So my husband got me a 2.25 carat asscher cut diamond ring with six stones going down both sides of the delicate band…The prongs of the diamond are bezel set at the claw and hold a tiny diamond at the end of each prong…I was sooo excited that he got me this and broke his back saving money to purchase me this ring…But when my friends saw it they kept saying, “THAT HAS TO BE A FAKE”…And a week later while shopping one of these friends went with me to a jewelry store because I wanted to get it cleaned…She blurted out without tact to the jeweler…”That’s FAKE huh?”…So the jeweler tested and and proclamed it was entirely earth mined and real…This so called friend still said…”I THINK IT’S FAKE STILL”…The jeweler looked at her like she was out of her mind…and not to mention so did I…Now all they do when we are together is ask me to take my ring off so they could see if it’s “FAKE”…This is pissing me off what to say or do?…

I guess so, but it seems to be a stupid thing to be jealous over, ignore them

I wouldn’t be friends with someone so petty.

Um, your friends sound incredibly rude. I would do my best to ignore them, but if it gets to be too much I would tell them off.

….find new friends, it’s stupid to keep calling it fake and ridiculous for you to be upset.

I think it is ridiculous to assume anyone who doesn’t like or doesn’t believe something is real is jealous.
I don’t like large diamonds. If I saw a large diamond, I would assume it was fake, because large diamonds are expensive.
Am I jealous? No. I highly dislike large stones (especially diamonds) and lusting after it, or suffering jealousy would be the last thought on my mind.
Maybe they don’t like it? Does it matter?

That’s a huge diamond, no wonder people are questioning it. You know it’s real, so who cares?

@JoshlovesMimi: Perhaps instead of jealousy she is trying to say it as if “Wow, that is too big to be real, it has to be fake.” In her mind it could be a compliment. However, I will say that is the biggest downfall with larger carat jewelry. Most people are use to seeing smaller carats and just assume larger carat rings are fake. My mom has a 3.5 ct, ideal cut, G/SI2 round 25th anniversary ring from my dad, and when she wears it out she’s had people on more than one occassion ask where she got the ring because it was the “most realistic costume piece” they’ve ever seen. She usually just says “Oh my husband got it for me.” She doesn’t care if people think it is real or fake, in fact, she’d rather people think it was fake than having people know that she’s wearing a 30k ish rock on her finger. Usually she wears just her wedding band, so I can see why people would think it is fake.
