I find myself staring at my ring constantly. I know in the grand scheme of things (it's new, this is the biggest diamond I've ever gotten, it's an engagement ring, etc), but when does it become an unhealthy obsession?

How long did it take before you stopped obsessively staring at your diamond (ring, earrings, pendant, whatever!)? :twirl:

:bigsmile: and my stone looks even prettier without my glasses or contacts, so you know it won't lose its appeal as your vision starts to fail ;))

Sheherizaad....I think jewelry and diamond lovers will always enjoy their jewelry! Just don't be doing all that staring while driving, ok?!!! :-o

My obsession has not stopped yet - it's been over 26 years! When my DH tells me that he's going to Home Depot, I'm in the car before him!

I especially love to stare at my diamond in the car, and even more at the gym. There are many days that catching the glimmer from
my rings is what gets me through the long workout!

I hope it never ends!

There's a new Tiffany in the by my house (which happens to be a two-minute drive away) so I went in today to have some fun trying on celebration rings. Well, the stacking rings were nice and everything but I just kept on staring at MY diamond! It was pretty pathetic, but they DO have wonderful lighting in there so it was looking especially delicious. :lickout:

The saleslady told me that they don't use much rose gold because white gold shows off the stones so much better, and then she asked if my stone was a D or E because it was so sparkly. :-o I thought they were better educated in there. (My stone is an O/P!)

I don't know ladies... its pretty bad.

I've tripped over dogs and children while staring.
I stare at it and giggle like a little schoolgirl randomly.
I've hit doors while staring at it.
I clean it every night.
Ive stopped seeing other jewelry (I no longer wear a RHR).
I take random pictures of it just because...
I stare at the pictures and compare them to the ring.
And at night when I go to sleep, I use the "flashlight" feature on my phone and point it at my ring to watch the scintillation!!

I think I need help!! Lol

I think we have an obsession! I stare all the time and my husband will catch me doing it and say "yes, it still looks good" in whatever situation I may be staring at it in.

My engagement ring, and later, my anniversary ring, are items I found myself gazing upon many, many times a day. My husband was telling me something once and he reached over and covered my right hand with his and said "Okay, now I've broken the spell" and went back to telling me what he was saying, lol.

Almost 21 years this Sept and I am still enamored of the rings and the man who gave them to me. :)

Love that! I just recently started putting on a RHR again. For a while, I was a one ring kind of gal. :D

My SO mentioned that he enjoys watching me stare at my ring all day because then he *knows* that I am really happy. I didn't even realize how much I do it until he pointed it out.

Your ring is BEYOND gorgeous. I don't blame you a bit. Congrats again!

If you get a laser-pointer, you get multi-colored scintillation of astonishing brightness.

Not that I've, uh, done that. Or anything.

Well, in my case I can't wait to HAVE that obsession! Hopefully will be buying our diamond in the next few months now that I've graduated from grad school and will start work next month. It will give me something to stare at on the train and on rounds and hanging out at home and in bed and and and.... :)

So um... what you guys are really saying is that it will never stop? And that it shouldn't stop? :naughty:

Oh well. I tried to seek help but I may as well just accept it will always be a part of our natures... :praise:

I originally thought that once I got my ring I would stop posting on this forum, but I have to say that this is like the most supportive forum EVER and I keep finding myself coming back. It's sincerely heartwarming to find people who consistently take time out of their day to help others save money, time and not only avoid misfortune! but help spread joy! :appl:

We should just call Pricescope "Diamonds Anonymous"... :D
