Yep, I get all blushy and shy when patients ask to see my ring. I really need to stop wearing it to work.

@classical_wolf:  I don’t have a huge center stone, but the ring itself is big, and since I sport an emerald cut, which is not the most popular shape out there, I do get compliments….I just say thank you and carry on.

I get suuuper awkward when random customers at work ask about my ring. It’s not big or flashy at all, but really sparkles under retail lights. I have no idea why I get so flustered!

@classical_wolf:  Haha it’s more so they don’t ask me questions about my personal life. I have to spend 12 hours with them, often times for several nights in a row so I can’t be “rude” as say I don’t want to talk about my personal life. I’m not one of those brides who is always talking about her wedding and I don’t really like to be the center of attention. I work in an area populated by geriatrics and drug addicts for the most part, so I am either getting the old women wanting to know every detail about my wedding (I’ve even gotten asked where and what time the wedding is at… I often lie at this part) or weirdo shady characters. I won’t stop wearing my ring, but it’s often tempting to just get to escape the wedding world and just focus on my patients and less on me!

I’ve gotten lots of compliments, but not because “it’s big rock” (but it does have a beautiful, good size, high quality diamond).. I had a well-known modernist designer design and create my ring (their work is featured in many books and in museums) so it’s not your typical design. 

The compliment that impressed me the most came from my wedding photographer. She is nationally known and travels all over the US to do wedding & engagement shoots (l lucked out she lives near me) – so she sees LOTS of erings and some mighty huge diamonds. 

Anyway she gushed over my ring, she thought it was gorgeous, awesome, incredible, etc… At the time I thought well she has to say nice things to her client. But after our wedding she posted a preview to her FB and blog and posted a huge photo of my ring with the comment, “this the most incredibly awesome engagement ring I have ever seen” and other nice things. So to say that publicly, in fact posting it so all her former & current clients plus friends saw it and read her comments, made me realize she was quite geniune with her compliments. 

That said people either absolutely freak out over my ring or do the “thats interesting/unique” thing, lol. I collect jewelry from certain designers (most of whom have died) and I’m very picky and know exactly what I like. (I’m a design nut) So the fact I still look at my ering and think its the best rihave ever seen, much less own, is all that really matters – but I still can’t believe how thrilled with it I am. (I was even asked to allow it to be published in a magazine about the designers current work, but refused because I know it would be copied by at least a few ppl and I just love having something so beautiful that I absolutely know is 1 of a kind as my e-ring.) Also my fiancé is immensely proud of how much I love it. He contacted the designer for me, but then I gave my input – he then sourced the diamond himself. It is, by far, my most precious and beloved possession.

@classical_wolf: you show me yours & I show you mine? Haha.

Lol, I’ve never posted a photo of it outside of my FB which is locked down tight.(& it appeared on the photographers FB /blog Too I guess, so that’s pretty public) I  would love to share it with others who like modern design, so maybe I could host it on a site temporarily (just don’t want google to cache it).

@classical_wolf:  I get shy when people comment on my ring too! My ring is 1.51, not so different from yours and I think is a great size. I don’t think it’s too big or too sparkly but as soon as someone else says something about it i get super bashful, even when I know it’s a genuine compliment, I have no idea why!!

A young (5yo) daughter of an acquaintance noticed my ring over dinner a few weeks ago and said, “is that an engagement ring?  It’s sooooo sparkly!” and all I could do was say thank you, blush, and put my head down. Like, can we go back to talking about My Little Pony now? Because I would feel way more comfortable with that. LOL…..

I usually rock a plain WG band to work to not seem flashy. It just doesnt feel right in my field.
