    @xoxocheri:  My original e-ring center diamond was 3/4 ct, back in 2003.  Now I have a 1 ct center diamond in a halo (I lost the original and decided to upgrade a bit when we replaced it).  If it makes a difference we were both 22 when I got the original; now we’re 32 and had a bit more money to put into an upgrade.  

    I don’t know that it’s necessarily a generational thing, more of a financial decision, at least it was for us.  I didn’t want him going into debt 10 years ago for that first ring, and similarly I didn’t want to spend a heck of a lot more (in my mind, waste what could be savings!) now that we’re 32 and have a house to take care of, babies to think about, etc, etc.  Not that there’s something wrong with prioritizing differently, it’s just that’s how it worked out for us.  

    Now I’m a happy camper and promised DH I will not lose this one!     😉

    @xoxocheri:  I don’t have my e-ring yet, but it won’t be a diamond. However, it will be a 1.31 carat peachy-champagne sapphire, but it faces up to look like a 1.2 carat diamond.

    Exacly half a carat… DH wanted to get me a .75 but ended up getting a higher quality smaller diamond last minute.
