kinkycurlyme :  well I’m curious (tacky) now… pic! Just tell people you’re not sure. “I didn’t ask. I just know it’s from him and it’s beautiful.” If it’s huge and your income doesn’t “support” a larger diamond it’s probably a moissy. Which I bet is gorgeous.

 The first two comments aren’t questions they actually want answers to. The last two questions are rude and instrusive. Maybe the carats one is okay, but just say “I don’t know” because you honeslty don’t know. Only one person asked about carat size and that was my friend who looked at rings with me so she was just curious what we had decided on. No one has asked me how much it cost. That’s really weird.

I have a decent sized diamond (1.75 carats) and a tiny finger so it looks even bigger. Some idiot man at my office said “WHOA! Is that thing even real!?” Every other woman in the room gave him this death glare when he said that. 

 

 

And and no I don’t feel guilty. I got what I wanted and what was in FI’s budget. Why feel guilty?

I’d say my ring is sizeable but I love it and don’t feel guilty. I know DH bought it for me to enjoy it and paid cash within his means etc etc 

nobody has been so rude to ask me about price. Have people actually asked you this?!

The ‘worst’ comment I’ve had a couple of times is “ooh he must love you a lot” – but that’s hard to take offence as I imagine they mean well.

I suppose in your case you might want to determine what your stone is so you can deal with that accordingly.

If it’s a sim then I think you’re dealing with the ‘mind clean’ issue that crops up on these threads at times. If so moissy wearers can help you out I’m sure.

Seriously, who are the people asking these questions??? One slightly nosey comment I would understand but so people really ask how much it cost? So rude.

I’ve never been asked anything about my ring by anyone.

But then again, my first ring was a cluster and my second is a sapphire so maybe thats why.

kinkycurlyme :  Question – do you know what kind of stone it is? I dont think mine is that big but some people do. Its a GIA certified diamond. Its over 2ct and with the sidestones over 2.5ct. Just tell people the truth when you find out. I tell people the grading the color the table facets, the girdle with. I love talking jewelry. maybe they want to copy me and buy the same one. what do I care? the cost is a little harder to discuss without sounding obnoxious. Mine is over 100 years old so I say hey I dont know its antique yada yada. if its a moissinate, just tell them the truth if you know. Those are cheap right? Maybe they would be impressed that you got something nice for cheap.

I don’t know how people have the nerve to come out and ask these questions. I’ve never had that. Most people who look at my ring just look or they will say it’s beautiful but I never get the nosey questions like how much did it cost or what did I have to do to get it. I think people need to learn to keep their opinions to themselves too when they’re referring to someone’s ring.  You can always just say, “I don’t know all the details” or just answer with what you do know if you feel like it.

Youre getting married, and youre worried about offending him over asking a question about your ring? Um ok.

If that is a real answer, I’d probably just ask and relate it to insurance. If its a diamond you should get it insured, and you’d need the pertinent information to do so. If its not, well thats your answer.
