Ok, so I went from a 2ct solitiare to a 2ct total weight three stone ring because I felt the 2ct solitaire was too big and “flashy” for this area. THEN my husband got me a slightly under 1ct bezel set solitaire, because the three stone ring was “pokey.” So my current ring is much smaller than my original e-ring, and looking at it now, I almost feel that it is too big too. This is the direct opposite of shrinkage. It’s bizarre.
It isn’t so much that I don’t think it (or any of the rings, really, I still have all of them) looks good on my hand, it does, but I worry that someone will say something about it being big. What is wrong with my brain that I worry so much about the perception of (for instance) the guy who does my nails? 1ct is pretty average for this area, so I don’t feel like I’m waving around a giant ring, but it is larger than my mother’s or my step-mother’s rings. My sister has a large, square pink sapphire, so I don’t have to worry about comparison there.
This is a really stupid thing to be fretful about, I know. Particularly since I’ve broken my hand (thanks to the bees who made me go to the doctor last night) and I can’t wear any rings at all for the time being. I just needed a little…vent? rant? I don’t know. Probably therapy.
