@musician32992:  Yes, I know a girl like that.  Amazingly, she’s still single 😉

Future Sister-In-Law is… she has been dating her DBF for nearly 10 years now.

I know a girl who expected the 2 carat minimum. She married a surgeon, got the rock she wanted. The marriage lasted 5 years.

I definitely know people like this, mostly women I’ve worked with. This attitude is not exactly unheard of where I live.

Not in my circle of friends though – we are all pretty down to earth.  The largest diamond out of my friends is about 1.5 carat and she was really surprised when she got it.

Note I don’t think there is anything wrong with liking or wanting a large diamond, but I think the spoiled sense of entitlement is such a turn-off.

I did.

The two I am thinking of ended up getting engaged with rings MUCH different than their “must have.” One ended up with a .5 carat solitaire (not her 1+ carat from Tiffany’s) and the other ended up with a .5 carat halo (not her “minimum 1.5 carat” dream ring.)

I am in no way, shape or form saying something is wrong with .5 carats, btw – I have one!

I don’t think I know anyone like this. Good luck to her finding the ring of her dreams…even if that means she has to settle on man she doesn’t really love. As long as she has 2 carats on her finger, that is all that matters 😉

@RMBsbride:  ha, if I demanded a 2 carat rock I probably would be 100 years old by the time I got engaged.

Yup, my Future Sister-In-Law wanted “at least” a carat but ended up with .5
