Wow, thats a nice ering!

My advice is to rock it. Who cares what other people say about it theres no reason to feel ashamed of it! Just say that your Fiance worked hard to save so that he could give you the perfect ring thats right for you both, theres nothing wrong with that.

And holy god, can you please post pictures when you get it?!!? I’m sure I’ll drool all over my keyboard!

You know it’s real so why do you care if others think its fake?  If somebody can’t tell the difference and gets some pleasure out of believing something that’s not true let them fill their boots. 

I’m sure the question won’t be “how did he come up with the cash for that” but rather “why was that a priority Rather than *insert random seemingly more responsible purchase*”. And again that’s where you have to decide for yourself how much you want to entertain people’s inquiries into your finances. A simple “we really wanted to buy a ring I’ll be happy to wear for the rest of my life” is more than sufficient if someone actually has the balls to ask. 

I don’t have an “excessively” large e-ring so I don’t face these questions though… So I don’t have too much real world experience to offer there.

I have a 1.22 carat round brilliant diamond with 41 diamonds on the band and sides and I at first thought it was too much but wouldn’t trade it for the world! I would love to have a 1.5 diamond plus but we got my diamond along for $7300 alone so it wasn’t in our budget! My mom thought my 1.22 was too big and looks fake but it seems a lot of ladies today have big diamonds on their fingers! Rock it!

If you’re only worried it’s too big because what others might/will think, forget it.  No matter what you have, what age you are, what your income is… someone with think it’s too big and someone else with think it’s too small… just enjoy it!

@SapphireSun:  “A simple “we really wanted to buy a ring I’ll be happy to wear for the rest of my life” is more than sufficient if someone actually has the balls to ask.”  Couldn’t say it any better.  And it’s obviously true if he preferred a solitaire but went with halo/pave.

@Lily-Grace202:  Just click on the “reply” and it does the @name link for you.  Very handy :).

Personally I think you should not have to justify what you are wearing on your hand or how you and Fiance finanically were able to afford it.
