@lezlers:I know! I was extremely offended and hurt. Even if she thought that, why tell me? Well, she can wait around forever for her boyfriend to acquire a ring “worthy” of her, I guess. Good luck with that buddy.

I suggest posting on pricescope.com

It is a form exclusively for diamond/jewelry lovers.

No one will judge you.

I had the opposite thing happen to me.  My BFF got engaged and when I saw her ring, it was so perfect.  And I wanted a do-over.  Her centerstone is smaller than mine, and that’s what I like about it.  She has a totally different setting and everything.  Even though I still admire it, I love my ring.  It’s the ring he proposed with, the ring we got our e-pics taken with, and the ring we had blessed at our wedding.  I adore it now, and wouldn’t trade it for anything!  (But it took me over a year to get here…)  I don’t think you’re silly for comparing, but I think it’s important to think about why YOUR ring IS so great.  Focus on that instead, and in time you’ll stop thinking other rings are somehow better (in any way, including size, color, clarity, etc).

Some people have bigger rings, some have smaller. Some big rings look ugly ugly ugly, some small are very pretty and sofisticated.

Also, the quality of the ring is way more important than the carat. A colouless, flawless 0.5 carat centre stone cost more than an inferior 1.2 carat big one. And over time the better quality one will always shine more….

Either way, don’t worry!

o0ok after all the posts that are telling you that you are crazy, I am going to sing you a different tune!  I think that its normal to want a bigger ring..no matter what size ring you already have you will always see someone else’s that you think “gosh I want a bigger stone”..who cares, you are allowed to feel however you want!  We can all tell you love your ring, so don’t worry about it!  There are always going to be things in life that you wish you had..its only normal:)  Good luck lady!!

haha somedays i have what I guess you would call ring shrinkage some days, but what I really think it is is that my hands look bigger.  You know, were woman sometimes we retain some water! haha so i have those days where i look down and i’m like…hmm thought it was bigger, but then the next day i think the total opposite! I love my ring though, it just means so much to me because i know all the thought and effort my fiance put into it. And I also agree with miss bella’s post.  Its normal.

If you want a larger stone, you don’t have to get a diamond. You can have a huge stone for a fraction of the cost. You can totally have the ring of your dreams! Yes, I think a lot of women want a big stone, but then also insist on a diamond. In that case, I really have no sympathy at all, lol.

PLUS, this is your engagement ring! It’s value is not measured by it’s cost, but by the fact that this was given to you by the person you love most in the world the day he bent down on one knee and asked you to be his wife! You shouldn’t forget that.

Also, I looked at your ring… you’re having “ring shrinkage”, REALLY? I’m sorry, but you’re being a bit of a brat. You have at least two other posts expressing a lack of confidence in your e-ring. Your ring is most definitely not small, and you should tell those people who are saying otherwise to shut their materialistic mouths.
