Who flipping cares?! If you love it, you love it. The world would be awully boring if some people’s jealousy didn’t liven things up a bit!

I know what you mean with the “it’s huge!” statement. Does that mean huge pretty or huge ugly or what?? You will never be able to please everyone even if you wanted to so I suggest wearing (and loving) the ring that YOU like best. Some people will like itm some people won’t and most won’t really care that much. People will always have a lot of crazy comments especially about something as individual as our preferences in ring design. To each his/her own! I personally think your ring is stunning. Rock it girl! Congrulations on your engagement!

After reading the subsequent posts in this thread I am a bit confused.  How can saying “It’s huge!” be construed as jealous or rude?  It’s a simple observation.  Now, if your friend looked at your hand with disdain and said “It’s huge!  I would rather wear a small ring and buy a house!” then you would have something to be upset about.  Embrace your big ring, girl!

@TG123:  Meh. Don’t feel guilty. Your ring is very pretty. As long as your not running around shoving it in people’s faces and rattling off the stats or making sure everyone knows the carat weight, cost, designer name – in short, not acting like a tool, you’re fine.

@MrsStayPuft:  I didn’t mean that it was rude that they told the OP it was big, I thought it was rude that they were saying it in a way that made her feel like she needed to change her ring for social approval reasons 🙂

Leave it as is! It’s not even that big. Who cares what people say.

@TG123:  I see you are from NZ.  This is my ring and it’s all diamonds and I’m in Oz.  I occasionally get comments that it’s “Huge” as I have a little hand but I just smile, say thankyou and that I am proud to wear a ring from my husband that will be an heirloom piece.  Don’t ever feel ashamed of your ring. It reflects your individuality.  If you feel the need, tell people that you preferred this to a diamond as it more suits your “style”.  But leave it at that.  You are not a child you has to explain yourself to people.

 

I think your ring is lovely.  If people make negative comments, just say “I’m sorry you feel that way” and leave them to stew in their own opinions.  Be gracious.

Cut it down if you don’t like it. Otherwise respond with “HELL YEAH it’s huge! So kind of you to notice!” And leave it at that. 

Also, from a personal opinion, I don’t think your ring looks oversized. But then again, I’m from Texas. So howdy, howdy, howdy, or whatever.

Ignore them – we all have differing ring tastes and opinions.

@TG123:  I would give it some time. It’s important that you love it. Still, you can’t change it back!
