Shopgirlee1122 on Pricescope thinks her new engagement ring looks a little too small. It’s 1.81 carats, with gorgeous hearts and arrows, and her fiancee picked it out for her based on all her requests. It is everything she wanted, just maybe the rock isn’t as big as she thought it would appear on her hand.
As you might expect, there were plenty of comments in the thread, and I understand she is in New York, where expectations might be a little higher, but her ring is twice the national average of 0.90 ct. In Europe, the average ring size is 0.30 ct. In her posts, she’s way more concerned with the “everyone says this…” “everyone says that…”, instead of how she feels, which I just find kind of odd. But that’s just me. I’m the one who married my husband nearly three years ago and just recently got an engagement ring (we specialize in doing everything backwards).
I love Pricescope and have spent plenty of time drooling over rings, and posters on there tend to encourage larg(er) diamond purchases, (it is a diamond lover’s forum, after all!), so I was amused to see what some of them had to say. This post was from 2009, so I wonder how things worked out – did she upgrade? Was she finally happy? Was he offended? Did they actually marry?
