Okay, so I work at a motorcycle shop and I do a lot of work thats really rough my hands. (I don'tfix the bikes, I'm the manager there.) I'm always getting parts, touching oil, getting my hands dirty and nails (which are real. And really super long) nasty and chipped. So I came across with a huge problem. I feel like one day I'm going to just look down at my hands and see my diamond missing from my engagement ring. I know my fiance would be pissed if he knew I had lost it, esp. at work when I could just not wear it there. BUT I want to wear it. I'm so proud of being his fiance, and PLUS I don't want guys hitting on me and being inappropriate so the ring on my finger really helps. So, in place of my real engagement ring I wanted to purchase a CZ ring to wear around at work because if I lose it, its cheap to replace. (my real diamond engagement ring has so much sentimental value, I really would just hate to lose it!) I decided to try and go with QVC because if the stone comes out of the setting they replace it for you. I settled on this ring because the picture was breathe taking. But the carrot size is just HUGE! (My engagement is only 1 ct! But its colorless and beautiful! Plus my hands are small, I'm about a size 4.5)The center stone is 2 ct. and the total is 2.9 carrots I believe. Do you think it's too big of stones for my tiny hands? And also, once I've never had a stone that big, I was wondering if anyone knew how realistic it looks to a real diamond of that size. Does Dimonique brand CZ look totally fake? I've heard good reviews, and I'm just hoping their quality is good. I don't wanna be going around with a gauky plastic thing on my finger. Thanks ladies!
