ok, I looooove ‘diamond pervert’…That’s just how I feel at times. I’ve been married for 14 yrs! Why am I on WB?!! *box o’ shame*

I bounce between reading/ogling here and @ other jewelry/diamond boards. TBF, I’ve been obsessed w/jewelry(esp. rings and bracelets) since childhood. I can’t say I’ve felt envy but there’s a vicarious thrill and also that ‘#goals’ feeling when I see something really cool.

Yes, there’s a cure. Stop looking at diamonds and start looking at wedding dresses. Wait until she gets a 2017 Lazaro gown that ticks every box. Torture youirself over that instead. It’s not a solution that will make you happy though! 😉

mishybear :  you’re totally right one the whole “can’t stop once you start” thing! My original ering was just about .15 ct (heirloom stone, new setting) and I loved it! But my mom gave my now husband her diamond from her original ring since she now wears an heirloom from my dads great grandmother. It’s .61 ct! I hate to admit I got bit by the envy bug, but alas I had been. I didn’t want to replace my ring since it had such a sentimental meaning from my mother but I wanted BIGGER! So I got a 6.5 mm moissy and I wore it as a “stand in” about every other day lol. Then I started looking more more more at moissy and I still wanted bigger hahah. Now I have a 2 ct grey moissanite ring in the rotation haha. 

I actually gave the .15ct diamond to my now brother in law when he told me he wanted to propose to my sister (she has ridiculously small hands and it actually looks big on her!) and in glad I got to keep the heirloom going in he family. Now I want more rings… But I’m going to hold off… Maybe a couple months haha.

mellybelly :  you may not have a diamond the size of an ice skating rink on your finger but you definitely have a great writing style and an awesome sense of humor!!! Much more worthy of a side glance!!! 

If you really want a ring you love then start saving for it. Put aside all the money you would normally spend on little treats for yourself throughout the week. I did that for a holiday I wanted years ago. I stopped getting my nails done at a salon, stopped sneaking a few packets of chips and chocolate in my trolley, made my lunch everyday, got my hair cut less often, stopped buying drinks at clubs when out etc. It worked and I saved for the best holiday ever and I also lost some weight from abandoning my chocolate, chip and take out lunch habit!!!

I also second looking at loose stones or dated estate pieces where you can take the diamond out and sell the gold setting for its weight in gold. My friend did that and got a just under  3/4 carat diamond for 600 bucks with reasonable specs.
