    Ukulele4You:  Unfortunately, I have a basic phone, that takes lousy photos.

    I can’t wear it anymore, as it’s too small for me. I had it welded to another ring grandmom had, which she got for her anniversary. The little diamonds in it came from my mother’s 1st engagement ring. Her first fiance was killed in WWII, in Europe. I now realize I really have to have the set made bigger, because of the sentiment involved.

    MxChinca:  that makes me sick! I can see being disappointed if Fiance could afford a larger stone, but got a smaller one. But it’s a symbol of love and commitment..not something to show how big his pocketbook is. That being said, I’m young, and I know my Fiance slaved to buy me my beautiful .31 carat diamond. And since I have tiny hands it looks a lot bigger than it is. I would have accepted his proposal with a plain band or no band though.

    Bahaha… no. 

    First of all, as previously pointed out, being butthurt about the size of a gemstone is a total first world problem. Who has time? 

    Second of all (and speaking to the “it’s thoughtless not to get her the ring she wants” idea that I sometimes hear), I am not a fan of traditional proposals where the man is expected to come up with some big grand surprise and the woman’s feelings on such a huge decision are reduced to a yes-or-no answer after having waited passively for some acceptable amount of time for this major life event to happen to her. So in the grand scheme of things, whether a guy disregarded my jewelry preferences would feel a lot less thoughtless to me than whether he disregarded how I feel about becoming his life partner.

    2XMOB:  It is so sweet that your Mom shared the diamonds from her ring with your Grandmother. And if it makes you feel better I only have a basic phone too.

    Well how small is small? Are we talking like under .50ct? I wouldn’t say no though.
