Hi everyone so excited to be here. So I was at work the other day and a coworker of mine noticed my engagement ring and proceeded to say “awwww it’s so cute and dainty” I got immediately offended because to me it implied my ring was small. My center stone is 1/2 and total carat weight of 1ct I wear a size 8.5 is a 1/2 carat too small for my finger? Also we bought two wedding bands to go with it can you tell me how it looks? Thanks guys

I think your ring is gorgeous!! I love the guard too. Bee some people can be plain rude and lack tact! I work part time in the summer as a server and one time had a customer pinch my diamond between his fingers and call it tiny like a pea. And my center-stone is one carat. Some people just don’t know how to be polite.

I think your rings are gorgeous! And half carat is a great size – not too small at all!

It’s a beautiful set no matter the size. What counts is that you love and are happy with your ring.

I think it’s beautiful, and I love it with the bands!
I have to say that before I joined the Bee, I didn’t realize how upset people got by saying a ring is ‘dainty.’ I LOVE dainty, and specifically asked for a dainty ring. I don’t think dainty has a negative connotation at all. To me it means having something that’s not chunky, bulky, lots of metal.
So maybe she truly didn’t mean any harm. Either way, love your ring and wear it proudly! It’s beautiful!

I don’t think it looks small at all! Actually looks larger than half carat center to me!

You immediately got offended when someone complimented your ring? I agree with her, it’s both cute and dainty…those words have positive connotations in my mind. It’s a lovely ring that has a playful delicacy that I really enjoy.
Perhaps you’re just feeling insecure? Drooling over the particularly extravagant rings on the bee has occasionally left me feeling…less than stoked…about my ring despite the fact that it’s gorgeous.
Too big/too small is always subjective anyway. 🙂

Girl, you have wall to wall diamonds there. What’s not to love? It’s beautiful Bee.

Some people will go out of their way to make someone else feel bad: too big, too small, a diamond, not a diamond–they’ve all got their reasons to complain about something that is absolutely none of their business. Jealousy, a lot of it. My stone is 28 pts, so to me a 1/2 carat is a double treat. And it looks lovely (which is the only thing people should ever say).
Brides are beautiful, babies are adorable, and weight (loss, gain, distribution) is never, ever mentioned. Think of the person who said, “You look so thin! How did you lose all that weight?” and was told “Stage four cancer.”

Your ring is lovely and your coworker is a bitch.
