So your ring definitely isn’t my style, but I can still admire it, it is beautiful! It looks gorgeous on you! And it’s never cool of others to diss anyone’s ring. Ever.

adriannamonet :  

Your ring is truly dazzling, I love it!  It does look lovely on you.

Imagine the wretched, unhappy little lives some people are suffering through; to feel compelled to make snark over someone else’s great good fortune.  Pity.

Though I wouldn’t personally choose your ring as my engagement ring I think it’s absolutely gorgeous and would love a ring like that to wear when I dress up. It’s beautiful! I think it’s just a little different. If you adore it I woulnd’t worry too much about people’s comments!

Your ring is gorgeous.  The comments I get are mine are “too plain”.  That there’s nothing unique about them, they look “dated” due to the tellow gold, etc.  I think mine are timeless and classic…which is exactly what I wanted.

I don’t get weird reactions to my ring so much (although actually I probably do, they just don’t register with me as negative because I really don’t care and actually quite enjoy confusing people – it’s asscher cut which most people haven’t seen before in my crowds) HOWEVER whenever people compliment it I just cannot help myself but to say, “Thanks, I designed it myself!” and THAT ilicits some very strange reactions. Where I am it is the total norm for rings to be picked and paid for by the guy and for it all to be a surprise. So people are generally perpexled/unimpressed that every single part of my ring and propsal process (including paying for it) was a joint thing between us. People love to be judgey, I say let em!

Your ring is stunning! I considered Heidi Gibson but decided I needed something simpler in the end. However Swarovski currently have some very HG-esque jewellery at the moment including a ring and stud earrings that I’m considering treating myself to!

When I first got my ring I got nothing but compliments. After having it a few months I have now started to get reactions from people insinuating or flat out saying they think it’s “fake” which. Is just so damn rude I can’t believe people actually do this.

I was on the subway recently and this woman sitting beside me goes “Oh! That’s a cool ring! Where did you get it?” I looked at her startled for a hot second cause – I mean – it’s on my left hand ring ring and looks very obviously like an engagement ring. But I said “Uh, I’m not sure, it was a gift.” and she gave me the dirtiest look and goes “Ok girl…”, lol.

My future mother in law said it was fine that we chose a sapphire because we would “obviously upgrade it” later. I think it broke my fiancé’s heart a little bit. 

But everyone has their own style. Brush off the negativity as best you can. That ring is gorgeous anyway!
