Don’t you just hate people who can’t keep their nasty opinions to themselves? This was the first time in my two-ish month engagement that I’ve encountered this, so I was pretty taken back. This girl just wrote on my facebook saying that, had I waited to get engaged, FI probably would have gotten me a nicer/bigger ring.
So friggin rude! Yes, we are young. NO, that did not play a factor in the size of my ring. FI has been saving up for years to put this exact ring on my finger. I don’t like big diamonds, I don’t like halos (obviously I mean this for myself, it’s just not my style). My ring was not cheap, and it is not low quality.
If I wanted something else, FI would have gotten me something else. If I wanted FI to go into debt, he would have gone into debt. However, I don’t need a big ass ring or a brand name to prove that I am the luckiest girl in the world to be marrying my best friend of 6 years, and to have found him so early in life.
Sorry for the long rant, I’m just PISSED. Salt in the wound of an already terrible week 🙁

@SarahTee: What a turd! I would delete her comment off of my wall. To each their own. Some people just don’t seem to get that.
I get snobby looks when people ask me about my diamond and I tell them that it’s a moissy. It’s really infuriating. I don’t want to waste all of our money on a freaking rock. I happen to LIKE the way the moissy throws off so much color, and I happen to LIKE the pricetag!
Some people are rubbish.

@SarahTee: that’s really rude, but I wouldn’t let it bother you for another second – not worth it. Defriend her and move on.

I would tell her what you told us! Some people simply do not like huge diamonds! How rude of her!!

@LMD: RIGHT?! Like eff me for loving my ring, right? Should I have consulted you prior to accepting such an apparently crappy ring? Some people really do suck!
@MrsWBS: Done and done. I’m just dumbfounded at these dumb b***es.

@SarahTee: Wow, how rude and terrible of her to say that. She shouldn’t have said anything at all.
Just yesterday I went out to lunch with a friend and the older waitress said “that ring looks fake as hell, sweetie.” Yeah lady, next time you want a generous tip, try to be decent and not patronizing.

Tell her to go educate herself in diamonds and prices and get back to you on whether her boyfriend will buy her a big quality diamond 😉

@SarahTee: honestly women who feel this way are WAY too materialistic in my opinion…yes, you should love your ring. But having somethung that costs as much as a flipping car on your hand is just silly.
Keep your head up, people like that dont even deserve a second thought.

That is super rude, to be honest you get comments no matter what the size of your ring is. I had a friend make the most disgusted face when I told her my ring was 1.5ct. Like it was too small, I really don’t think it’s small at all…and I’ve had others say things that are total backhanded compliments b/c they think my ring is huge. I think people are just jealous no matter what your ring looks like. All those single ladies out there just want one on their fingers too!

@SarahTee: That comment was so pathetic it’s not even worth getting mad over. If anything you should be laughing at her stupidity.

My own mom and dad said to my FI you should upgrade it in 5 years after she becomes a dentist as it will make her look bad. So much pressure! And rude but they like to show off and by then I would buy my own ring or upgrade if I wanted it.

@LMD: I have had some people with that attitude but I find most people really like it. But I love talking about SiC and its properties etc.
OP, ignore her. Haters gonna hate, as the famous adage goes.

@SarahTee: Just a shot in the dark but is there any chance she isn’t engaged? Lol cause that comment sounds like TOTAL jealousy.
I don’t know why people feel the need to comment on the size or style of someone’s ring especially if it’s negative. Someday she may get engaged and she’ll probably be one of the people on here complaining that it isn’t big enough when it is beautiful.

@SarahTee: I would tell her, hey, at least I have a ring, wheres yours?
