i was at a work training and someone had a simple 2 ct round. it was so clear and sparkly. it looked huge cause the girl was super skinny.

My aunt’s ring is 2.75ish carats and that’s the largest I’ve seen IRL. It’s very lovely and tasteful, since she has it in a plain solitaire and wears a plain gold band.

My mom’s friend’s ring is close to 4 ct (the center is around 3ct and it has diamonds going down the shoulders of the ring).  I’m from a small town so you don’t see rings that size very often. It’s real too –  I aparently asked her once when I was younger, though I don’t remember asking at all!

A coworker has a 5carat round brilliant classic Tiffany. (she lost it in the parking lot once, all day and found it under her car, LUCKY!)
And not too long ago we did a wedding party (hair) and the bride was wearing, what had to be at least, a 15carat cushion cut diamond. And all her sisters and friends were wearing 5ct + rings. Damn! That was a fun day! 🙂

I’ve seen a couple of 3+ stones. An anesthesiologist who I work with sometimes has a big one, and a girl who was in a couple of my classes in grad school had an asscher that looked at least the size of a 2.5 round, so it was probably about 3. Her husband is an investment banker.

I’m jealous of you ladies who have tried on big honkers! Hopefully I’ll be able to when we look for wedding bands…

A jewelry store owners’ wife in my hometown sports an outlandish 10ct soltaire. She is super tiny and it looks  to be weighing her down. She’ll have back problems in no time.

One of my friends from college has a 6ct engagement ring (it was her husband’s, mother’s stone).  And my Mother-In-Law has a 5ct solitaire for her engagement ring..  she doesn’t wear it much but it’s gorgeous.. sigh!!  My Father-In-Law bought the stone in Japan a long time ago and brought it to the US and had it set for her.

I saw a 9ct princess cut, but it was in a store on Jewelers Row in Philadelphia.. They let me try it on (I was “locked” in their store anyway).. I thought it would look too big, but I was in love.. GIVE ME BLING!
