@RubyStar:  

The worst part is that some of these girls are my friends!


You need new friends!

People like that are clearly quite clueless, and rude. A 1 ct. stone is nothing to scoff at. Hell, it’s considered huge in my social circle! I once met a girl who said she would accept nothing less than a 2 ct. I told her to get a new boyfriend because it just wasn’t happening.

My ring’s center stone is half a carat in size. It’s plenty for me. For my fiance and I, our long term goals are more important than buying something that will poke an eye out. 1 carat I think is a really nice sized ring. I haven’t had any negative comments other than one person asking if it was real! Everyone else thinks its beautiful. Whoever says its too small is ridiculous! They should keep their opinions to themselves in that case. If the people saying that are your ‘friends’, it might be time to find some replacement friends! Some people get weird when those they know get engaged. Sometimes, there is a jealousy, or feeling of being left out or left behind, or failing in some sort of made up competition. I’ve had one particular friend who has behaved rather badly since my becoming engaged, to the point of where I’ve decided to get to know better some other people in my life who I haven’t spent as much time with previously.

@BrandNewBride:  haha. love it.

I have no idea how big my stone it, or how big anyone’s stones are. I had one girl who stared at my ring for a ridiculously long time (one of FI’s friends wives, who actually took the year off before they got married so she could plan the wedding – they’d only been together for six months before the proposal and she had a six year old already). I thought that was really rude – I asked her if she was done appraising my ring yet. materialistic $&#@% …

@RubyStar:  How rude! Who are these people??! When Darling Husband and I looked at rings we looked at .5 and 1 carat and I actually preferred the .5 because with the double halo and all the details it was just too much for me! Ppl always stop me to say how gorgeous my ring is, so if your center stone is double the size of mine I’m sure it’s not small! These ppl are jerks and you should find new ppl to hang out with.

RubyStar:  Don’t worry. I got a moissy for ethical reasons. I’m clumsy & lose things easily so I didn’t want to be responsible for a 20k ring! I love diamonds on other people and I have no opinion toward those that want/have one. good luck! I absolutely love my moissanite. Round brilliant bezel. classic. no one has ever asked me “is it real” – I’ve only had lovely comments EXCEPT FROM A FRIEND (or so I thought!) who i told ‘hey, you know this isn’t a diamond’ explained my reasoning and suggested it as an option. At the time, she was dying to get engaged to her now fiance. he didn’t want to spend a lot so I’m like, here:maybe this? “oh god, no thats so cheap, maybe one day you’ll upgrade.” Then I saw a ring on some celeb and I said hey, thats almost exactly like mine, and she teased me and said, yeah but hers is real. It shouldn’t matter the ring size or material – i’m just happy people found love.

People can be nasty a–holes.

RubyStar:  That is so sad. My ring is a quarter of the size of your ring and I have barely gotten any rude comments apart from a few from people who don’t mean anything to me.

I really think that if people have nothing kind to say about your ring, they shouldn’t say anything at all. A ring is a symbol of your love for your relationship, if all they care about is the size of their bling then I really do not believe that they are ready for marriage.

I love my .5 carat ring. I wouldn’t want anything bigger and I’m sure I would be just as happy if it were half the size. It is elegant and understated yet extremely sparkly and catches the eye. I have had maybe 2 people say awkward things (seriously, where do these people come from? I’m always amazed.) — but these are people whose styles I would never want to emulate.  I’ve also had many people tell me that the ring is so elegant and beautiful and not gaudy like so many others. I feel very lucky that my Fiance has good style and bought for quality of stone and cut, not size.  I think your ring sounds perfect, and you should ignore anyone who implies otherwise.

 First, the girls who are single are just being jealous because they don’t feel loved or pretty so ignore them. If it makes you feel better, I think anything much bigger than a carat looks vulgar unless you have really big hands. Diamond quality is also much more important than size–yes you can get a box of wine for $12.99 but a bottle of chateau Margaux could cost hundreds.

Honestly, I associate super big diamonds with Texas millionaire trophy wives with big fake hair and lots of bad plastic surgery.<br /><br />

I personally prefer smaller stones, but I am a small person. I think 1 carat is a perfect size for a lot of people and I am sure your ring is beautiful!
