10 Reasons Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better

10 Reasons Why Bigger Isn’t Always Better

According to media reports, Kim Kardashian received a 10-carat diamond ring for her engagement. Only ten carats, Kim? Most women wouldn't dare leave the house wearing less than 22.

Of course, unless you've got a few gazillion dollars lying around, it can be a bit tricky to keep up with the Kardashians. If your budget can't quite stretch to ten - or even two - carats, take comfort in these top ten disadvantages to wearing a big rock. And if that doesn't work, try ice cream (but not too much - think of the dress!)

  1. You're mistaken for an A-list celebrity and stalked by the paparazzi.
  2. You get ring fatigue: "Honey, I'm so tired, could you carry my ring for me?"
  3. You're blinded every time your ring catches the sun.
  4. You're inundated with lawsuits from passers-by you've accidentally assaulted hailing a cab.
  5. Your body starts sagging to the left when you walk.
  6. No one takes you seriously when you moan how the economic downturn has affected you.
  7. You're constantly plagued by magpies trying to steal your bling.
  8. Your betrothed says "it's only fair" when he buys a Harley Davison on his 40th birthday.
  9. Airline staff insist your ring counts as one item of hand-luggage.
  10. Your friends secretly hate you. Forever!
