How do you know they’re gossiping? Are they saying it’s small or large? Because 1 carat is a pretty average size, I can’t imagine most people thinking that’s crazy huge or crazy small enough to talk about it.

I just wouldn’t worry about it. Talking about a ring can only be interesting for so long, they’ll move onto something else.

Petty people like that have their own issues. Don’t let it get to you.

I can tell a lot of people think my stone is fake b/c of the size (although it’s only a little over 1ct – but most of my friends/family have closer to 0.5ct or less). Several people have asked to see it and they just look at it and say nothing, not even “oh that’s nice”.  One day my mom asked me if it was real b/c my aunt had said something about the size, and my brother’s first reaction to it was “oh I see some inclusions” (even though it’s a VVS1 and was appraised as IF by an ind app).  This to me just boils down to jealousy.  Yes it was probably VERY expensive relative to what someone else would spend on a ring, but for us it was affordable and Fiance wanted to spend what he did on it.  If people are talking sh*t about your ring, they likely have nothing better to do (poor them!).  Also, congrats on your engagement and that Tacori setting is STUNNING!

@bobsoon2bewife2013: I will have a ring in the 1 carat range and I think it is too small. It sounds silly for people to be jealous of something so practical. I envy Khloe Kardashian’s ring but its like 10 carats;0) Ignore the silly remarks, your ring is nice but nothing to be catty about.

It sounds like jealousy, I just don’t understand any other reason why anyone would make ANY negative comment about an engagement ring. I’ve seen some rings that were REALLY far far FAR away from my taste, but I still look at them and think “Oh how sweet, two people fell in love and are getting married”. You know?

And I agree 1 carat is a totally average and normal size. Depending on where you live it could be considered large, but I think in most areas it is average or small. Hey I have a 2 carat diamond and a size 3 finger and I had a friend say mine was small 🙂 I just ignore the comments honestly because the ring is a thing, yes, but it represents something more important which is the love Darling Husband and I have for each other. There’s almost nothing anyone could say that would make me feel bad about it. And if people want to give it a deer in headlights stare, that’s their problem because they were obviously raised in a barn.

Your ring sounds beautiful! I’m with the others in that it sounds like jealously. Just try to let their comments roll off of your back and enjoy your gorgeous ring!

are these people your friends? I don’t think I could be friends with such petty people.

I’m not at all religious, but there is one creed I do believe in (in certain situations, that is): turn the other cheek.

Wow, I could have written this post myself. I too have the 2620 with pave band, and a 0.96 (or something in that ballpark) centre stone on a 4.75 size finger and have generally received great compliments but I’ve also received super rude ones too. Once of which was a girl asking ME to see it (I didn’t offer it up myself even) and after seeing it, she grabbed her friends arm and whispered in her ear and then said NOTHING to me?! I was so in shock that it happened. I’ve never asked to see someone’s ring and not commented on it, whether I liked it or not. I’ve also had some of my closest friends not even ask to see it after they notice it from accross a table which I thought was also odd, even if I could see one of my closest friends ring accross a table I would DEFINITELY ask to see it closer and gush over it/be excited with them. I truly feel hurt that I put forth so much effort being excited for my friends when they got engaged and really have received nothing in return. I feel like I can’t even talk about my wedding around them.

Anyways that got a little off topic, but I totally hear ya sister. Must be something about this design!

Let’s enjoy them together and see a picture of yours!!

I have a 1.2 carat diamond with an very intricate cathedral setting. It’s extremely hard to miss it on my small finger. I haven’t heard anyone talk behind my back about it. I think it’s the perfect size, but I have nothing to compare it to. People have joked with me about how big it is, but for the most part they think it’s beautiful and they love it… and are trying to figure out how my Fiance paid for it. Baha, it’s called saving money 🙂

nobody has ever expressed any jealousy, distaste, or anything bad about my ring. I’ve only gotten compliments on it. I’m sorry this happens to you ladies!
