I have an engagement ring with a small stone and I’m perfectly happy with it. I can’t think of wearing a ring with a big stone, I would feel like I’m showing off or something.. I wouldn’t be comfortable around wearing it. But it’s not necessarily the norm here, I’m sure there are girls who wear flashier rings than mine!

on the westcoast it seems like norm is 1 carat.

I have a 1 carat wedding band and a 1.5 carat solitaire engagement ring. It doesn’t seem like too much compared to other ladies i see…

However, when i go to some poorer parts of the city, i do turn my rings upside down so the diamonds are not facing out as i sometimes feel self conscious.

My mom’s from El Salvador, and I can’t say I remember seeing any relatives with big erings, or erings at all.  Crime’s enough of an issue there that having a big ring is an invitation to get mugged or kidnapped.  As for other jewelry, it depends on the age.  The older generation seems to like yellow gold jewelery in antique or classic styles, while the younger generations like trendy fashion jewelry.  Not too many people there wear stuff that’s valuable.  The general appeal is towards flashier pieces, but people are limited by safety.
