    Your ring is gorgeous! I’m so glad to hear that what others do on the bee can’t take away your joy and make you feel defensive. Sorry your thread is getting derailed by people focusing in on your using a less-than-completely-flatttering term for huge rings.

    @jcent:  +100 

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  Your reference to bigger diamond rings as “monstrocities” demonstrates that you are not quite over the “ring envy” phase yet. Just because others can afford a bigger ring doesn’t mean their bigger ring is not “full of love”.

    @LeSpice:  I love moissy’s, I have a pair of ear rings that are a carat each and they are my favorite to wear, but I bought them bc they are imitation diamonds or that is what the jewlerer called them that when I bought them.  I don’t think Imitation diamond is a negative term… I have some white sapphire jewelry too and I like to look at them as imitation diamond as well…

    @FutureDrAtkins:  Lol i like statistics…they are rough estimates obviously…but that is what I have seen on here.  Every time I am like OMG how do all these women afford these 3 carat diamonds and then I notice they are moissy’s which there is nothing wrong with that.  I almost got a moissy over my diamond ring bc my man could of saved a ton of money and I could of had a bigger ring.  In the end we decided on a diamond but I still love moissys

    @BrideToBe14:  I love your profile pic!  Sorry but I just couldn’t help joining the making up stats fun :-)!! 

    OP- For what it’s worth I think your ring is very pretty!  No one says you need a big ring for it to be an engagement ring, some people love them some hate them, everyone should get what they want and will love to wear!

    @birchwood29:  My tone wasn’t putting down moissy’s.  I love moissy’s I was merely stating the fact that a lot of ppl who are posting their 3 carat diamonds on here are not in fact diamonds they are moissy’s.  I didn’t say diamonds were better or moissy’s..

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  My ring isn’t small but it isn’t huge either.  Its beautiful and I love it.  I would have happily accepted any ring my husband gave to me.

    I feel very, very sorry for men engaged too or married to women who value baubles over sentiment.  Who feel entitled to a huge ring or would be embarrassed to wear a small one.  Who would reject a good man if he couldn’t spring for a certain size rock.  

    I get that a woman might feel hurt if her beloved could afford a nice ring, had no problem spending on himself but got her a $100 special from Wal-Mart.  But if that’s who he is, that’s who you’re marrying.  

    If I were a guy and a woman demanded a certain size ring, I’d run for the hills.  Not a person I’d want to be tied too.

    @MrsTywinLannister:  Thanks:) Yeaah I mean when I first joined the Bee I was like MAN, the average diamond ring women get must be like a 2.5 carat with all these huge diamonds everywhere…I didn’t even know what moissys were then, but I do now and like both them & diamonds. Although morganites are my favorite:)

    @sparkletiger:  I don’t think that’s true. Think of all the times yellow gold has been called a less-than-flattering term. As an example, imagine a post that says “Here’s my engagement ring, I love that it’s while gold because I think yellow gold is old-fashioned” (not much of a stretch). And then, someone like me with a yellow gold ring comes along posting about how OMG HOW DARE SOMEONE THINK YELLOW GOLD IS OLD FASHIONED? ARE YOU CALLING MY RING A HAS-BEEN? FROTH SPUTTER!! …but it would be the OP whose emotions were too raw?

    @BrideToBe14:  Yeah, I kind of feel a little sorry for people who spring for a large diamond these days because whenever I see an unusually large stone now, I immediately think its likely a simulant – particularly if the woman wearing it is fairly young.

    @BrideToBe14:  Haha 🙂 Math is fun! I do know what you mean though. WB is full of moissy porn, moreso than any other site I think.
