    @Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I want teeny tiny diamonds in a band that has contour so it fits nicely against my ring. I’m thinking 1/7th of a carat total… Dainty. But the Fiance wants me to get two so my ring is symmetrical. I haven’t found any that are a decent price yet. I may get just get a diamond band for the wedding, and then the second one as an anniversary present. We haven’t decided.

    @FutureMrsV22: Sounds like that will look beautiful! I think getting the second one for an anniversary present is a great idea! I just exchanged my wedding band (I’m already married.) To get my dream wedding band! My husband was going to get it for me for our anniversary in December. But I talked to him about how I thought I would stop wearing the band I did have once I got my dream wedding band & that seemed wasteful. So we just exchanged them. I feel SOOO weird without a wedding band. Its suppose to be in between the 26th-29th. Sigh

    I think my center stone is right at a half carat, then the other side stones brings it up to a full carat. The band is a half as well. I so wouldn’t want anything bigger, its blingy and sparklers enough to blind anybody!

    @Sweet.Sugar.Rose: That sounds awesome. I’d be impatient with waiting for the new one too! And isn’t it nice when you can convince them to give you presents early?!

    @sleepingbeauty88: Thanks! My Fiance had to ask the jeweler to bring in emerald cut stones because NO WHERE sells them as a solitare. He actually went to the store and got to hand pick the diamond and the setting (which is a simple setting). I think it’s extra special that he had to plan all of this…without me knowing!

    @shannonmykayla: “lets show the 1 carateers that beauty comes in small packages too!!”

    I have to say, I think that comment was a bit offensive.  Comments like that imply that other women have that view.  It all contributes to an attitude of perceived superiority that is hurtful from either side.  Can’t we just look at beautiful rings without trying to prove anything?

    Can I play? My ring has a .85 center stone with a .50 carat pave band…on my size 7 finger. My wedding band (not in this pic) also has .50 pave.

    I love it!

    Here’s mine! The center stone is .50 carat. With the band (which I dont have a picture of) it will be 1.25 in total weight and 65 diamonds in all! I LOVE my ring!!!

    EDIT: I was going to post, but the image uploader won’t work! You can kind of see mine in my profile picture, though!

    Beautiful rings, ladies!!!

    My big one is .4 carats.

    Fiance invested more in the other Cs than just carat weight. He e sees quality as more important that just size <3
