I’ve had my beauty for almost 6 months now. The reactions have been mainly positive and all the jewlers we’ve seen as we search for a wedding band have commented on how gorgeous it is. However, those negative reactions do get to you. Whether it’s blank stares or people just not thinking its an engagement ring at all. I’ve even had someone imply it looks like costume jewlery because it’s ‘too big’. I think she was just confused by the setting and my finger size because my center stone is .62 carats and not overly huge or anything. This is a beautiful time for me and FH, but we weren’t expecting so much judgement for our ring choice. Anyone else have weird remarks towards your ring? Being a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, it’s been a little hard when people you know and love say something rude. I love my ring so much! Anyway, here she is:

I just wanted to quick comment on the ring itself. I’m not usually a fan at all of the “Heidi Gibsonesque” type ring but I think yours is seriously gorgeous! That’s probably the first one I’ve seen that I truly like. Don’t let others take away from the beauty you feel 🤗

For what it’s worth, I love your ring. People will always have something to say. You will get a mix of good and bad. I myself have recieved both. One lady said my ring was guady. I personally hate that word, but I didn’t let her get to me. The way I see it SHE’S not the one wearing it and she didn’t pay for it. So I think to myself ( mind your business and move on.) We can’t please everyone. So keep loving your beautiful ring and enjoy wearing it with pride. Let the negative remarks go in one ear and out the other.

First off your ring is beautiful!
my husband’s grandmother upon seeing my ring after we got engaged went “oh it’s much nicer on you than in the box. I thought he’d gotten a real dud”
I also had a student’s parent come up and ask to see it and then go “my my my, we don’t get all get one of those. You must have trained him well”
my ring is like a .5 center stone and pretty modest…. people say weird things! The good thing is after a few months no one really notices or cares anymore

Your ring is gorgeous! I’ve had my fair share of blank stares with my ring because it is a bezel and just not seen where I am from. You just gotta shake it off and enjoy your pretty for them.

I have a hard time shutting out other peoples comments so I get it. I can’t recall any outright strange comments about my ring but I don’t really recall any gushing type comments either.
For what it’s worth, I think your ring is stunning. My husband’s grandma has a similar one and I’ve also had a secret hope that it will get passed down to us (there are no grand daughters and he is the oldest grandson so a girl can dream lol).

Your ring is gorgeous. Don’t let the weirdos get you down.
Engagement rings trigger people’s social status issues. That’s ok, it just happens. Don’t sweat it. Just wear that beautiful ring with pride and all the love it was presented with and eff the rest.
Also, your nails are BEYOND <3

Your ring is so pretty!!!
I mostly get good feedback on my ring and how unique it is, but I had a cousin once tell me “Wow, that’s…. interesting….” screw her though, lol. I love my ring!

Your ring is absolutely gorgeous!
I have an antique ruby ring. I know it’s not the typical choice and I expected some comments to be made, but I never expected people to be mean about it. One woman told me that my husband was cheap for not buying me a diamond. I was crushed when she told me that. It can be hard to ignore negative comments especially when it is about something as special as an engagement ring. However, don’t let the negativity and jealousy of others ruin this exciting time. Stay positive and enjoy the wedding planning experience.

For what it’s worth I think your ring looks gorgeous on you. It’s the prettiest Heidi Gibson style/combo I’ve ever seen. The rose gold is gorgeous on your skin tone. Dont let how others feel or what they say steal your joy.

Thank you so much everyone for your kindness. My ring is Heidi Gibson’s Cambria design and it truly is my most treasured possession. You are all right. It’s hard to block out the negativity because I would never tell someone I don’t like their ring or anything like that. Engagement rings are like social status for many and so therefore will warrant a lot of judgment. We just didn’t realize it until we got engaged and were in it. It’s been a whirlwind!

Your ring is stunning! I hate when people imply that men need to be ‘trained’ or whatever. I always think, “Or maybe he’s just a kind person who loves me?” 😅
