Well, I personally am all about the diamond in mine but I LOVE seeing other rings that don’t have the traditional diamond for a center stone. I think they’re unique and gorgeous! I’m just really really picky about things matching, so I know I would get tired of a colored stone eventually. 😉

@Regina Phalange:  Everyone has an opinion. It’s annoying.

Like if you get a diamond it’s either too big or too small or too gaudy or the wrong shape yadda yadda.

People need to mind their own business.

Unfortunately moms can be like that….it’s so annoying.  Just remember, in her mind, she thinks that she’s trying to do what’s best for you, even though she sounds totally nuts to you right now.  My sister once told me that my mom is the only person in the entire world who thinks more about what’s best for me than I do myself.  It sucks that she’s being a drag about your choice of ring (which is TOTALLY your call by the way), but try to remember it’s coming from a good place.  

It’s actually kind of funny because my mom thinks that my 2 carat diamond ring is ridiculous and she doesn’t understand why anyone would want “flashy” jewelry.  I guess none of us can win!

How sweet. Made me want to cry and call my mom. I didn’t because she’d annoy the crap out of me, talking about what she thinks is best for me! LOL

HA, affordability is one of the BEST reasons to not buy a diamond! Why would your mom frown upon that?

@Regina Phalange:  Your moms a jewler and you dont like diamonds… I love that!!

I think non diamonds will become more common as time goes on as people begin to realise why diamonds are symbolic of marrige:) (Marketing!!)

i love the look of engagement rings in general. No matter which stone you go with it has to be something that YOU love.

The game of rings cannot be won.

If you get a diamond, you eat babies.

If you get a moissanite, you’re a cheap faker.

If you get a small diamond, he doesn’t love you.

If you get a big diamond, you’re materialistic.

If you get a colored gemstone, you’re just doing it wrong because only a clear stone could possible symbolize true love.

That’s annoying, but you just have to ignore it and not let it influence your decision. She’ll forget all about it (your ring) after the wedding, but you have to wear it forever.
