I was going to ask if you would be able to wear that stunner of a ring while working but you probably don't wear any jewelry other than maybe a simple metal band while you're working?

My son-in-law's father's family is Indian and SIL outshines my DD in bling!

Ditto. Also large, square rings seem to be the fashion now.

I wear my engagement ring mostly for dress now such as when I go to the opera, a play, cocktail party. I am widowed but still wear my thin tri-colored gold wedding band everyday stacked with a couple of other thin band rings.

It's your ring so I wouldn't worry too much about what others think.

I echo what others have said....get what YOU want. The end of your post says you are, but the start is a bit of a contradiction. The middle ...errr......might be a sign of cultural/peer expectations? Or maybe not.

So if you do truly love it, the answer is simple, get it. Otherwise you have some serious thinking to do.

Citrine, I think it's a beautiful ring. If you both love it and can afford it, go for it! My only surprise is that it doesn't have a Citrine in it!

I can't wear any jewelry while working....I would leave imprints on people!
I am not in the know of what is the "norm" for engagement rings. I have no idea what kind of wedding to have....I thought I would be dead by 30! All this is very, very new for me.
I do think I was a crow in a past live...shiny, blingy things make me happy. If you were to see me in person, I just wear sweats/jeans/hoodies and when I work it is black polo and black pants with my hair up. I guess I am insecure in my taste with how I am in "real" life.....I hope I am making sense to someone!

To be honest, it seems a little over the top to me. But I probably no less about rings than anyone.
