@madelise:  I’m not sure there is any point debating this because you clearly have a bee in your bonnet about it. I also wear larger rings, but I do not wear them 24/7. I tried wearing them 24/7 and it was a problem. I bet none of your friends wear rings like that 24/7… I bet they wear them and then take them off. But that is not what an e-ring is designed for. An e ring is designed to be worn all the time.

I fail to see why this simple observation has somehow earned your eternal ire, and I also see no desire to refrain from making observations based on personal experience in future.

It’s exactly the same as if someone has posted a picture of high heeled shoes, another person has commented about how wearing heels like that is impractical, and a third person has (for some unknown reason) taken violent objection to this, and insisted that high heels are practical because they wear them all the time. Well, perhaps they do wear heels a lot… but that doesn’t mean that a 6 inch stiletto is more practical than a flat pump, no matter how much you swing it. Nor does it mean that the high heel gods have to somehow be appeased every time someone mentions the risk of sprains.

@Rachel631:  I’m objecting to your comments because you are making a blanket statement that large stones/rings cause calluses. They don’t. They might in *you*. They don’t in every person. You are talking as if no one owns large rings. Yes my friends own large rings. Gabrielle Union is not the first person on earth to have a large engagement ring. Because YOU, or some others, may think it’s uncomfortable or impractical, does not mean every single person on earth can’t wear them. That’s not considered a “simple observation”. That’s what I have been saying over and over again. If anyone has a “bee in her bonnet”, I think it’s the person mentioning bees. I’m not “violently objecting” anything. This is the /rings subforum of WB, where ring afficianados all come together to appreciate beautiful rings. I don’t know why you’re bashing large rings for. 

And you’re right– there is no point continuing debating this. I didn’t understand the original comment to begin with. YOU go on, live your life, and avoid large rings. Other people on earth can do whatever they wish. Just don’t go insulting others’ choices.

Ugh. I give up. What an utterly pointless debate.

@cantonbride:  Many people here (myself included) have never heard of either of them. It doesn’t look fake to me though. Just….not good.

I think it’s too big, but I do like that they went with a simple solitaire for such a big stone.

It’s classic and I love the shape of the cushion. Would like it even more in the 4-5 carat range, but if I were offered the ring, I certainly wouldn’t turn it down 🙂

@This Time Round:  I agree! I think how a relationship starts is important. I am sorry, but BBall players do not have the best reputation as far as keeping it in their pants. I actually saw some really huge rock online, and he overspent, haha! He could have spent between $100,000-$200,000 and donated the rest to me, I mean uh, charity haha!
