do jews do it bigger?

I remember when one of my non-Jewish friends got engaged. She was so excited when she came to school the following Monday, all ready to tell her engagement story over and over, anxious to go dress shopping after class and really excited to show off her bling!

I looked down at her ring that she was so happy about.

I think there was a diamond.

It was that small.

But she was so happy!

That story wouldn't have worked with a Jewish maidel.

Just shows how vain Jews are. Shidduch crisis anyone?

When I saw the title I thought it was going to be about the tip of the goldberg...

This is such an obnoxious post! Maidel, I liked your stuff but this post makes it sound like all Jewish girls are JAPS. You sure seem to be one. My engagement ring, for the record, has a 1/3 carat stone. I'd have LOVED a big emerald cut honker, but we couldn't afford it. So catch a clue and learn that it's not the size of the ring that matters -- it's the man who's giving it to you. Something that your non-Jewish friend probably already knows.

i was just having this convo with someone the other day--- jews definitely do it bigger! average carat size for jews is 1-2 and for non jews its like .5

Forget Jews and None Jews. Its about where you hail from.

Americans prefer bigger diamonds for their money even if it means sacrificing color and clarity.

Europeans are all about color and clarity and dont mind smaller pieces.

You actually care about the size of the diamond and crap like that?

Don't generalize that every Jewish maidel is like that, maybe it's just in your area.

Moshe said...

I understand not caring too much about color, but clarity?! You mean there are people who'd buy a 1ct SI1 instead of .5ct VSI2?!
That's retarded.

No the question should be-
How clear is the diamon and how well cut is it.

Just because we do massive bling doesn't mean we do it well
