I fell in love with a diamond yesterday - and have a question for all the 5 plus people. Do you get used to wearing all that sparkle? This is an 8 carat cushion - and it may be perfection for me. A large work accomplishment would allow me to get it - but I am afraid I would be too sheepish/afraid to ever wear it. Thoughts?

It's gorgeous on you! I have no where near 8cts, but if I could afford it, I definitely would wear it....with insurance of course.

I'd strongly suggest spending more time looking and trying on different shapes and weights of diamonds before making such a critical decision. I've seen emerald cuts that large that are gorgeous (the one below is over 9 cts) and a member here has a 5 ct antique cushion that is amazing. There are many good options but you may find one you even like better! So take your time and get a great cut stone that you love!

I love the idea of celebrating a work accomplishment with jewelry (congratulations!). I think you should be fine as long as you’re mindful of your surroundings and you insure the ring. You carry it off beautifully :)

HI:

I'd love to know how many of these rings are still in the owners possession. Mine has been gone for sometime.

cheers--Sharon

You sold your diamond?!!!

Yes, I saw the antique cluster and committed to it instantly (before even talking to my husband about it). I offered to sell the solitaire to cover it. The cluster cost a bit less than half of what I got for the solitaire. I really have developed a love of old cuts, and I got tired of the modern one. So there is an OEC in my near future (it’s on layaway and I’m raising funds).

That's very exciting! Your cluster is very pretty, too!
