Um, two carats is not small.  Even in the slightest.  If she said that then she is obviously trying to ruffle your feathers.  It must have worked.  Personally, I wouldn’t be complaining about a 2.3 carat ring.

@AshleyR83:  Oh don’t let that get to you. I’m mean I would have put her on the spot right after she said that and said “Geez, thanks that’s such a nice thing to say” and made her feel like an idiot in front of everyone. Anyway to late for that. Post your pic on here I bet tons of girls will be in love with your 2 carats, I will be mine is only .75 but guess what I love it to death!

@AshleyR83:  I dont think she was calling your ring small. She was saying that this other girls ring was so enormous, that it makes even a large diamond look small.

I can’t imagine what ring could make a 2carat diamond look small. She must be friends with Kim Kardashian.

a 2 carat ring is in no way on the small side. Maybe your coworker just wanted to remark how huge the othe ring was and didn’t mean to make you feel bad about yours. Anyways rings are just meant to flaut them. I really wanted a beautiful ring because If, I’m gonna wear a ring it better be beautiful, but I don’t link it to anything in my marriage like for me is jewelry. There’s not a big enough ring in this world to represent my love for my husband and our bond of trust. I just think sometimes we get carried away by these things and its just another piece of Jewelry. So if you like yours who cares what other people’s rings look like? There will always be someone with a bigger rock 🙂

Why did you take that comment negativly?? It was just a comparision, like “omg I thought AshleyR83 had a big ring, well this girls made that look tiny!”

To be fair, she said “her ring makes yours look tiny”, which is usually the type of thing said when something is big in comparison to another big thing (i.e., that battleship makes the cruise ship look tiny – cruise ship is still MASSIVE but the battleship happens to be bigger). I don’t really think it was any sort of attempt to make a dig at your ring or call it tiny. Just the opposite, in fact – they were referencing your ring as a large one.

Aww, don’t let what other people say bother you.  You love your ring and that is what matters.  And you have to realize that a 2+ carat center stone is objectively a large ring, compared to what the average bride has.

My first reaction on reading the post was that your co-worker wasn’t insulting your ring or implying your ring was small at all. I think she was just trying to describe how large this other person’s ring was by using your ring as a standard for a large ring.  It reminds me of the time a friend was telling me about a cruise she went on and said, “The boat was so huge, it made the Titanic look small.”  Was she really saying the Titanic was small?  Not at all.  She was using it as a well-known example of a large ship.  I’m thinking this co-worker may have been referring to your ring in the same way — as a well-known (among your coworkers) example of a large ring.

@Bostongrl25: I agree!

Anyways, a 2 carat ring is in NO WAY small or even close to being small. I only wish I had your problem.

I once saw a funny quote… “Bras are for support, not internet strangers”

Sorry, but it’s too funny not to share.  I agree with @Bostongrl25: that she was probably just remarking that the other person’s ring was so outrageously huge that it made your enormous rock look small.  I’d let it roll off my back if I were you 🙂

That was a rude comment for her to make, but come on, you obviously know your ring is not “tiny.” Don’t let it get to you!
