"Now I'm not saying she's a gold digger..."

Question:  I've been dating my boyfriend for 4 yrs and he finally proposed last month. We've always talked about the type and style of the ring, and he's always mentioned getting a smaller diamond.  I drilled in his head that I wanted a bigger diamond, so he knows that I really wanted a bigger ring.  Now that he's proposed, I've been wearing it for a month and I don't really like it.  What should i do?  I am embarrassed to wear such a small ring!!! (Atherton, CA)

Social Shrink:  Is this question a joke?  All I can see right now are the RED FLAGS meaning... GOLD DIGGER!!!!  Queue Kanye West por favor:

Okay... so, CONGRATS on your engagement.  We are so happy that you two are tying the knot.  But seriously, WTF?!?!  How can you complain about the ring size?!  Aren't you happy enough that you will be marrying "the love of your life"? It shouldn't matter if he proposed with a ring pop, the size of the ring should not be representative of how much he loves you!  Suck it up and realize that the ring does not mean anything.  And seriously, think about if you're a gold digger.  If you you are you, your future hubby better rethink his proposal!!!



  1. I must agree. sweetie, grow up. If he can't afford a bigger ring, you really need to respect that. If it bothers you too much, save up and pay for it yourself. Ask him what he had in mind when he bought you the ring, maybe hes saving the money meant for a bigger ring to go on a fantastic honeymoon, buy your dream house, or buy you a bigger wedding ring. The ring is meaningful, symbolic of eternal love and wrapping the band around your love, both of you wearing one of those bands. However, reality is what we live in, and theres no way around it. Be thankful for what you had, there are girls out there in the world who wish they could afford a piece of white cloth that they can call their wedding gown.

  2. There are people around the world who don't have fresh running water, food to eat, and live in cardboard boxes and you're worried about a damn ring size. This question makes me sick.

  3. Find a man that can afford to wear $25K gold grillz, then you'll be set and he can get you any diamond ring size you want.
