i think it is completely natural to feel that way, i caught myself doing it today. maybe try visiting your ring again and attempting to fall in love with it like you did the first time you saw it!

I think I feel that way sometimes.

I love my ring, but I still can’t stop looking at other girls’ rings onlines..especially ring porns! when the girl has a beautiful big bling bling (I love flashy rings), I do feel slight jealous..

In real life, when I see other girls with beautiful engagemeng rings, I glanced at it and just tried to look away.. I mean I could say “oh you have a beautiful ring” but I think sometimes I hate to admit I have this ring envy feeling inside me.

I think it’s natural and normal as long as you don’t demand your SO to buy you something ridiculous..

It’s werid because I don’t like wearing necklaces or anything but when it comes down to e-ring, oh . . I do envy!

I think it’s normal. It’s not even really true envy. You just seem something pretty and it’s tiding you over until you get your own ๐Ÿ™‚

I get told that I have a pretty ring by women with no rings, small rings, huge rings, etc. And I do the same. I don’t think it’s weird to look at other ladies’ rings ๐Ÿ™‚

It happens. I get ring envy myself. My FH gave me a moissanite (which I love) but he has always said he wants me to have a diamond so I’ve been looking at brilliant earth. I found a ring I love, but coming on here I second guess my choice a lot. I just go back and look at the ring I love at BE and I remind myself of why I fell in love with it. It helps ๐Ÿ™‚ 

By the way, I love, love, love the ring that’s on laway. It’s so pretty and I love the band on the e-ring.

@spence1022:  i think your ring is pretty.  i really love the setting of the one on layaway.  i like the infinity pave band.  gorgeous.

here is something my mother taught me about the realization of jealousy.  keep this in mind.  just because someone has a stunning, large diamond ring does not mean that they have an amazing relationship.  you never know what goes on behind closed doors.  just enjoy what you have.

@spence1022:  Yes. I think I do understand how you feel exactly!

When I was married first time, my ex gave me a fake e-ring,, and at that time, I didn’t really care and I really didn’t know anything about diamond quality and what not.. I just ASSUMED it was real (My ex always bragged he bought me the ring instead of buying himself a new car).. Everyone always asked me “Is it real?” and I was always so offended and said OF COURSE! and they always said “Why is it so foggy?” “Why is it so yellow?” “Why doesn’t it sparkle” “why does it have SCRATCHES? (I really didn’t know anything at that time about diamonds. Here goes a girl who knew nothing about jewerly and never really cared about it)

When we got divorced, that cheap bas***d said, “yeah, keep that ring”. I didn’t want to keep it obviously, and when I took it down to the jewerly store,,? the guy said “I will give you $50 for it”,, I said $50? you better check your sources! there is no way this ring is $50..

turns out it was big big ugly not even good qautliy fake ring..

I was so shamed. I have to say I give a lot of respects to women who wear their non-diamond rings with pride and joy because I don’t know if I can. I don’t know if I can say oh it’s not a real diamond.. Maybe because of my past!

I wish I am not so obssessed with real diamond e-rings, but I can’t help it! THank God I have bees here who can understand me!

hm.. i guess i’m in the minority. once we had my ring picked out i stopped looking at rings online. I definitely still notice other womens rings but thats just because i’m recently engaged. i haven’t “shopped” since we picked my ring out.

Visit your ring! tell see beautifulthings at work all day, ranging from all prices. I know some are easily 20k rings. I justremindmyself of what my ring represents and that someone will always have a bighee ring than me, and someone else will have a smaller ring.

I absolutely, 100% think you are normal. Do you have any idea what the time frame is for when your new ring will be paid for?

You’re definitely not alone feeling that way. I’ve had my e-ring for almost 2 years now and still find myself oggoling over rings on WB and other random sites. I don’t know if its because DH picked it himself without any input from me. I wasn’t in love with my e-ring but loved that he wanted to surprise me. I rock my rock with pride and hey at least it’s looking & not making our men feel bad about their purchases.

I have a jewelry obsession; I find myself looking at it ALL the time, everywhere. LOL

I don’t know if it’s normal, but it sure is fun!

I decided I never wanted to have ring envy, so I went the full monte and asked for a 3ct center stone in a custom halo. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, that’s not to say I don’t have plans for more awesome jewelry in the future though, and I still lust after other rings I see on PriceScope and such.
