@Aquaria:  if it was a close friend I’d ask her what the deal was.  if it was just a casual acquaintance/someone random, I’d probably give her some side-eye but won’t say anything!

@Aquaria:  It would be mighty tempting, but I hope I would have the grace not to say anything to them. They must have big insecurities to lie about something like that and I hope I’d pity them, not get angry.

but… That doesn’t always happen, lol.

@Aquaria:  No. What business would it be of mine what they think of their ring or what they want others to think of their ring? It doesn’t affect my life at all.

The polite thing to do would not include rolling your eyes.

Depending on the person, I may, but probably not. I would likely only say something is the person was a pompous ass to begin with. Personally I don’t really know anyone who goes on and on about their ring regardless of it’s stats, so that in and of itself would get an eye roll from me. 

I also am not the best at telling stones apart, so the truth is I probably wouldn’t know one way or the other.

Probably not. I wouldnt trust myself to be able to actually tell if it was a fake. I mean, for example diamonds can end up looking vastly different based on the color, clarity, and the quality of a the cut. Just because it’s dull or lacks shine – I don’t think I could confidently tell.

@Aquaria:  Depends on the manner in which they were speaking. If they were bragging and acting like they were better than you because of their large fake stone I would say something. But if they were just showing off their new ring, excited about it I wouldn’t care.

Nope. I know quite a few people who would claim their diamond was a carat, instead is the half it looked like. It came from a place of not being knowledgable on the subject, not deceit. How rude would it be of me to be like, “umm actually! Miiiine is a 1.5, yours is maybe a half carat!”

Nope. I don’t care enough about other people’s property.

I think it completely depends on how well I know the person and whether or not they are trying to come across as superior because of their possessions, even when said possession is not what they say it is. Like MoonlitMagnolia said, I would hope to have the grace to let it slide by because there are obviously underlying security issues this person has.

@Aquaria:  def. not.  Theres a girl in my office who obviously had a moissy (its got WAY too much “fire” to be diamond, it almost glows with reds and blues) and her ring is GIGANTIC.  She frequently gets compliments on it  and comments about the cost and never says anything about it not being a diamond- whatever, it’s none of my business. While she hasnt ever explicitly said that it’s a diamond, I believe she’s trying to pass.  But really, who cares? If she likes it, good for her. Its none of anyone’s business.

Nope. I really don’t care enough to correct people on that. At least not publicly. If it were a good friend they might get an “Are you sure…” later on.

But I know at least one friend of mine who was insulted when someone guessed that her 0.6ct center stone was “about half a carat” so people can be weirdly sensitve about their rings- so I probably would just smile, nod and look the other way.
