I am no lady in waiting I am glad I have kept my girl friend in the dark on her diamond I haven’t even told her about this web site (she is not big into forums). I am kinda glad I have not told her either as she might want to go up in carat after seeing all the beautiful rings posted here.
I took out my FF to look at rings to find a size she was comfortable with and she like diamonds around 1ct to 1.2ct and she did not want me going larger than that.
Now I must admit that I myself have been swayed to look for a larger carat diamond from everything I have read here even if my price might jump about 3K.
I was able to convince her to let me look up to 1.5ct for as I think she was uncomfortable with the price tag (first thing she always looks at so I don't spend too much) not the actual ratio of ring size to finger when we were looking.
