Just say “Thanks!  It was handed down, I feel really lucky.”  You come off as gracious and grateful.

Sometimes I think people don’t realize they’re crossing a line. They’re curious and if they’re single, they’re probably just excited. Maybe just say, “It’s a family heirloom and a lot to get used to but I love it.”

Yeah, I think my response would be something like “Thanks – it’s a family heirloom.”

My friend was proposed to with a 3ct solitare which had been in her fiance’s family.  I know she feels the same way that you do–she doesn’t like much attention to her ring because in reality her and her husband are pretty broke.  A lot of people just ask her if it’s fake.  I would be so irritated if I were in that situation!  She usually just wears her wedding band instead (she’s now married)…

Just say, “thanks, i love it, too!”

My mom said you should NEVER be ashamed of having too many diamonds, haha. I got a lot of that with mine, too, “holy crap it’s so big! i can’t believe it” but in reality, it’s a very intricate setting and it’s kinda busy! So i can see where you’re coming from.

If you’re anything like me, people gushing over you probably makes you uncomfortable. You’ll learn to embrace it…now i just say something like, “yeah, he did a good job” or mention how much I love it.

No sense being ashamed or awkward about it, just EMBRACE THE BLING!

As far as the proposal, I usually say something like, ‘oh he took me to a park’. I don’t really delve into mushy crap in real life too much, haha.

I haven’t been proposed to just yet, so I can’t add much there.  I just wanted to add that there is no need to apologize to venting to us “bees.”  That is what we are here for 🙂
