@jen24au: I work with my fiance in the jewelry business and we come across beautiful stunning estate jewelry engagement rings, both designer and just gorgeous. We also attend jewelry shows with all the trappings on display.

I found my ring at our store, but it takes everything that I have not to eat my hand off in lust for the pieces that come in.  Recently we got a 3 ct. Tacori ring and it was FLAWLESS and SO sparkly. I couldn’t even look at it.

You are not alone, woman!

My aunt has what I believe to be at least an 12 carat (centerstone alone) yellow diamond engagement ring with probably 100 white sidestones, and everytime I see that thing I’m like….whoa. LOL. It looks like one of those giant novelty cocktail rings but it’s real! I’m not exactly jealous of it (in my neighborhood my finger would get cut off for it) but I would love to try it on, hehe.

Our aunts must be friends. My aunt has a similar size pear stone with huge flanking baguettes. Every time I see it, I just want to slide that baby on my finger and sneak out the patio door. 😀

@MrsDulce: Omg it was so gorgeous.  The good news is it went fast. Some guy paid cash! I was happy to see it go. 

Right now there is a much more modest Tiffany pear shaped ring here.  It is almost perfect. A girl was really admiring it and said she wanted it and I found myself getting quite possessive over it! 

I think I have a problem with ring jealousy! lol.

I think that it is only natural. I got married once when I was real young and I never ever thought I would have a nice ring set. The one my man has gotten me is gorgeous. It’s a 5/8 solitaire with a GORGEOUS band – it fits the ring and me perfect. It’s over 1 carats worth which is more than I thought I would have. I am from Michigan and it is not a wealthy state by any means. My ring is gorgeous, and I adore it, it’s nicer than anything I ever thought I would have. But after you have it for awhile…at least for me…I see everyone else’s rings and I think…maybe I wanted a whole carat. I work in the oil industry and pretty much everyone who works in my company makes 70k+, so even though me and my fiancé are doing well, I feel like when compared to everyone else, it’s not quite well enough. I think you have to learn to not compare – and in all honesty – knowing there is well over $2k in diamonds on my finger is enough to make me go….whooooaa….lol.

It’s totally natural!  I think not only for the woman but for the man also.  No, I don’t have the biggest ring in the world, but I love it!  The cut & clarity are just beautiful & the fact that my Fiance loves me enough to pass on his grandmothers ring says so much more!  But he sometimes feels the same way (ring envy, that is)  We’ll see someone with a bigger ring & he’ll say something like ‘I wish I could have gotten that size for you’.  but what he doesn’t realize is what he gave me is perfect!

I like other rings but still love mine the most on me.

Anybody who has NOT experienced ring envy should go look at Bellenga’s *swoon* Tongue out  (If you read this, post a pic of that thing!!!)

I LOVE my ring, but sometimes I see other people with a different style (like a halo) and think should I have hinted at that instead?

Sure thats normal, I adore my ring, it’s everything I had dreamed of and much bigger than I thought I would ever own. However, I love anything sparkly and enjoy seeing other styles and cuts. I always complement people jewellery because I would feel a little awkward if they saw me gawking!

Not me.  I seriously love mine.  I wouldn’t want it any bigger or smaller.  I hate my wedding band though!  (DH knows and doesn’t mind/ he doesn’t like it either 🙂

I do love other people’s design’s though and styles.  I love crayfish‘s.  If I remember right- she has an uncut/ natural diamond = LOVE.
