    No.. sorry, by that reasoning no one should strive for what they want, whether it be a college eduacation, or a car, or a diamond, because there is always some one out there with less??

    I so agree with you and frankly I always feel a little sad and embarrassed for people who make the size of their diamond some major priority in their life. It’s SO not important.

    I disagree with you. Is there a better way to show that you respect the love and commitment of the proposal than saying yes when you hate the ring?  An ering is just a piece of jewelry. Some people have an emotional attachment to it and some don’t, but I can’t see how that says anything about their love for their Fiance.

    @Keylime Pie:  Right, in that case it has nothing to do with what other people may or may not have.  Some people just like large stones and flashy jewlery.  I think that’s fine and up to each persons taste.   I dont why this has to be so negative.  If someone wanted a bigger ring and it was afforadable, and say the guy went and spent more on a home theather system, and was complaining, I’d understand.  If someone wanted a bigger ring, but her guy was struggling and could barely afford food, then that’s rediculous.

    I completely agree.  First world problems: my diamond isn’t big enough, boo!!

    It annoys me to see that people complain over a materialistic thing, like a ring.  It feels like everyone is trying to keep up with the Joneses’…come on…what matters most is that you are happy, healthy and that your boyfriend/fiance/husband loves you…not the size of the diamond he can afford to buy.

    I totally agree with you! I think it is inconsiderate for girls to hate or dislike their ring. Who knows how many hours of consideration he put into picking it out?! It’s about the love and committment you two share. My mom got a tiny engagement ring and after 25 years my dad could finally afford to buy her a BEAUTIFUL new ring. They renewed their vows with it and my dad even got an awesome new blinged out band! It doesn’t matter people. You can always “upgrade” for a significant anniversary or something. I am just happy to have a dang engagement ring, but I happen to LOVE mine! :o)

    I agree! Also, some peoples FI’s probley took months to pick out the perfect ring, and were crazy excited..then find out the girl hates it? Ouch! A diamond isnt just about he carat weight. My fi told me he could have gotten me a big one, but then would have had to go to a lower colour and clarity. I love mine! It might not be the biggest, but holy man does it sparkle!!!

    I personally dislike threads where people are complaining about their rings because they’re not big enough or expensive enough. I think that if their OH’s knew, they would be so hurt, and personally, I think that if you love someone, you should love the ring for what it symbolises, and not see it as some kind of status ie ‘I have a bigger ring therefore my partner loves me more’.

    The only time I understand when people get upset would be if their OH had put absolutely no thought into the ring, and not listened to what their partner wanted at all.

    What I really don’t understand is people ‘upgrading’ their rings. My ering will always be my ering. I’m sure that in future, I will have jewellery that is much more expensive; but I would NEVER upgrade my ering. I absolutely adore it, it is perfect for me, and I honestly don’t care how much it cost. It will always be special to me, and I’d be devastated if I lost it.

    @Keylime Pie:  You’re welcome!  Nope, not negative or ridiculous!  

    I think more women should be happy and appreciative of what was given to them.
