@joya_aspera:  I agree with you wholehearteldy… I was engaed before and had a marquise, got cushion cut this time…. I still think marquise and pears are beautiful and I got yellow gold this time… I have never stopped wearing it…  people jump on a bandwagon… I do me if I like it I am wearing.  Not to mention, her ring doesnt look like the marquise settings of the 80’s .

Somedays I get a little insecure/worried about 

 

a) How the ‘thicker’ band makes the center stone appear smaller than it is? I’ve seen other 0.7 carat stones with thinner bands tt look bigger 

b) Scratches/tiny dents (which I know they’re inevitable by now haha)

But… these 2 points also have their ‘merits’:  

a) While my Fiance requested for a thinner band (as he asked for my preference before), the jeweler recommended that a thicker one was more suitable to hold the side profile as it was meant to show a silouette of us dancing > to illustrate how we started dating 🙂 

b) I’m ok with a 0.7 size – but what’s more impt was that he went for quality by choosing a triple excellent, VVSI clarity, I colour stone 

c) Lastly, while I was wrongly mistaken that a Platinum band may have less scratches (the contrary is true because it is a soft metal) & he chose Platinum, despite it costing 2x more than white gold because he says any scratches/dents can be polished/buffed in the future w/o displacing the metal + he was thinking about its hypoallergic qualities > my Fiance is a Chemistry teacher so I guess he went to do lots of research into the metal types LOL 

Thus, insecurities aside, this ring is very special because it is symbolic on many levels i.e. how we met & months worth of effort that went into its customization 🙂 

P.S pardon the long-winded post haha, its my habit to always cover the +/- points >.<

@NJatTheDisco:  THank you! It does sparkle, but I guess I blush when people give it so much attention… I picture them thinking “how much did that cost?!?!” LOL not everything is about money….

I’m honestly worried that I won’t like my new “official” $3000 set as much as my little $325 ring that he gave me for Christmas.

I love my ring but have had a couple of people ask if my center stone is yellow if they’re viewing it in a certain light. It is from a necklace that my grandpa had made for my grandma, and he bought it as an estate stone. It is a K/L but very well cut. I’ve come to prefer a warmer diamond as a result!

@MissLibra:  A monster? That would bother me too! For what it’s worth, I think your ring is beautiful, and so sparkly and delicate.

My insecurities:

1. It spins a little on my finger, but I can barely get it over my knuckle, so I wouldn’t want it sized down. I feel like people judge me whenever they ask to see it and I have to adjust it first (like it’s tacky for your ring to not fit perfectly?? I have some crazy ideas in my head.)

2. I look younger than I am, and I’m young to begin with! So I feel judged for having any type of ring…this is more a general insecurity than ring specific.

3. I just lost a diamond out of my halo 2 days ago (thankfully, there’s a 2 year warranty on them getting replaced). But that’s going to bother me until it’s fixed.

@NJatTheDisco:  but if she didn’t make that comment she wouldn’t have fulfilled her compulsive need to make a passive aggresive simulant comment. I mean, c’mon, she’s got a reputation to uphold….

My stone is .90 carats and I initially wanted larger. We’re getting 1 carat worth of side stones so the total carat weight will be near 2.. I settled for a flawless, perfectly cut diamond and don’t regret our decision. I’m in love with my diamond and can’t wait for the ring to be made!

@NJatTheDisco:  right? way to work in her own disdain for sims, even though it had NOTHING to do with the original topic.

@nerdybird:  I’ve never seen someone so hard pressed about what another chicks partner put on their finger. She probably sits in her room with a kill list with MOSSANITE written 10x. Like “when I find you, I’m going to kill you”. lol

@colorofmyheart:  We’re in the same boat, I also have FI’s grandmother’s ring and sometimes feel insecure about the size.  I love the ring, and I love the sentimentality, but it would be fun to have something big and sparkley now and then.  And the comments kind of suck, people have asked if I was dissapointed, a mutual friend told him (while drunk) that I was worth a better ring, and my brother the comedian said I should lose my ring so my Fiance can buy me a real one.
