Size Does Matter…

Big doings last weekend in Palm Beach.

Victoria and David Beckham’s son, Brooklyn, married actress and billionaire’s daughter, Nicola Peltz, at the Peltz family $100 million dollar oceanfront estate.

The wedding purportedly cost $4 million dollars.

To demonstrate her love of the finest things, the newly wed 27-year-old is sporting a glamorous new accessory on her ring finger.

Not even a week after becoming Mrs. the billionaire’s daughter has allegedly upgraded her engagement ring because size does matter.

This brings me to the proposal tradition.

Even though women have come a very long way in regards to equal rights and job equality the man, in most cases, decides if and when they will have a future.

He often selects the ring even though she is going to wear it.

Since men are often in need of retail support why not have the bride-to-be go along on the buying trip?

It is hard to believe that many engagement rings resonate.

I eventually went bigger not better because at birth my grandmother declared that anything under 4 carats was a waste. I felt compelled to honor her edict😎

My finger, my marriage, my hard earned money, my choice.

Interesting that Nicola Peltz Beckham’s mother-in-law is purportedly the owner of 14 engagement rings.

David Beckham originally proposed to his wife of 18 years with an exquisite marquise cut $85,000 diamond ring.

Victoria Beckham has accumulated 13 additional rings to accessorize her left hand with most of which she purchased herself.

Jennifer Lopez just accepted a $10.5 million engagement ring from Ben Affleck. She must have a safe full of broken engagement sparkly  mementos.

Kanye West popped the question in 2013, presenting Kim Kardashian with a 15-carat cushion-cut diamond by Lorraine Schwartz worth an estimated $2 million.

Elizabeth Taylor’s 33-carat ring from Richard Burton sold at auction for $8.8 million.

George Clooney presented Amal with a 7-carat emerald-cut sparkler worth $750,000.

Serena Williams scored when then fiancé Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, gifted her with a 12-carat ring estimated to be worth $2 million.

I am definitely conflicted about peeps spending so much money on a ring, but it isn’t my money.

Nowadays, posting photos of engagement rings on social media is risky business, especially in Los Angeles where presently 14 different gangs are targeting residents who are sporting high end jewelry, driving expensive cars and carrying designer bags.

They are followed home from restaurants and clubs, robbed, often pistol whipped and/or punched in the face.

Another sad state of affairs.

Anyway, to each his or her own because diamonds are forever…not so much marriages.
