garnet113:  Bursting out laughing sounds like a good option in the “how to respond” category. 🙂

CaitlinAwesome:  That ring is awesome.

Vows are not about money, a ring, or a dress. It is about the promise you make to one another. Rings are simply a representation. One representation does not mean more than another just became the stone costs more.

I had a similar conversation with a colleague of mine who is actually a really close friend, she really struggled to understand why I wouldn’t want a diamond and thought I would regret it. She was never rude to me about it, just really couldn’t understand. I just explained to her about how I wasn’t willing to spend that much money on a ring (even if I would be wearing it for the rest of my life!!) when I have a serious mortgage and things to do on my house as well. Maybe after 10 years I can update…but for now having a cz ring doesn’t bother me at all and I feel much better about it!

The vow and the ring have nothing in common – some people are so superficial.

I think it’s people who are focused on rings aren’t focused on the vows

I wear a plain gold band to my job. I don’t care to show off my bling at work.

Whatever you decide is fine.  

The value you place on your commitment does not come from the amount of money you spend on diamonds gold or a wedding. Their perspective seems quite immature to me.

 

Old post but whatever.

 Your coworkes are ignorant. I concur with RayKay that a well make band would take the beating, but if you like your CZs…wear what you like.

nicoalann :  I’m sure there are hundreds of people in the world wearing diamond wedding rings who didn’t care about their vows when they went out and cheated or worse.

Good for you for being more open-minded. Your coworkers are just being silly.

nicoalann:  My engagement ring is morganite. And it’s small but pretty big compared to stone size that is commonly worn here. And some of my coworker said that “you can wear that big stone all you want but my 0.1 diamond is showing real true love and yours… not so much. Tell him to buy you diamond otherwise leave him.” FYI my ring also has diamond in the band though not as the center stone. But she said “well it doesnt count. Sorry but its ugly pink stone.” I was not even mad. I was laughing the entire time. What else can i do? She sounds like a joke! Just like your coworkers. 😂

All I can think is… Could you imagine if the size/quality of the ring(s) really DID represent a persons care/respect/loyalty for their marriage? What a world we would live in… Maybe just look at said dumb coworkers straight on, and ask them to explain EXACTLY HOW a ring proves a persons marriage-worthiness, specifically yours. And don’t accept them just saying something like ‘oh well it symbolizes marriage’ make them explain exactly how it makes you a better wife 😅 Watch them stumble and fall right there

Rude much? I would say it is none of thier bloomin’ business!, from what you have said it sounds like a sensible decision, plus it is your ring, who are they to tell you that you are being cheap or musn’t care about the vows etc. your ring your choice. 

I would hate to have a really expensive ring knowing full well it is likely to get damaged, it would put me off wearing it when it something you should feel comfortable wearing and look forward to!

They sound very materialistic and very stupid…

Like you said, your paycheck, your ring, if you happy with it then that is the most important thing, you certainly have no obligation to please your colleagues.
