@MrsCreeToBe: Well you got exactly what you wanted so this should be a time to celebrate.
Your Fi listened to you and you guys have a great relationship and are getting married. Your friend is petty and gets her jollies by making others feel bad that’s not much of a friend.
Why did you pine over the your friend’s ring, is it just because when she whipped it out no one said anything bad about it? I love my ring but sometimes I see 2 carat diamonds and I think damn!! That’s a big ring. Part of me thinks I’ve love to be able to own a diamond that big but I can’t. (Altough I’d wear it in a pendant!)
I love my ring and picked it out its over a carat and I still get jealous sometimes that people have enough money to afford a 2ct diamond. I think man what I would do with that kind of money.
But there’s another flip side to that. Just because they have that ring doesn’t mean they can actually afford it. Just because they have that ring it doesn’t mean that their Fiance loves them more. It doesn’t mean that ring is actually a diamond or isn’t very included. And even if they can afford it, it is a nice diamond, and their Fiance does love them does it really matter??
Identify why you feel jealous and insecure and I bet it has nothing to do with the size of your diamond and more probably to do with the way your friend treated you. Get a blingy band because you want to not because it will get them off your back (because honestly a blingy band will probably not stop the harsh comments). Even if you get a plain band, march into that room with your “friend” as if you have a 3ct rock on your hand and own it. You are happy and she was being petty and it looks like it may have worked because now you are doubting yourself.
And if for some reason you decide you want a bigger diamond down the road because you want it and not because it will help you fit in then go ahead and get one. Fitting in is over-rated. And if you lived in another part of the country where the diamond size is smaller you probably would fit in just fine and they would look odd and be ridiculed.
