Literally not one person in this thread is “angry” other than you. He asked for advice and many people were giving it, just because you disagree doesn’t make everyone else “angry” and “jealous”. Many people simply don’t see the value in an FL or IF diamond since to the eye there is no difference, for some people it is important and that’s fine too. OP made his choice because it was important to him, it’s not important to me so I gave my opinion on it because he was looking for them. You sound super insecure by implying that someone with an average quality diamond “looks cheap”. I literally give no shits what anyone chooses to wear on their finger, how “cheap” it looks, how big it is, if it’s flawless or not, it doesn’t affect my life one bit. It’s just jewelry, and just a symbol, and while I think it’s incredibly sweet that OP and your SO chose something rare/flawless as a symbol of how they feel about you, it does not in any way mean that someone who chooses something smaller or of lesser quality feels any less for their partner. People get way too wrapped up in that kind of thinking.

She is bitter because the posters over on PS were not as impressed with her stone (or what her husband paid for it) as she thought they would be.
I agree with UK Bee – there are some seriously beautiful rocks (even ones that are not D/IF, though some are) and some serious knowledge over there.

It’s a very pretty stone, and it sounds like the price or whether it’s a bargain isn’t an object in this case. To each his/her own! If your fiancée has understated tastes, I think a simple platinum solitaire would be lovely!

You chose a beautiful stone! I think she’ll love it!
Personally, I’m all for quality over quantity. I knew I wanted a center stone no larger than 1.4 carats, but I also wanted a colorless stone with little to no imperfections so he found the perfect diamond for me that was the perfect balance of everything. Size isn’t everything to everyone. A lot of people say they’d rather have a bigger diamond because you can’t see the flaws with the naked eye, but it really just comes down to preference. Different strokes ya know? For me, I needed a mind clean stone, not just an eye clean one. I also examine my ring weekly using a 30x magnification loupe so seeing imperfections would bother me.

if she said she wanted 1.5 – 2 carats I think she wants over 2 carats. She didn’t mention D or flawless…but she mentioned size.
