I always get – wow its huge! And its not huge by wedding bee standards. a little over 1 carat center (and not quite another half carat in setting). But in my neck of the woods its pretty substantial

I get “WOW! What does your husband do, again?!” a LOT.

Especially when I worked in childcare! (I made 22K a year working FT, so the Moms at the center were NOT used to seeing the employees with nice rings!)

I’ve gotten:

Your ring is SO sparkly! (Lol I think this was in an elevator.)

It’s so unusual! (From my aunt who had never seen a halo setting.)

That’s my dream ring! (This was my favorite ever, haha!)

“Is that vintage?”, “it’s so you” (haha not sure what that means), “he did good!”

“He did a good job picking it out”

I get:

“Why didn’t you get a diamond?”   “Aren’t engagement rings supposed to have a diamond/stone?”

“Are you getting another one/nicer one/more expensive one later?”

“That’s….modern.”  “It’s….nice.”  “It’s….different.”

I have a ring with no stones… I can’t recall getting any real compliments on it.  I think it’s just because people are used to engagement being stereotypically “blingy” and that’s not something we could afford.  BUT – I looooove my ring.  And my FI more.  So I just ignore most of the ignorant comments.

From women – “Your ring is so beautiful/unique” and “Where’d you get it from/is it custom made?”

From men – “What does your husband do?”, “I like that it’s square on the bottom” (when I take it off to let guy friends or coworkers see it I get this a LOT), ” What are those? Diamonds around the center?” (the halo part has yellow diamonds)

I get “it’s beautiful/gorgeous/sparkly/pretty/huge” and some people are curious and say “it’s yellow” (it’s a yellow diamond lol).

I get a lot of “it’s so different, i’ve never seen anything like it before” because it’s a kite set square halo with a kite set princess center and the band is split shank. I also get a lot of “it’s so big” even though to me I don’t think it is…center is 1/2 carat & total is 1.45 carats.

In “real life” I’ve gotten an “I like it!”, an “That’s interesting” and a “You know you could have gotten her something smaller!” (directed towards my DH) and a “Its beautiful” and I have been asked alot “Was it custom?” Lol I know it’s not everyones cup of tea, but I love it 🙂

of course on WB I’ve gotten much nicer comments 😉
