I think that most of the people around here agree with you. ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree completely. What matters is what the ring means to you and your FI.

Although I do LOVE seeing “ring porn” on the boards no matter the size (or type!) of the stone.

The size of the stone doesn’t say anything about how strong your relationship is, big or small, diamond, gemstone, or plain band.

I love looking at all rings, no matter the size, shape, color, stone, band, etc.  I love jewelry, and I don’t have a lot, so I live vicariously through others ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our rings are a symbol, nothing more.  Every single time I look at my engagement ring, and now wedding wedding, I don’t notice the size, but I remember the look in my husband’s eyes when he asked me to be his wife, and again when he promised to love me for the rest of his life.  What more could I want than that?

however, this discussion has raged on many times over, and if we did a search, we’d probably find half a dozen other posts saying just the same thing. so this might just be fueling the flames once again.

@cyndistar3:

very well said!  i wish everyone agreed with this!  i HATE when people put so much empahisis on size of the diamond.  honestly, i don’t even HAVE an engagment ring, just a wedding band.  but if i did have one, i’d rather have a small one of a good quality than a large one with bad quality.  all the engament rings though, mean the SAME thing.  it’s the symbolism that counts, not the size!

I fantasize about having a huge rock one day (by NYC standards), but at the same time I realize that it just doesn’t fit who we are. I feel lucky every day for having my DH and I see the ring as a symbol of our love, not a material posession.

Cyndistar3, I think it’s great that you have brought this up. It’s interesting to me that in the 1950s, a .25 carat diamond was considered to be the norm. Now many women walk around feeling dejected and depressed if they receive anything less than a half carat bauble.

I personally feel bad for guys in society today who feel the pressure to shell over their whole savings account for a huge rock just to make their fiancees happy. 

That said, I don’t think there’s anything wrong at all with having a large ring, for those of you that do have one. What irks me is the disappointment so many women have over their rings; it’s a symbol of your love, not status. There’s no reason there should be so many posts centered around hatred, disappointment, or insecurity over such a trivial matter.

He loves you, you love him, that’s it.

Okay, I’m jumping off the soap box now! ๐Ÿ˜›
