  • poll: Would you want this many carats?

    No thanks, it would turn my skin yellow

    You're kidding right? The bigger the better

    It’s gorgeous but WAY too much for me. It’s really pretty and sparkly but impractical for everyday wear.

    @lanany10:  Agreed.  I really, really don’t like it as a halo.

    I agree with people who would assume it’s fake.  It’s just… unsettlingly large.  Even things that are otherwise gorgeous and great quality – like when someone has healthy, awesome hair that goes down past their butt.  It’s like my first reaction is always semi-shock that something is that out of proportion with my expectations.

    Plus, I am a giant klutz and would totally accidentally bash someone in the face if I had a ring that big.  Probably myself.

    I think it looks fine.  honestly, with all the hype I thought it would look bigger on her hand.  It’s a bit large for my taste but I won’t fault her.

    @Moose1209: You make a good point.

    Big or small, gold or platinum, diamond or not, an engagement ring is an engagement ring. If she loves it and he picked it for her out of love and as a symbol of starting their lives together than it’s perfect. 🙂

    Do I personally think it is too much? Yes. Does that make it a bad engagement ring? Nope!

    I hate to say the “G” word, but it’s a little too gaudy to me and would even look overwhelming on my hand and I have big fingers.  And I agree with a PP the halo setting takes it way OTT, In My Humble Opinion.

    Wow. Personally, I’m of the opinion that too much of a good thing is a bad thing.

    @ItalianLady: Yeah that would be my main issue. There was a post here once about a guy who got a huge inheritance and spent like 1/3 of it on an e-ring! I would NOT marry that man. That inheritance will be gone by the time the wedding is over if that is the way he spends it.

    holy crap that’s a huge ring!  i wouldn’t think you could actually wear it anywhere, though.  so what would be the point?  also, it would really get in the way of activities.  if she likes it, good for her, but def. not for me…

    I think it’s gorgeous, but I would worry that people would assume it’s fake as well….or try to mug me and steal it.  That being said, I still think it’d be fun to at least try it on

    @Moose1209: Kate Middleton’s ring is NOWHERE near that size! Her’s is tastefully large, not “hey look, I have a flying saucer on my hand” big.

    @crayfish:  Ummm… actually the ring the OP posted is 7.7 carats and Kate’s is 18.  Given that it’s a sapphire your aren’t exactly comparing apples to apples but since it’s more than twice the carat weight I think we are safe to say Kate’s is bigger.
