    Why is Michelle’s ring surprisingly small. Didn’t you hear Michelle’s DNC speech about when they first started about them being “so in love and so broke”? Also, large rings are not always synonomys with tastefulness.

    It’s funny, I’m someone who’s always LOVED diamonds & gemstones, so it’s sometimes difficult for me to understand why someone who can afford a very large stone would opt for a smaller one, but hey, to each their own. It’s like for me, I really don’t care about weddings, like I can’t fathom spending more than maybe $100 or so (and even that’s pushing it!) on a dress I’d only wear once, & I can’t imagine spending thousands or more on the actual wedding (I’m more of a go to a courthouse kind of gal), so the way I see it is I guess that’s how some are about the ring. In all fairness though, some of these rings mentioned aren’t exactly small, I mean, 3 or 3.5 carats like some mentioned were are pretty sizable to most of us, though I guess compared to some of the huge 10+ carat ones some celebs wear they may seem small.
