Yes, we're happy you're engaged (we love weddings!) but these rings don't prove that you're in love, they simply show the world you've got bucks to burn. Case in point: Kim Kardashian. She sported a massive 20.5 carat rock from Kris Humphries, and we all know how that marriage turned out. What we're saying is simple: the size of your ring doesn't correlate with the strength of your love. If you're happy with your giant bauble, great. But a smaller stone doesn't mean your marriage is doomed to fail.
