tbenjamin4884 :  The bee has a way of kind of sucking us in and away from reality because we are subjected to beautiful jewelry to glare at daily but the flip side of that it can feed insecurity and how satisfied we feel about our own rings. That’s why sometimes it’s good to take a step back from everything. Alot of times if I feel some kind of way I will just wear a plain band for awhile or a diamond band alone and when i put my bling back on I get a whole new appreciation for it. Alot of times Im a one ring girl as well because i think it decreases my finger muffin top! Lol…Your solitaire is beautiful, the stone looks great and its very sizable on your finger. Take time and enjoy it!

I recently switched from a 6 prong to a 4 prong after I purchased my new lab created stone and it does sit a little better with my wedding ring.  I love seeing before and after pictures and I can’t wait to see yours πŸ™‚ I hope you love yours ❀️

redearthlady :  I agree – I suppose that’s the problem with social media in general.  I do love the bee for giving me an outlet to share the appreciation I have for my rings.  Otherwise I would likely get criticized in other platforms by friends and family.

I love plain solitaires the most. They transcend time and are so classy and elegant. This is my dream ring so I have so many photos of it!! 

yes don’t let social media of any kind take your joy away. Nothing is as it seems on social media anyways!

tbenjamin4884 :  oh that’s so bloody beautiful my lovely!!!!!  Drooling!! I love halos but omg a solitaire is just so classic and stunning and just gets me!!! Your diamond looks so plump and juicy!! And that sparkle!!! You will get a bigger 2 carat one I’m sure, in the future, but truthfully it’s not that much bigger than yours!! It just costs a LOT more!!  For not too many mm bigger visually. It sucks the prices of diamonds. Fortunately we have lab grown diamonds now and moissanite. I absolutely LOVE all jewellery and totally agree that the Bee can mislead you into believing you need a bigger stone, better stone etc! I’m definitely guilty of changing my jewellery!! I’m really really loving marquis cuts set east west at the moment!! Thank god for moissanite I can have every cut and my connection in the jewellery biz helps with making my jewellery more cost effective. But it is an obsession and a disease lol nd I have it!! I believe it’s contagious too!! πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

jaqawilliams :  I’m.a bling lover myself and the bee does give us a place to share our love for jewelry. I love to share and also look,compliment and help others when I can. I loved your 6 prong solitaire and would love to see it as a 4 prong because I’m also contemplating switching mine to a 4 prong cathedral.

EmeleeRose :  I used to think that I had to wear a band or wear a band along with my engagement style ring but after being married so long and having kids I think you just get more comfortable with yourself and dont feel like you have to justify yourself to anyone so we wear what we like.

redearthlady :  This is so true and it’s the same with Pricescope. Looking at all these rings it’s easy to forget that most people don’t care that much about jewelry and have very average size center stones.

This .50 carat diamond pear isn’t my original, but it was a great little find!
