jubiebee:  FRICKIN GORGEOUS!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I think that may be some words got misunderstood on this thread—especially when the written word can come across SO much worse at times than if we all were sitting around talking over coffee (or beer…or MARGARITAS :D) No one is putting anyone else down, though it may sure sound that way…we’re talking diamonds for cripes sake–not curing cancer–this aught to all be FUN! ๐Ÿ˜€ I do have to share one thing that happened at work this week…I didn’t make a big deal over my new ring–but as females do, many of my coworkers noticed without my saying a word, LOL! It felt good hearing the ooohs and aaaahs (I fully admit it LOL!) and I even fessed up to it having imperfections in it, and that is why we got a screaming deal on it….and 99% of the reaction to that was CRICKETS—doe-in-the-headlights looks from the ladies at work, like “Huh? what do you mean? it SPARKLES, doesn’t it?!?” I was even admonished for not being grateful for what I have, lol–and trust me–I AM!–but in real life, no one cared about the four C’s….except for one gal…younger, newly married, still fresh from her wedding bouquet. I have NO doubt she did NOT mean to come across as snarky…but her two cents was ‘Why would I waste my money on that when I could (and should) have bought something smaller with better quality’—she honestly was confused, NOT being hateful, but still….OUCH.

I smiled and explained that I am thrilled with my ring–and I asked her—could she actually see any of the “problems” with it…? She took my hand (nicely) and honestly said that no she couldn’t, but if she were to wear it, she would just know, and that would bother her. NO PROBLEMO—just like men (or women)–there is something for everyone, right? ๐Ÿ˜€ —& I said after knowing my man 21 years being married for 14–my tastes about SO much have changed, and while it may seem my sense of quality went down, I am just happy to get a sparkly that is nice, affordable and looks nice on my size 8 trucker hands HAHA! ๐Ÿ˜€ She walked away, still insistent that I didn’t get where she was coming from (but I do) and I feel she doesn’t see my point either–but that is A-OK. She likes her wedding set, I am thrilled with mine, and no one in the end is putting anyone else down, right?–but on these boards, it sure can feel that way at times…even when it’s not the intent at all…

Just like people (and animals) no two are alike–& that’s what makes them special, no? I just saw an ad on Ebay for a 2 carat princess pre-owned beautiful and VERY sparkly I2 from Zales (nothing against Zales)–and the seller wants 7k! MY GAWD–I would warn anyone away from that–not because it’s an I2 but because 7k is STEEP for that and I admit it! But, at the same time, if a bride comes along and that is her hearts desire (sigh), I won’t understand paying that but would be her cheerleader just the same LOL.

When I look at my ring, all I see is myself being seduced by sparkle rainbows–if what’s on paper makes you happy==GO ON GIRL! If it doesn’t matter==GO ON GIRL! 

 

BIGHUGS TO ALL!!! <3

RayKay:  I am sorry…I thoughth you had an oec. It is the antique cluster that is not really a cluster? A center stone with stones around it? Its beautiful.

Mine is an I2. 1/2 carat princess cut center. 1 and 3/4 TCW. I absolutely love it and wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Mine is an I2/I3. This is my second e ring, my first was supposedly an I2 but visually the inclusions were much much more obvious.i don’t find them that obvious in this ring. I know where to look but other people wouldn’t! This is my current set

My ring is I1 and the inclusions caught my eye at first. Actually when I first noticed them I thought I had cracked my stone or something. Now I dont even notice them and have to point them out to anyone else

Wow! I am so excited to have found a place where people might actually appreciate the beauty of my diamond. My fiance and I had picked out the diamond together, and we had intentionally selected a diamond that was heavily included. I wanted something that was both unique and timeless. I wanted a diamond that was perfectly imperfect. However, upon receiving my ring, I got some mixed responses from relatives that were “jewelry snobby”.I  began to feel super insecure. It wasn’t until one day, when my ring caught the light just right, did I get reminded of why I chose my ring and why it represents us as a couple. Now, I fall in love with it every day I put it on. imageFullSizeRender

noodlebox :  yes! I love your ring!!!! I’ve seen some diamonds like this referred to as “galaxy” diamonds. Can you post more pics? As long as you and your fiancé are happy with your choice that’s all that matters.

 My engagement ring is I1 my husband didn’t know much about diamonds and wanted to get the biggest for his budget at the time it has an inclusion but still very white and sparkley when the light catches it. Like pp said its inclusion actually makes it unique I’d always know that diamond is mine
