@Lt.Columbo:  lol.

Just for the record, I still consider MYSELF immature sometimes. I’m still learning every day!

A great lesson from second grade that we should try to remember as adults…

@melisslp:  I do think when OP said “need” in the first post it was hyperbole. I hope, anyway.

 

Moissanite would definitely be a great solutioN!

rubber duck is a need for sure

if you have the money but are using it to build credit go for it because you can pay it off soon. 

The bullying thing is brought up here because the Bee specifically says to avoid the snark and the snark has been in full force on this thread.

@mcklough:  There is a difference in bullying and snark. No one has been bullied here. And I do agree that the term bullying is brought about when an OP disagrees with what PP are saying a lot more than when it actually qualifies as bullying. So some people use sarcasm. The OP used sarcasm, is she now bullying others?

I think is wonderful you can talk to your husband about everything and that he is so supportive! Both are important in a marriage and it sounds like you hit the jackpot with your husband. Congrats!

When we got engaged my husband had been laid off. He proposed with a band of channel set diamonds and sapphires. I would have loved a bigger ring, but I waited. He saved up $ to buy me a ring for our wedding and the company he worked for went bankrupt (He works in alternative energy and the market was not super stable for awhile). He had to put all the $ he had saved up toward other bills.

3 years later he presented me with a 1.77 emerald, F color, VS1 on a simple platinum band. It was worth the wait, more than he could have affored the first time around (and the second for that matter), was paid for in cash AND added some new energy to our relationship.

I think you should do whatever you want to do, but it does seem like the best things can be worth waiting for, and that tastes often change over time (I wanted a round and an Asscher before deciding on an Emerald).

Good luck whatever you do!

Just wanted to say something regarding your ring- the halo surrounding your center diamond is large and with a large setting like that the focus is not so much on the center diamond as it is the ring as a whole. In this case, your ring as a whole already looks quite large. I don’t think it would be worth it to increase the size of your center diamond unless you wanted to switch the setting to a more delicate halo or a solitaire…this is just my 2 cents. IMO a larger setting detracts from the center stone but if you take away your larger setting and focus on a larger center stone the ring may look smaller since you have taken away the larger halo- would you be okay with that? Sorry, if this doesn’t sound like it makes any sense!

EXAMPLE! This is a Tiffany Soleste 1.22 carat center ring: (original thread:http://forum.purseblog.com/the-jewelry-box/eye-candy-new-tiffany-soleste-686411.html )

This is a Tiffany Soleste .78 carat center ring! (original thread: http://forum.purseblog.com/the-jewelry-box/white-diamond-sola-tiffany-ring-655624-9.html )

THIS, is a Tiffany Novo 1.5 Carat center ring:

This thread is kind of out of control. I think OP probably should have phrased her initial comment better….but I know I have said “oh I need those shoes!” when shopping when really, I knew I didn’t actually need them.

I would tend to agree that financing a super expensive ring is a poor decision, but lots of people do it, and that wasn’t her question in the first place. And we don’t know if her DH makes 20,000 or 200,000 so it’s really not up to us to judge her financial decisions. To be clear, I probably wouldn’t be trying to upgrade my ring as a newlywed, but I also think there has been a lot of unnecessary snark here. Name calling (i.e. immature) and telling someone they have to learn from their own mistakes is uncalled for, in my opinion. I think if OP was truly immature, she would be engaging all of the rude comments she has gotten, but if you notice she has really only respond to the constructive comments and a few negative comments. My point is: do I agree with the OP? Not really. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to insult her or call her names.
