Just let it slide off your back! My fave quote is this one regarding your chunka hunka blingy love on your left ring finger:
“A gem is just a rock that did really great under pressure”.
That’s all they are after all! A nice, piece of world history! And a symbol of love.
Princess Diana had a gorgeous sapphire, which now graces the finger of the soon to be Princess Kate.
Some women have diamonds in all colors on their ring hands. Yellow, white, blue, green, black and red. I may have even skipped a color!
And there are gemstones as bright and beautiful as a rainbow! I love pink topaz, pink sapphire, orange sapphires, blue topaz, and mamu others.
What is important is that your ring makes YOU and your Fiance happy!
Fwiw, I am a gal who has a large 3 stone diamond e ring and a band of diamonds all the way around. I actually HAD some insensitive people tell me that “your e ring is almost too big” and “wow, what does your H do to buy that ring?” and I had another ask me “are those diamonds? Almost too big”.
And then there was somebody else who said to a person who knew me “they couldn’t be good diamonds to be that big.”
You will always get at some point an insensitive comment from a naysayer. You just will at some point during your wedding planning and even after. Maybe they’re jealous you’re so happy or maybe they wish they could get a new ring. Who the heck knows. All I know is…
I love my husband, I love the rings he bought me and I love rocking a killer mani to show those rings off!
It’s not the size or type of stone, but the amount of love and size of the love GIVEN behind the ring that counts!
