@MrsCassie:  “This is why I don’t get offended when someone asks “How large is that?” or “Is that real?”, because just like you, most people aren’t being malicious about it, it’s just curiosity! Don’t let yourself feel bad about it, “oops” moments happen to all of us.

+1.

@Glasgowbound:  Long before I was on this site, I saw a ring that had a 4 ct center stone. My mouth literally dropped when I saw her hand and I HAD to ask her about it. She was kinda snooty when I asked but it was in a way that was like “Oh, yeah, this old thing?” so now that I look back on it it seemed okay.

I agree though, you meant it to be flattering. I would be flattered if someone asked me about my ring if I had a huge stone in my ring too. You’d be proud to show it off! (Not that I’m not proud of mine!!) If it wasn’t for this website, I wouldn’t even know that it was bad form to ask that. :/

It’s completely normal. I have my ring asked all the time and I always give them the specs. I also asked about people’s ct weights too,small or big. So it’s no biggie.

i have a larger than normal stone.  no one has asked me the size of the diamond.  but i do hear: “wow, he did good.”  or “he must love you.”

i just smile and say thank you.  no one needs to know the history behind the ring or where it came from.

the diamond is my grandmothers.  i wouldn’t have anywhere near this big a diamond if it weren’t for her.

@FutureMrsHallam:  LOL! Yeah, I love him, but he can really put his foot in it sometimes. This is not the first “whomp whomp” situation he’s caused. From what he described to me, it wasn’t even that low on the color scale (he pointed to a clock face that is just barely yellow, maybe a K?), he just had noooo idea what a fancy yellow actually looked like. Probably not the best way to find out, though.

@Glasgowbound:  Don’t feel bad, it’s not like you asked her if she was pregnant but she was only overweight! LOL I don’t think what you said is so bad really.

Do  you think it’s a real diamond though? a 3 ct high quality diamond is about $105,000. So often with larger rings, they’re just simulantss.  So it may be a much more affordable ring than you think?
