Dont listen to her – get what ring is going to make you happy, not what is going to make everyone else happy! I think 1.5 carat rings are beautiful and I am sure it will look amazing on your hand 🙂

I have a sapphire center stone with a diamond halo. I have had many people ask me “Did you want a sapphire more than a diamond?” or “Are you going to upgrade later on?” The comments bothered me in the beginning but I have learned to just brush it off because at the end of the day my ring symbolizes my fiance and I’s love for each other and really has nothing to do with anyone else! 🙂

Maybe she thinks the money could be better spent elsewhere.

Don’t worry about it. If she finds it a waste of money or is jealous, that’s on her, not you. Honestly, I don’t know if anyone has thrown any insults about my ring around. I’m thinking they see how absolutely perfect it is for me and how much it means to me.

@cls9q:  Yep she is definately just jealous. 1.5 carats is NOT too big and over the top (I have 1.23 and I love it). And no…no one has ever insulted my e-ring to my face. Especially not family or friends. So rude.

Just let her talk smack, being angry over it won’t solve anything.

Eventually she’ll get over it.

I had a “friend” look at my ring and say, “it doesn’t look nearly as yellow as it did in the picture you sent me.” Yeah, some people suck.

Yeah I would tell her that you appreciate her opinion but that it’s none of her business what kind of engagement ring you get, and you would appreciate her not bringing it up again. sheesh, she sounds crabby. 

No one has said anything really negative about my ring, to my face at least!

@cls9q:  It’s tough when a friend says something negative about something as personal as an ering. But the good thing is, you and FI are the only ones who have to like it. And I hope you do!

@cls9q:  That is DEFINITELY jealousy talking. I don’t think friends should express anything but happiness, despite any internal thoughts/reservations they may have about your ring or carat size. 

Good for you girl, your ring will be so awesome.

How can she make that judgment without having seen it? She sounds jealous.

the bigger question is why aee you blabbing or your frienda about an “intended” ring? Why tell her specs at all? To me that INVITES unwanted commentary. If you just showed up engaged and happy she wouldn’t dare say anything negative.
