I just love this forum. I never knew it existed! I just finished surfing the show me your ring section and i must say WOW!!! most are huge, bigger then i've ever seen! Now my question is, was this your original ring? or did you get upgraded throughout the years? I know my mom started out with a .25 then a .33 then a .50 then a 1ct lol she has 4 rings now. I have a promise ring from Shane co. Which has a great upgrade policy. Trade it in for its value and get something else 1$ more on the diamond and twice the band value. I am very content with what i have now which is a .42 center. I would love to have a 1ct but it seems a bit big for my hand. I wear a 5-5.5. The ring i have now won't be upgraded anymore since its perfect in size due to the accenting side stones. A bigger diamond would cover it up. Sorry i'm rambling.. anyways.. if you have pictures of your original set may i see? thanks everyone! congrads to all the lovely rings with rocks!
