It seems only big diamonds are a girl's best friend, after a man's marriage proposal failed when his girlfriend turned him down because the sparkler was too small.
A man got down on one knee while hired dancers performed in front of his beloved in an elaborate display.
And despite the woman initially seen overcome by the performance on a street in Chengdu, the capital city of south-west China's Sichuan province, he opens the ring for her to see, and she is less than impressed.
A screenshot of a WeChat conversation allegedly between her and a friend was later leaked online and the girlfriend says: "But he agreed to buy me a diamond ring as large as one carat. Why was this one so small? Is he so careless or has he ever cared about me?"
