Tiny Wedding Ring

jylart38 2 years ago Wedding: October 2015 I don’t think you should feel left out at all just because you’re not wearing a big diamond. I’ll bet your fiancee put just as much love in choosing that ring for you as the others who chose a big diamond ring. To me, that’s what counts the most. My ring is a total of 1/4 carat and came from Walmart and I can honestly say I love my smaller ring more than any of those big diamonds from Tiffany’s and wouldn’t trade it if I had the choice. I have very small hands and fingers so a big diamond would look ridiculous on me. Also, I’ve never been a big diamond type of girl. My fiancee got it just right.

Bored6: I have super tiny hands, my ring is Uk size J (which I think is US size 4 3/4). My ring has a beautiful little 0.33 carat diamond. Smaller stones are more of the norm over here, but remember it’s about what the ring represents, not hte size or type of stone.

“My husband told me to pick out the ring. He proposed without one while we were sitting on his couch less than a year into our relationship. I said, ‘yes!’ He took me to stores, and the people tried to get us to get huge ones, but I don’t like huge jewelry. I picked the engagement ring out and the lady said, ‘That’s a promise ring, you don’t want that.’ I said, ‘He’s promising his life and love to me. I love the promise ring.’ I love it!” — Bonnie Long

Many of us already know that the modern engagement ring was an invention of the diamond industry. (I know, shocking right?!) And even more of us know that engagement rings don’t have to look like what Tiffany’s is trying to sell us. But as we’ve discussed before, knowing the history of wedding traditions doesn’t automatically mean you can extricate yourself emotionally from wanting those traditions for yourself. So while you can absolutely get engaged without a diamond, or mutually propose to each other, or propose to your male partner, or get engaged without a ring at all, I also won’t begrudge anyone wanting a traditional diamond engagement ring with a traditional proposal. I had both, myself.

For Pedersen, that “tiny” ring held extra-special meaning: She and her husband, Poul Pedersen, eloped 13 days after meeting in October 2013. Receiving any ring at all had been a happy surprise.

“When Lee and I first got engaged I didn’t even have a ring, I was just happy to call him my fiancé. It took me seven months to get this after our official engagement. My ring is a symbol of us, our love, our longevity, our bond, our souls and we don’t need a huge diamond to symbolize that. Plus, we like to live within our means and let’s be honest — a $5,000 ring isn’t really within our means right now.” — Richelle Smith

That said, if there’s one engagement-related myth I’d really like to debunk (you know, after all the gendered stuff and the “it has to be a surprise” stuff), it’s the idea that there’s any correlation between how much you and your partner love each other, and the size of your engagement ring. Partly because big stones simply aren’t practical for a lot of reasons, but also because there are too many super hot diamond engagement rings in the sub-carat category to be ignored. So today I’ve rounded up fifty of my favorite diamond engagement rings that prove size really doesn’t matter. Maybe we can reverse some of this long held industry marketing and make tiny stones the next cool thing.

Tiny diamonds are the best!!! I get so many compliments on my ring. It’s 5 little stones in a wavy pattern. It’s compact, it’s modern, and it’s pretty.

Yay for small stones! I have a small stone engagement ring, but it’s more about the cut out scroll design on the ring. It was made for me and I love it. Though I have had some awkward looks from people when they’ve seen how small (and not a diamond) the stone is… screw them, I picked this myself!

This week, Pedersen’s Facebook post in defense of her “small” engagement ring went viral. After the digital marketing specialist eloped in 2013, well-meaning friends and family made rude comments about the size of her ring, asking her when she plans to “upgrade it” and suggesting she wear a different one to professional events “so people don’t think  not successful.”

“Wait a minute. Since when did the size of someone’s ring become an indication of success. For me, the ring is SO much more,” Pedersen wrote on Facebook.

“I have been wearing this ring for 26 years. It’s not the value of this ring that matters to me, it’s what it represents. A marriage that lasts because of true commitment, loyalty and honor to one man through the struggles of life, learning and growing old together.” –Mel Ags

“My beautiful ring was $350 and all we could afford. My husband worked numerous side jobs just to be able to buy me this. He has bought me beautiful jewelry since, including very sparkly rings with lots of diamonds, to replace this one. And although I do wear them, I just cannot bring myself to replace this one! They are all worn on different fingers at different times. But these two never come off. These were bought with his heart. And no ring could replace that! Love my little diamond!” — Suzanne Downs Redding

“The reason I love this ring isn’t about the ring itself, but the proposal. Which to me, was so much more important. He knew I was a nature lover so he took me to the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders, and told me no matter how beautiful any landscape is, I’ll always be his very own wonder.” — Audrey Boyer

“Almost 28 years ago, a 17-year-old boy sold his prized comic book collection and stepped into a jewelry store with his neighbor. His neighbor knew the store owner and got this boy a wonderful deal on a ring set for his soon-to-be bride. Yes, it’s not a big diamond but I don’t care. The size doesn’t prove the love. I am in love with this ring as much today as I was back then.” — Kristine Bauer Torrice

It was an offhand comment from a friend who meant no harm. But the more Rachel Pedersen thought about it, the more troubled she felt. Since when had her wedding ring, a token of lifelong commitment and gift from the love of her life, become a status symbol? And how many other women were feeling self-conscious about rocks that were less than Rockefeller?
