@shelbyBee:  You’re ring just made my jaw drop. I LOVE topaz they are so unique and beautiful to me. (Ah crap I used unique, I mean in that no two ever seem the same to me, I love their individuality.) The icy blue reminds me or a winterwonderland, or a beautiful lake. I’m rambling.

She’s stunning.

@shelbyBee:  your ring is so beautiful! A blue stone was my second choice. still think at times I should have gone with a blue stone. Gem stone rings are great so great your stone has history

My insecurities started with my first set (bottom) after I had it for a couple of years. When shopping, I was dead set on a solitaire but in the end decided I wanted more bling. I also wanted a ‘timeless’ ‘traditional’ set. Fast-forward to last month when I finally picked out my new set (top). I love love love it and don’t have any insecurities (yet)! I’m caught staring at it ALL THE TIME. And YES, I switched from white gold to yellow gold. I HATED yellow gold until we had this set custom ordered.

Mt insecurities are that it is to big for my finger, worry that people think I am a lush for having such a large ring. I always feel the need to point out that it is NOT a diamond incase they think that we spent to much money. I worry it will scratch/chip being Moganite (although I will have it replaced if I have to) or loose colour. I think its stunning and it was love at first site but sometimes I wonder if I should have got a diamond

I know this thread is a few weeks old but I’m feeling a little insecure about my ring tonight And needed a place to vent.  I feel awful saying this but I, like many others, wish my stone was a little larger. I feel ridiculous and horrible because it cost my Fiance a lot of money (or at least what I think is a lot for a ring). It is a 1.34 carat emerald cut diamond.  I think it’s beautiful and I love it but my issue is that I have the smallest ring out of my circle of friends and even my coworkers. They all have at least 2.5 carat rings. Even my Fiance noticed one night. He asked me when we got home from being out with people If I am happy with my ring. I said of course I am, why? And he just said he noticed mine is smaller than the other girls’ rings. I think I am feeling more insecure lately because my best friend just got engaged with a ring that is over 3 carats. I don’t know. I feel like a horrible brat complaining and feeling insecure when there’s people who can’t even afford to eat or pay rent but sometimes it’s tough when I keep comparing myself to people around me.

@msmaddox:  Cheers to that! And I agree, my biggest insecurity is the quality of center stone also. F color, s12, good cut. I wanted a 1 carat at least, which it is exactly, so other things had to be compromised in the stone.  It’s white and sparkly but I think because I know the specs I look for the faults in it. My jeweler says it’s a good, nice stone. Done. I’ll post a pic when my custom setting is done next week. Your ring is GORGEOUS BTW!

@phillypheet:  I am getting married in 44 days… and I noticed you are getting married in June.  I have lots of friends who are already married and to be honest… I don’ t think the size of the ring matters… HOWEVER we are only human and we all have a side to us who always wishes for more whether it be physical, emotional, material, etc…  It is  natural to be envious of things- it is part of who we are.  But I have noticed that mabe because we are engaged we still pay attention to those details, my friends who are already married don’t seem to really notice anymore.  I wouldn’t feel guilty for how you feel… you can’t talk yourself out of feeling a certain way… I actually have a larger size ring and wish mine was more sparkly- so bottom line I think everyone wants what they can’t have and I am sure your ring looks gorgeous on you.  Remember he picked it out just for you- size or no size that ring is your commitment to each other- there will be many more years ahead of you guys to buy bigger things!!!!!!!!

I read everyone’s insecurities before looking at the picture. If you could all see what I see you wouldn’t even have a shadow of a doubt that each and everyone of you have beautiful rings! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I do understand where you are all coming from at the same time. Sometimes it can be hard not to have these feelings as we are all human! It happens with so many things (houses, cars, clothes, purses, even being jealous of someone else’s stage in their relationship.) Everyone is different though. That’s what makes us all so lovely, and all of these rings so lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚

@jujee:  thanks for this. Your post made me feel a lot better. You are right- once I’m married I probably won’t even notice / care!

Some days, I have ALL kinds of insecurities with my ring. — I’m about to sound like a HUGE whiner! —

For starters, I always wanted a halo or something more unique but my Darling Husband insisted on a solitaire, to which I said if he was going solitaire, then I wanted an emerald cut. I got a round cut solitaire. And if I really want to be nitpicky, sometimes I wish it was a full carat. But, boy does it sparkle when it’s clean!!

My wedding band is a tungsten band from Amazon, and at first I didn’t mind, but I wish that it matched the platinum color of my e-ring. I love mixed metals, but because the color is so close, it looks like I wasn’t trying to mix and sometimes feels cheap. (Which, it was. It was $10 from Amazon). My sparkly band is actually a berricle band that came from a set I bought pre-engagement. I wish it were real and much larger. I feel like I got cheated on the wedding band I guess.

However, I do love my ring most days – I did get to pick the solitaire setting and I did get the platinum metal I asked for. White gold yellows quickly on me, and I can’t stand that.  It looks good on my hand, it sparkles like mad, and it reminds me everyday of the man who gave it to me. Sure, it’s not MY taste, but it is his, and I see him whenever I look at it.

 

Also – I wish my nails still looked like this . ๐Ÿ™ Right now they are chewed to shit ๐Ÿ™
