    @EmJayHyphenAy:  the monstrocities I’ve seen on this site

    Just because you love your ring doesn’t mean you have to hate on other bees’ rings.  Mine is 1.25, so I don’t fall into your category of “something that is very large and ugly.”  Unprovoked name-calling–just because a bee’s with ring is different from yours–just isn’t necessary.  Thanks.

    @MissCaraMia:  Your ring is very pretty!

    @laceydoilies:  that’s sweet. I know the feeling my honey mentioned he got a raise and wanted to upgrade my ring. I of course gor excited and said let’s go! When I was there I coildnt let go. I’m so attached to it. Fiance was so surprised I told him it had much more value to it since he chose it plus I’m attached. He did get a ring enchancer for it. Since my ring doesn’t come with a band it’s an Infiniti band so it’s hard to match it. I love it. I will never give up my itty.

    large rings can be gorgeous, but i love “small”/dainty rings.

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  I don’t have a formal e-ring but I wear my promise ring on my left hand. The center stone is only 1/6 carat. I don’t feel bad about the size at all. (Psssst… I don’t believe that 100% of the huge sparklers shown on this site are real diamonds, or that people are always honest about the specs).

    I love my small ring. I don’t even know how many carats it is, because I don’t care about that. I just like that it’s pretty, suits me, is very comfortable and is MY wedding/engagement ring.

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  I have a small diamond, and I love it! Honestly, your ring looks perfect.

    @jgzebree8989:  That’s so awesome. My friend has a smaller one and her husband said he wanted to upgrade it and she told him no way. My thing is I don’t want an upgrade but if you want to give me a different piece of jewellery I would not refuse haha. I think that the infinity band is a nice compromise for him, though, because I know for a lot of men it is a sense of pride.

    I think your title has an extra word (“Not”).  I hope you can find true acceptance and love for your ring without putting down others.  Good luck OP.

    @Jabberwocky:  Ooooooooh……..I actually love that ring. It makes me think of an old hollywood glam, super chic, vintage wedding. I have really tiny hands though, so rings like that always look ridiculous on me.

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  Personally I think anything over 0.5ct is ‘big’ and despite possibly being in the minority on the Bee, in real life and my social circle my 0.5ct seems titally normal. I just ignore the Bee’s big-rock posts. 

     

    And my Fiance could easily afford a huge rock but I’m glad he went with this size.. I wouldn’t want to fear bring mugged! Plus I’m a modest person.
