Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by spikedcylinder: 2:01pm On Jul 12, 2006
Why are women always crazy about having huge rocks on their engagement ring finger?I mean its nice to have a gold,silver or diamond band that will not fade and will not wear as the years go by but whats the huge fascination and to die for attitude concerning 18k,24k(and above)precious stones dangling from their fingers?
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by retro(f): 2:05pm On Jul 12, 2006
If I ever wanted to get married, I wouldn't want huge rocks. I want something simple. Marriage isn't about the ring.
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by spikedcylinder: 2:14pm On Jul 12, 2006
Well to some people,it is.Some ladies would not engage a guy just because the diamond on the engagement ring is too small.

What prompted this question was that i was reading a Modupe Ozolua interview in Ovation West Africa and I noticed the way she went on and on about her dream engagement ring being the size of her fist!And I'm like,whats the deal?
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by retro(f): 2:16pm On Jul 12, 2006
Well, when they get divorced, they could sell the ring and get money!

I don't like it one bit! I admire it so much on people if it fits well.

The rule as they say is: A man must spend the whole of his 2 months salary on an engagement ring.

As for me, Rock or no rock, it should be the one that won't fade (I love bling bling, but for an engagement ring, it's not a must -- although don't get me wrong now, if my man wants to but the big rocks [ice as i'll call them], shuuu he can be my guest!). I'll collect the iced out ring, and buy me a small one. lol, SHow my friends n family the real one. But wear the fake one when im going to some normal place. Too much rocks on ur fingers attract thieves. wink

A rock would be kool on my ring,

But not too large though, don't want 'omila' following you about o! wink
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by iice(f): 9:29pm On Jul 18, 2006
Yeah i want a rock but not necessarily an engagement ring lol
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by Eurphoria(f): 9:09pm On Jul 19, 2006
I wont do diamonds for the principle of it all. I got an eye opener years back on where alot of these rocks come from and i won't be part of it(they tell you they are hall marked but i read alot of the diamond merchants are unscrupulous in their trade). Not unless, my husband to be went and found the rock from a quarry himself, i wont have blood on my fingers.

Who ever i am with will know and would have to come up with something creative with a jeweler instead, its even better my ring would be bespoke and unique.
Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by desiree(f): 2:48am On Jul 22, 2006
Yeah, why not---the bigger the rock the more he loves me wink grin and the more love he gets from me wink

And it has to be all legal cool

Re: Large Rocks On Engagement Rings? by spikedcylinder: 7:00am On Jul 31, 2007
I think i prefer those embedded rings rather than this protruding design. They are cheaper, unique and better looking. smiley
