the girl doing my nails one time asked if she could take a picture so she could show her boyfriend.  She couldn’t stop staring at it and kept moving my hand to make it sparkle.  Hahaha

I think when men compliment my ring it means the most. I have had several men tell me it was amazing, gorgeous, incredible etc and from a guy it is pretty awesome to hear.

My soon to be SIL gushed about my ring for 10 minutes.  She is a cloistered nun and we only see her twice a year, so she found out about our engagement months after everyone else.  It wasn’t one specific thing she said, it was that she went on and on forever about how beautiful it is, how much her brother loves me, what great taste he has, etc.  I adore her and wish that she didn’t live in a convent so that we could have a traditional relationship.

I work in a bank… A customer said “Wow you must be marrying the president of the bank!”

I’ve had a few on here – I posted it on a thread here to show coloured stones, and someone replied saying they always looked forward to seeing my ring in different threads

This morning, I saw a thread asking “Which Bee’s ring would you like?” and someone had posted mine! Pretty exciting news 🙂

But my absolute favourite real life compliment was from my 5 year old niece. She was in a toy shop and found a toy ring exactly like mine – she threw a tantrum until her parents bought it for her so she could be like her aunty. The first thing she said next time she saw me was “I like your yellow ring. Now I’ve got one!”
She’s our flowergirl in the wedding and really wants to carry my engagement ring down the aisle with our weddings rings – still not sure if she’ll take off with it or not Wink

I was in a store and the lady came from behind the counter and HELD onto my hand and kept asking if it was a real diamond. I took that as a compliment. Also, my hairdresser asked if she could take a pic of it on her phone to send to her Fiance to show how she wants her stone. She also has a halo e-ring but doesnt have one center stone. It is a cluster so she wants one like mine as her “upgrade.”

PS: It isnt even big so it made me feel good! lol

I’ve had a lot of compliments on my ring in general, from the “Oh, that’s so pretty” to “Wow, what a rock, and that is crazy sparkly!”, with a lot of compliments on the sparkle. 😀

Sparkle = why I picked it!

My favorite has to be a girl that comes in fairly regularly and just gushed over my beautiful ring, so I took it off and let her see it and gave her a brief overview of moissanite, and she and a few of her friends, every time they come in want to see my ring because they just love it almost as mucha as I do. 🙂

@LadyElva:  One of my favorite compliments is also from a kid!

My fiance’s best friend has a daughter who is like 4 years old. I have a pet bunny who is a hit with the kids, and I was letting the little girl hold the bunny. I reached out to show her how to pet the bunny, and the little girl gasped, grabbed my ring (on my hand still), and said, “WOW, I like that, where did you get it??” I replied that my fiance gave it to me, and she was all, “Do you think he’ll get me one too????” Her mother was all, “If he does, I’ll have to kill him. You’re not allowed to get engaged for thirty more years.” lols.

I had a client grab my hand and tell me once “Wow, you could abseil off the side of that sucker!”

When I was renewing my drivers licence the girl behind the counter was gushing about it and asked if I’d designed it myself. Nope, I didn’t.

Apparently my .3ct cathedral solitaire packs a punch!

A few days ago, a male customer at my work said, “Are you engaged to Jay Z or something? Your ring is GINORMOUS!” It was pretty funny and unexpected.

I’ve also had women customers who are shopping with their friend tell them to come over and see my ring and say they want to find a man who will give them one just like it.

I get quite a few compliments from my friends on a reg basis, but my favorite came from another jeweler on VDAy he told me the ring looked like a $4k ring (and I know what he paid for it and it was much less)

I love receving compliments from strangers, its awesome.

But TBH, my ultimate compliment is “it really suits you”… Because I think my ring is the most beautiful thing ever, that really is the best compliment to me!
