Hello all! I got engaged last month and absolutely LOVE my ring (I helped pick it out about a year ago… lol, so of course it’s my dream ring).
My mom and all my family loves it, my two best friends love it, but other than that I feel like I’ve gotten weird reactions. Obviously everyone has different tastes, and my ring is unique, but I just wish I knew what they were thinking! They will ask to see it and then just look at it without much to say. Luckily I haven’t gotten any rude comments about it being too small/big as I’ve seen other bees have, but I’d almost rather know what it is they don’t like!! Do they not like the shape, or do they think it’s too small (it’s half a carat, I think it looks much bigger though with the swirl shape around it) or are they just jealous?!
Not that it matters at ALL, because truly I am SO in love with the ring (and even more so with fiance!) but I just don’t get it!

My first reaction to your ring was… DANG that is GORGEOUS! 🙂
People may be thrown back by the swirls? Who knows! Some people think an engagement ring must be a solitaire, a diamond & a certain size. But they don’t have to wear it you do & you love it so I wouldn’t worry about it! Its very lovely & congratulations on your engagement & dream ring!

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the ring. Maybe people just aren’t use to seeing unique rings? I don’t know. Sometimes people don’t know what to say when they see something that they have never seen before.
By the way. I think it’s a pretty ring. You love the ring. That’s all that really matters. How you feel about it.

I think your ring is beautiful, I don’t know why other people would be so silent. Yeah, they’re probably just jealous!!

Your ring is gorgeous, Im surprised you’ve been getting those reactions.. But try to not let it bother you, because people can be so rude and insensitive sometimes, and your the one that needs to love it!

I think it is stunning. And I have very good taste 😉
As long as you love it, who cares what others think 🙂

I think it is lovely, but to each their own I suppose. I think sometimes we women let our own issues and feelings get in the way of things like congratulating people on an amazing step in their lives.
Don’t let it get to you, its gorgeous. 🙂

Thank you all!! Again, I know all that matters is that I love it, but I think we women like to know that other people agree 🙂

Why would you want to hear negative commentary? I really doubt if it would make you feel better if someone actually said “Ehhh its okay” Everything isn’t for everybody it could just be style preferance. It’s not always jealousy. Be thankful that they aren’t being rude about it.

I cannot see why they would look so weirdly at such a beautiful ring, its seriously gorgeous. its so unusual too with the swirly shoulder design. i wonder if the look they are giving is more to do with they maybe are surprised at the design you chose? maybe they expected you to choose something different?
just to make sense of the above, i just want to say this right….an example is:
I bought my wedding dress and showed 2-3 of my friends, and while they thought it was beautiful, 2 of them were really surprised i would choose something like that…..they said they never thought i could like something like that. they couldnt imagine me in that dress. Nothing negative about the dress but just surprised i would choose it.
do you think this could be a similar situation?
OR it could be that their own ring has a diamond the size of a grain of sand and they are jealous. !

@bklynbridetobe:I didn’t want to hear negative commentary.. more just why they would not say anything. I know that sounds like the same thing, though. And of course just like to know I’m not the only one who likes it.

Wow! I opened your post and was shocked- your ring is very, very similar to mine! I get a lot of “Omg that’s so unique!” and people telling me they have never seen a ring like this before. I would bet this is how your friends/ family feel about it too and maybe just aren’t vocalizing it as easily. Although I am completely biased, I LOVE your/ our ring 🙂 haha

@kerri13: It’s beautiful! Very unique! Maybe it’s the shape that throws them off because it’s not “traditional?” I don’t know but it’s very pretty! Congratulations!
