frugal, and I probably wouldn’t really like something really flashy and expensive, but I get a tad jealous, nonetheless…

Size envy! I love it! Very accurate term to describe how I feel sometimes as well! 🙂

I have shape envy! Especially if I see a nice pear, oval or cushion diamond.. or 3-stone emeralds.. I die…!
