her rings always looked like that. I had barbies in the 80’s and her diamond was bigger than her finger– so were her earrings.  I think that because they are plastic and removable, they can’t make them much smaller. 

but don’t get me started on that dress. she’s got a pretty bad taste in wedding dresses!

Barbie has always had big over the top accessories! I think it’s just for fun.

It probably looks that big, because her body is so oddly proportioned! Haha.

I’m gonna 2nd the “it’s plastic so in order to make it it can’t be super tiny.” Honestly, I think it’s harmless. Unless you’re playing with and taking lessons from barbie through your teens and having that image reinforced from other sources I’m sure little girls will grow up to be just fine. 🙂

I actually remember a few of my Barbies having some ginormous bling. Funny that I still remember that.

Barbie always has and always will enforce a sexist view of women (granted sometimes they do some things to add some LESS sexist “stories” to Barbie). Just my opinion

@CarolinaCola:  I agree with you! maybe barbie’s ring on it’s own isn’t so bad, but no doubt our culture is obsessed with size and having huge rings. Not EVERYONE feels that way, I know, but  alot of people do. 

The real life version! ha!

Her enormous out of proportion ring goes with her enormous out of proportion tatas, itty bitty waist and feet.

@CarolinaCola:  That one’s  been around for awhile .. One of my nieces had it, and when you pinch the ring it flashed.  Yeah she’s 17 now and thinks it depends on how much money you both make … that it’s a ring not proof of his love.  She’s looking forward to the ROCK she gets to rock on her 25th anniversary cause that one’s the important one. (yeah she r ules)

Is that “broken-wristed bridal Barbie”?  Since when did they make her wrist adjustable and weird looking like that!?

I remember those rings, there’s a hole in between 2 of her fingers and you jam this ring-on-a-spike in between.  That girl has everything!  😛
